The Peche Mortel is certainly more expensive than in Quebec (approx $15/sixer), but also cheaper than in Buffalo ($36+tax and deposit according to a Buffalo friend). So I guess it all depends on where you are in the Province. I'll be buying it - Quebec is 4-5 hours away for me, and this beer is tota...

Thanks for the report Greg. I'm really glad to hear that the Great Lakes experiment went well! Is it just me, or does that total list of breweries seems rather short? Come on number crunchers, tell us in fact what % of Ontario brands are actually represented! Or how this list compares to the number ...

I had a can of it while working in my Dad's barn in Eastern Ontario last weekend and it was fine - I recall saying it was better than having a Coors light - it was a thirst quencher with lots of artificial but not all together unpleasant lime. Exactly as advertised. Much more drinkable than a Bud Li...

I'm getting 2 of each on the KW group order Belgian - would be happy to part with 1 of each - I am in T.O 2-3 times week. If you want them, let me know and I'll touch base when they arrive.

Guys, I was just posting it because I found the similarities interesting. I applaud Flying monkeys for their creativity and for developing a tasty new product and I hope it does really well - I suspect it will.

Maple99 Glad you liked the Muskoka. Dennison's is considered one of the best examples of a German Hefe in the world. Perhaps it was not to your taste or perhaps it was not served in great condition. I'd recommend giving it another shot at Volo or Beer Bistro if you have the chance. Here's what some ...

Odd, I was just willing to chalk this up to drunk posting. Why the hate on Bartowel just because it is not a homebrewing type site? There is a section for homebrewing on here and it would be great to see it grow - folks like loudman should be able to help with that. But he should realize most on her...

Fred from Hopfenstark is a super nice guy and would likely give you quite the tour - but I myself have not been out to the actual brewery. Maybe someone can chip in who has?

It looks like their brewpub has evening hours Thurs-Sat:

My post from our Kitchener-Waterloo beer forum - which includes my ratebeer review. Loved it. Not near as articulate as Bobsy :) Holy Shit guys, get some of this fresh now. Stunning for a lager or just overall. One of the freshest tasting beers I have ever had. I'll be interested to hear what you la...
