Re: Bellwoods Brewery

Anyone else notice that BOYD has been pouring quite a bit around beer Bars in the GTA (Bar Hops, Wvrst, Thirsty & Miserable, even The Brain in Hamilton)? Looks like a sign to me that bars are liquidating before the infection really takes over. You're going to make me want to taste another bottl...

Re: Bellwoods Brewery

Just opened a 2018 BOYD based on other posters experiences, and I'm glad I did... it tastes great. Thanks! Sorry about you luck. I'd suggest contacting the brewery, my guess is they bend over backwards to compensate you for a bad bottle. As I posted above, I have kept my BOYD 2018s in a cold cellar...

Re: Bellwoods Brewery

After a tough stretch at work, I cracked one of my BOYD 2018 bottles today. It was notably off and tasted infected. Hoping it was a one-off, I cracked a second bottle that turned out to be just as bad. Checked in with a buddy of mine and he had a bad experience with a bottle last weekend. I'm getti...

Re: lcboapi.com and drinkvine.com

I'm not sure who created boozewatch.ca.. but it's not mine. On January 15th drinkvine.com will stop working and I plan to close the site down shortly after that. Creating and launching drinkvine was a really rewarding experience, and I hope in some small way it had an impact on making craft beer mo...

Re: What're you drinking right now?

CA radio the mothership-a big bastard, but damn it’s good. First time I’ve had it in 2 years....not sure if it’s changed or if this batch is just tasting especially tasty. Almost a month old, but still tasting super fresh. On tap next: Barncat’s Blueberry Double Juice iipa. :lol: I wanted to get ou...

Re: One of Canada’s biggest brewing equipment companies in receivership

This is terrible news. I saw on instagram today that Indie Alehouse had lost 800k for an upcoming upgrade. My heart goes out to them and smaller breweries that won't be able to make ends meet with this unfortunate turn of events. Let's hope that some of the bigger craft breweries can help out some o...

Re: Bellwoods Brewery

Does anyone have any intel on the timing of a BOYD release this year? It was mid-November last year; earlier than previous years. Per the October newsletter: "Bring Out Your Dead 2018 is a thing of beauty and will be released just before Halloween. I'm not sure a beer can be spooky, but this w...

Re: Bellwoods Brewery

Had the Scotch Bonnets Skeleton Key today and was very impressed. I've had a number of stouts with pepper in them, and I think that this is in my top 2 or 3. The pepper is so nicely integrated that it just warms the palate enough to let you know its there, without being the major focus. The sweetnes...

Re: Online Brewery sales

I've ordered both from Half Hours on Earth and Small Pony. The beers were fabulous. Shipping proved very easy, and I thought reasonably priced. HHoE will be able to send you more beers than Small Pony, but that's largely due to the format (cans vs. 750s). I would certainly order from both of them ag...

Re: Witchstock 2018

Seems that it sold out in less than a minute. clicked "buy tickets" right at 10, and was nearly immediately told it was sold out.

To those that go, enjoy!

Re: Getting beer back from Belgium?

If you're going to declare it, why not just check a box of beer? I'd thought about that but my main concern would be breakage. Not really. On the few times I've flown with beer, I would wrap things in socks and tee shirts and whatnot, use what you've got in other words augmented with whatever bags ...

Re: Getting beer back from Belgium?

This is good to know - thanks you two.

Would you recommend that I bring packing supplies like bubble wrap if I'm going to buy an extra suitcase?

Getting beer back from Belgium?

I'm going to be in Belgium in May and I've been wondering about the best way to get beer back to Ontario. I thought I'd ask those of you that have went how you've typically done it. Do you mail it back? Bring it in your luggage? I was really hoping to somehow get as much beer back as possible, as I ...

Re: Small Pony Barrel Works

Thanks for the feedback guys. I looked at ordering 6 bottles to Etobicoke and it was only $16 or so in shipping. Seems reasonable. I'll give em a try!
