Located at 277 Alexander Street, The Old Toad is nothing short of your traditional British local. From the staff to the food and ales, everything is purely authentic. Even the bar itself was imported from Great Britain. Truly “a pub from over there, over here”.

Since its establishment in 1990, The Old Toad has built a reputation for providing friendly, excellent service. We offer a wide range of beer - from real ales, imports, and local favourites, to our very own custom brews. In addition, we serve traditional British meals as well as contemporary pub grub (including vegetarian meals). This is a relaxed atmosphere, there are no televisions or blaring jukeboxes here. So please, come in and see what all the fuss is about, mate. We promise, you’ll be glad you did.

Victory Rare Beer Tasting. Wednesday 8th October. 7PM

Victory Brewing Co. is highly regarded as one of the best breweries on the East Coast. Hailing from Downingtown, PA they are known for their fantastically hopped Pilsners, brilliantly balanced IPAs and of course the huge Storm King Imperial Stout.

We are excited to be able to feature Victory for our next rare beer tasting. We have a partial list of the beers we will be tasting that include;
White Monkey
Malt Beverage Aged In Wine Barrels
Since his birth in 1997, our beloved Golden Monkey has remained playfully delightful and profoundly satisfying. His soul continues to glow with the wisdom of ages and inspired our own stroke of genius. Restless from his continuous journey to joy, we felt that some quiet time in American oak barrels that once matured white wine would further soothe this ale’s silken soul. After his three-month retreat, Golden Monkey emerged refreshed and invigorated with new character and flavor nuances that only make him more profound, and possibly even more playful.

Dark Intrigue
Barrel-Aged Imperial Stout
Since its arrival in 1997, our Storm King Stout has enticed folks to “discover the dark intrigue” as its label suggests. While enjoying that great imperial stout, we have been intrigued by the myriad of flavors it exhibits, and encouraged to test the limits of perception and pleasure by adding to the rich experience of Storm King Stout. So here you have such a exploration, involving Storm King Stout aged in oak barrels that once matured Kentucky bourbon. Blended to perfection, this one is surely dark and intriguing!

Red Thunder
Barrel-Aged Baltic Porter
The luscious result of aging Baltic Thunder Porter in once-used wine barrels, Red Thunder exudes an inviting cocoa nose that segues into tempered pit-fruit sweetness on the tongue. Subtle and seductive, the burnished cocoa creaminess of our Baltic Thunder Porter has been accented with the tannic dryness that the wood imparts.

Tickets will be available as soon as a full lineup is confirmed.

Anderson Valley Beer Dinner. Wednesday 15th October. 7pm

For our October Beer Dinner we are featuring one of America's most unique breweries Anderson Valley. Brewing in the mountains of Boonville CA, Anderson Valley have strong ecological commitments and interesting colloquialisms at the heart of their brews.

We are excited to try their brews and have planned a brilliant menu to compliment all of the beers selected.

Blood Orange Gose paired with fish en papillote

Barney Flats Oatmeal Stout paired with smoked Beer-B-Q ribs

Leeber Paw Pils paired with southern fried chicken and mash and chicken gravy

Pinchy Jeek Barl (barrel aged pumpkin ale) paired with spiced pumpkin pie with bourbon whipped cream

Tickets are $30 (inc. tax, not tip)

Tickets available after the Ballast Point Beer Dinner (9/17)

Want to take home beer? A growler or growlette is the answer!
