Not Your Fathers Root Beer
6 × Bottle 355 ml Price: $16.95


I love root beer, but this stuff is vile. The Ginger ale is even worse.


Just wait til you try the Molson Mad Jack Root Beer! ;)

Re: Bellwoods Brewery

Really dig the Hafis Rd. space. Makes for a nice and easy detour on my way to work for the evening shift.

Neitherr Beaus or Great Lakes would be my picks for selling out.

Re: 2016 in review

I'm posting this with the qualifier that I haven't tried something from every one of these new breweries: Of all the names listed there are only 2 I would full out vouch for (HHOE and Barncat), with 3 or 4 more falling under the "potential is there" category for me. Out of the handful I ha...

Re: 2016 in review

Did this many brewers really come onboard in 2016? Is the ratio of good or potentially good brewers to mediocre really as bad as I think it is? No, I pulled that number out of my ass. :roll: Easy there cowboy. I didn't post this to cast doubt upon your site or list. If it came off that way I apolog...

Re: Buffalo NY - what to see and explore?

Chris is awesome. His price on Prairie growler fills was the best I've seen anywhere outside Oklahoma.

That whole little Main St in Lewistown has some neat shops. The bistro a couple doors down will let you BYOB if it comes from Chris' shop.

Re: What're you drinking right now?

Did an other half/veil/grimm IPA tasting with some friends south over the border. Veil has invaded my US top 5, at least for hoppy beers.

Re: Ransack the universe

Once you've had some of the better IPA being produced elsewhere Ransack kind of loses its luster. I like it when I can find it fresh (luckily almost never a problem as of late) but I'll usually pass it up over whichever Great Lakes Seasonal IPA is in the LCBO at the time.
