'Burbs & Beers

Collective Arts Brewing – The Alliance

Melissa Bies

Remember when Collective Arts Brewing launched last October?

In seven short months their Rhyme & Reason Pale Ale found a home in most LCBOs, they launched a second brew, Saint of Circumstance Blonde Ale*, AND, they announced another collaborative brewery with Nickel Brook Brewing to be opened in Hamilton.

Recently the brewery teamed up with Montreal-based artist and Osheaga Creative Director, Fred Caron, to host a special street-art show at Spazzio Dell’Arte Gallery in Toronto. The show featured the original work of a dozen street artists and illustrators from Montreal and Toronto, which will be found on a special edition of Collective Arts bottle labels (available in the LCBO in June).

I really dig the “art + beer” philosophy these guys are running with, and am not surprised they’ve found such quick success–art and music and events aside, they make tasty beer that I consistently find myself bringing home from the LCBO. Saint of Circumstance is a lighter brew than Rhyme and Reason, but still full of flavour–perfect for summer.
