Stirling O. Bertrum (1876 - 1937)
A Goose so thirsty we named our place after him. Stirling, was a remarkable Canadian Goose who lived on the banks of the Ganaraska River in Port Hope, Ontario. Remembered for his dry wit, good fortune and love of watering holes. Stirling, lived a life of comfort, while maintaining a sense of adventure and willingness to risk. It was an uncany ability to win 'games of chance' that brought Stirling his wealth, though it was his generousity that gave him prestige.
So Raise a Toast to the Goose who Cheers'd the Most!
The Thirsty Goose is a Pub. It was created to be a comfortable gathering place for the people of Port Hope and its visitors. The atmosphere is warm, comfortable and friendly.
The menu has homemade classic pub food along with some inspired and innovated dishes. The offerings are pretty simple, yet aimed to please a varied crowd.
The old oak bar, proudly has 24 DRAFT BEER taps, offering a variety of fresh rotating beer styles from local brewers to premium imports brands. Wine, Cocktails and a comprehensive offering of Whiskeys are also available.
The space was designed to preserve the asthetics of the 1863 Heritage Building while also showcasing some of the local historical photographs.
