Plank Road Baltic Porter

Salutations craft beer lovers!

We are very excited for our special event this week to celebrate our 2nd year anniversary, as well as the release of a new beer. On Thursday, February 9th from 6pm-2am, Muddy York will be taking over 9 taps at Lake Inez, a recently opened restaurant and bar at 1471 Gerrard St. E. in Toronto. We really hope you can join us!

To mark the occasion, we concocted a new brew called Plank Road Baltic Porter. This is a stronger, more refined version of a porter that comes in at 8.8%. We’ve lagered this beer for over 2 months at just above freezing, to produce a very smooth and mellow character despite it’s higher ABV. It has a silky, full body with plenty of malt character. This character is complimented by a noticeable vinous quality with notes of cocoa and sweet coffee, finishing with a pleasant alcohol warmth. Taste this new beauty at Lake Inez first!

Now, a little background on plank roads in our fine city. Plank roads were once dirt and mud paths that were covered with wooden planks. Built for wagons, it was a great improvement in transportation, often built by turnpike companies (i.e., first examples of toll roads!!!) The Don and Danforth Plank Road Company built Danforth Ave in 1851, connecting it to Broadview Ave and creating a viable route to surrounding communities.

Hoping to see you all soon!

2nd Year of Beer

Happy New Year!

Please join us as we celebrate our 2-year anniversary at our new favourite east-end spot Lake Inez on Thursday, February 9th. If you haven't checked this place out yet, we promise you won’t be disappointed. You’ll be transported into a cozy, elegant space with no shortage of nostalgia. Chef Robbie Hojilla Asian-inspired bar food is a delicious mix of large and small sharing plates and the beer taps are impressive, not to mention beautiful (the glass mural is exquisite!) We are lucky enough to hold 9 taps that night and we will also be unveiling a brand new anniversary brew, our Plank Road Baltic Porter for the very first time! You don’t want to miss this. We would really love to thank and congratulate our friends at The Wren (also at the helm of Lake Inez) for all the support they’ve shown us over the last two years.

Big News! A first step to building our taproom is underway this week. We are polishing the concrete floors so if you plan on visiting us, please excuse the dust! We are going to keep the retail shop open all week for you but there might be a few moments we need to keep out of the worker’s way. Perhaps some kind of craft beer walk-up window should be implemented? Lol.

Hoping to see you all soon!
