For our September pub night, we’re heading to Lipstick & Dynamite on Queen. Featuring local craft pints and tall boy cans, plus a menu full of fresh food that skews toward the vegetarian, there’s something for everyone. Did I mention board games and pinball? For those of you with a Craft Beer Passport, bring it along – they’re on there.
Monday September 15th
Lipstick & Dynamite
992 Queen Street, between Shaw and Ossington
It’s time to escape the concrete!
It’s August, and we’re heading to the cottage! Ok, so not really, but The Rebel House’s patio is the next best thing that’s on the subway line. Chill, green and serving up great beers, this is our cottage in the city get-away where we can easily kill an afternoon soaking up rays pretending we’re in Muskoka.
We also have swag to give out, including a super-cool Craft Beer Passport, Barley’s Angels Tees and a few other surprises!

I love that tagline and it’s so true. Every six-pack you buy from Collective Arts Brewing is a mini gallery. I’ve been a fan of theirs for awhile now. I love their beer (their Saint of Circumstance is one of my favourite patio beers this summer) but as someone who enjoys the arts, their support of new and upcoming artists is what makes them special.
The labels feature artwork from both visual artists and musicians. There’s not much space on a beer label for non-beer related stuff but if you want to know more about the artists, they have an app for that. It’s called Blippar. You use it to scan the label and it takes you to enhanced content, like videos and artist bios. The Collective Arts website also features galleries of each label series (there have been 3 main series and 2 special limited series so far) and hosts videos from their Black Box Sessions. These are simple but fantastic videos of featured musicians shot at the Indie88 sound studio.
Series 3 has just launched at the LCBO and features 84 artists from around the world, selected from over 1200 entries. Anyone can submit their art for consideration and the finalists are picked by a panel of experts. There are plenty of talented Toronto women included in the mix, so check them out!
