Re: Collective Arts

Yeah, my apologies. That was a drunk post. I never meant to set off a powder keg. :oops: I guess what I was getting at was how I'm growing tired of so many brewers who seem to be making products that I enjoy are now jumping on bandwagons rather than sticking to their knitting. I understand many of t...

Re: Beerhive at Pearson Airport

Sadly no. Nothing special. Some 'captive' crafts. I don't think I've seen anything decent on draft. Best choices are in cans. If you have been spoiled by airports like, say, Portland, you'll probably be happier walking around the terminal for a while getting some exercise.

So it appears even their IPA tanks got contaminated. Can't any of these craft brewers keep their systems clean? What will ...

Re: Collective Arts

The Jan 7th batch of LITC is killer. They have really been off point with this beer lately, but these are back to their roaring best. Hopefully it stays that way. I have been hesitant to purchase their beer for a while now, but I gambled on LitC this past weekend and won. Will continue to drink tha...

North American Craft

I had a friend from out of town buy some random samples of local beer to try and brought some over a couple weeks ago. He generally got lucky with some interesting samples. He left a few behind as he was flying out. One I just decided to try. Something called Hoperation Smash. All I can say is, for ...

Re: Fuller’s sold to Asahi

I'm not thrilled about this, but as far as I can tell Pilsner Urquell has maintained its integrity/quality, so let's hope we see the same outcome with Fuller's. Reading the article it sounds like they have negotiated a guarantee to continue operating and brewing at the Griffin facility, but no spec...

Re: Fuller’s sold to Asahi

So,the two takeaways I got from this article is that Fullers would prefer to be a hospitality brand (because they can't find a way to do all that well in brewing) and that Asahi now also owns Pilsner Urquell, which was a surprise to me. I can't say I'm all that sentimental about this. Sure your bre...

Re: Muddy York Brewing

When I first tried the Gaslight Helles, I was very disappointed, It was under lagered and had a good hit of DMS. I really want to see more locals offer this style, but they do need to get it right to. That's why I was disappointed, it sucked. I picked up a few cans this weekend to give them another ...

Re: Collective Arts

I was just ruminating, where is the big fancy LCBO at Bloor and Bathurst? Not a wealthy enough area? For a statist monopoly it sure has limited locations and limits what it sells very unreasonably at locations that would support better. Why is there ONE LCBO on Queen between Coxwell and the DVP, an...

Re: Collective Arts

A funny thing happened. I picked up a couple cans of #7 as a treat from the LCBO. When I was at the checkout, the person kept scanning and re scanning the can. Then tried to type the information in manually. Eventually she looked at me and said "This doesn't seem right. Is this really $4.95? It...

IPA No. 8 is out https://collectiveartsbrewing.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/11/IPA8_900x900_IG_001.png WTF? I looked for #7 everywhere and was happy to finally try it just the other day when a friend brought me a couple (and glad he did, it was good). Are they just dedicated to cranking out somethin...

Nice!

I am so often cynical about corporate or celebrity fundraising drives as they so often just become marketing stunts, but this is pretty impressive. Especially when you see the huge roster that has signed on. https://www.sierranevada.com/resilience-butte-county-proud-ipa Almost all microbreweries I h...

Re: Collective Arts

new core beer drops tomorrow. it's similar to IPA No. 5 recipe. https://i.imgur.com/SFBtxUT.jpg Whaaah? Can't find #7 in any eLBOw stores. This might just be a good consolation prize... Though, typically I find Columbus a bit vegetal for me, but I'll hold off on judgement until I try this.
