The “Blockheads” (their word, not ours) have done it again as Jared and Aja Kichula take their infamous barbecue to Mission adding South Block to Comery and Hayden Blocks – this time with beer! Taking over the former Wurst space on 4th St. S.W., South Block brings its own lineup of local brews to the tap with some real delights. We loved the Big Lick, a lager which we’re told is tough to find in the local craft market because it takes twice the time to brew and offers nowhere to hide imperfections with its clean, minimalist approach to flavour. The barbecue is, of course, on point.
