Re: Beau's and a Bust

Regarding Beau's prices. I was under the opinion that they use organic ingredients. This could account for the higher than average price, and for some they may be willing to pay for it based only on that. That being said, I haven't tried a Beau's in a long time, since they did not impress me in the ...

Re: What're you drinking right now?

In Normandy, I am drinking a local brew called Northmen Biere Brune by Ferme Brasserie La Chapelle. There is lots of malt complexity, with plenty of roasty coffee notes, chocolate, raisin etc. Half way between a double and a stout, I would recommend it.

Also, I have enjoyed some local cidre here.

Avling Brewery

I just got back from this Toronto (Leslieville) brewery on Queen East.

I also got to taste the Avling Saison, Pilsener, Galette (Buckwheat Sasion), and Brevis...

Re: What're you drinking right now?

At bier markt, I retried a favourite Boon Kriek. To my disappointment, it it now a sweet lambic with not nearly the complexity I rememer it having. I will have to remember to avoid their regilar lineup now. At Wvrst, I had a glass of Cascade Kriek. Good, but could be more complex. So far I liked Cas...

ESB - well done.
Kristal Imperial IPA - ditto
Barley Wine - amazing
Dark Czech Lager - also amazing.

Re: Cowbell Brewing

Couldn’t find a Cowbell review thread so I’ll place this here: I’ve been to Cowbell 3 times now. Each time I’ve been impressed with the atmosphere and food, and the beers have been decent if a bit tame. Overall it’s been a positive experience. However when I was there last Sunday I went to the beer...

Re: What're you drinking right now?

Muskoka Black Raspberry Thunder Milkshake IPA is similar to the Kawarthas ice cream that it is named after. It has a strong vanilla and black raspberry component, tasting like the ice cream. However, for an IPA I would like it to be hoppier.

Re: What're you drinking right now?

Recently I have had Big Rock's Hazy IPA at their Liberty Village location. It has juicy hop flavours with balanced malt. This is right up there with life in the clouds, when it is good. I am quite impressed. It seems the local brewer is more capable than the parent company's line up. Although they s...

Re: What're you drinking right now?

Today and recently I have been enjoying Fuller's Bengal Lancer IPA. This is one of my favourite styles of beer, English IPA. Also it is my favourite Fuller's beet to date. It has that yummy English yeast strain with strawberry like esters and a herbal tea like earthy hop presence. I had it on draft ...
