Pinky and the Grain

Pinky and the Grain, held at Oast House Brewery- brought together industry leaders, professionals, and design icons from inner Niagara circles to share a toast to Oast in support of Breast Cancer Research.

A veritable who’s-who rubbed elbows amongst stainless brew tanks, reciprocating saws and 2×4’s, happily gaining a taste for Oast House Brewers; a much anticipated brewery soon-to-open.  To fit the pink cause, brewmaster and partner Kevin Sommerville hand-crafted a one-off grapefruit beer to delicately match the tropical citrus flavours served up by Ms. Jensen from Niagara’s favourite gourmet truck El Gastronomo Vagabundo.

Reclaimed barnboard, wide-planked floors, weathered metal accents and rustic antiques warmed the guests against the damp rainy day, fittingly setting a casual, laid-back vibe for this new Niagara brewhouse. Partner/owner Mike Berlis, suggests the Oast House will run much like a winery, with tours, tasting and a retail space.  Happy on pink brew, the crowd was enthusiastic for this idea- content in knowing that this event signalled more beer yet to come.
