Create memorable experiences this season at The Common

Posted on Dec 21, 2018 by The Forks

Sometimes we all get fixated on finding the perfect gifts for our loved ones when really, spending time together truly is — as cliche as it sounds — the best present you can offer. 


The Forks has been a meeting place for more than 6,000 years and we love to see that tradition continue now in The Common, especially during the holiday season. Trust us, our halls are decked and we can’t wait for you to come and experience it!

If you didn’t know, The Common is the craft beer and wine bar located on the main floor of The Forks Market. You want wine? They have more than 20 different options. Craft beer more your thing? More than 20 choices for that as well. And both the beer and wine lists are changed four times a year, so there’s always something new to try.

One of our favourite things to do, especially when a new beverage list has been crafted by sommelier Véronique Rivest, is choose a custom flight, which is a smaller-than-usual pour of four beers or three wines that allows you to sample several different libations rather than commit to a full pint or glass of one thing. And flights are the perfect thing to share with a friend or two, which is just an added bonus in our opinion!

On that note, our beer and wine lists will be changing once again come January, and Veronique Rivest will be in town for UnCommon Pours V04 Winter Beer + Wine List Launch. If you or someone you know is passionate about tasting notes, or is simply interested in learning more about beer and wine from the best in the biz, the cost of this experience is only the cost of a flight of beer or wine: $14.

We know your December schedule is already packed with parties, get-togethers and celebrations, so there may not be time to plan another meet-up before the holiday season comes to a close, but why not encourage one in the new year by gifting a loved one a Forks Market gift card? It can be redeemed anywhere in the market, including The Common, so it’s the perfect stocking stuffer for someone you hope to connect, or reconnect, with in 2019!
