It Was A Knockout Weekend

posted on October 10th 2018 in Events with 0 Comments

Yes, this past weekend was a time for most to celebrate Thanksgiving with their families, but there was also something else pretty exciting going on this weekend. There was also a UFC fight which we know always seems to brings people together! Conor McGregor who seems to be a crowd favourite did not come out with a victory this time, but the G of G Inc team however knocked it out of the park!

Our team could be found at various venues across the GTA including Shoeless Joe’s in both Hamilton and Burlington, as well as their location on King St in Toronto. Our Toronto venue was featuring specials and exciting activities for both the UFC game as well as the Toronto Maple Leaf’s game that was coming to an end just as our team arrived on site. This crew was representing Budweiser and Bud Light. They roamed the restaurant during the first portion of the shift, giving out samples and chatting to guests at the bar about their products, providing some key messaging. During the later half of the shift, they ran a satellite bar at which they were selling Budweiser and Bud Light to guests at the bar.

Our Hamilton and Burlington teams were representing a bit of a stronger drink, Jameson Caskmates. The brand ambassadors were roaming the bars, giving out samples of the Irish whiskey. This is a new whiskey from Jameson, that is triple distilled and is the finished in stout seasoned barrels. They were serving samples either neat or on the rocks, however the guests preferred it. This product is for craft beer drinkers, or those who love premium/craft whiskeys. If this sounds like you, we suggest you try out one of these drinks next time you are out.

Black gold – mix 40 mL Jameson Caskmates, 20mL Kahlua, with a dash of Angostura bitters in a rocks glass over ice and stir gently. Garnish with an orange peel.

Balsa wood – Add 50mL Jameson Caskmates, 15 mL Balsamic syrup, and 2 dashes of orange bitters and chocolate bitters in a mixing glass over ice and stir to chill, then strain into a rocks glass over ice.
