Re: Coming Soon to the LCBO

I would prefer to pay $19.50 for 3 250 ml bottles than a single 750ml I know some beers can be re-sealed and consumed over a couple of days. Problem is, I have yet to find one that tastes as good a day or 2 after opening. With smaller bottles I can consume one and save the others for another day an...

Re: Coming Soon to the LCBO

Sierra Nevada Trip in the Woods barrel aged Maple Scotch Ale 750ml 9.8%abv $19.45 Nineteen bucks, though :o ... think I'll pass on this one Oh it's worth every cent. If it were in 3 x 250 ml bottles would each be worth $6-7, definitely. The aromas and the substantial body of this beer make it worth...

Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

Wow...drinking a Yummy from Beyond The Pale. Not cheap at $4.00 a can, but a good Jutsu clone. There are going to be too many of these in my fridge soon. Agree on all points. I really dig this beer, and its a good alternative to Jutsu at (I think) $1.50 less for the same amount. This brew is fantas...

Re: Hill Farmstead Arthur

Great post Jeff.

The brews farthest from our reach aren't always better than those we can track down with relative ease.

I love this forum for pointing out great local-available stuff.

Re: What're you drinking right now?

Cuvée Sœur’ise from Brouwerij De Leite. Exceptional. that beer is so good :wink: Ditto. I don't even blink at the 5 bucks a bottle. Considerably better than the Kriek des Jacobins that was here earlier this year. I snagged another one of these, and it's good. Has some depth for a 'commercial' beer....

Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

The new GLB Toronto Island Strawberry and Mango Norwegian Farmhouse Ale is soooooooooooooo good. Totally worth $10 for the 650ml bottle imo. I may have to load up. Having one now! Definite presence of berry / tropical fruit blended into the dry and lightly earthy aspects. Aromas are more tangy and ...

Re: Collective Arts

I do see how everything is now a sour / hopped sour / hopped fruited sour / Imperial dry hopped fruited wine barrel sour, etc. but I actually don't mind a lot of it. There are some great brews coming out of this movement. And despite these reinventions at least the Vermont IPA style is still pretty ...

Re: Witchstock 2018

A big pet peeve of mine are those ridiculous miniature Nonic "pint" glasses that are really only 14 ounces or so. Do they think I am an idiot and am going to be fooled somehow? Very insulting to our intelligence. I was quite disappointed when otherwise top flight beer bars adopted these. ...

Scully Forever

Goose Island Gillian - Feb. 2016 bottling, to continue the Strawberry theme. Clearly this ($35, yikes!) cellar champ is evolving nicely, maybe now even more on the side of balsamic tartness than residual fruit. But the tart field berry / honey / white pepper & wine barrel depth is still there. ...

A fleeting brew

Unibroue Éphémère Fraise & Rhubarbe / Strawberry & Rhubarb - bottle from LCBO pours good ripe field berry aromas, slightly hazy amber coat tinged with pink and tall white head. Flavor leans to sweet with the wheaty/spicy underpinnings of an essentially Belgian-style blonde ale. The rhubarb n...

Re: LCBO Online Exclusives

$111 sure is a lot for 710 ml of delicious beer. Worth it? I argue no, but they sell out every year so I'm sure lots of people argue yes. Instead of buying a bottle, I went over to Folly and ordered an ounce for I can't remember how much they wanted, but it was less than $20 bucks. That ounce was p...

No, really what are you drinking now?

Sam Adams Fresh As Helles
Definitely not my favorite SA brew - why sneak in the orange peel citrus - but it's drinkable.

Also killed my last Deschutes Fresh Squeezed IPA, very nice malty IPA style you don't see that much now.

Re: Party on Your Peachy Bus

Haand Buukk I remember Aass Bock was also a bold-tasting Dunker Bock. Similarly Scandinavian. It's a great full-tating ale, just having one in a minute. Bready, dark-dry fruit, as good as any German iteration. Stone City Ales Party Bus IPA - a superior quaff with major hop character, not just citru...

Burmester 10 year Tawny Port, ctd.

Burmester 10-Year-Old Tawny Port - as a classic Port it is fairly sweet and dark-fruity (prune fig raisin) - plus some spicy & woody, a bit of beautiful savory-umami and nutty notes, butterscotch biscuit, subtle acid profile hints at tart tropical fruit. Despite the big sweet palate it's very '...

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

Christmas Pudding Porter from Scotch Irish. Must've been totally unfiltered, or if it had been done, it was done so through a pudding itself. Haha. 'Pudding filtered' or not I do wish I had tried that. Perry could make some truly spectacular beers from across the spectrum, Ordinary Bitters to RIS. ...
