You're right if you think the SIB beers are better on draught. The bottling process used at Heritage allows too much oxygen into the beer, which starts the staleness clock ticking right away. The draught packaging process is much simpler and is almost bullet-proof.
Hoppy New Year.

Scotch Irish Beers

Hello folks, it's your old pal Perry. I was in Germany enjoying the worst European winter in 50 years when the Heritage sale went down. I hope Ron and Donna enjoy their retirement. I also hope that the S-I brands that they own will continue to be brewed, even though that I have no financial interest...

Hi

Just a note to say hello and that I remember you all fondly. I have not given up the dream of Hopping Wolf- just postponed it until times are better. Heritage continues to brew the old SIB beers, though I don't have the courage to taste them. If they are not up to scratch, my apologies. The TFOB has...

Thank you for keeping tabs on the Sarge. I don't often drink it myself anymore. My experience with Heritage has disillusioned me greatly and I haven't the stomach to see what has become of my creation. I do notice that there are "floaties" and haze in the bottles, even when fresh. This was...

Hopping Wolf is in the advance planning stages now. It will be in the Ottawa area, even though I realise that most of my sales will be in the GTA, Hamilton, Kitchener and export. Two core brands are planned, a hoppy and bitter PacWest IPA (duh!) and a porter of some kind. The rest of the line-up wil...

It's when the "festival season" comes around that I really miss the business and the die hard beer geeks (of which I count myself as one). I am still making beer on my patio, but none of it will reach the people (other than me and a few of my Ottawa friends) that might appreciate it. I can...

Michael, congratulations from one of your most ardent admirers. Cool Beer has first rate equipment and QC. When Church-Key brewed my beer, it was bottled at Cool Beer and Jamie's approach was top-notch. I wish you the greatest success and I hope that someday your world-beating Weiss will come out as...

VanKleek Hill is probably closer to Montreal than to either Kingston or Ottawa. That we don't have free trade East-West will probably keep Beau's out of the Quebec market.

Hello from Perry

Hello to all the beer lovers and "true believers" out there in BarTowel land! I have taken a break from the brewing world and am currently (successfully) selling Toyota and Lexus automobiles at the 3rd largest Lexus/Toyota dealer in Canada. Brewing is never far from my mind though as I con...

Perry is no longer at Heritage Brewing

Hi folks, Just a note to say that I am no longer with Heritage Brewing. I am now free to persue "other projects" :wink: Although I may not be directly involved in the beer industry at present, I will keep a keen eye on what's going on and I will pop up at certain venues from time to time. ...

There are no plans to package the John By in 6-packs. The Corporal Punishment is being submitted to the LCBO for sale, and it too will be sold in singles if accepted.

Enjoy it while it lasts. The offshoot of this is that Ralph and Ina realised that tying vast amounts of time and capital up by bringing in cases of private import beers was not paying off. Don't expect that the bottle selection at Volo will be as ample as it had been.

The beer will always be "heavy" in the mouth. A combination of low carbonation and tons of malt will do that every time. The sweetness level will decrease however.

I first has Bass Pale Ale from the LCBO back in 1974. It was sold in a stubbie bottle and cost 45 cents a bottle. I'm sure it had been a regular item for many years prevoius as well.
Sometimes "product discontinued" indicates a new package is here/coming. Maybe it'll show up in cans.
