Re: You know you're getting old when

Ah. I don't use Instagram. Thus the "old" part I guess.

You know you're getting old when

You think you are a reasonably attentive and sophisticated beer geek, yet you have never heard of the "boss pour", apparently a thing: https://vinepair.com/articles/boss-pour-beer-instagram/?utm_source=The+Drop+by+VinePair&utm_campaign=4849b856cc-MAR_29_2019&utm_medium=email&ut...

Lol. Who doesn't enjoy a nice, cold Busch Light from time to time?

Re: What're you drinking right now?

Yes, Surround Sound, then Life in the Clouds, are the best CA offerings for me too. Re-tried Ransack this weekend based on some posts here and nothing at all wrong with it, but I didn't quite love it as much as the ones above, or a few Bellwoods offerings, say. Unfortunately I have not experienced t...

Re: What're you drinking right now?

Whitewater Icebreaker Brut IPA. Quite a credible shot at a NE-style IPA from the boys in Forresters Falls. Very nice. The challenge for those of us not in the greater Cobden area, of course, will always be finding it fresh, but slightly miraculously I picked up a can "PK ON 04 MAR 19", whi...

Re: What're you drinking right now?

Pretty sure it's because they are brewed there. Same as Omnipollo.

Re: What're you drinking right now?

Weihenstephaner / Sierra Nevada Braupakt — This is just about at its BB date and has lost any notable hoppiness. However it still a delicious Hefe, on the creamy side with loads of peachy-banana going on. I picked this up at Brunswick Bierworks, they have about 5-6 Weihenstephaner beers in the frid...

Re: Coming Soon to the LCBO

On the less exciting side, an IPA from Creemore (ugh) and two new offerings from Side Launch (including their highly anticipated light lager :roll: ) that mean the death of the outstanding Mountain Lager (boo hoo). But a new German Pilsner from GLB offers hope - maybe it will become my go-to Ontario...

Re: Beer in Grocery Stores

And in Stittsville! Nothing against Stittsville, but how has this not happened in the middle of Toronto (or London or Mississauga or Hamilton or Ottawa)? All of our grocery store licences seem to have gone to chains who put forward a bland, broadly similar lineup. Maybe Farm Boy holds some promise?

Re: lcboapi.com and drinkvine.com

Okay then! It was just a suggestion. If you can find a plausible free alternative, please let us know. LCBO seems intent on making searching their inventory as difficult as possible. Personally, I found Drinkvine to be invaluable and would have paid a modest amount to keep it alive. Now we have anot...

Re: Side Launch - Mountain Lager discontinued - WTF?

I just don't get the same warm and fuzzies from Muddy York's Helles. I know others here like it though. I'll have to give it a re-try.

Bellwoods also makes a terrific Munich Helles (when available), but it is almost twice the price!

Re: Side Launch - Mountain Lager discontinued - WTF?

Hard to know, but it sounds like the MBA's have taken over and a re-branding campaign is underway: Northbound, Getaway, and other such nonsense replacing the core brands. Just slightly amazing to me that they would discontinue a beer that two of our top beer writers (Ben J., Jordan St. John) called ...

Re: lcboapi.com and drinkvine.com

Thanks. Wasn't aware of the other thread. My sentiments exactly. Precisely the reason we avoided the LCBO site entirely and used the lost and lamented drinkvine. Hopefully Cask Hunter will eventually fill the void. I would certainly pay a modest amount if he decides to go to a subscription-based mod...
