We The North

So did anyone catch the Toronto Raptors game Saturday night? If you didn’t, you missed out!

Now normally during the week I can’t really watch the series because I’m asleep before the game even starts, but Game 6 was a treat because I was able to watch the whole game.

We decided to head to our friend’s Chris and Kelly’s for a little BBQ and some local Ontario beers to celebrate the Raptors!

No Name – Loblaws (President’s Choice) – Brampton

Yes, that’s right, Loblaw’s came out with a No Name Beer if you haven’t heard already.  This lager is 5% ABV.  It delivers a crisp finish and makes it easy taste.

Our average rate: 3 out of 5

Now for those that missed the game, you definitely missed out. To give you a quick rundown, the Raptors were down for most of the game. They came back in the 4th quarter to beat the Milwaukee Bucks 100 to 94.
