This came up a couple weeks back when I was checking to see if Orval or RGC were still around anywhere. Apparently they take the seasonal releases off the website before they have actually sold out. Peter from Esprit mentioned there were over 200 cases of Orval still in the system despite the fact t...

Re: Andechs Special Hell

I keep finding this at the beer store, and it is pretty tasty stuff, bit I am startled at the lack of ratings on RB. Is this stuff hard to come by? I was thinking yes, but after reviewing some of the ratings on RB and the Beer Store web site, I see this version is brewed for Andechs by Brick. I won...

Re: Old Peculiar Cask-Conditioned

First, the beer in this form is quite different from regular Peculiar at the Granite. Do they not serve Peculiar cask conditioned at the Granite in Toronto? The Granite here in Halifax has the Peculier, Best Bitter, Best Bitter Special, and IPA on the Hand Pumps regularly. I don't think they have P...

I've got to be careful here but you have to experience Steelback (sp?) Blue Thunder. High gravity brewing allows you to brew at 8% abv and cut with water to whatever level you desire (5% normal/pilsner, 4% light or 6% strong/ice). Labatt, Molson, Sleeman, Lakeport, Brick have long taken advantage o...

So is there still some Sam Smith's Imperial left at the LCBO? The website is showing none available. The LCBO has a bad habit of marking the seasonal release beers as N/A on their online stocklist (or removing them from the list entirely) once the promotion has finished, even if there are still bot...

..oh, an if you like Smith's Imperial, get out there and buy a hundred cases or so as it's destined to fall into the ashbin of unsuccessful LCBO seaonal releases. We're looking at a lager from Kazakhstan at the moment which could be the next big thing! They tell us it's the greatest thing since Bal...

Pootz - In order to make it through every day, I have to believe that someone actually drank this and decided it was a great idea to put it on the shelf. I know things can go wrong in processing and possibly we are all granted 1 major screw up but I believe this is one of those classic f**k ups. No...

The major problem that the OSBA was probably looking at with your poster, Beer Geek, was the fact that if anypne from the government were to see another marketing piece not done by the OSBA, the government would take that funding away or not renew it. But the fact that you were about to beat them to...

As far as I know, they're still made in Niagara Falls.

Thanks, I hadn't realised Moosehead bought Niagara Falls Brewery. Does that mean all the beers are made in New Brunswick? Gary No, they bought portions of Niagara Falls and McAuslan to get better distribution in Ontario and Quebec. Funny thing is, you can't get either of those in New Brunswick Liqu...

The beers from Anchor are interesting but don't (in my opinion) travel all that well, why not add to the line-up beers from Sierra Nevada, or Stone Brewing, or the well-established beers from the West Coast like Boont Amber, Anderson Valley is? Someone, possibly Esprit, mentioned once that Stone an...

I've been holding off having one of my two bottles (thanks Radek!) but I finally popped one last night. Anybody who bought a bunch and is having trouble getting through them, feel free to send them my way! It was actually a bit more restrained than I remember my first couple of samples being, but st...
