Re: Ontario Craft Beer, Imports and Pumpkin Beers at the LCBO (Fall 2019)

Is the Black Isle Brewery Systems Theory Imperial Stout officially a lost cause? The Spring 2020 release doesn't really inspire me, so Systems Theory would be a very welcome late addition (particularly if one of the scotch barrel-aged variants).

Re: Uncorked-Wine and Spirits Appreciation

My boss is trying to organize a scotch tasting for clients. Looking to pick up around 8 bottles in the $70-100 price range (although it would be fine to have an outlier or two of more expensive and/or some cheaper value options to keep things interesting). It will be a blind tasting, which should be...

Did this one ever make it on the shelves? I can't recall seeing it and don't see it listed online.

FoBaB

I'm headed to FoBaB with a buddy in November. First time for both of us. Anyone able to shed some light on what we can expect and how to best maximize the experience?

Re: Mont Tremblant, QC and surrounding area

I'm headed to Mont Tremblant for a couple of days in September. Preliminary research suggests that beyond La Diable in town and St. Arnould on the outskirts, nothing new has popped up. Anyone aware of anywhere else worth hitting? I was there last year and the Metro/IGA? had a very good selection. L...

Re: Bellwoods Brewery

Anyone else notice that BOYD has been pouring quite a bit around beer Bars in the GTA (Bar Hops, Wvrst, Thirsty & Miserable, even The Brain in Hamilton)? Looks like a sign to me that bars are liquidating before the infection really takes over.

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.
