Ides 83: Jack Sharp

Rum Raisin Imperial Stout11%

Jack Sharp, brave, smart, loyal, a strong swimmer, & a very good boy, has the distinction of having been Toronto’s founding dog.  This very likable Newfoundlander is also the inspiration for our Ides #83;  A warming imperial stout with rum-infused raisins. A special thanks goes out to Toronto's Nickel 9 distillery for supplying their delicious Island Diaz Spiced Rum.
