Re: Ontario brewing cities

Reverence looks cool except their site links open all kinds of spammy pop ups. Not cool!

Abe Erb 3rd location is Ayr and 4th location is Guelph. No Cambridge.

Right, Foundry, down at the Gaslight district in Galt.

Cambridge is hopping! Good clean fun!

Re: Orlando

I was just here for a day yesterday and headed out this morning to Nashville. I'll add a spot that is worthy of a visit: Ravenous Pig. Brew pub/restaurant. Really good, to style brews. I had their Guavamente (Gose with Guava). Very nice and not over the top Gose but definitely to style. They had a c...

Re: Grain & Grit

I have to say I did NOT like what I got from G&G in cans. They're space is nice and the people are good but the beer... I had a bitter in the can and it was unsuitably under carbed. Taste was okay but didn't really do much for me overall. Also, slightly underfilled can. Their pineapple rye was t...

Re: Octoberfest/Marzan

Well, while we're not in the LCBO or TBS, Together We're Bitter in Kitchener has BOTH a Märzen and a wet hop IPA on tap at the brewery currently. Both pouring and tasting really nice. We've also got Craftoberfest coming up with around 25 breweries represented and around 11 Märzens being sent by the ...

Re: Fairweather Brewing

Dropped in last week for a visit. Great beer! My favourite was the dry hopped saison and came away with a couple of bottles of that. Everything they did was top notch if not all to my particular taste. HUGE brewery space out back that has so much growth potential. Looking forward to many future visi...

Re: Winnipeg?

Just got back yesterday and visited the following with comments: PEG: Great little place! I was working this past week with the symphony and this place is a VERY short walk from the stage door so that was a bonus. All the beers were solid and well done. I gravitated toward the ISA and the IPA when I...

Re: Winnipeg?

I'll be there in March for a week so have been doing a bit of research. In addition to the above mentioned places I did see this one:

Re: Together We're Bitter

Reviving this thread for a bit... A bit of news about TWB: I'll be joining them as their brewer starting tomorrow (July 4). I have left Grand River Brewing as their Head Brewer and am excited to be joining the team at TWB to make beer for, and with, them. Hoping to see them through some growth, dist...

Re: Cambridge, Ontario Tap Takeovers at 'The Bruce'

These are definitely worth it! I served at one repping GRB and attended the last one a couple of weeks ago for Charles MacLean. Great value, the brewers bring their best, Chef Aaron has GREAT food and for $35 for two full pints, sample flight and essentially all you can eat, it is definitely worth t...

Re: Prague and Plzen

Oh, I'm going to Plzen as well! Will only have a day or two there at the beginning of July but any tips will be welcome.

There is a vicarious request from one of my colleagues to have Pilsner Urquell on cask and report back to him how amazing it is. So... Thoughts?

To clarify: Home brew clubs will now have to be registered as a business with all the various numbers etc. in place in order to do a group buy. They have not cut off connections with the clubs, just the manner in which they do business with them. We're working through this in Cambridge/KW/Guelph and...

I don't know about the beers but I trust Matt7215's judgement. I know the head brewer there is Scott Pautler. A good guy who was here locally in Cambridge and part of the homebrew scene here via GRAB. Came to many meetings and brought tasty samples of his own brewing. Went through the Niagara Colleg...

"Or is he stupid enough to think that the people of Ontario don't?" This. The number of people I speak to or about who think that TBS is government owned and operated like the LCBO boggles my mind. When I tell them the facts they are always in shock. I think it's TBS's little "secret&...
