There are going to be too many of these in my fridge soon.


Agree on all points. I really dig this beer, and its a good alternative to Jutsu at (I think) $1.50 less for the same amount.

Re: Collective Arts

I do see how everything is now a sour / hopped sour / hopped fruited sour / Imperial dry hopped fruited wine barrel sour, etc. but I actually don't mind a lot of it. There are some great brews coming out of this movement. And despite these reinventions at least the Vermont IPA style is still pretty...

Re: LCBO Autumn, Halloween and Ontario Craft Beers 2018 Release

Speak of Xmas beers, the best of a lifetime? Figgy Puddin' at KBC. I happened by the KBC pub at exactly the right time, and they handed me a free PINT of this massive, spicy-dark-black-dried-fruits ale. None of these stupid little glasses, a full pint of Figgy goodness. Hard to beat that one. I hea...

Re: What're you drinking right now?

It sounds like there's a lot of variation in the No 6 IPA because I certainly didn't get the flavour profile that cratez described. The one I drank last night reminded me of a dry Bellwoods IPA with a bit of a tang to it. Hard to discern much peach, and I've been working my way through a basket of n...

Re: Witchstock 2018

Ultimately this will come down to basic economics; either enough people will find it worth it at the price point to justify the festival or they won't. I'm not getting hugely invested either way. If I though they were misadvertising the festival, I could see people being angry at them, but that jus...

Re: Riverhead Brewing Co. - Kingston

I echo Belgian's comments on Red House. Awesome vibe, okay taplist, plus a cask (Nickelbrook last weekend).

I also echo the previous poster's comments on KBC. The taplist would put in in the top 20 Toronto bars. I mean they had Bellwoods and Godspeed on amongst a host of interesting options.

Re: What're you drinking right now?

Tried Straffe Hendrik (Brugs) Quad the other night and absolutely loved it. It might be an unpopular opinion but I would place it above St Bernardus and Rochefort 10 (some bottles I've found to be better than others). This is outstanding, I'm placing SH Brugs Quad right between Rochefort 10 and Wes...

Re: What're you drinking right now?

I too am drinking a Cascade Apricot Ale. When I bought this beer, I was a little reluctant to part with over $20 for 750ml of beer. Well, let me tell you it was worth it. This beer is right up there with brews from my favourite brewery, Cantillon. The apricot has all the funky complexity of a good ...

Re: What're you drinking right now?

At the moment I'm having the Grand Cru Val-Dieu. Moving on to a Straffe Hendrik Quad next. Curious about your thoughts on both of these. I have a Strafe Hedrik cooling its heels for later in the week, and plan on picking up the Val Dieu shortly. I quite enjoyed the Abbaye des Rocs, but felt that it...

Re: What're you drinking right now?

Collective Arts IPA No 5, which I didn't realize until I got home is actually a DIPA. Anyway, beautiful, hazy golden yellow, a great looking beer. Wonderful nose and the unmistakable presence of citra, which I believe is my favorite hop. I am really growing to love this brewery. My only complaint, ...
