Beer tasting with the peat brothers
IPA, APA, EPA...Here’s a PSA: With so many craft beers on the market, you should know what you’re drinking! We admit: it is fun to pick a beer based on the name. It isn’t so much fun when you realize it’s a strong bitter beer and you’re in the mood for a light wheat. In comes Jimmy and John, the brewmasters from Longslice Brewery to guide you through the delightful adventure of tasting beers. At the end, you’ll have to drink MORE beer to test your new found knowledge. Now, how about a Doppelbock?
Gratuities not included.
The tale of Longslice begins with two young hooligans, brothers Jimmy & John Peat. Hailing from Bracebridge, the Peat Brothers were seeking solutions to stock their high school parties with boatloads of beer. They weren’t yet old enough to buy beer, but they were old enough to buy all the ingredients. And so, with some help from their father, a passion for basement brewing was born.
Fast-forward fifteen years and several dozen batches of homemade hooch, and the Peat Brothers have mastered the art of craft brewing. They knew that the time had come to shape their pursuits into a real, bonafide, Toronto-based brewery. Enter longtime friend Sebastian Lesch; a legend among those who know him.
Longslice Brewery was born on March 20th, MMXIV (that’s 2014, but it looks way cooler in Roman Numerals). The brothers agreed to take turns concocting new recipes each time they brew, and Jimmy set the bar high with Longslice’s first official brand, Hopsta La Vista - a hybrid English/American Style IPA that is now served at a number of fine drinking establishments across the great city of Toronto as well as select LCBO's!
