Re: Ontario Craft Beer, Imports and Pumpkin Beers at the LCBO (Fall 2019)

It's probably the best beer at Loblaws. That is an interesting question, actually -- what is the best beer commonly on the shelf at Loblaws? Other contenders: CA Life in the Clouds, Omnipollo Zodiak, BtP Aromatherapy. (I would have included Side Launch Mountain Lager, but it is extinct of course). A...

Re: Omnipollo beers

Omnipollo Nebuchadnezzar from Brunswick Bierworks is tasting mighty fine. Thanks for the tip! Picked some up today for the start of the NFL season. It is, indeed, tasting great. While you were there, did you also happen to try, or purchase, any "Hazy Mariner" NEIPA? It is similarly tasty,...

Re: Ontario Craft Beer, Imports and Pumpkin Beers at the LCBO (Fall 2019)

Uerige Alt, you've made my day; I'm getting an entire case this time around. Pohjala, Cigar City, Dogfish Head, Oskar Blues... the import list is definitely pretty solid this year. Ontario list I agree, not as exciting but there are some decent ones in there. Elora Borealis is great, so I'm looking...

Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

Fat Tug in cans and it's drinking very nicely right now! Thanks for the heads up. I went and grabbed a half case and it is indeed drinking great. Glad to see fresh(ish) cans here, as Fat Tug is one of the best WC IPAs made in Canada. Like most beers in the style, I prefer drinking this only slightl...

Yes, very true! Forgot about that one. It was terrific. More like that, please.

Re: Omnipollo beers

I really enjoyed the Peter Pale & Mary recently. Good stuff, and quaffable at that ABV.

Re: Too many milkshakes

I like 'em so no it hasn't gone too far. If you don't like them then don't drink them. Applies to any style. I like them too, when they're good. Can you name some that you've liked that I might check out? (other than Milkshark, which was excellent) Last few I've tried have been disappointing to awf...

Re: Too many milkshakes

Agreed, though I have enjoyed a few of them, notably the Bellwoods tangerine one last year, which was awesome. At the other end of the spectrum, the new Lake of Bays peach one is close to undrinkable, IMO (and I'm not one to pile on Lake of Bays for everything they do).

Re: Dogfish Head & Sam Adams

I recall the initial 2006 release of dogfish head 60 minute IPA in Ontario led to major news coverage and an absolute buying frenzy. Our home industry was like 'really? Hoppy west coast sells better than Cream Ales and pale lagers?' Such a comparatively recent transformation yet with such an inunda...

Ah. I don't use Instagram. Thus the "old" part I guess.

You know you're getting old when

You think you are a reasonably attentive and sophisticated beer geek, yet you have never heard of the "boss pour", apparently a thing: https://vinepair.com/articles/boss-pour-beer-instagram/?utm_source=The+Drop+by+VinePair&utm_campaign=4849b856cc-MAR_29_2019&utm_medium=email&ut...
