The common will be closed for our annual summer break (from August 6- August 12). We will be back to regular hours on Monday, August 13th. We hope everyone is having a great summer and look forward to bringing you lots of great events in the upcoming months.
Our fifth beer collaboration is launching July 12th! For our fifth collaborative brew we worked with Edmonton nano-brewery, Bent Stick Brewing, and local Edmonton rock band, The Wet Secrets. Combining their love for beer and rock & roll, the Hopstache Red ISA was crafted. A hop-forward beer with a slight hazy amber colour and aromas of citrus and tropical fruit. A light malt backbone provides a grainy malt sweetness to the brew that balances out the Citra and Mosaic hoppy goodness. The Hopstache Red ISA finishes clean, light and super-dry.
The Hopstache Red ISA will launch Thursday July 12th with a streetcar cask party, hosted by Sherbrooke Liquor, followed by The Wet Secrets show at 9910 where they will be playing their recently released album, The Tyranny Of Objects! The beer will launch on tap at The Common on Friday, July 13th, as part of a Bent Stick Brewing tap take-over that will run July 13th to July 27th.

Meet 9910 Problems Hay-Z IPA! A collaborative beer between the Common and Parallel 49 brewing. Over the past few months we teamed up to work on a beer that would represents the best from us both and we’re extremely proud of the result. 9910 problems (garnering it's name from our address and inspired by our love of music as a play on Jay Z's 99 problems ) is a Hazy IPA that boasts peach & tropical fruit aromas while flavours of honeydew, grapefruit flesh and peach rise up to meet the palate. Although Hay-z is an IPA, it is light-bodied and sessionable. It finishes with a resiny edge that is unexpected but also complimentary to this beer. The Malts include - Pale, Oat and Melanoidin, and the Hops in the recipe include Mosaic, Amarillo, Simcoe. Hazy IPAs, or New England IPAs are favourite amongst customers and staff alike at the Common, and pair well with burgers, chicken and beef dishes.

Canada’s very own party-rocking turntable champion AKA Skratch Bastid is back at the Common
Having rocked the bar many times, Skratch Bastid is now ready to raise it. The Bastid has become one of Canada’s most in-demand DJs and respected producers, but don’t think it happened overnight. From his humble beginnings a decade ago as a teenager in Halifax- pumping out mixtapes from his bedroom and earning a loyal following already back then- he slowly spread his skills first at DJ competitions like DMC, ITF, and Scribble Jam and now around Canada and the world as a widely recognized go-to guy for party-rocking. The illest redhead on turntables has since gone viral.
