LAST BEER AT THE PIG'S EAR

An unlikely host to a surprisingly diverse array of communities, the Pig's Ear Tavern was a staple in the small city of Peterborough for generations, and didn't change much over that time. The community is dealt a blow when the owners announce the sale of the bar to a developer who plans to demolish it. One of the few remaining examples of old-style tavern culture will disappear, and many are left feeling they will have nowhere to go. Over the two months leading up to the closure of the bar, we follow the staff, patrons, friends and family who call the Pig their second home, some of whom travel thousands of miles for one last beer at the Pig's Ear.
