Re: Left Field Brewery

I heard word today that Left Field is increasing their staff pay to $22/hr. Kudos! I won't even complain if there needs to be a price increase to support this. Agreed. Our craft beer industry constantly churns out deliciousness for us to enjoy and I feel like we rarely ask ourselves how the staff a...

Re: Ommegad! Clearout priced bottles

Ommegang Game of Thrones: For the Throne Ommegang Game of Thrones: My Watch Has Ended I've kind of ignored this series as many of Ommegang's beers, while good seem a bit same-y. Watch Has Ended definitely had a very typical 'house' character, a bit mineral and umami like veal stock. For The Throne ...

Re: Driftwood Fat Tug

Fresh on tap and out of the can (if you can find good dates) it is indeed a great beer, and likely one of the best West Coast IPAs made in Canada. If you think about it, Driftwood overall is a really well-rounded, consistent, and versatile brewery that excels in many styles. And I don't think I've e...

Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

Cornwall in Oakville. You should be able to check inventory on LCBO website. Managed to grab both beers and some Orval at the Bloor Kingsway and Weston stores. Thanks for the heads up, though! There were only a few Bible Belts and less than a dozen Oh Fudges left when I went, and I grabbed the last...

Re: Rainhard Brewing

Hop Cone Syndrome has made its return - first time since 2017, I think? - and it is drinking beautifully. Still available online and in the bottle shop. Well worth grabbing IMO.

Sounds like a good option for the Northern Buck, and I believe Milos sells this and the Root Beer at his pub, so I will give it a shot. Thanks for the heads up.

Re: Storm Stayed

how much should it cost? in your opinion of course I like Storm Stayed, I really do. They are probably the second best brewery in London. Their West Coast IPAs/DIPAs, lagers, and porters/stouts are usually excellent. And the taproom and patio are awesome places to have a beer. But at a price point ...
