Ask and ye shall receive. I was pleasantly surprised to see the tripel on the shelves of the Maple Leaf Square LCBO this afternoon.

Re: Bellwoods Brewery

After a tough stretch at work, I cracked one of my BOYD 2018 bottles today. It was notably off and tasted infected. Hoping it was a one-off, I cracked a second bottle that turned out to be just as bad. Checked in with a buddy of mine and he had a bad experience with a bottle last weekend. I'm getti...

Re: LCBO Spring Seasonal Beer Release

Worst release in a while. Good to see the Eggenberg Doppelbock and Ayinger Weizenbock back and fresh La Chouffe is nice, but otherwise very slim pickings. I'm honestly a little bit relieved. I have a pretty healthy inventory of winter beers to drink down.

BrewDog in Toronto

A recent BrewDog blog noted Toronto as one of the new destinations for a BrewDog Bar and mentioned signing a lease:

Anyone know what building they've leased?

Re: Time of the Saison

Godspeed HANABI Smoked Saison Brasserie Dupont Saison Both pretty amazing. I like the crisp dryness of the GS, and if course the BD has more roundness and fruit, especially since the bottle is young. If Dupont says BBD in 2020, that is the time when the beer is just getting interesting. Bottle cond...

Re: Blood Brothers Brewing

I was also there last week. They are pretty heavily skewed towards sour styles (albeit a diverse range of "sours") which isn't really my thing. My friends who do like sours have only positive things to say. I narrowly missed Balam, which is disappointing as I also don't get out that way to...

Re: Ontario brewed Tripels...

So MERIT has added to the list of ON brewed experimental tripels with By and By. It's brewed with wine skins and lees. What is the obsession with these types of adjuncts with this style? Would be great to see more tripels that stand on their own.

Re: LCBO Autumn, Halloween and Ontario Craft Beers 2018 Release

Anyone know what's going on with the Boulevard Whiskey Barrel Stout and Bring out the Imp? They've been listed for some time, but in small quantities and not very well dispersed. I assumed it would only be a matter of time before they were rolled out en masse, but I'm starting to get nervous.

Re: LCBO Autumn, Halloween and Ontario Craft Beers 2018 Release

So the Black Isle we got was “east coast” not Morangie. I mean yeah Glen Morganie is on the east coast but we’re they not able to use their name? Still...yummy beer... So is it Glenmorangie barrels that are used for aging the East Coast edition? I was curious about that. Regardless of distillery, w...

Re: Bellwoods Brewery

Does anyone have any intel on the timing of a BOYD release this year? It was mid-November last year; earlier than previous years. Per the October newsletter: "Bring Out Your Dead 2018 is a thing of beauty and will be released just before Halloween. I'm not sure a beer can be spooky, but this w...

Don't think it's hit the shelves yet.

Re: Black Lab Brewery opening in East Toronto this fall

Not to dampen any enthusiasm, but I know one of the owners and asked about the Belgian focus referenced in the BlogTo article. Apparently, they just mentioned in passing that Belgian styles were among the owners' and brewer's favourites and BlogTo sort of ran with that. No real Belgian influence for...

Re: LCBO Autumn 2018 Release

The post is there, it's right above the one you just made. Maybe you just didn't see it on the second page? Nope. Still can't see it. Otherwise I'd have deleted it by now. FWIW - I got a notification yesterday that you responded to my post, but didn't (and still don't) see your original response. V...
