Around the World in 80 Beers

After searching on Chowhound, Google and other forums, I have still come up short!

What we're searching for, is a bar in the GTA that has a promotion similar to Bottlescrew Bill's in Calgary seen here:

The promotion is called "Around the World in 80 Beers" and it involves having all eighty beers on the list and once it's all said and done, you get your name engraved on a plaque on the wall and other novelties. I've also seen this done at a bar in the U.S and so we are searching for a similar themed spot in Toronto or surrounding areas.

If anyone has a suggestion, we'd really appreciate it!

      I can't think of any Toronto bars that would have a worldly lineup and have anything like that.

      1. re: lister

        There are numerous bars in Toronto that have beer lists that would rival or exceed the lists above (Smokeless Joe, Bar Volo and Beer Bistro come to mind) but none of them to my knowledge have any sort of contest or competition like that to count their consumption. Personally, feeling like I needed to slog through a checklist would turn an enjoyable activity into a chore, but I can see how some people might find it fun.

    2. There's a place in Simcoe that has the whole engraved plaque deal for finishing their beer list. I realise it's far from T.O., but just reminded me of the place. It's a pub/Thai place??
