Re: Pilsner Urquell canned two days ago?

I am curious about something. This is a lager. Lagers are lagered . How does a beer that is lagered square with one that is 'fresh'? When does that 'fresh" date start? At packaging? Also, how much can really go wrong in a can? Assuming stable product going in and not outrageously long shelf tim...

Re: Sawdust City

Surprised I had to go back 6 pages to find a Sawdust thread. If anyone is interested, posted something new on Sawdust here: https://theipamythblog.wordpress.com/2018/01/15/keep-the-sawdust-beneath-your-feet/ Focus is on their growth in the context of the Ontario retail environment. Cheers! Nice blog!

Re: Great Lakes

I have also been underwhelmed by this Lake Effect release and that includes on tap. In fact i think I have had it on tap more than in cans, though I have bought a number over of cans in the last month or so when it became available. I'd say it must be a recipe tweak. Quality is fine, flavor is meh.....

Re: Beer Cellars

So, my wife and I played 'forgotten beer roulette' last night. As a home brewer, when I experiment with something big or different, I like to put a bottle aside for 'future me'. Well I have a bunch, mostly 5-7 years old that were not only forgotten in a corner, but my crude labels fell off. What cou...

Re: "Peak" Craft Beer?

I hope all the new breweries succeed, but history and logic says they won't. Yeah, I feel bad for those guys who sold everything to open that new brewery if the gist is correct and they're going to open in a saturated market. It would also go poorly for this company who's slated to open here in Lon...

Re: "Peak" Craft Beer?

The top comments on the article read almost like a parody of sullen, knee-jerk conservatives. Reminiscent of the editorial cartoonist "Kelly" from The Onion: https://www.theonion.com/c/editorial-cartoon I feel as if people don't even know what they're referring to anymore when they call p...

Re: Wvrst to open on King West in TO

And now WVRST is also opening one in Union Station! I think this is great news, not only as I frequent Union Station from time to time and there is a dearth of places for a drink. (I know CW etc. is close by) A positive step for a public hub like Union where the new hospitality options won't be the...

Re: What're you drinking right now?

For me, time of day seems to have an effect on my enjoyment of a beer. On occasions when I get home from work around 17:30 - 18:00 and have a beer, it almost doesn't matter what it is - it always seems to taste great. With that "disclaimer"....I just finished a Paulaner Oktoberfest Bier. ...

Re: Lansdowne Brewery

Does anybody know what is happening with them? They appear dead to the internet. I almost never get to this corner of town, so have only visited maybe a half dozen times when they were just ramping up. A friend who lives by mentioned they are closed and lamented the loss to the area. They were real ...

Re: Big Pint

The ten dollar per pint barrier is looming in downtown Toronto. Several places, I have found, are twisting themselves into contortions to avoid it (shrinking glassware, anyone?) But I think it is coming soon. You're right, the bastards cant hide it. 8) Do the math and some bars charge the per-pint ...

Re: Amsterdam Barrel House

I've had some co-workers go at lunch and said it was some of the worst food they've had in a while. The pulled pork was super dry and beer is quite expensive for having their own taps. Bummed as I had high hopes for this place. I sure hope they didn't repeat the mistake they made at harbourfront an...
