153/801) Monk's Kettle, Etobicoke:  Green Man by Flying Monkeys of Ontario:  **;  an India Pale Lager;  my receipt read Little Green Man but the chalkboard read Green Man and that is what the bartender called it;  floral nose;  sweet, gingerly floral hoppiness with a bitter aftertaste; 

154/802) Monk's Kettle, Etobiocke:  Barn Raiser by Oast House Brewers of Ontario:  *1/2;  an American Pale Ale;  floral hoppiness;  not so hoppy to the taste, in fact it is rather sweet;

I was in need of a drink at this point.  I had attended a recital at a Catholic church in the west end of Parkdale, which is to say the as yet un-gentrified part.  The priests and deacons were out in full force to enjoy the music and I have to say they were some pretty rough looking fellows.  It was intimidating to see a group of men resembling prize fighters, clad in white collars and long black robes standing on the steps of a church smoking.  They looked quite menacing.
