Spirit Tree Hop Cider Release: Friday, May 30th @ 12pm 

From Spirit Tree Cidery: To celebrate 5 years in the Ontario Craft Cider Industry, we are pleased to announce the release of our newest cider, Spirit Tree 5th Anniversary Dry-Hopped Cider.  Crafted from cider produced from our 2013 apple harvest, and organically grown Ontario hops, our Dry-Hopped cider is the first in the line of new small batch craft ciders to be released. Historically, hops were used as a natural preservative in cider.  It imparts a bitterness that elevates the fruit character and increases the body and mouthfeel.  On consultation with Ontario hop growers, we selected a combination of Chinook & Cascade hops to complement our cider.  Dry hopped for 4 days & lightly filtered – this cider will surprise beer & cider enthusiasts alike.

Come try Spirit Tree’s 5th anniversary Dry-hopped cider at Bar Volo on May 30th, 2014.  As a prelude to Ontario Craft Cider Week (June 2 to June 7) – this event will highlight our small batch ciders;  dry-hopped cider, draught cider, New England cider, pear cider, plus bottles of applelager, crabapple and 2013 estate reserve.



Celebrate NYE with barVolo on Tuesday, December 31st. No admission, no dress code, no tickets just good times and good booze. Open until 2am. All advertised items below are subject to change and availability.

Le Trou Du Diable X John Wright Punk Rauch Tasting

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 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.
