Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

For sure. I did cave to get Tempest in that Amsterdam pack though, sometimes I can't resist. I bought 5 of those Amsterdam mix packs. there were so many left over from the Holiday season. it was cheaper to buy the pack then the beers inside it separately. That was a fairly easy one to 'cave' on; se...

Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

But the Rhubarb Saison and Raked Over IPA are new to LCBO distribution. I'm sure it saves them a lot of cost to include two core brands, but trying 4 unique beers was the whole reason I bought the previous packs. Yes. Others have done this too. It makes one pause to evaluate whether trying the new ...

Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

Wellington Mix Pack Volume 6 is now in cans. unfortunately none of the beers in the pack are new. But the Rhubarb Saison and Raked Over IPA are new to LCBO distribution. Rhubarb Saison was in one of their past Welly Rebooted mix packs though, so it's really only one new beer for the LCBO. It's too ...

I picked up some Weihenstephaner Dunkel a while back and they told me it's not brewed there, but is from the brewery in Germany. I'm not sure what arrangement they have but they're definitely selling imported bottles.

Re: Bellwoods Brewery

20-20 hindsight not to cellar most beers I agree most beers are better of fresh, but I find there are a lot of apologists for infected beers. I see it all over, "keep the beer in the fridge" and "open it extremely carefully" so it doesn't gush all over your kitchen, etc. What ab...

Re: Coming Soon to the LCBO

Once in a while two sours... the Cascade Manhattan was $29.95 and is now selling for $21 while the Cascade Apricot that was $26 is now $16...both 750 ml bottles and apparently being discontinued I picked up a Cascade Apricot for $16 at the Vic Park/Ellesmere LCBO, figured why not for 10 bucks off. ...

Re: Collective Arts

hipster sour fad ends? Hasn't sour beer been a thing since like... the 1800s? (or maybe earlier?) Even earlier, intentionally sour styles like Gose go back to the 13th century. Further to that it's likely that all beer was somewhat sour prior to modern brewing methods that allowed for tighter micro...

Re: Fuller’s sold to Asahi

So,the two takeaways I got from this article is that Fullers would prefer to be a hospitality brand (because they can't find a way to do all that well in brewing) and that Asahi now also owns Pilsner Urquell, which was a surprise to me. I can't say I'm all that sentimental about this. Sure your bre...

Re: Coming Soon to the LCBO

This was (is) one of the best deals at the LCBO imo. $11.95 for these makes them all $3 each, an awesome price for Tempest, which is excellent. Starke is great and Bomeshaker and Space Invader were fresh, and since I still like West Coast bitter IPAs, these were quite enjoyable... nice to revisit. ...

Re: What're you drinking right now

Avec Les Bons Voeux Brasserie Dupont 2016 - 375ml - guys, this is developing fantastically. If you squirrelled away extra bottles you will be handsomely rewarded for your diligent cellaring habits. I have a 1.5 l magnum bottle from 2015 of Voeux that I'm confident will be great for holiday sharing ...

Re: Ontario brewed Tripels...

There are a lot of beers I've had, where I wonder what the base beer would taste like...what a fun beer tasting that could be too. Try a bunch of base beers, then try their amped up versions. Considering how difficult it seems for anyone to do a good base tripel in Ontario, I guess this is a safer ...

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. Haven't you heard, you need a minimum two adjuncts t...

Re: Black Lab Brewery opening in East Toronto this fall

I agree with Gedge's review above based on my Sunday visit, rather than the person who suddenly appeared after him and has just posted the 1 time with a lot of love for this place. I would give it a year and see if I would visit again. Beerinthesix turned up on RateBeer as well and left glowing, 5 ...

Re: Winter Seasonal Craft Beer Release 2018/19

Sadly for how far they've come I still feel like beer is treated like second class by the LCBO. 1st class -> wine 2nd class -> spirits 3rd class -> beer check the number of SKUs listed in any given bi-weekly "vintages" release Good point, I lumped wine/spirits together as first; wine is d...
