Re: Rorschach Brewing Company

I'd have to agree with the above posts as well... everything brewed well and to-style, but nothing particularly amazing. They seem to be on the right track, however, and hopefully will continue to improve with new offerings. The space is interesting... long and narrow first floor and the rather out...

Re: Folly Brewpub

Hey all, Just wanted to let you folks know that our first anniversary party is coming up tomorrow night, Wednesday the 12th of October. Should be a bit of fun. We've got free snacks from four to seven or so plus we're getting twelve taps up and running for the night. Here's the taplist: Flemish Cap,...

Re: Henderson Brewing Co

I dropped on Saturday for the launch party. Really nice space and vibe. Looks to be a shiny 15 hL with 30 hL tanks... though I might be down by a few hL on those estimates. I don't expect this to be a bar towel darling of a brewery considering their more conservative choices in recipes, but the beer...

Re: Folly Brewpub

Drinking Invented #1 right now. Very nice, lighter funk notes really add something to this beer without blowing away the palate or being astringent. This would be on my shortlist as in intro to saisons/funk. Very nice! Thanks! We're aging version two on some fresh apricots right now (not a lot but ...

Re: Folly Brewpub

The invented tradition is nice. Hard to describe, other than to say it's complex and still has an aggressively Bretty flavor. I imagine it will be even better if it mellows with some aging. Saudade is nice too. Juicy, complex and refreshing. I think those hops add some interesting flavor. My only c...

Though I cannot speak for the c...

Re: Folly Brewpub

it was awesome to meet Chris and Christina today, great people and amazing beer! The Praxis is my new fav Ontario saison Thanks! We've been brewing that one for a while and are pretty happy with it. Just about to switch over the yeast from a White Labs 565 strain we got a while ago to a fresh pitch...

Re: Folly Brewpub

what is price on the BA farmhouse? was it aged in red wine barrel? Price will be $8. Limit of four. It was both fermented and aged in a red wine barrel (a Southbrook red wine blend, not single varietal). Spent about two months in the barrel for both primary fermentation and aging. More like a foede...

Re: Blue Jays Home Opener?

Not going to the game tonight but leaning towards going to Folly to catch the game. Folly will have the game on a big projector screen with the sound (after a brief internal debate) on. Tap lineup: https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CfIxMkOWsAA0LPJ.jpg:small Rhizome might be swapped out for a version with...

Re: Batch

Interesting. You presumably wouldn't serve spoiled eggs or milk to a customer, why beer? Was just having some wonderfully fresh & bretty stuff at Folly brew pub; I guess it helps if your beer is made 40 feet away & you answer for the entire quality control! Well, that's kinda the point, isn...

Re: Batch

Dropped by Batch yesterday evening. Vibe was, obviously, a downtown TV mega pub. Didn't really eat. So that's that. Beer was all well made and tasty. Somewhat reminded me of my first impressions of Exchange. American brewpub staple beers all well made. Solid Pale ale, cream ale, Irish Red, Porter (t...

Re: drinkvine Lists

Last year our main volunteer got a job as a brewer and his spare time tapered off as well. All of this to say that keeping drinkvine updated has been more difficult than we anticipated! Drinkvine is a pet project of someone on here. It's not commercial in any sense. Life gets in the way. I wish I u...
