The Local 7 We're a collective of Toronto's best beer bars: The Auld Spot Pub, Bar Hop, Bydens, Bar Volo, C'est What, The Only Cafe, and WVRST Beer Hall.
In 2014, The Local 7 was brought together in support of Griffin SESSION Toronto Craft Beer Festival and Ontario Craft Beer Week to create a beer that would bring the new season in with at BANG! From there, Brewmaster Sam Corbeil of Sawdust City came up with the recipe and brewed this delicious Saison.
This year, we're back and a new beer is in the works. Check back for news on this, and more.

The Griffin Pub 9 chancery lane, Bracebridge The Griffin Pub was purchased in 2008 by Jed Corbeil and Curt Dunlop with the idea of creating a craft beer hub in the north. We love beer, music, food and people, so our vision was clear and we dove in head first. With a great response to the craft beer movement in Muskoka, we created Griffin SESSION Muskoka (aka The Muskoka Beer Festival) to bring more breweries and bigger live music acts to Muskoka. From there, we took our festival South and started Griffin SESSION Toronto as the premier event for Ontario Craft Beer Week. Last year we started a project to bring the best 7 bars in Toronto to create an idea for a cutting edge great beer to get beer lovers excited about Summer and our beer festival.
This year we are very excited to bring a new beer to market with this great group. We are proud to feature the official beer of Griffin SESSION Toronto on June 13th at Y&D square and support Ontario Craft Beer Week. Get your tickets at www.sessiontoronto.com.
