Re: Cask Days 2017

I'm curious, are there any concerns regarding the serving temperature of the casks, given the weather this weekend? Wonder if/how the large UK festivals handle the temperature of their casks.

Rorschach Brewing

https://www.rorschachbrewing.com/ They have been open for about a month on Eastern Ave. near Coxwell, I think in the old Le Papillon space. Nice space. The beer list is saison-heavy with some sub-6% IPAs and a stout. I only tried a couple of beers on our brief visit. I enjoyed the Enthralment IPA an...

Re: Bar Volo

Landlord/rent issues. The Church location is not happening, at least as per Ralph a few weeks ago.

Re: Great Lakes

Lake Effect is drinking just as nicely as the Karma Citra, i.e. very nicely. Love having these in the cans.

Anyone know what are the main hops in the Lake Effect?

Re: Batch (Creemore brewpub)

Went here last night before a show at Massey Hall. It's close by and they have buck-a-shuck oysters (Wednesday evenings only). The tap list was limited as they were out of the Milk Stout and Wit. The Mild Ale and IPA were decent, the Pale Ale was not. But the best beer on tap was Creemore Urbock. O...

Yet another one. https://nowtoronto.com/food-and-drink/food/first-canadian-place-is-getting-a-beer-bar/ King Taps, set to open in First Canadian Place, promises 50 beers on tap.

Re: Trafalgar being bought

That being said, I do have fond memories of Trafalgar of years and years ago. Their "Abbey Belgian" ale at C'est What was one of the first strong, dark beers I think I ever had on tap. At the time I certainly liked it. I remember the Trafalgar Abbey at C'est What quite well - it was one o...

Re: The Brewery Market

It was a really enjoyable day at Brick Works today. The Brewery Market was just one of many events going on there today; I wonder how sales were compared to usual? It didn't really feel like drinking in Ontario, as the licensed area wasn't segregated away from the fun family area. There was a live N...

Hey Cass. Any more details regarding the "increased family programming" for this event? Beer sampling for the kiddies, perhaps?

Wife had a pint at Louis Cifer last night. I thought it was really good for a sub-5% beer. Great hop flavour.

It's open! We visited tonight. The place looks great. A decent selection of Ontario craft brewers and around 4 of their own. Around 20 in total, I think. We tried their IPA and Liaison, which was described as a cross between a saison and IPA. I found these to be less hop-forward than I prefer, but t...
