Re: Wet Hopped Ales?

Elora just released a new Wet Hop pale ale yesterday.
Grabbed a couple cans, but haven’t tried it yet.

Re: Wellington

I put in an order with Wellington this week. They had the most stuff I wanted to try of the local Guelph Brewers and this thread was on my mind. So far I've tried their Helles (good, just what you'd expect) and the kviek IPA collab they did with Cameron's (also good, real peach/mango vibe) and I'm ...

Re: Red Circle Brewing & Coffee

Coffee is pretty good, but pricey. I’ve had maybe half a dozen beers of theirs. Most have been at least decent, a couple a bit better than that. I wouldn’t go out of your way for them. Sparrow(out of Cambridge) has equally as good coffee, if not better. And better beer for sure. Closer to Guelph tha...

Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

CIGAR CITY MARGARITA GOSE LCBO 15604 | 4x355 mL can SEASONAL/LIMITED QUANTITIES Easy going, should probably be served very cold, like many trendy examples is very tart and lemony and a bit salty, and not so much funk or complexity or interest. As with Ciders, it's hard to find a good Gose with iden...

Re: Wellington

Welly has picked up their game with a young and motivated team. Regaining their Mojo of 30 years back They’ve certainly moved more with the times, these past 2-3 years than ever before. The one-offs are for the most part quite good....which wasn’t always the case in the past. Their hoppy beers have...

Re: 2020 Autumn Ontario Craft Beers, Imports & Pumpkin Beers at the LCBO

I enjoyed the Welly Rising Tide Collaboration Mix Pack and would recommend picking it up 8) canned Aug 07th, 2020. I’ve only drank the Great Lakes and Cameron collabs so far. But both have been excellent. So good in fact, that I grabbed a “crowler” of the Cameron’s one at the Welly walk-up window a...

Re: 2020 Autumn Ontario Craft Beers, Imports & Pumpkin Beers at the LCBO

I'm pretty sure it's just Jai Alai brewed with white oak spirals. I don't think it's aged or anything. According to their website, it's a seasonal that they stopped making in June. Maybe they made a special batch for us? Dare to dream, Craig. Haha, I like you, you make me laugh! Canned 05/18/20. It...

Re: 2020 Holiday Gift Packs at the LCBO

Also glad to see Sam Smith 3 pack plus pint glass returning . Just hope that we are able to get Sam's Winter Welcome at Christmas. Wonder what Fullers Vintage will be like now because of the new Japanese ownership and the fact that they have lost their last two head brewers over the last year and a...

Re: 2020 Autumn Ontario Craft Beers & Pumpkin Beers at the LCBO

updated list with imports section. the LCBO agent isn't sure if these Imports are final and last year the Lederhosen and Dirndl packs hit late Summer or early Fall and were not on any list so keep your eyes peeled! 8) next quarterly list should be Winter season which begins first week of Dec. Nice ...

Re: 2020 Holiday Gift Packs at the LCBO

Huh, some interesting stuff in there. Bourbon barrel aged Imperial porter gift pack, and all the Belgians! St Feuillien, st bernardus, Petrus and Chimay! I'll finally get to try the Chimay Doree, fun. No Bons Voeux though, which is heartbreaking. Hopefully that CA gift pack, isn’t just their name f...

Re: What're you drinking right now?

Compared to a few years ago, there is a tremendous availability of beers with varied and intense flavours. This is good, but I was talking with another Bar Toweler recently that sometimes you just really want, for lack of a better word, a "regular" beer. Had a Saulter Street It's About Bl...

Re: 2020 Autumn Ontario Craft Beers & Pumpkin Beers the LCBO

Glad that the Henderson Stout is back, I thought that was really quite good. Interesting that Fracture seems to be listed as cheaper than in other years??Hopefully that doesn’t mean they’ve lessened the hops in it.

Re: Cigar City Marshal Zhukov Russian Imperial Stout

+1 (not worth $20, even for 650Ml) I was wondering at the high price, but I like it. Heavily built. The flavors are dense and carry on for a loooong time... it's a good hybrid of UK traditional and USA style RIS, with some nice leathery tones setting off the ample richness. There are many good RIS ...

Re: Barncat Artisan Ales, Cambridge

This new Pilsner is great. I love good pilsners. There's more Ontario pilsners than I tend to think there is (perhaps not all 'good'), but they don't get the same attention as, say, IPAs. Yeah. I think to be made really well they require costly time, attention and finesse - all on top of the expens...
