A 50:50 blend of Highlander Pale and Prima Pils. Comes out tasting like a West Coast Amber. Cheers to Gary for all his posts on Blending beers All the posts on blending beers inspired me too. I am drinking a 50/50 split of the Grand River Highballer Pumpkin and Sighna Stout and it is delicious. Sti...

I grabbed the last of them on the shelf today (in case anyone was planning on making a trip there just for them).

I think there were more in the back. I grabbed a few there at about 2pm today and there were several still on the shelf. Excited to finally try it.

So I was at a KW Oktoberfest event last night. Beer list was Canadian and Coors Light. Even non-beer geeks were complaining about the selection because they were expecting some sort of German beer. I could have killed for Creemore or Rickard's!

Gotta solid line up of DDC and St. Ambroise lined up for tonights game. Go Habs Go! Me too! Peche Mortel to start it off, probably going to have a St Amborise Pumpkin with Quebec farmed duck confit for dinner. Go Habs! I think I prefer the Peche I purchased last year than the fresh version. What do...

I read an article about this store. This just seems odd to me... who would go to drink in a grocery store? I'm glad they have a good beer list though.

Re: Changes at Niagara's Best

For the month of October, while NB is closed for renovations, some of our beers and all of the finished Brewers Specials will be on tap at Taps, and I assume will be available for growler fills. I'll be at my parents place in St Catharines this weekend. Do you know if the beer will be at Taps by th...

Got my Garrison and Choklat at St. Lawrence (obviously before kwjd) but there was no Dark Star. No worries, I'll get it eventually and this Choklat should tide over :) The Choklat also seemed to be selling well for a $10 beer. I bought one bottle and there were only 6 left on the shelf from the 20 ...

I loved this beer! I wish I was at Beer Bistro on Tuesday to try this again. I tried it back in March or April... did they brew this again? I wonder if the hops faded at all if it was from the same batch. Though it was the hoppiest beer I've ever had, so it could hold up after a bit of age I suppose.

$13.40 :o


Wow... is the glass anything special with this? On the thread about best values in the LCBO people were listing stuff between 45 and 65 cents/100mL. This one is $1.34 per 100mL!

Ya, I thought it may have been a mistake too since at the St Lawrence Market location it has the price tag of the Duchy Originals Organic Ale. I tried a bottle and found some weird metallic flavour to it (though maybe it is just me).

Hey guys first post, long time lurker. I'm headed down tonight and I've always wondered how much I can bring back over the border legally.. we'll be down for about 30 hours.. There is no amount you can bring back to Canada under 48 hours in the US. It isn't "illegal" to bring beer though,...

Can someone confirm whether the Black Oak event at Volo is Wednesday or Thursday? It says Wednesday above (as well as in an e-mail from them), but on their Facebook and on the Toronto Beer Week page it says it is Thursday.
