"Zink Empire" expanding to Canton with Canton Beer Exchange

Posting from laptop at library because Verizon screwed up my phone and internet, and had to go to SIX libraries to find one open, and I have a funeral to attend in a half-hour, so I'm just gonna copy/paste from Midnight Sun's Erik Maza:

Canton's getting another beer bar and restaurant this fall. Called Canton Beer Exchange, it will feature a novel concept where draft beer prices change according to consumption.

Consulting for the bar, which takes over at 2522 Fait Ave. from Lager's Pub, is a familiar face: Jason Zink. 

Until now, Zink had mostly worked out of Federal Hill. He owns No Idea Tavern and until June, Don't Know Tavern, which he sold to pay off legal bills stemming from a labor lawsuit brought on by former employees.

The bar is planning on installing between 24 and 40 draftlines, with a focus on Mid-Atlantic beers, especially Maryland beers. Zink promises there will be Stillwater Ales and Oliver Breweries in addition to the more well-known Flying Dog and Heavy Seas. The bar will also carry cask-conditioned ales.
The Exchange, which Zink has already dubbed a hashtagable 'CBX,' will also have a dinner menu that he describes as "family-friendly."

All of that is still a long way off. Though the new bar got its liquor license last week, it will need a full face-lift and construction is still two months off.
