Re: What're you drinking right now?

Ta Plus Meilleure double NEIPA with peach and passion fruit. After five days in Quebec, it's easy for me to say that for overall quality Quebec is still ahead of Ontario, as IMO has been the case since I began regularly sampling beers from both provinces many years ago. The quality in Quebec, howeve...

Re: Doug Ford

Doug Ford as Premier doesn't scare me as much as the hydro bills I've received since returning from five years out of the country. She's as dead as the raccoon I saw on the side of the road this morning.

Re: What're you drinking right now?

Currently drinking Life In the Clouds, from Collective Arts. It's excellent, as I've come to expect from anything IPA related done by this brewery. The real find today, however, is the previously drank Mash Up the Jam dry hopped sour from them, which is exceptional. These people continue to up their...

Mondial...

Not an Ontario event but I'm quite excited to return to Montreal after several years due my previous expatriate status. Aside from the usual Canadian suspects, I'm looking forward to Three Floyds, Nogne O, Crooked Stave, and Jester King, with a visit to Dieu du Ciel and Peluso thrown in for good mea...

Re: What're you drinking right now?

Prairie Artisan Ales Paradise Imperial Stout I love vanilla flavour in general, but usually not so much in beer. This is an exception. A good imperial stout with a strong vanilla flavour. That said, the 12 US oz bottle is more than enough, especially at 13% alc. If you haven't had the opportunity, ...

Re: What're you drinking right now?

Ransack The Universe, which has become my go to beer recently. Unfortunately, it's my last for a while, as I was just diagnosed with IBS. My gastro specialist wants me on something called a FODMAP diet for at least a month, which apparently frowns on the consumption of beer. Surely this is the way t...

Driftwood Brewery Farmhand Saison.

I wish we had more access to their beers here in Ontario. I've had seven or eight different ones on visits to Vancouver and been very impressed with them all. One of the better breweries in the country I believe.

Re: What're you drinking right now?

Live Transmission Milkshake IPA from Flying Monkeys, the first such so called IPA I've encountered. It's very good and the milkshake is there. As an aside, I have a lot of faith in this brewery regarding Pale Ale's and IPA's, but very little faith regarding stouts. I thought Aurora Heart was a water...

Re: LCBO Summer 2018 Craft Beer Release

Interesting, by style (some could fit in two categories). Glad they aren't bringing in many inevitably stale IPAs. Saison x5 Fruit ale x4 Kriek x2 Sour x1 IPAx1 I was having a similar thought regarding the heavy concentration in a couple of styles. I know, it's a summer release, so certain styles w...

Re: What're you drinking right now?

Nickel Brook Winey Bastard. Yeah...great...whatever...WGAF. Enough already. I was really f-ing pissed off when I was drinking this beer. Barrel aging should complement, enhance, augment the taste of the beer, not overwhelm it. If I want a Pinot Noir, there are many available. They screwed up a very ...

Re: What're you drinking right now?

Napalm Frog. Not sure when you were in Hong Kong, but the situation in mainland China is much different right now. I frequented a bar/store in Qinhuangdao called Wow Beer. They carried I figure between 125-150 different beers at a time and 99% of them were foreign. European, Australian, NZ, America....

Re: What're you drinking right now?

Half way through a HopCity Hopbot IPA Hard to believe but true. I found thirty six bottles of this at a grocery store in Qinhuangdao, China when I was living there. Bought a couple, drank them, then went back and bought the rest. The same store also had Barking Squirrel. Interesting, any proof? Pro...
