Re: Winnipeg?

So to recap, Grove, King's Head, Common, Smith, and Yellow Dog are worthy bars/restos for a thirsty beer nerd? Staying at the Fairmont Winnipeg until Sunday and seeking any advice/recos that might be helpful. Will probably hit the bars mentioned above unless advised otherwise, and I'm also eyeing L...

Re: Muddy York Brewing

I was intrigued by the Barrel-Aged Plank Road Baltic Porter and was planning to pick up a few until I noticed the price. $10 for 355ml ?! Good grief, I'll pass. they didn't use bourbon barrels, which are supercheap. they also didn't blend it, so you're getting "cask strength" beer. it's a...

Re: Kriek des Jacobins, Duchesse de B

personal preference, right? but make sure you're not confusing the Jacobins rouge with Jacobins kriek. i know that the Kriek Max is a joke beer in belgium. i won't go into their complete thoughts behind these beer because it's pretty offensive, but the Kriek is really not a great beer and i'd be su...

Re: LCBO Spring 2018 Craft Beer Release

Whoa, pretty good. Mostly new stuff here. Excited for Rodenbach Caractère Rouge, and it's going to sell for less than Vintage? Nice price on Timmerman's too. that and the Jacobins Kriek are too sweet. I'm convinced that Rodenbach's changed their recipes up over the last 2 years. Alexander and CR ar...

Re: Beer Cellars

Unibroue's website says it should be fine within 3-5 years... Definitely gotta take those recommendations with a grain of salt. I held on to a number of Unibroue 17 bottles, based on the brewer's suggestion, and they just got worse and worse with age (bitter woody astringency). It's a lovely beer f...

At Left Field Bang Bang (Dry Hopped Sour) Greenwood (IPA) Laser Show (IIPA) Sweet Jesus (Mocha Marshmellow Stout) Wrigley (Oat Pale Ale) At Godspeed Biere de Soif (Lager collab w/ Brasserie de la Senne) Ochame (Green Tea IP...

Re: Muddy York Brewing

Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

I had a nearly four-year-old Quelque Chose in 2010, it was a gorgeous beast. The bottle almost opened itself, so much pressure and little carbonation but the blooming cherry flavours and tartness were wonderful. I assume that retired Unibroue beer is not profitable. no...it has to do with the cherr...

Re: Okay...someone explain 11.9 abv to me...

Last year's Kentucky Bastard was 14.5% and countless other examples. There is some regulatory hoop to jump through and possibly tax implications. That's a good point. Extra tax could be why they were losing money on it if I recall correctly from another thread. from what i understand.... 12% is the...

Re: Coming Soon to the LCBO

This one, I think: http://www.greatlakesbeer.com/beer/barrel-aged-belgian-style-quad/ Although I didn't look too closely, maybe it was the stout. If it was, I'm annoyed because I would have got a couple. GLB released a number of beer with the exact same anniversary label. one was a black IPA, one w...

Re: Ontario brewed Tripels...

I've long lamented the lack of consistently available, good quality Ontario-brewed tripels as it is one of my favourite styles and definitely under-represented. Very few brewers have taken a cut at brewing a tripel, and those that do often feel compelled to put a twist on the style (e.g., barrel-ag...
