Re: Expiry Dates

Portwood --- l should have been more precise --- my concern over bb dates is shopping at lcbo. I've never thought about checking bellwoods since they do small runs and I'm getting it from the source. The other brews u mentioned I've never had but thanks for the examples. My fav brews at lcbo do have...

Re: Expiry Dates

Thought I'd revive this thread from '08 rather than start another....anyway, I'm concerned that Aromatherapy beers have no date codes of any sort on their cans---why not???? Being able to determine freshness is essential for craft beer, imo. It's often a deciding factor for me when choosing a select...

Re: LCBO Autumn & Halloween/Oktoberfest Beer Releases 2015

I'm excited to see the Ayinger Oktoberfest coming here for (I think?) the first time. IMO it's the textbook Okt/marzen; I've measured all others available over the last few years in Ontario against this and have been continually disappointed--- I think it blows the likes of Sam Adams, Beau's and Hof...

^speaking of pumpking, how have you guys found it this year?---I felt it had something slightly different going on and I didn't love it like I have every other year. Then I noticed sulphites listed on the ingredients and wonder if that caused me some sort of mild reaction--I don't recall this being ...
