July Beer Of The Month

 

Local 7 Session Saison

 

24 IBU, ABV: 6.5%

 

A collaboration between C'est What and six other local craft beer purveyors that was brewed by Sawdust City's brewmaster Sam Corbiel. A raspberry lemon verbena saison that is dry with a hint of lemon and just enough tart, refreshing raspberry to keep you coming back for more. It has a pinkish hue and the tickle of champagne like carbonation. It is the kind of beer that is great on a hot summer day and pairs wonderfully with a summer salad or white meats.

Brooklyn Doran, 1951, Christopher Blades

 

Tuesday July 29, 9 PM, PWYC

 

Toronto is a flourishing city with a rich and diverse cultural landscape that is constantly shifting. This ever-changing environment creates both an exciting and contemplative vibe, much like the musical stylings of Brooklyn Doran. In her debut EP, "There's A Light On", Brooklyn Doran (originally from Kenora, Ontario) has presented to us a collection soulful and original songs capturing a love letter to the city she now calls home. Her lyrics are honest, vulnerable, and clever. She delivers each song with crisp, clear vocals infused with passion and ease. Brooklyn Doran's music is an unique and harmonious blend of Jazz and Indie-Folk. This impressive EP offers a great variety of tunes, including her popular single, "Lansdowne" a blues-inspired ballad and a catchy jazz/folk track, "There's A Light On". Brooklyn Doran represents an exciting generation of emerging and original talent in Toronto, and this EP is a wonderful launch to a brilliant career in music.

 

The year the term "rock and roll" was coined. 1951 (pronounced "Nineteen Fifty One") was initially started as a studio project by producer Dan Hosh & songwriter Mike Tudisco. With the release of 2011's "The Light That Went Away," the band quickly began touring across Southern Ontario, winning over audiences with their own brand of atmospheric indie rock. When the band took a hiatus to work on their sophomore release, 1951 enlisted Mario Da Silva (Lead Vocals) and Kevin Dennison (Guitar) to edge out a fresh perspective on their new record. In 2013, all four members of the group re-located to Toronto, Ontario to put more focus on the band. "The best and worst part about 1951 is that every member of the band is a songwriter," recounts Hosh. "We always have a daunting mountain of songs waiting for us. Living together allowed us to write songs more efficiently."
