Both Ann, myself
and my brother Joe worked at the (Brampton) Keg Restaurant for many years
during the 1980's and have many great memories and friends from that time.

the upstairs bar.
The Keg restaurant
was located near the Four Corners of Brampton (Main St. and Queen St.).
This was the old location for the restaurant which has since moved up to
Main St and Bovaird St (70 Gillingham Dr: 905-456-3733).
I came to the
Keg Brampton from the Dixie/Dundas Mississauga Keg and I came to love the
people and the atmosphere of the place - in fact that is where I met and
married my wife Ann.
was located in a very old building with quite a history and many people
swear it was haunted. I know I hated to be alone at night in the building.
The building had a small alley where we kept the garbage bin and across
from the main entrance was the public parking lot which is now a large
building under construction.
What made the
Keg great was the people that worked there and I miss seeing many of them
now and am grateful for some that keep in contact although we rarely meet.
We partied most of the time we worked and long into the night afterwards.
And I must admit I partied too hard many times and did to many foolish
things. We also had some great customers who also made it a pleasure to
Ian and Heather
ran the place and there were so many superstars that you got to meet like
all the ue's, John and Nancy, Kevin, Marie, Ingrid, Linda, Rick, Lorrie,
Laura, Cindy, Scotty and all the great people in prep, cooking, cocktail,
bartending and the list goes on and on....
There were a few
marriages besides ours and some staff were very popular with quite a few
people, such as Brian, and some went on to manage other Keg's - including
Geoff and Jon.
If you have any
memories or pictures that you want to share of the Brampton Keg please
send them to me and I will post them on my website.
You can find more
pictures of the Keg at my brother's website.
