Re: Ontario Craft Beer, Imports and Pumpkin Beers at the LCBO (Fall 2019)

Having Muskoka’s Harvest Ale right now. This is not the hoppy ale of years past. If I was blindfolded I’d probably guess it’s an imperial lager. Rich malt and grassy hops, as described on the can. Mediocre.

Re: What're you drinking right now?

St. Bernardus Extra 4 — I am enjoying the Euro hop profile on this, which reminds me of De Ranke Simplex This is more balanced with a nice fruity malt.

Re: Creemore (Springs)

Do the still do the Altbier? On their website they don't list it, so I'd assume it's gone. Too bad, the Altbier, Kellebier and even urBock were probably the best local examples of those styles. Even the Traditional Lager is up there as far as local options go IMO. But I don't think I've bought any ...

I fear they've killed the Kellerbier which was a real gem. :cry:

Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

I've had Jai Alai at about 2 months old and it was still tasty. But I would guess this will arrive super stale. Too bad.

Maduro Brown is coming this fall, not really exciting but probably ages better. Hopefully Cigar City sends something dark and robust as part of the winter seasonal release.

Re: What're you drinking right now?

Flying Monkeys Killer Cupcake Panda — The pandan leaves definitely bring a vanilla flavour, but that't not really what I want in an IPA. The LCBO clerk mentioned it's her favourite beer ever. Top marks for originality.

Re: Bellwoods Brewery

If I had more than a few infected bottles I'd definitely pursue a refund. Those beers ain't cheap! I'd email them and explain what happened, including how they were stored. Probably best if you have some sort of proof, receipt, empties or unopened bottles that are infected. If they are at all intere...

Re: Munich, Bamberg, Brugge, and Brussels.

Besides the obvious in Brussels (Cantillon and Moeder Lambic) I'd highly recommend Noordzee if you like seafood and outdoor dining. They have tables across the street in the square. Famous for razor clams, mussels, etc. In Munich I'd recommend visiting The English Garden and the Chinesischer Turm be...

I left with just a 4-pack of the Nebuchadnezzar as most of the other stuff failed my freshness/price investment criteria. Kinda with I got more Neb.

Ditto at my local Great Canadian Superstore. This is an inevitable purchase when I shop there.

Re: What're you drinking right now?

Beau’s Wag the Wolf. I remember this one being good, but drinking this current LCBO batch and it’s pretty bland. Very little wheat character. Ditto for the hops. I also remeber this being one of the few Beaus beers that I really enjoyed years ago. I had a can in my hand today, but didn’t pull the t...

I went through the Wild pack this weekend. All really nice brews. I may grab another couple packs.
