Oct 6: Kingston Brewing Company ★★
Kingston Brewing Company calls itself Canada's oldest brew pub. It is tucked away behind Woodenheads near the Four Points Sheraton, so innocuous that it is often missed. Yet as deserted the patio might look, the inside lair is bustling with regulars. The brew pub experience is one of eclecticism. Memorabilia line every inch of useable wall-space and the meandering menu is a comedy routine. Every table comes with a stack of trivia cards, which may be enough reason to come to KBC alone. I learnt that Hawaii was the only state that ended with three vowels, useful knowledge indeed. Unfortunately, the food was only as good as expected from a place as this. The chicken was not fresh, the coleslaw seemed dodgy, the lump of mash potatoes was a slurpy disaster, and the vegetables were uninventive. Furthermore, the homebrewed beer was subpar. Perhaps there is a reason this establishment has escaped the public eye.
Rotisserie chicken with garlic mashed potatoes and veggies are featured (~$15)
