Re: Collective Arts

Totally agree on the Berliner/Gose/Sour trend. These styles used to be a once in a while treat, but there are way, way too many of them out there now. So frustrating when you go into a decent beer bar and they've got half a dozen of these and only one or two IPAs. Too many saisons/farmhouse ales too...

Re: Collective Arts

I'm pretty meh on No. 6 as well. I'd rather not see any fruit, sour, lactose etc. type beers in this series but hey, I'm not the brewer. I want beers that are solidly in the "trad" IPA category (i.e. hoppy). Loved no. 5. If I had my druthers I'd love to see them do a triple IPA for the win...

Re: CRAFT Beer Market - Toronto

Reviving an old thread. Craft has become our go to place downtown when we are taking in a show, especially if we have our 7-year old daughter with us. Food is always decent or better. Beer selection is extensive with more than enough, ahem, craft offerings. Service is consistently good. Kids menu is...

Re: Witchstock 2018

If you pay $120 to go to this event and you feel you got your money's worth, then you got your money's worth. I can't see myself feeling that way though. Most I can drink in 3 hours is 6 pints - maybe. That's $20 a pint. Yes,l there's great/rare beer but I can pop over to Lewiston and get 15-20 cans...

Re: LCBO Online Exclusives

I'm sure Keep6 brought in as much as they could, but 720 bottles is almost cruelly low. If everyone bought, say two bottles of each one, then only 120 people would be able to place an order. Was there a max number of bottles one could order?

Re: Buffalo NY - what to see and explore?

That Tops in Lewiston also has a crowler station. Just underlines how lame the rollout of beer to Ontario grocery stores really is.

Re: Second Wedge Brewing Co.

Visited yesterday. Very nice space, great patio. Only had time to try the IPA (3 Rocks). Quite nice - got a bottle to go. They have a farmers market going every Sunday this summer as well.

Re: Montreal

You can't go wrong with Dieu du Ciel. Love that place.

Haven't been in a couple of years, but these are personal faves:

Station Ho.st
Brouhaha (Rosemont)
Cheval Blanc
McAuslan - not so much for the beer but the location on the Lachine Canal is really nice on a warm day

Re: Buffalo NY - what to see and explore?

If you make it over to Lewiston, Brewed & Bottled is well curated and very convivial. The Tops there has pretty decent selection for a grocery store with a walk-in fridge and crowler station.

Visited Resurgence brewery in Buffalo over the weekend. Very nice space, great beer.

Re: Brunswick Bierworks

Had a chance to check the tap room out this weekend. They are only open Saturdays from 11-5. 20 taps, the most interesting being the collabs with Mikkeller and La Trappe. They also had the Omnipollo IPA and Prodromus on tap (the Prodromus was excellent, much better than the canned version). Also a c...
