Re: What're you drinking right now?

Better late than never, finally tried some beers from Dominion City. Great brewery: -Sunsplit IPA: I've seen this one hyped up quite a bit and it really is good. Bright, tropical, juicy but with a bit of a piney/resinous edge as well. Smooth and creamy. -Darkest Hour: A nice dark Czech-style lager. ...

Same here. Two orders now through Canada Post dropped off at my door, no signature/ID/anything.

Re: GLB Tetrahedron Belgian Quad (Rum Barrel Aged)

Agreed...hard to get great quads locally. I do a "Merry Quadsmas" event over the holidays and it is a struggle to find decent options that aren't the go-to ones from Belgium. I do have the 3x versions of Tetrahedron in my fridge right now...holding out hope they'll be ok. I just had my la...

Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

Good deal on Amsterdam Boneshaker 7.1% IPA at the Beer Store currently. $68 for 24 works out to $2.83 a can. That makes it a top 10 value. https://www.thebeerstore.ca/beers/amsterdam-boneshaker-ipa/ Mad Tom also 5 bucks off a case, $65.95 for 24 x 473 ml. $0.75/can savings off a singles price, so n...

Re: brewed.today

FYI if the brewery is using Canada Post, the delivery may not come to your door due to CP's covid-19 policy. drivers are leaving a notice on your door (or community mailbox) to go pick up the package at your local "post office" (ie Shoppers Drug Mart, in my case) I placed 3 orders a few d...

Re: brewed.today

Hello. Long time lurker, very infrequent commenter. I'm the author of the website. Thanks for the shout out and kind words! Given what's been going on lately I just wanted to re-share the website and provide, what I found to be, some interesting observations. brewed.today shows 2 days (the day of a...

Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

I dunno, Canuck is $2.90/can and just as good as Jutsu, most of the IPAs I see in the $4-5 range for a 473 ml can are DIPAs. Lagers take more time to brew no doubt, but typically use less raw materials than heavily hopped, higher ABV IPAs so I imagine it balances out somewhat. Bellwoods is straight...

Re: What're you drinking right now?

Feel like I've gone through lots of new beers lately: Common Good New World Pale Ale (Sabro) - Interesting hop variety, has a very coconut-esque flavour that plays nicely off the tropical fruits. Solid pale ale. Common Good Wexford Oatmeal Stout - Lower ABV oatmeal stout, thought it tasted like a mi...

Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

I get my share bit of Bellwoods stuff. My take on their prices is that while their more limited stuff has gone up a fair bit, I think they have actually done pretty well with a lot of the rest. I say this because given how much craft beer prices overall have risen semi-recently, holding the line ca...

Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS.

They explained that production costs are going to be higher now due to making smaller batches and delivering the beer several times a week to ensure the freshest product is on the shelves. I did come across that article, so I definitely respect that will add cost. Kudos to them for doing so since I...

Screw you guys, I'm very mature. I think you're being a little unfair to sean here. I didn't read his post as "why the heck is Bellwood charging these prices?!" but more like "How can I justify buying this at that price?" Of course Bellwoods will and should charge what the marke...

Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

Bellwoods Brewery Jutsu 473 mL can | LCBO#: 16051 $4.50 Is it just me or is $4.50/can for a 5.6% ABV pale ale a little crazy. I know Bellwoods has always been a bit pricier, and in the past I saw the value, but I thought since expanding and introducing a canning line they'd be able to bring their p...

Re: 2020 Spring Ontario Craft Beers and Imports at the LCBO

Can't wait to see all of these in late summer!

All jokes aside, I'm pretty excited to see Vox Populi make it out here. Definitely a bunch I'm looking forward to.
