Mr West is showcasing the best of Canada for #PoO22

PoO 2022 at Mr West will be showcasing some of the best craft beer Canada has to offer. We have multiple events throughout the week with exclusive launches, tap takeovers, collaboration brews with Bellwoods, Range, Collective Arts & Burnley and... a matched flight with Timbits.

Kicking off the week on Friday 20th we are launching two collaboration beers with Bellwoods and Range. The first is 'Jam King' which was brewed in Canada by Bellwoods. Jam King is a mashup of Bellwoods’ Jelly King series and Range’s JAM series, as well as a nod to the beloved Australian candy bar, Cherry Ripe. Secondly, we have 'Orchid Theif', brewed by Range in Brisbane which is inspired by Bellwoods Ghost Orchid IPA. We will be tapping up 13 Bellwoods beers at the event and will also be the first launch venue in Australia for Bellwoods Jelly King being in cans for the first time. This event will be part of a nationwide launch.

On election day, Saturday 21st, we have teamed up with the legends at Burn City Smokers and Bellwoods to bring you a Democracy BBQ lunch. Burn City will be putting on a feast of their famous BBQ with a Canadian twist and the Mr West team will be matching each course with a selection of delicious Bellwoods beers. There’s no better way to treat yourself after a long wait at the voting polls! Tickets will be available through the Mr West website.

After the huge success of our Tim Tam and Dark Beer matched pairing event last year, we have stepped it up and gone bigger! Tuesday the 24th we bring you Flight Night - Timbits and Dark Beers. Inspired by the famous Tim Hortons Timbits, we have teamed up with local Spotswood bakery, Candied, to recreate our very own bite-sized donuts downunder. 4 flavours and 4 matched beers chosen by our in-house Cicerone Jack. This is an open event, so come down from 4pm onwards to order your flight at the bar. Breweries on tap for the night include Third Moon - Blood Brothers – Les Trois Mousquetaires - Bellwoods - Collective Arts - Fairweather - Messorem Bracitorium - Brasserie Dunham.

On Thursday the 26th we are excited to be hosting the Australian launch of Montreal based Messorem Bracitorium. Their IPA game in particular has seen them become extremely well respected and sought after. They are also very passionate about their lagers, heavily fruited sours & stouts. There will be 7 kegs on pour and 8 cans available, a number of which are exclusive to the launch events.

To close off the week on Sat the 28th we have a Collective Arts Tap Takeover and are bringing back one of our all-time fave collaborations. We've teamed up with Burnley Brewing and Collective Arts to rebrew our Chocolate Malt (Milo) Milkshake Breakfast Stout… this time with Nitro! There will be 9 Collective Arts taps showcasing an epic range of limited releases including fun fruited sours, fresh IPAs, imperial stouts, and premium lagers. Some of which were brewed at their Toronto Brewhouse and are exclusive to Mr West.
