Re: Grand River Brewing

Remember when Mill St. Tankhouse was actually pretty decent?

Re: Coming Soon to the LCBO

Anyone seen the new Collective Arts IPA (No. 13) in any GTA LCBOs?

Re: Collective Arts

Ultrasoft is excellent. Tropical Distancing does what it says on the can. Veers into alcopop territory IMO. I bought four and will save the three I have left for warm days.

Re: Rorschach Brewing

Rorschach is worth trying. I'm not into sours or fruited beers but I like their IPAs. Can vouch for the current batch of Truth Serum, Master Status and Telekinesis. Their "crowlers" are actually 1 litre plastic medicine bottles since they don't have a canning station and they are currently...

Also, several breweries have shifted to Canpar. So far these have shipped blazing fast, and no issues upon delivery.


Quick Google search shows Spearhead, Grain & Grit and Cowbell are using Canpar. Anyone else? I wish Dominion and Sawdust would switch over to Canpar.

Surprised you guys like this so much. I had it at The Jim during the Founders tap takeover last Friday. Found it sickly sweet. Much prefer KBS or Kentucky Bastard.


Loved the CBS and the Better Half at the Jim. The free glasses were a nice touch.

Yeah, I like three of the four beers. Haven't tried the pils yet.

Re: Black Lab Brewery opening in East Toronto this fall

Nice space, lots of dogs. Four beers on tap (a sour, an IPA, an APA and a black lager). Liked the IPA the best, but not enough to buy a bottle to go. Early days for this brewery, so will visit again at some point to see how they are doing.

Re: Black Lab Brewery opening in East Toronto this fall

Not to dampen any enthusiasm, but I know one of the owners and asked about the Belgian focus referenced in the BlogTo article. Apparently, they just mentioned in passing that Belgian styles were among the owners' and brewer's favourites and BlogTo sort of ran with that. No real Belgian influence fo...

Re: Witchstock 2018

Ended up going despite feeling a bit under the weather (and not being able to find a buyer for the ticket). Glad I went as this was the best beer event I've been to in some time. I was at session 2. Didn't find the opening Ontario "gauntlet" that bad. Although Ontario brewers really seem h...

Black Lab Brewery opening in East Toronto this fall

By Thanksgiving weekend they say. If I'm reading things right the focus will be Belgian styles.
