Last Thursday it was my younger brother Patrick's birthday and it just so happened that Nigel was taking the Sneaky Cheats team out to cater an event to launch a new beer at the new Copper Bottom Brewery that just opened in Montague. The brewery is located on top of a hill overlooking Montague River which is located in the south eastern end of Prince Edward Island. I spent a lot of time as a kid growing up in Montague because my mothers side of my family is from there. I haven't been there in years though and it was great to be back even if it was only for a few hours. We had some great food and great laughs accompanied by live music and unlimited beer flowing. If you're ever in that neck of the woods, I highly suggest checking out Copper Bottom.
It's pretty comforting to be in a school bus full of east coasters sipping road beers headed to the Collective Arts Brewery in Hamilton. Skratch Bastid was performing at the brewery for the 'Series Six Bash In The Brewery' along side The Darcy's and Grand Analog. I think we can all say we had a great night and a very hazy ride back to Toronto. If you're not familiar with Collective Arts, they're a wicked craft brewery located in Hamilton, Ontario that is dedicated to promoting emerging artists and musicians. If you're an IPA lover go get yourself some Rhyme & Reason!
