The Winking Judge in Hamilton, Ontario is one of our favourite haunts. I first learned about this bar when I was researching for Haunted Hamilton (2012). Ever since I discovered their rotating 22 Ontario craft beer taps, I have haunted the place ever since.

This picture was taking during the Judge’s annual spring beer fest.

Here’s a short video with a few more images and a bit about “The Judge,” the bar’s resident ghostly bar fly . . .
