Re: Coming Soon to the LCBO

I've still got a bunch of bottles of CBS from last year's release. How long of a shelf life do those babies have anyways? I don't think long cellar stints are recommended for CBS (or KBS for that matter). For example, the best before date on the KBS that was on shelves here in Ontario earlier this ...

Re: Collective Arts

Finally tried No. 6 tonight; it wasn't great, which sadly makes it the worst in their IPA series by default. OK, in all fairness, I never got to try No.1, but loved all of the others to varying degrees. One can of #6 would've been enough for me (especially at $5 per), but I bought a pair. So I guess...

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.

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

don't want to derail but has anybody tried Autumn Ale by Royal City? potato beer! :lol: taste more pumpkin than pumpkin beers. https://untappd.com/b/royal-city-brewing-autumn-ale/1273477 Yep, I picked that one up at the brewery in Guelph probably 2 years ago now.

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

I'm sure it's true in cases. Although many claim they taste pumpkin in St. Ambroise Citrouille though it has none. This may have been true in the past, but I am (quite coincidentally) drinking a can of St. Ambroise Citrouille at this very moment which seems to disagree. Ingredients: Water, malted b...

Re: ISO: Ontario Brewery Ticks

I should be able to help you out with Stonepicker. I live nearby and have been planning to go there in the near future. Unfortunately I can't do an IP trade so it'd have to be via mail.

Nope. Still can't see it. Otherwise I'd have deleted it by now.

Re: What're you drinking right now?

Did the Across the Nation packs over the last week and a bit. This whole project is like Beer Camp if the Kamp Krusty councilors were put in charge of brewing. The fast-fading Torque collab was my favourite of the bunch while at least 3 of these got poured down the drain. I won't stand idly by whil...

Re: LCBO Summer 2018 Craft Beer Release

This may not mean anything, but they just added Saison Dupont back to the database: here's a link. In my experience, that usually means it's about to roll out to stores sooner rather than later. Amusingly, they didn't bother deleting (or re-using) last year's database entry, so there's two Saison Du...

Re: LCBO Autumn 2018 Release

Weird. I made a post in this thread this afternoon but apparently it fell into the fifth dimension? It seems to exist within the forum's data (i.e. it shows up in my list of posts when I check my profile), but not in the thread itself. Whatever - here it is again. Is the Van de Keizer Imperial Blond...

I was also wondering this, so I looked into it a bit and the answer seems to be 'yes'. Both of the vdK brews have had a name change.

It looks like the vdK Blauw is now called "vdK Imperial Dark".

Re: LCBO Autumn 2018 Release

I saw the Eisbock at the top of that list, and that was enough for me. I've been waiting for them to bring that nectar of the gods back for like 4 (?) years now. Other than that, I'm not seeing anything too exciting here. Dragon's Milk / Fuller's Imperial Stout are always nice to have. Ditto to the ...

Re: Grand River Brewing

Ah, interestingly I only saw the 3 beers listed on their website. Perhaps they're selling themselves short? It does say new website coming soon though, to be fair. . Those True North labels have been at TBS for years now. In cases only, which is the main reason I've never bothered trying them (othe...

Re: Doug Ford

... denying buck-a-beer to someone else. Has anyone actually suggested that? Expressing justifiable doubt that many producers will be interested in making buck a beer is not the same as saying "we shouldn't have buck a beer". BTers are just being realistic. The financial incentives for bu...

Re: Nickel Brook Brewing

Given the historic (and current) imbalances of power that often exist, on a societal level, between men and women, there's a difference and while it's easy to make the comparison as has been done, it's not particularly accurate nor equal. I don't mean to be rude but you're basically attempting to j...
