The father, son team will bring five pubs to North Carolina—the first is scheduled to open in Raleigh in winter 2008.

About Firkin:

Stanley Adelson and Ian Fisher opened their first pub, Fox and Firkin, in Toronto in May 1987. It was the idea of a traditional English neighborhood pub – where people could enjoy good drink and food in good company – that quickly built a stable of regulars. Selections range from a variety of beverages and delicious meals including: traditional English pub fare like fish and chips, burgers, sandwiches, as well as a selection of entrée dishes such as Bangers and Mash, Shepherd's pie, salads and—of course—a wide assortment of draft beers on tap and in the bottle.
