Art, Events, and more coming up at Dundas & Sons Brewery
Dundas & Sons, a nano-brewery in Old East Village, has been turning out creative brews with experimental ingredients for many years now. On top of this, they’ve earned their stripes as quite the community hub for events of all sorts from dance to dinner parties.
Situated on the Southeast corner of Dundas and Adelaide, at the entrance to OEV, brewery owner Rob Dundas told us they have no intention of slowing down and will keep on doing things until they’re unable. These “things” include a whole host of community-minded initiatives that make Dundas & Sons more than a brewery.
In specific, along with a wide variety of locally sourced and creatively flavoured brews, Dundas & Sons offers the weekly drink specials Whiskey Wednesdays and Thirsty Thursdays, as well as live music. Upcoming they have the masterful guitar stylings of Mike Trudgen on September 25 and even more local tunes with Pat Murphy on September 26. With a selection of brews, live music, and an array of classic pub fare from their in-house kitchen, Doing Fine… we’d say an evening at Dundas & Sons is time well spent!
Of particular note however, the Brewery is holding a sitdown dinner event in celebration of “International talk like a pirate day” on September 19. Complete with a pirate costume contest, the music of local legends Captain Finn and the Salty Seadogs, and a seafood boil brought to you by Doing Fine, the event is sure to be a swashbuckling good time. To ensure proper social distancing and capacity, this is a seated event and tickets are sold in advance, check out this post for ticket details and DM @doing_fine_kitchen on Facebook or Instagram to reserve your seat!
Lastly but certainly not least, you can get your fill of local art at Dundas & Sons with their monthly rotating art shows that grace each wall of the brewery. Currently, you can check out the intimate line drawings of Chris Fex on the main wall, the sinisterly inviting work of Viki’s VooDoo Dolls, as well as a preview of the October showcase, brightly coloured paintings by Alicia Fournier.
As if Dundas & Sons doesn’t have enough on the go, Rob told us in the future they will be offering a retail component at the brewery with beef jerky and grocery offerings, take home cans will resume (you can still get growlers though!), and the opening of a full kitchen. As well, he said to watch out for Oktoberfest and Halloween celebrations on the horizon which will be planned according to public health guidelines as needed. As we said, there’s always something going down at Dundas & Sons!
Psst… Dundas & Sons accepts Construction Dollars, so get on out there and support!
