Ground Control to Toronto: THRUST! an IPA liftoff

THRUST! an IPA is back in the Galaxy and will be landing GLB retail store this Saturday, November 3rd.

Take the rocket (TTC) to Etobicoke for an afternoon of out of this world beers & THRUST! Smoked BBQ ribs from The Wavy Wall Craft Kitchen!
And, because we think that you’ll think it’s cool, our own Baylee Bonnell (this one) will be doing a LIVE THRUST! an IPA mural painting in the brewery for customers to sit and gaze at. Take pics of the mural progression and be sure to post on social using the #THRUSTanIPA hashtag.

That’s not all? NO! We’ll have live music too, courtesy of Nick Densmore, the GLB retail store & taproom Manager. His angelic voice and wizardly hands will take the stage (well, a chair) between 1:30pm and 3:30pm.

473ml cans of THRUST will retail for $3.50 each and $78 for a case.

We’ll also be releasing Farmer Jared’s Session Rye Ale, brewed in Collaboration with Jared from VQH Farms. Jared grew and malted his own rye, which we used to produce the beer and obvisously we threw in a whack of VQH Hops. We’ll also have a very traditional Vienna Lager available in cans to complement our 12 taps of #FreshGLB, including 2 NITRO lines (Shinny Pants Session Stout and Harry Porter and The Pedantic Plum).

So, why did we recommend you take the rocket (TTC) to the brewery instead of your reliable automobile? Well, because someone at the City of Toronto wanted to mess with our release day and they decided that this was the perfect weekend to close the Gardiner Expressway for fall maintenance. With that diatribe out of the way, here are some efficient ways to get here to your favourite brewery in Etobicoke.

Ride The Bloor line to Royal York Station and board the #15 Bus (Evans to Sherway) or the #76 bus (Royal York south to lakeshore). Disembark at Sinclair and Royal York. Walk West on Queen Elizabeth BLVD for 2 mins and you have arrived.


GO Train
Jump on the GO Train and head to Mimico station. Take a lovely stroll north over the Royal York bridge and watch the construction workers fix the Gardiner from above. Turn west onto Queen Elizabeth Blvd and walk the 2 minutes to heaven (we mean GLB).

If coming from the east, take the scenic tour of Queen Street West and Lakeshore and travel through many different neighbourhoods. It’s quite lovely. Jump off at Lakeshore and Royal York road and grab the 76 Bus. Wave to all the people walking on the sidewalks and pull that cord when you hear the driver say “Dalesford”. Cross the street (Look both ways please) and walk the 2 minutes down Queen Elizabeth Blvd. If coming from the west, enjoy the Lakeshore scenery from Longbranch.

Drive a Car
Head west along Bloor and turn south onto Royal York. Turn west on Queen Elizabeth Blvd.

Head west along Queen Street or King Street until it becomes the Queensway. Turn south on Royal York and west on Queen Elizabeth Blvd.
Head east along the QEW and get off at the exit for Evans. Take Evans until Royal York then turn north on RY then left on Queen Elizabeth Blvd.
Take the 401 (haha) to 427 south and get off at The Queensway exit.
Just turn on your damn GPS or phone for directions…
