This microbrewery provides an incredibly creative and cozy environment to taste their delicious beer and food. The artwork on their product is wildly colourful and the decor in the bar/eatery is eye catching!

This place was never originally "The Flying Monkeys" God it reminds me the wizard of OZ. It was the Robert Simpson Brewery. Some beers have not changed much. Odd name for a company just like "Sawdust Lager" from Gravenhurst. Strange name for a beer. However...More
