Yeah, I'm just not a fan of those brews. I'd rather have a win/win with buying a beer I really like AND it comes in a perfect bottle for me. It's almost like getting beer for free! LOL

Does anyone know if it will it still be available in bottles? I love cans for my beer but I love the Mad Tom bottles for the easy removal of labels for my own brews. :D

I may have some stuff if that's the case.

Yeah, sounds about right. No offense taken, it's not my hometown. That's just the situation there. Thank goodness for Half Pints! As for the liquor stores there, just as good/bad as LCBO, just a different selection. My next two trips out of town are Boston and Cleveland. Very much looking forward to...

I do a lot of "large quantity stuff" in this kitchen though - 20 litres of veal stock that takes the better part of a weekend, etc so I'm pretty used to watching stuff and temp control etc...but I know wort is different... Not saying spill overs won't happen. But it might be worth a try a...

Nope. If she wants to drink it (which she does) I have to brew it (which I do). I'm very lucky to have her as a fan! I also have full support for purchases of ingredients etc. when I do go shopping. My oldest daughter complains about the smell and, apparently, she'll get to school and people will as...

so...should I get out of my kitchen and into the back yard to brew? Is that easier... Not unless you have to. I do 5 gallon batches all the time on my stove top. I do all grain with a cooler for a mash tun and a 7 gallon keggle for my boil kettle. It works and the beer is decent. Yes, it would be m...

Yeah, Half Pints is the beer of choice for sure. Original Joe's did have their own house beers on tap. Several different styles and well worth trying although nothing super outstanding. I had some and then went back to the Half Pints Li'l Scrapper IPA, a very decent IPA. Original Joe's house beers ...

Ok, I'm sold!

Have had a couple of pints of Poor Man's Black and Velvet and I like it!

Re: Cider

I tried it blended with Russian Gun and Sinha Stout 50/50 and this is superb, I can see why the mix of stout and cider is popular in the U.K. I just tapped a keg of my own cider and have a part keg of my licorice imperial stout on tap. I may try a blend of the two as you suggest but it may take a b...

I don't really have any other IPAs to add to this list. These are all excellent and good examples of what we have to offer. However, while I do love the IPAs that have been listed and seek them out often for my own drinking when I'm not brewing my own, this was also my first thought: But honestly, i...

I was there just a couple of weeks ago! The Round Table had good beer. Original Joe's was good. A place I didn't get to but heard was good was the Yellow Dog. I did take the time to visit Half Pints Brewery for a tour. Dave is the brewmaster there and he took a good chunk of time with me personally ...
