Beard of Zeus is still available at the brewery. Just picked up a few myself.

Re: Godspeed Brewery

My last Taru Ichi can went off like a rocket - lost about half of it. The Kizuna was alright - maybe a bit too citrus forward (I think Bim and Shaun came up with the recipe ages ago and that was Shaun's extent of it being brewed). Better to drink at room temperature. I found the Kizuna almost astri...

Re: Collective Arts

I picked up the Origins of Darkness mix pack at the new Toronto store last night. I tried the Almond Milk/Coffee variant and it was ... nothing special. Not a good balance as the coffee steamrolled over the other flavours. The Untappd reviews so far seem to reflect my experience. I cannot find this...

Re: Godspeed

I fear all my Taru Ichi cans are infected...the last one I opened was a gusher and extremely tart, I had to pour it. The rest of my cans are taut. Pushing my thumb on the can has absolutely no give to it compared to cans I've aged 1+ years which clearly have less pressure built up inside. Oh no! GS...

Re: Amsterdam Brewery

Anyone know what's in Winter Flight Pack this year? https://www.lcbo.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/en/lcbo/taster-pack-16118296124-1/amsterdam-winter-flight-pack-17504#.X3Yfk2hKiUl There is now a photo with the listing. Thank you. It’s not Starke pilsner and Tempest, but I’ll pick up one for sure.

Re: Abbaye de Godspeed

Had the Godspeed "Nana" recently, brewed with Japanese shichimi spices and was really impressed. Didn't know what to expect, and it turned out to be one of my favourite beers of this summer. It's pretty intense, all these woody spices. A second can awaits me. The chili peppers are certain...

Burlington brewery hasn’t made the retail stuff for years due to capacity. They had that joint brewery with Collective for years and when that fell through they ended up at Wellington.

Final Edit: Well, I took a look today and the LCBO website has changed their database so the scraper is broken. Unfortunately due to family obligations I won't have time to fix it.

Should be up now. Looks like the online inventory was down for a few days and I didn't notice. Please don't hesitate to let me know when this happens again.

Noticed Caskhunter.com hasn't updated new beers on the new beers page since June 30. Is this feature kaput?

Re: Godspeed Brewery

I disliked Baby Shizumu. I just don't think West Coast versions of session IPAs work... and I'm a WC IPA fan.

Světlý Ležák 12º blew me away though! Possibly the best lager in Ontario. And Taru Ichi was beautiful.

Re: Cigar City Marshal Zhukov Russian Imperial Stout

+1 (not worth $20, even for 650Ml) I was wondering at the high price, but I like it. Heavily built. The flavors are dense and carry on for a loooong time... it's a good hybrid of UK traditional and USA style RIS, with some nice leathery tones setting off the ample richness. There are many good RIS ...
