A corner bar serving local craft beer made its debut at Thursday night’s OHL game between the Peterborough Petes and Erie Otters.

When the city signed a contract late last year to renew the sale of Molson and Coors beer at the Memorial Centre, city council agreed to also allow sales from two local craft breweries, Smithavens Brewery and Publican House.
