This place used to be a laundromat…but now it’s a funky craft beer joint!

So, I was cruising the streets of Moncton in the Camaro, looking for a place that could get gravy stains out of a tie-dye t-shirt, when I came across this laundromat on St. George Street. I figured it was my lucky day, but then I walked inside to find that there aren’t any washing machines here, just a buncha ice cold beer. This is the Laundromat Espresso Bar, bro!

This cozy neighbourhood joint kept some of the original signage, but they also added artwork of their own, along with a bar counter, an espresso machine, a couple tables and a beer fridge. And because I didn’t eat enough cheese already, I went ahead and grabbed some salty cheese curds, along with my new favourite pirate brew:

This was kinda like eating Cheesestrings back in the day, cept they’re a bit more bitter and you can’t really pull ‘em apart. Also, my mom never backed Pilsner in my lunchbox; I used to chug it with Terry and Deaner while rockin’ out to Dio behind the Moontower at recess. Good times!

Now, you probably can’t get Old Style Pilsner in Moncton, but on the other hand, they did have about 99 bottles of Unibroue beers in the fridge:
