That's fine, but if it's considered a contaminant in beer, or any other product, then should it not also be considered a contaminant by itself (i.e. fresh cherries)?

a chemical substance which comes from the cherry pits is currently considered a "contaminant" by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency If that's the case, shouldn't the sale of fresh cherries be outlawed as well? It continues to amaze me that an entity can regulate something it clearly knows nothing ...

Your post of 10:14 today contained a link at the bottom which turned out to be loaded with adware/spyware. Did you mean to send it, and if so, what were the contents about? I don't want to open it up again!

That's listed as Beanmedic's own webpage. No Unibroue info.

I wouldn't be at all surprised if Sleeman's bought them - them promptly move the brewing of Unibroue brands to the Maritimes like they did with Upper Canada. Really, Upper Canada is brewed here in the Maritimes now? I find that odd considering it's not available here. Wouldn't it make more sense to...

I bet that doesn't stop them from charging a deposit on those bottles, does it? Most recycling places here in NS don't even check to see where the bottle was purchased. The first time I dropped off some outsiders, I noticed that the staff person at the recycling place was really looking over a few o...

I just may make an offer of the Grand Cru to our customer base and see what sort of response I get in order to judge whether we should bring some in. FYI, we represent Rodenbach in all Canadian provinces with the exception of Quebec. I'd definitely grab a case if it was available here in NS - as wo...

Greg hit on all the good places here in NS. As far as the beers to try goes, Shippey's Left Coast Stout and Left Coast IPA are very good, as are Rogue's Roost's Pale Ale, Propeller Porter and Pale Ale (as well as the ESB), Garrison Brown Ale, and Paddy's Raven Ale. There's also a new Brewery/Brewpub...

If you've had this in the past, you may want to try it again. Several people in the local homebrew and beer club here in Halifax say it has been improving over the last few batches.
