Remembering Stan Groves Sr.

The Golden Lion Pub in Lennoxville was the first Brew-Pub to open its doors in Quebec, and it helped pave the way for the dozens and dozens more which have since set up shop across this province. But the establishment wouldn't be the community gathering spot it is today without the vision of Stanley Groves and his commitment to a cold pint. He was one of the pub's founders. Stanley Groves Senior passed away last week, but his legend certainly lives on. His son, Stan Groves Junior is part owner, as well as the brewmaster at the Golden Lion Pub. Listen here.
