Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

Isn’t this the truth! I think Lone Pine is the only thing I can find that’s WC and fresh. Octopus Wants to Fight was in that wheelhouse too, but it’s been replaced by Karma Citra recently. And as much as KC is tasting fantastic right now, it’s missing that WC bitterness I still yearn for. Isn't OWT...

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

I don't think so -- it has to be brewed on-site for them to sell it directly out of their facility. If a distributor could simply open up a retail storefront (which is what you are suggesting they are doing), then surely Keep 6, R&R and all of our other excellent distributors would be doing so ...

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

La Trappe Quad, i believe, is brewed at Brunswick in Ontario. and it's Netherlands, not Belgian. Yes, correct, saw it in the fridge on my last visit to Brunswick. Though it may still benefit the monks and their causes (in a small way), i guess that means the Ontario version is NOT a trappist beer ....

Re: Summer Seasonal Craft Beer Release 2019

I saw a few of those Great Divide Strawberry Rhubarb sours sitting on the shelves of my local 'BO. Pretty good! Still lots of strawberry and rhubarb flavour. there is more strawberry than rhubarb puree in it. nice beer but a little expensive for what it is. Mill St. Rhuby Cove wasn't a sour but use...

Re: General LCBO Debate & Discussion Thread

launching Feb 2020 with regular KBS, hopefully it makes it's way to Canada :) Somewhat related, apparently after one final production run Founders is discontinuing CBS. Perhaps it relates to the logistics of procuring the bourbon aged maple syrup bourbon barrels for production? Hopefully some of th...

Re: Munich, Bamberg, Brugge, and Brussels.

Across the street from the iconic Hofbrauhaus in Munich is the Ayinger am Platz Wirsthaus, service was a bit uneven but the fresh Ayinger beer makes it all worth it. Food was good too, expect to pay tourist prices though. Hofbrau is of course a must visit, if only for the history and atmosphere alon...

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

It's probably the best beer at Loblaws. That is an interesting question, actually -- what is the best beer commonly on the shelf at Loblaws? Other contenders: CA Life in the Clouds, Omnipollo Zodiak, BtP Aromatherapy. (I would have included Side Launch Mountain Lager, but it is extinct of course). ...

Re: What're you drinking right now?

Another trip to cottage country yielded a new brewery visit- Calabogie Brewing. Never had their beers, let alone been to the area before but I came away impressed. Calabogie Brown Cow Nitro Milk Stout - I love nitro, I love milk stouts. This was excellent with lots of rich chocolate, roasted malt an...

Re: What're you drinking right now?

St. Ambroise Pale Ale (bottle) – a perennial favourite of mine, this old school, defiantly clear pale hasn't lost an ounce of charm, and still drinks exactly like it did ten years ago. A true Canadian classic IMO. Returned some empties to TBS this weekend and grabbed the St. Ambroise mix-pack. Look...

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

Uerige Alt, you've made my day; I'm getting an entire case this time around. Pohjala, Cigar City, Dogfish Head, Oskar Blues... the import list is definitely pretty solid this year. Ontario list I agree, not as exciting but there are some decent ones in there. Elora Borealis is great, so I'm looking...

Re: What're you drinking right now?

Lokal Dusseldorf Altbier. Don't do it, it was just plain bad. Too sweet, thin, metallic and it had a very off-putting sour/barnyard aroma going on. A little digging suggests it's a separately branded Old Tomorrow offshoot. It's too bad, took a chance since I love altbier and no one has one regularl...
