Venue Menu: Treat yourself to Toronto-inspired beer with a classic Chicago touch at Goose Island Brewhouse

Starters

Goose Island Beer Company has collaborated with Bier Markt to build Toronto’s premier Goose Island Brewhouse; a Chicago-based craft brewery in Old Town Toronto. This venue is approximately 19 years old and has been revamped into a cozy brewpub on The Esplanade.

CocktailsGoose Island (background)

The brewhouse is Goose Island Beer Company’s first endeavor into the Canadian brewery business. Premium beer is prepared at the state-of-the-art on-site brewery and is served from 12 taps. As you walk in, the well-lit space features modern wooden decor, complemented by rustic brickwork all throughout the venue. It also features very long bar, behind which sits seven fermentors.

Mains – Features

In the brewhouse, catch a full view of the brewery operations of head brewer Bernard Priest and his team, right from your seat. This casual, yet refined venue space has a capacity of 100 guests mingling and approximately 75 seated. It’s ideal for any social gathering such as a networking event, farewell party, or beer-paired dinner. The brewhouse also offers smaller dedicated sections for groups of 20-75. After your event, take home a Beer Growler (64oz) or Howler (32oz) of a brewed-in-house favourite! Do you have a bigger event? Book the brewhouse and Bier Markt Esplanade for a maximum of 700 guests mingling.

Sides

Enjoy al fresco dining at the Beer Garden. This outdoor space boasts a wall of homegrown hops climbing the surrounding four storeys of exposed brick. It’s an excellent space for a team building event or summer social. While enjoying craft brews paired with from-scratch cuisine, challenge a friend to Giant Jenga ® and Connect-4 ™.

Desserts – The Icing

The food menu was developed by Bier Markt Executive Chef Kevin Maniaci and Chef de Cuisine Shawn Jackson. The menu is seasonal, as the team uses fresh and local ingredients, with dishes designed to pair with the beers on tap.

Canadian Helen Keller Centre honours ROM at award luncheon

The Canadian Helen Keller Centre (CHKC) Award was launched in 2005 to recognize individuals and organizations for their notable contributions to the deaf-blind community in Canada. The event is hosted by–and is a project of–the Canadian Foundation for Physically Disabled Persons (CFPDP).

The deaf-blind community is a unique community of individuals with this dual disability. CFPDP aims to help change the way Canadians think about physical disabilities. For this, the CHKC and awards were launched. CHKC is Canada’s first training facility dedicated solely to deaf-blind persons. Programs include necessary everyday skills such as home organization, grooming, personal finance, computer skills, communication skills like sign-language and braille and many more.

On Friday, April 27, the 14th annual luncheon will be held at the Fairmont Royal York Hotel. This year, CHKC will honour the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM). The award will be accepted by Josh Basseches, Director & CEO, ROM and the guest speaker will be Josh Saunders.

On Friday, Aug 12, CityEvents hosted the last Schmooze of summer 2016. It’s true what they say, you always save the best for last! The blue and white lantern garden theme set a nice mood, transforming the patio yet again for a magical getaway from city life.

Although the forecast called for rain all week leading up to the event, Schmooze was a fighting-force and cleared the skies just in time for 5 p.m. when the doors opened! Guests enjoyed the heat, celebrating on the rooftop patio while sipping on cocktails crafted by drink sponsor Grey Goose. The cocktails were made of Grey Goose Vodka, with a splash of St-Germain Elderflower Liqueur, topped off with club soda, and served with a lime. It was a hit, and the perfect way to keep cool on the heat.

To say the food was good would be an understatement. Guests swarmed the food station eagerly awaiting the feast served by Treeline Catering. The tacos which consisted of a corn coleslaw, seasoned ground pork, and crispy onion, topped with a chipotle mayo. And as if those weren’t enough, there was also barbecued corn on the cob seasoned with butter and spices.

The patio was filled with happy Schmoozers enjoying the last few weeks of summer. DJ Spence Diamonds had the music blasting throughout the night which kept everyone happy and dancing.

Although this was CityEvents’ last Schmooze of the summer, Maison Mercer will continue to host Schmooze every Friday until September 2! We also have many upcoming events! To stay up to date, be sure to check out our website for full event listings. http://torontocityevents.ca/
