Re: Fairweather Brewing

Agree wholeheartedly with these recent assessments. These guys are nailing it, with hoppy beers and sours. Nice space for drinking and sampling You can go for a hike on The Rail Trail, very close by. As a Mississauga beer lover, I can make the drive to Bellwoods Hafis location or come here for top e...

Re: Winnipeg?

Just returned from a week in Winnipeg. Most bars have a similar selection of craft on tap, including Half Pints, Little Brown Jug, Torque, etc. I stayed downtown; there are several good spots- The King's Head ( on King ) and the Yellow Dog Tavern, just behind the Burton Cummings Theatre. Even The El...

Anderson Valley Heelch o Hops

It's really interesting how palates differ. I found the hops in Heelch to be pretty muted (stale) in both aroma and flavour with a very broad, malty backbone taking center stage. Happy it's in the LCBO, though. My guess is that it depends on how much malt flavour you like in a DIPA. I was skeptical...

Karma Citra vs Monogamy Citra

El Pinguino wrote:Although Karma Citra is brewed to be an IPA, while the Monogamy brews are APAs. Not that there is always an easy or obvious distinction between the two styles.


Karma Citra:6.5%
Monogamy Citra: 6.4%

Both wonderful, if you're a fan of Citra hop.

Cameron's RPA

I stopped by the brewery in January.
All 6-packs were labelled H1914 ( August ?)
I bought one anyway, silly me. The beer was well past it's prime.

I emailed them to express my disappointment. No response.

RPA is off my list until I see some really fresh stuff.
