Snoopy wants to extend a very heartfelt thank you to our wonderful customers, staff, vendors and friends who have made these past six months surpass our wildest expectations. We had high hopes for everything Black Lab would be but our customers, pop-up vendors, local breweries and passionate staff have inspired us to make better beers and build our tap room into something we could not have dreamed about six months ago. With two new tanks arriving next week and plans to expand our barreling program, we are very excited to continue to learn and improve our products over the next six months and continue to offer a gathering spot for this wonderful community.
Do you have any feedback for us? Please leave it in the comments below, send us a message or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org - we want to know what you like and what we can do better for you.
Thank you @dogphotographer for these beautiful photos of @blacklab_snoopy and our brewery.

Join us tomorrow for @whatsontapas’ first pop up serving Chorizo a la Sidra, Tomato Bread, Bacon-wrapped Dates and Tres Leches Cake. They will be popping up from 1pm until sold out and we would love it if you would come support their debut here at Black Lab!

Have you seen the Don’t You Want Me Exhibit hanging at Black Lab?
@dontyouwantmeproject is a global documentary photography project showcasing the beauty and resilience of LGBTQ people with their rescued dogs. Coupling compelling images and personal narratives, Don’t You Want Me shows that individuals of all stripes have the ability to transform their lives when they are given love. And the question of ‘who rescued who’ becomes universal, no matter how you identify.
Trans people simply need the same as everyone else - love, purpose and family. Despite the increased awareness of trans issues, the appalling fact is that the attempted suicide rate of trans people remains unchanged at around 43%. Trans peoples’ stories are a powerful, resilient, previously silenced voice teaching society how discrimination and gender inequalities harm us all.
Don’t You Want Me documents a global community. Deb Klein (@debkleinphoto) and Jack Jackson (@jackjacksonto) - both photographers and believers in the human-animal connection - use the photographic lens to capture the intimacy and emotional heartbeat of the bond and entice the audience into the lives of their subjects. Currently in Toronto, Brighton UK, and NYC, this ongoing photo project (and ultimately book) reaches out across borders, from North America and Europe, and onward.
The Exhibit is hanging at Black Lab for the month of April and will be moving to The Dock on Queen for the month of May.

Arts & Crafts & Craft Beer & Pizza. It just makes sense.
@itsokitsart will be setting up some incredibly fun stuff here on Thursday and, of course, we'll be serving up some pretty tasty beer.
Not only that, but @marks_pizzas will be on hand to bake up Fresh & Hot Pizzas to order. (Don't get any sauce on your artwork!)
There will be some ADULT COLOURING PILLOWS on hand to purchase, but we suggest you PRE-ORDER your own Pillow Colouring Kit via the link in our bio. Choose from over 30 cheeky designs! Don't worry, an expert will be on hand to guide you through all the Adult Colouring INs & OUTs.
A Dog Friendly event as per usual.
