When I figured out that October’s Bevy would be on Halloween night itself, I was more than a little excited. I also knew exactly what my costume would be, I just had to find it. Luckily I stumbled upon a blog.to article about costume shops in Toronto and it led me to Theatrix Costume House. When we found the store early last month, I had only a very vague idea of what I wanted but I showed the staff my business card and they quickly found me several potential options. The beer mug purse (yes, that’s a purse and it might be the best thing ever) was more of a challenge: I knew I needed some kind of over-sized beer to carry around or I would just be another cat but I was having no luck finding the right prop. I had just about given up when I turned a corner and saw this magnificent creation. I might just have to use it for all future beer events as it simply amuses me far too much.
As with every event before it, the Society of Beer Drinking Ladies‘ Bevy 0010 was tons of fun with great ladies (and men for a change), beautiful artwork, good tunes, and – most importantly – a wide selection of tasty brews. And for the second month in a row we were treated to a one-of-a-kind, one-time creation that was so good it made me sad from the first sip that I would not have another chance to find it. To read all about this spicy and rich, never-to-be-seen-again porter, and the slightly more accessible alternative offerings, read on below!
