I had heard from Vintages that they would be releasing a Van Winkle (don't think Pappy) in the spring. It will be the 23 year old Pappy that is coming Have any idea of the price point? Only time I seen it on the shelf was 199$ in Syracuse. Went for the 99$ 20-year old in stead at the time after tas...

My girlfriend and I are heading back to Burlington again this weekend, we enjoyed it so much last long weekend. Some suggestions: Ben and Jerry's is worth a tour, and the Alchemist is just down the street, so you might as well stop in and pick up some Heady Topper anyway. :) Stowe is a very nice lit...

If you can get out to Aylmer, L'Autre Oeil (http://www.lautreoeil.com/) has by far the best selection in the area. Lots from Quebec and Belgium (including a pretty good stock of Cantillon usually). Highly, highly recommended. (Food selection is a little light, but I enjoy what they have.) Aside from...

with a beer like this that is only in its 3rd vintage no one can say that it will improve for 7 - 10 years because it hasnt even been around for that long has anyone even done the mini 3 year vertical to find out if this beer is even improving? I have, and while I'm not sure I have the ability to s...

Well, it doesn't look like I can make it after all. Have fun everyone, and please keep this thread updated if you plan to do it again sometime. I'd love to meet everyone and pick the brains of some other beer nuts.

Sounds good, I think I will make it. So how do we find each other once we're in the Loon? (Assuming everybody else doesn't already know each other)

Oh, and any suggestions of where to park? I don't get down that way very often.

I'm definitely up for it, and Thursdays or Fridays are usually pretty good. Nov 10 definitely works for me, if that's the date that is decided.

Re: ST 2XIPA Freshness

We can't comment on individual taste perceptions, but we can tell you with certainty that the ST 2XIPA is fresh . Thanks for the clarification R+R, and I hope I didn't offend with my question. It just seemed to have far less flavour than when I last had it, which is what prompted my query. As I say...

Any chance we got some old stock of this? This is far more subdued than the beer I enjoyed so much in Syracuse in May. (Granted, that was on tap, but still...) I get a little bitterness, a tiny bit of grapefruit, and that's it. Really disappointed, and a little sorry I bought two six packs. I love S...

There was a couple events during Toronto Beer Week where the Gose was poured, it was really good. Would like to see it return It was also available at their Oktoberfest party, as well as in growlers at the brewery around that time. I've never had the style before, so I don't really know what it is ...

Ah, thanks. I did a quick Google search, but I couldn't find anything. Guess I should have checked the online version of the same source. From reading that, I think the guy just read that story out on the radio verbatim.

Mill St. Looking to Open Brewpub in Ottawa

I heard on CBC Radio Ottawa this morning that Mill St. has submitted plans to City Hall to turn the site of the old Mill restaurant into a small brewpub (they mentioned 40 kegs a week). Sounds like it's just in the planning and permits stage, but that seems like a great place for a brewpub if it hap...

I haven't had anything else produced by a Canadian brewery either that rivals Unibroue in Belgian style ales. Not a big loss though as Allagash and Ommegang still do the trick, and the LCBO still comes through with good authentic Belgians. Molson could produce the greatest beer ever made and I stil...
