Re: What're you drinking right now?

Zundert 10 (Quadrupel) from the town of the same name in the Netherlands. Normally priced $4.95 (330ml) it was $3.50 at my local LCBO.

Re: What're you drinking right now?

Lickinghole Creek Sunflower Saison from Virginia.

Good on the LCBO for getting this fairly rare beer in. That said at $11.95 (750ml) I probably won't be buying too many.

Speaking of saisons I miss the Left Field one. I haven't seen it in a couple of years now. That was my favourite.

Re: Coming Soon to the LCBO

Since Founders is being mentioned...anyone know if PC Pils will be back this summer? It just says product discontinued at the website. When it came along near the end of last summer, maybe early September, it became my only regular pilsner until the local LCBO ran out around November. Tons of PC Pi...

Re: Beer in Grocery Stores

Anyone notice price differences between the grocery stores and LCBO/TBS? The other day I bought some Side Launch Pale Ale and DAB (Dortmunder) - both 500ml - at Sobey's. I think I glanced at the prices below the cans before picking them up but didn't notice any price difference from the LCBO where I...

Re: Beer in Grocery Stores

Beer & cider finally came to my local Sobey's. I just stumbled upon the beer fridge whilst looking for frozen pizzas unaware that they now sold alcohol. The fridge area at the end of aisle had only six packs, mostly Coors/Molson etc plus Samuel Adams. I figured knowing how things work in Ontario...

Re: Brooklyn Lager, Local 7 West Coast Lager

I tried Little Norway last week from TBS. It's got that annoyingly grainy macro lager taste.

Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

I've really been digging the CA Saint of Circumstance Citrus Blond Ale. Don't be fooled by the blonde ale moniker - in many ways this drinks like a juicy session pale, or a hoppy american wheat (think gumballhead). Its quite decently hoppy (Citra, Centennial, Amarillo). Perfect summer beer. I just ...

They also had bottles of DDC and a few Hopfenstark's, so I guess that's the impression Parisiens have of Canadian craft.



Hopfenstark was also the only Canadian brewer represented at Amsterdam's Beer Temple (American microbrew specialist bar) back in December.

Re: Beer for non-craft drinker guests?

Cameron's Cream Ale is refreshing without being challenging to "normies". As others have said Muskoka beers. Their Craft Lager isn't particularly good but it's drinkable from what I remember - ie no corn aftertaste or general nastiness like Heineken - ditto Amsterdam's seasonal Starke Pils...

That one's been available at TBS for some time.

Speaking of TBS Smuttynose Finestkind doesn't seem to be widely distributed.

Re: What're you drinking right now?

Christmas can be fun for adults too.
Last night it was Saison Julie from Aschaffenburg, Germany and Delirium Tremens Nocturnum.
Tonight it'll be Samuel Adams Imperial Stout.

Re: The Craft Brasserie & Grille

It feels like a sports bar that actually has lots of great beer, which was a rarity (maybe even non-existent) when I used to go to bars on a regular basis. I enjoyed the Sunlight Park Saison and the Dieu du Ciel vanilla stout. The young woman who served me at the bar sounded knowledgeable enough abo...
