Re: Advice for Toronto to Vermont road trip

I've yet to encounter a cop on military turnpike, or that road that cuts through constable ;)

Re: Vermont

Stopped at Frost a couple times on my most recent trip. Love that spot. Their stuff should only get better. Couple spots to add to the list: Worthy Burger in South Royalton has a killer taplist, especially for being in a town as tiny as Royalton. Both Hill and Lawson had taps when I stopped over dur...

Re: Advice for Toronto to Vermont road trip

If you're going through Canada I'd stop at Kingston for a night and hit up Stone City Ales. Easy drive heading into Burlington or Swanton or even directly to Hill from there. The I90 will take a fair bit longer. Syracuse is probably your best stop, with the tradeoffs being you'll get a better select...

Re: LCBO Autumn Craft Beer Release 2016

Decent enough list if not unexciting. If there was any way to ensure close to fresh sucks I might be motivated to pick some up. The real exciting stuff (by comparison) is online only.

How long has it been since we've seen a Rogue seasonal release?

Ditto. I never make it out west as much as I used to.

Re: LCBO Online Ordering Launches

Woohoo - Del Ducato Beersel Morning back in stock! I may grow to like this system yet!

Would case shares from the LCBO/com be appropriate for the Private Ordering forum?

Re: Current ratebeer.com Ontario top 10

Black Oak sold out that first batch extremely quick then we did not see it again for another year or so (My timeline might be off if someone wants to correct me). Within a couple years Smashbomb was the "In" beer for Ontario hopheads looking for a local fix and a (this part is my opinion o...

Re: What're you drinking right now?

tried a friend's Rose d'hibiscus that they got on tap. it was not good. no longer tart like in previous years. it's changed. amsterdam's interesting. you have 2 very talented brewers - iain and cody - but you have a large, multi-provincially-distributed brewery. so i think that amsterdam and great ...

Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

Spearhead was the first time I saw a visible rep of one brewery verbally trashing another (better) brewer while promoting his own product. I suspect that happens a fair bit but it was enough to put me off their products. Their post Hawaiian beers sucking was just a bonus I guess.

Re: What're you drinking right now?

IPA tasting with the aforementioned friend. My scores: 1. Ransack the Universe 2. BTP Aromatherapy. This was close. 3 and 4 in no order:. Smashbomb and Immodest. He didn't score anything but liked Ransack the best as he got Peach (his favourite fruit) in the aroma and taste. He's learning ;) *Edit* ...

Re: What're you drinking right now?

Just wondering but were the last 3 ( "pedestrian" is being nice) for the benefit of your friend? I haven't touched those beers in years, 'though I had a Boneshaker last night which was quite good. Really I could have used a number of adjectives but Pedestrian seemed the most PC ;) The Gre...

Re: Vermont

I've done that horrible gravel road in my old Honda Fit thanks to my old GPS. Best/Worst part was when we finally came out on 16 there was a farmer who was waiting to see if I'd come out onto the highway with or without my car.

Oh, sent a message also.

Revisited a few older favourties (and not so favourites) over the past couple days with a friend who came back from Ohio who's new to this whole "weird beer thing", roughly in order of how much I enjoyed them (or not): DDC Aphrodite Great Lakes Eliot Ness Amsterdam Cruiser DDC Equinoxe Pri...

Re: Current ratebeer.com Ontario top 10

The tick feature hurts ba ratings, agreed. Edit:. Had 10 bitter recently and it'sa shell of its former self. As an aside Black Oak left a lot of money on the table not brewing it regularly back in the day. I remember one black oak rep doing samples at my Lcbo telling me he wished black oak never bre...
