Le Trou Du Diable X John Wright Punk Rauch Tasting


Join us on Thursday, November 28th from 6pm-9pm for a casual tasting of the newly released “Punk Rauch” from Brasserie Le Trou Du Diable (, a limited collaboration between the brewery and punk rock legend John Wright from Nomeansno / Hanson Brothers. This event will be part of a nation wide launch in every major city Le Trou Du Diable distributes their beer including: British Columbia (Bierkraft), Quebec City(Versa), Edmonton(TBD) and Montreal (Maison Publique) All of the following beers will be available by the glass and bottle serving size:

  • Le Trou Du Diable Buteuse Brassin Special

  • Le Trou Du Diable Le Purgatoire Archeoporter
  • Le Trou Du Diable Saison Du Tracteur
  • Le Trou Du Diable Punk Rauch
  • Le Trou Du Diable X barvolo 25th Anniversary 

 John Wright from Nomeansno and Hanson Brothers (, is known and appreciated internationally for his contribution to punk rock music over the last three decades .But what some may not know is he is also a passionate amateur-brewer. After many years and many batches he has perfected a beer he is very proud of. 

Punk Rauch is a smoked lager in the old Bavarian tradition introduced to modern Barrel aging. Hosted two months in a bourbon barrel, it offers a scent of earthy hops on a background of wood and smoked ham. The taste, light and crusty, provides a short sensation of sweet malt quickly instigating a lively scrap with toasty resinous smoke reminiscent of a tasty brew around the campfire.  


In the midst of a never ending list of beer events, we have managed to squeeze in one more (probably the most important) before this years Cask Days, our 25th anniversary. Join us this Saturday (September 28th) starting at 8pm for a very casual, laid back celebration of our quarter century history at 587 Yonge St. To commemorate this celebration Ralph has been busy brewing special one off collaborations with some of our closest industry friends for the event….and there will also be a special keg of Cantillon Iris. Check out the full beer list below. Hope to see everyone Saturday! (No Admission, No Tickets)
