Re: MAN OVERBOARD SERIES - SESSION IPA

Wow just when you think Michael is dedicated to the sublime and traditional, look out! Sorry about the image size folks. I took it with my phone and felt too lazy to resize it. No problem. In my own lazy experience if you post it privately to your own FB page it will be auto-resized, then you can g...

Re: Drinking old - not aged - beer

Any advice on sites I could purchase old beer? I'd love to give something that ages well over long periods a shot.

Courage RIS, JW Lee's Harvest, Thomas Hardy, and I really don't know what else. Samichlaus? Fuller's Vintage Ale?

It's encouraging that St. Louis moved well enough they bothered to bring it back so soon. That might encourage them to try other beers of the style in the future. Gregorius should get some love. That's not a super easy beer to come by and it's got the trappist designation, which is neat. If Green D...

I finished the whole can!

My only regret is that, since I was buying from an Agency Store, I couldn't get a can of Faxe Strong to complete the trifecta.

I was pretty close to picking up a bottle of this, but the last few reviews have made me think otherwise. Me too. I feel dispirited. Well, I hope I didn't lead anyone astray in terms of buying something they didn't really like. I DO want to be trusted on this site. I did make a great Toddy the othe...

aren't these all at the lcbo right now? I also miss Sam Adams Latitude 48 Aventinus Weizen-Eisbock. Belhaven Scottish Stout I might have been wrong on the Lat 48. Maybe I just don't see it in Collingwood. Belhaven Best Bitter is general list, but not the Scottish Stout. Or at least I never see it. ...

Alexander Keith's Saphir Hop. This new release in the series is very good, the hop flavour is prominent and pleasant. The beer, as all those in the series IMO, could be a bit maltier, but it drinks very nicely. I believe Saphir is a new world hop grown in Germany and it seems to show characteristic...

Prima pils and dfh 60min +1 for the Prima Pils. I always buy it when travelling now, after having discovered it when it was at the LCBO. Make that a +2. I loved that beer. I also miss Christoffel Blonde and Christoffel Nobel. Sam Adams Latitude 48 as well. Aventinus Weizen-Eisbock. Weltenberger Klo...

^How the hell did it win the Golden taps?---seriously, I'm not a hater but it's such an average product.... Social media. Most breweries don't have someone hammering golden taps into their 1000+ followers. That's why GLB and Beau are locking down so many awards. I mean what cask conditioned ale doe...
