Ides of September: Gladstone English Pale Ale

| /

Established in 1889, Gladstone House is the oldest operating hotel in the city. It has continued to be a part of Toronto's history, as one of the first hotels in Ontario to get a license to serve alcohol, to an architectural icon, to a present day hub for art and culture. 

Copper in colour, with notes of toasty malts, citrus and grapes, this English Pale Ale was inspired by what we imagine was enjoyed in the hotel at the turn of the 20th century.  Its firm bitterness and dry finish, as well as a low ABV of 4.5%, make this ale a refreshing partner to a number of classic pub dishes. Try it alongside a hearty shepherd's pie, classic fish & chips or a nice Sunday roast.
