Golden Tap Awards

We'll try not to read too much into this but our founder, George Milbrandt, snagged an award at the Golden Taps. We are not sure exactly what it was for - something to do with still being alive after firing some of the first shots in the craft beer revolution three decades ago. An award for age and perseverance? Well, age anyway.

Mosaic City Interview 

George was asked to provide a bit of background on Toronto Beer Week in an interview on Mosaic City. You can listen to the podcast online at edgecast


Featured Show


The Julien Dionne Comedy Hour

with Garage Baby Wednesday October 8 and 22, 9:00 PM


Tickets $10 (all-in) at TicketFly

When Julien Dionne found himself in a cubicle, soaked under the greenish-glare of fluorescent lighting, at first he thought he was hallucinating after a bad slip and fall. But it was actually much worse. He had slipped and fallen right into “real life”. In addition to a regular pay cheque and the potential for a nice little pension in forty years, the whole thing gave him one big all-over body rash. When the itching became too much, he ran from the watercooler to the stage, trading his briefcase for a mic.

Quickly becoming an oft-chanted name on the Canadian comedy circuit, this financial-advisor-turned-comedian has been Nominated for a Canadian Comedy Award, toured relentlessly from coast-to-coast and can be heard regularly on XM/Sirius Satellite radio. He has performed at the Hubcap Comedy Festival in Moncton where is was dubbed “Funniest Comedian in New Brunswick”. Julien has also lived in New York City where he spent 2 years honing his craft along side some of the best comedians in the world.

At the bi-weekly Comedy Hour some of Canada's funniest people work through new material with house band Garage Baby.
