Re: Zwanze

Just circling back to this, Zwanze at Moeder Fontainas was aweseome!! Busy but service handled it fine. Burlesque performers, insane Cantillon tap list, great night!! And the 3 days of drinking at Cantillon and 3F leading up to it were incredible.

Re: Ottawa and area help

Weird that Lupulus is closed Saturday afternoons?? Could have sworn I was just there on a Saturday, but maybe it was Sunday. Anyway, yeah odd for sure. If you are mobile with a car, Small Pony is new and definitely noteworthy. Check hours, but I think they are open Saturday afternoon. And depending ...

Re: Zwanze

So... I can maybe rearrange some planned travel to Europe in late September to be in Brussels for Zwanze 2018. Anybody have any insight/experience on whether it's worth the effort? It would mean extending my trip by about 4-5 days, which isn't negligible from a budget/vacation time perspective. I ce...

Denver/Boulder

Hi all, kind of surprised that no Denver report on here. Saw one from almost 10 years ago that included some Denver info, but also stuff on the way down. So figured I'd make one just for Denver. Mods merge it with the older one if you prefer. Just spent a week in Denver, awesome city!! And beer is c...

Re: Coming Soon to the LCBO

Thought I saw Keep6/volo tweet something about launching kbs this year yesterday and an event at volo, but I didn't see a follow up about distribution (if any).

Re: Vermont

Interesting to hear about Vermont nowadays, although not totally surprised. I was amazed that HT & SOS maintained that level of frenzy for *so* long. Remember SOS started contracting out (at Four Roads I think) and of course Alchemist opened that new brewery. With the extra volume, new trendy p...

Re: victims of success?

rejetable does it mean (partially) that 'everyone else' has now made the Vermont IPA style and this fact has made it harder to hype the originator? Well, I'm just a guy who drinks beer, not much of a pundit, but yeah I think for sure that there is so much competition in that market now it has to ha...

Re: Vermont

Quick one-night in Burlington with side trip to Waterbury/Stowe. Man, it struck me how quick the landscape has changed in a few years. Winooski Bev had cases and cases of Heady and SOS just sitting on the floor on a Friday evening. Saw SOS at at least 2 other stores as well. Also, during dinner at F...

Re: Miami

My wife just got back. I sent her to Union Beer store and J Wakefield to mule beer back. She's not much of a beer person, but said JW was super cool spot.

Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

The two Ottawa stores showing inventory are the least likely stores you could possibly imagine. Oh well. Rideau had 800 bottles at opening this morning nothing showing online.

Re: Ottawa and area help

Pretty dead around here lately, but just thought I'm mention I was into Lupulus last weekend. Really nice spot. Beer list was unsurprisingly well done. My only disappointment, although again not a surprise, is that it is very food focused. Definitely not a place you want to go to argue about the hoc...

Re: Molson Buys TDD

Oh, I had that confused. They got bought by RJ, who don't qualify as Macro. Isn't Dunham considerably smaller than DDC or TDD? For sure Dunham is smaller. Just reacting more to the point about comparison. If you only mean compared based on size, well no Dunham doesn't fit. I won't really miss TDD t...

Re: Molson Buys TDD

St. Ambroise were also a pretty good brewery when they were bought. Brasseurs De Montreal had a similar breadth of offerings as TDD, though they lacked some of the cache of the TDD brand. But outside of Dieu Du Ciele, nobody else in Quebec really compares, do they? I've been saying for a few years ...
