Coronaeus wrote:Can anybody tell me what the canning dates are on the current Dortmunder, Svetly, Ikinuki and Ibushi in the shop?.

Both @ peak deliciousness.

Also the NONBE Oktoberfest Märzen is just out 21.09.20 - and the KIZUNA is soon to follow.

Re: What're you drinking right now?

Saulter Street Riverside Copper Pilsner from brewery store, the can is souring just a few weeks after purchase so I dumped it out. The Sorachi hop Lager they have on tap right now is really nice though. This new Duvel Tripel Hop Cashmere Belgian IPA (9.5%) is very flavourful showing nice underlying ...

It's back as a single now.

I scored some perfect pint glasses and one of them is Urbock.

Now I have to buy some creemore.

Re: Spending/Drinking More or Less on Beer during Pandemic?

I stopped in at Bar Volo who certainly were worth coming by for some delicious Dageraad beers from BC on their nice tap list.

Quaint alleyway table seating at this time, wasn't at all crowded for an early dinner. Swing by and say hi to Ralph & the crew.

des Roques Vacqueyras

Chateau des Roques Vacqueyras 2013

Really nice medium-weight southern Rhône - Cherry and a little smooth brandy-soaked black plum, violets and blueberry/blackberry. Really great refined dry palate. This bottle is 2013 which is probably why it was a nice reduced price just over $17.

La Ferme du Mont Première Côte CDR 2018

La Ferme du Mont Première Côte Côtes du Rhône 2018 This is a bafflingly fresh and simple wine for $21, but some claim that's a certain modern Rhône style many people like. La Ferme du Mont is well-regarded for their big Crus, and this wine, their simpler Premiére Côte is amazingly fruit forward (ca...

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...

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...

What. me?

Curious how people feel their drinking habits have changed in recent months? Much more discreet enjoyment in parks, by shorelines etc. I've new at that, but the city probably doesn't care so long as one is being socially considerate. Also restrooms are everywhere if you know where trees are... so f...

Re: What're you Sipping mate?

I left Leslieville a little over a year ago. I liked Saulter Street a lot; the staff, the vibe, the clientelle. It was a lot of fun to bring my toddler and wife in and just sit around for a bit and sip some beers with locals. It's about as unpretentious a spot as you can find. That said, the beer w...

Re: Grenache/Syrah/Carignan

M. Chapoutier Les Vignes de Bila-Haut Côtes de Roussillon 2014 A very fine $15.95 wine, so a tad easier on the wallet than the (also) consistently excellent & more ageable Occultum Lapidem also available from Bila-Haut. Round and full and structured with nice dark fruit, dark florals and spice....

Inner - inner city - inner city pressure...

... (was) talking with another Bar Toweler recently that sometimes you just really want, for lack of a better word, a "regular" beer. Had a Saulter Street It's About Bloody Time English Ale . Fits the bill nicely, a very nice beer. If you read the back of the can, this is exactly what the...
