Re: Modern trends

Good theories,. But most breweries I imagine had lagers in the tanks before the shutdown happened. The cerveza at my brewery was pilot batched last year for LCBO submission for this summer. I couldn't tell you why so many breweries have them this year though.

Re: Barncat Artisan Ales, Cambridge

The other thing to note, is that a crowler is not like a regular can off a canning line. They do not have the same shelf life because there is a higher risk of oxygen getting in. Possibly why it's drinking differently is a bit of good oxidation

Re: Stone Brewing - Thoughts Nowadays?

I blame poor promotion and marketing. I enjoy stone still but I didn't hear of this event until 8pm last night.

Re: The Ontario Craft Beer Guide 2

I was under the impression their "rankings" were based on ratebeer ratings or whatever, which would make them actually kind of make sense. But I guess they're not? Lame. I trust the authors over ratebeer. Regardless of the "top brewery" list, which I think is silly but I know wh...

Re: Red Thread Brewing

They don't sound like a contract brewery if they are barrel ageing.
I guess their lager is done by someone, and their "lactose orange stout" :o is done by them on a smaller system?

Re: Any Ontario "nitro" stouts or esb's out there?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but any stout can be a nitro stout if it is poured through a nitro tap.

Re: Left Field Brewery

They used to have 750ml growlers. Wonder what happened to them. No reason to not do fills in my opinion, but that's a whole other convo. Unless you're setup well, growlers are annoying. Cleaning, sanitizing, filling. Sometimes a bottling line is just easier than taking returns. Plus any extra stock...
