Tons of Nugget Nectar at Premier I didn't see any Nugget Nector at Premier on Monday (maybe more was in back though?). I bought it at Village Beer (had it for growlers and bottles), plus saw a couple 6 packs at Wegman's on Alberta. Picked up Hoptimum at Premier. Tried it last night and loved it.

I'm glad I went yesterday. I hadn't tried the 8 and 12 before and they were both awesome. It probably didn't help me in my basketball game later that evening, but I don't get to have Westys everyday.

My favourite place in Chicago when I was there in May was The Publican. http://thepublicanrestaurant.com/ The menu is very adventurous, so if you like offal/charcuterie type food to go along with a great beer lsit, it is an excellent place to visit. If you do plan to go, make a reservation before th...

I should have bought more than just 1 bottle of this when I had the chance. Had this last night and it was easily the best of the 5.

I was here last week. Food was pretty good (I had the stew made with Devil's Pale Ale) and a nice enough beer list (already posted in thread). If I lived closer, I could see going there more often.

Yeah, a serious waste of time & money... especially for the small breweries that use printed bottles. On the other hand, could this be a sign that people are starting to recognize beer as a food product? Why don't they go all the way and enforce a full ingredient listing? Personally, I'd love t...

I got that email too. Then I got a second email just to clarify that I really " did not " win one. Talk about rubbing salt in the wound! Not that I'm in any way upset. Don't get me wrong, it would have been neat to snag a bottle, but it's not really winning when you have to pay to get you...

I love this line: "This is about, 'How do I feed my children at dinner safely?'" She's right though, how are you supposed to know which beer to give your small child with celiac disease if there aren't proper warning labels on the beer? New Grist should put a label on their beer saying, &q...

I noticed this place for the first time on Friday and I meant to check this out Saturday as it's only about a five minute walk from my place. There really is no where in the Cabbagetown area that I have noticed that has a good beer selection. Hopefully this place fits the bill! House on Parliament ...

Funny thing happened in Montreal a while ago. I was in a nice restaurant and I asked what they had on tap. When they told me Canadian, I asked them why they would advertise good local food, but not offer good local beer. First the server said it was local. Then he corrected himself and said, "...

I'm supposed to be visiting a friend down in St. Catherines within the next week or two so I'm hoping to knock the Merchant Ale House off the list. I see from a recent review they have a dark mild, which is a style that has been growing on me. That may be my review, unless someone else has reviewed...

Clever. Whatever you do, do not drink anything they send! They are not suitable for consumption! The Sale of Yeast. Beerinvest.eu does promote beers on its shop, but sells the yeast that is available for every beer presently listed on the webshop. You pay for the bottle and the yeast, not the carri...

I tried this for the first time last week. I was waiting for a train from Long Island into the city and there wasn't anything interesting in the corner store. It really wasn't bad. Better than most macros, but still pretty flavourless overall. I still can't get over that it is legal to drink on the ...
