A little history of our inspiration, the Whisky A Go-Go: This club started in the early 60’s in Hollywood, Los Angeles, CA. It became the stomping grounds and launching pad for many bands. Van Morrison, Neil Diamond, and the Doors all had residencies there, and Led Zeppelin and Janis Joplin played there as well. Later, Soundgarden, Mudhoney, and the Melvins got in. A 500 person venue, it’s been the place to play for over 50 years.

“Simcoe is so versatile. The original craft rock and roller that’s still got street cred. It still plays small venues, while filling arenas. And also, I fuckin’ love this hop.” Matt Coughlin, Lead Brewer
