queen street 501 cider

Toronto gets a cider named after the 501 Queen streetcar

There's a new way to show your hometown pride in Toronto -- drinking! The Brickworks Ciderhouse is set to release its Queen Street 501 just in time for summer sipping. While drinking this cider on the streetcar is not necessarily advised (lest something like this reoccur), should you decide to don a Leafs jersey, pop some Drake on your iPod, and sip away, you might just experience the most quintessential Toronto moment possible.

Speaking of Toronto, I'm going to be annoying and point out that the photo the Ciderhouse has used for its flyer depicts an old PCC streetcar travelling along Carlton and not Queen (that's Maple Leaf Gardens in the background), but it's a minor nitpick given that we're getting a new craft cider to enjoy.

The launch party for the new offering will be held on one of the TTC's vintage streetcars between 7:30pm and 11:30pm on the 28th, though curiously it will begin at Betty's, which would typically be reached by travelling along the King 504. Oh well. It still sounds fun.
