Grabbed a couple cans, but haven’t tried it yet.


Thanks for that! I've been wanting a fresh hop and thought I might miss out this year. Just put in an order.

Re: Wet Hopped Ales?

Is it gone already? I looked online and can't find it.

Re: Wellington

I put in an order with Wellington this week. They had the most stuff I wanted to try of the local Guelph Brewers and this thread was on my mind. So far I've tried their Helles (good, just what you'd expect) and the kviek IPA collab they did with Cameron's (also good, real peach/mango vibe) and I'm h...

Red Circle Brewing & Coffee

Since moving to Guelph I've started seeing this brewery on taps here and there. Anyone know them? Beer good? Is the coffee good? I happen to be out of both of those things right now, so I'm thing of giving them a shot.

Re: Wellington

They've done a bunch of work with the Escarpment Labs guys, who are also in Guelph. I think that probably helped raise their bar a little.

Re: Uncorked-Wine and Spirits Appreciation

2010 Echo de Lynch Bages. This is very nice right now. Big time pencil shavings, a good but if acidity and nicely balanced, moderate depth/body. Feels very traditional Bordeaux.

This is also one of the first wines I cellared, it's awfully satisfying to finally reap the rewards.

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

I'm kinda alternating between drinking more and drinking less. I find when I work all day at home for some reason I'm more inclined to have a couple in the evening. So I do that for a bit, then stop entirely for a bit, then start again. It'll be interesting what happens when the weather cools off, b...

Re: What're you drinking right now?

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 wa...

Re: 2020 Autumn Ontario Craft Beers, Imports & Pumpkin Beers at the LCBO

I'm pretty sure it's just Jai Alai brewed with white oak spirals. I don't think it's aged or anything.

According to their website, it's a seasonal that they stopped making in June. Maybe they made a special batch for us? Dare to dream, Craig.

Re: 2020 Holiday Gift Packs at the LCBO

Huh, some interesting stuff in there. Bourbon barrel aged Imperial porter gift pack, and all the Belgians! St Feuillien, st bernardus, Petrus and Chimay! I'll finally get to try the Chimay Doree, fun.

No Bons Voeux though, which is heartbreaking.

Re: 2020 Summer Ontario Craft Beers & Imports at the LCBO

I keep forgetting that TDD was bought by Molson. Still got a bottle of L'Ours.

I was excited for the Jacobins, their cuvee is a fave of mine, until I saw the reviews. Yikes.

Re: Avling Brewery

I've had a few things from this brewery now and I am consistently impressed. Some of their saisons blew me away a few months ago. I just put in an order and tried the Pilsner and it was also top notch. Very good brewery so far, this might be a new favourite of mine.
