Beer, music, smoked meats, and an auction for free beer for a year – sound like fun? It’s the Leaside Smokedown at Amsterdam Brewery on Escandar Dr. on Thursday, May 28. It’s a fund-raiser for Lake Scugog camp, designed to help children affected by poverty and other barriers. Grilltime owner Andy Elder will be using a smoker trailer owned by Councillor Jon Burnside. The auction for the free beer by Amsterdam includes one day as a brewmaster. $75 per person.
