Grapefruit Sculpin

Weird.. why didnt we just get the regular sculpin Probably because the Grapefruit one tastes better. :P Both very good but I do prefer the Grapefruit one....the other versions that I've had (pineapple, aloha, etc) are not as good as either of these two. Having one, yes it's pretty good but I might ...

Re: What're you drinking right now?

Currently on a work trip in Montreal. Had the following so far... Nice! I don't think I've been to the Caribou. So much stuff. I believe I'm due for a trip there again... It's a bit of a drive and you need a place to stay a few days, but it's all worth it. We have one of the cultural gems in Montre...

Re: LCBO Autumn, Halloween and Ontario Craft Beers 2018 Release

sipping on a Fuller RIS. Drinks like a 6% robust porter. Lately I’m sensitive to crazy abv beers. Not a fan of the EIsbock these days, maybe it’s age... I've always found S&S Eisbock a gross beer; yes it's well-made and tastes OK (Aventinus far more so!) but to me it feels crappy drinking it, a...

Beyond the Pale Yummy! IPA

By gosh this is tasty. I hope the canned LCBO version of this maintains the fullness, cloudiness and the nice tropical fruit tones.

Re: Dominion City

I haven't experienced too many problems with the LCBO site... Well they can be depressingly Soviet-era in the indifferent way they list online information. They tend to carelessly omit or misspell things, and once entered in the system the errors are rarely fixed. The product languishes one assumes...

For such a massive buyer with so many resources the LCBO is really on autopilot with some seasonal releases (AKA the 'ahh fuck it' releases.)

What ales you right now?

Side Launch Wheat (AKA the original world-champion Denison's Weissbier) - fantastic as always, it's much more consistent compared to years ago when they were contract brewing it at Cool / Mill Street / etc. I'd say it's generally less lemony that it sometime could be, but theres a hint of citric tar...

Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

The Spencer pack is pretty good value. One Trappist Ale, Imperial Stout and Holiday Ale and a nice glass for about $16 IIRC. I believe Spencer are a Trappist monastery that brews beer? But yeah, I get that you are referring to trappist-style ales maybe similar to Chimay, St Bernardus, etc. Spencer ...
