Also I am an accountant. You are the reason I hate the stereotype that is associated with our profession.


One might also argue that judging strangers on the internet on a Saturday night is also a sign of a rather sad life.

Re: Doug Ford

In my experience (working at a liquor store in AB), buck-a-beer tastes so bad that even the case-a-day types would rather splurge on Busch or Boxer or whatever. Lucky Lager was the big seller and even that is barely tolerable. I suppose if he's going after the homeless person demographic then this s...

Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

IMO Komes, a hefty, sumptuous 9% Baltic Porter, is really great value at $3.65 for 500ml currently. Agreed, and it's also great to see something from Poland that is not a pale lager. There is a real lack of variety in the central/eastern European selection in this province. More baltic porters and ...

Re: Doug Ford

The last three years have been like that Will Ferrell in Zoolander scene/meme for me. I feel like I'm taking crazy pills. Voting for Trump was dumb before it happened and it has been dumb ever since. Ford is no different. They are loud, wealthy, incompetent attention-seeking narcissists with shady p...

Re: Old Tomorrow + Double Trouble = United Craft

'United Craft' sounds so bland and un-creative that they might as well have just used a numbered corporation for the name.

I've never liked the 'Double Trouble' name all that much either. Sounds like an unlicensed board game knock-off.

Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

Odd new listing on the LCBO site - a 650 mL can of Sapporo Premium made by Sleeman.....in Vietnam. 650 mL can Alcohol/Vol5.0% Made in:Vietnam By:Sleeman Brewing & Malting Co Style:Light & Malty Weird. My first instinctive response is that the LCBO website is often inaccurate. If they're act...

Re: Cider

That Pere Jules is awesome but its availability is sporadic. As for domestic ciders, Pommie's Farmhouse Cider is still tops for me (though I haven't seen it around here in close to a year). Their regular dry cider is fine too, but the Farmhouse is fantastic. Of all the domestic perries and 'pear-fla...

Re: Best Craft Pilsners at the LCBO right now

Side Launch Mountain Lager is a good lager (I think it's a Helles rather than a pils, but close enough). Some other suggestions: - Mascot Pilsner - Amsterdam 2018 Traditional Style Pilsner - Thornbury Pickup No. 26 Pils - Flying Monkeys Mythology Pils - Hops & Robbers Unfiltered Pils - Collingwo...

Re: What're you drinking right now?

Waterloo Brune It says on the can "...and has a slightly sweet full-flavoured finish". Too sweet for my personal preference. Yeah, "slightly" is not the descriptor that should've been used there. I picked up their winter sampler pack (containing the Brune) back in either Nov or ...

Re: Beer Advocate Beer Styles...

I think I've shaved it down to about a half-dozen styles. Kvass, Happoshu, low alcohol beer, Faro, Biere de Champagne and unblended lambic are the ones that I definitely haven't had. There might be one or two others I'm missing. If you're looking to tick off a braggot, those Trafalgar meads at the L...

Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

The Muskoka salted caramel thing is meh. Watery, thin porter base (i.e. no body). Finishes with a chocolate caramel aftertaste. Not awful, but not worth $3.65 a can. Too many novelty beers coming from this once solid brewery. Just finished reviewing this one; my opinions were pretty much in line wi...

Re: Sam's Weird Chocolate Stout

I'd love to know what you other beer maniacs thought of it! Didn't mind it as much as you, but won't be buying another bottle - it's just not worth the money. Too much chocolate flavouring, to the point where it becomes cloying, without any mitigating features to counteract it (e.g. some cocoa powd...
