Re: Nickel Brook Soda

Question for those of you exploring the craft soda scene. Anybody come across a good unsweetened tonic water in the local market? Personally I just don't like sweetened drinks, sugar or otherwise. I get that quinine can be a potent substance without some sweetener, but I actually had a totally unsw...

Re: Persian Empire

At least they have the decency to categorize their beer as alcoholic and non alcoholic. That's a big help. Also, their brand is "Canada's No 1" at something. Good for them! As for the price, remember 2/3 of new breweries seem to be started by accountants wanting a change of life. This migh...

Re: General LCBO Debate & Discussion Thread

I guess one of the Steamwhistle owners is back and cleaning house hehe Damn, I'm a sucker for that era of BMWs. I wonder if that's just a wrap that comes off easily, I bet they'd let it go for a bargain... I couldn't quite put my finger on why that Von Bugle stuff tasted so bad, but now I got it. F...

Re: Von Bugle Brewing

These guys confound me. Finally someone sticks their neck out to make a locally brewed Vienna Lager, understandably a bit of a boring category, but then they find a way to make it even more *meh*. Yet they spend all the effort and money to buildi a separate brand for said *meh*. Was this like some h...

Re: Vienna in Venice? Belgo-Austrian Herbal Ale

From the Spadina Front store - Birra B2O Venusa Ambrata.. 75 cl bottle. Not even listed in the LC system, From the Venetian islands, sorta interesting. A basic fruity Vienna Lager style with some Belgian Ale spice and pear overtones, bottle-conditioned. A high fermentation amber beer, unpasteurized...

Re: What're you drinking right now?

Recently: Saison Dupont Cuvee Dry Hopped (Amazing!) Boon Framboise (Unfortunately, not a traditional lambic. This has been sweetened.) Aventinus Eisbock (Also amazing) Hop City Boxcar Bock (Not bad) Muskoka's Munich to my Ears (Very good) I think the Munich is done for the season. I haven't seen it...

Re: Brunswick Bierworks

A business being able to attract investment, and being an attractive investment aren't necessarily the same thing. see Constellation Brands buying Ballast Point for $1BILLION and selling a few years later for $40 Million :o (rich people with big egos tend to think they're smarter than anyone else. ...

Rhino clearout

Word has it The Rhino is doing a big sell off of beers in their treasured cellar. Supposedly great deals. I don't see anything on their website about it and I'm too far away to check it out. If you are nearby, it might be worth looking in.

Is this the new Beer Lover Magazine I've been hearing so much about? Apparently they were handing out free copies all over the place this summer. :wink:

Re: Collective Arts

I generally like this series, but they did lose me with a bunch. I think they were #6 to #12. Fruit and lactose additions just don't appeal to me.
#15 is drinking nice.

Muskoka Brewery

First of all, I was surprised to find there hasn't been a thread for Muskoka here. It's amazing how spoiled for choice we have become! You'd think someone would have had something to say about Muskoka in all these years. Perhaps they should have released a fried chicken sour to get on our radar. /s ...
