Stopped in tonight on the way home from work. When you say "beer hall" it definitely is a beer hall. Great selection on beers on tap and in bottles. I had a Galt Knife lager and a Netherworld. The staff were all friendly and the manager Joe made a point of coming over to introduce himself....

Belgium Style IPA's

My wife was in BC lately and brought me back several beers to try that I can't get here. She always does this when she travels on business. She is good to me that way. One that she brought back on this last trip was a Hoperation Tripel Cross Belgian IPA from Phillips Brewery in Victoria. It was the ...

I've been there twice now and found the service very good. Even before the opening game of the jays, service was excellent. The food that night though seemed rushed. The first time I ate there the food was excellent. The staff seems to really know their beers, which is a bonus. I work around the cor...

The food is great, the service was excellent and I love how the owner Donna made it a point to come over and in...

I'm unsure. I love beers from the East Coast and have to rely on my wife bringing some back when she visits her sister down in Halifax. Luckily for me she has a big suitcase to go with her big heart and likes to make me happy. They do have Propeller Bitter here but sometimes is hard to find. It woul...

Urthel Hop-it

My wife and I were at Sin and Redemption last night and I had an Urthel Hop-it. It was fabulous. Nice and hoppy, although at 9% alcohol, you can't have too many. Loved this beer. It claims to be the first Belgium style IPA. Makes me want to try more of this style. Has anybody else had this one, and ...

My wife and I did the BlackCreek tour last March. It was interesting and one I would recommend. Although not a fan of Trafalgar, I did enjoy the beer at Blackcreek and brought home a growler of the IPA. The stout too was quite good. Based on our experience that day, I plan to pick up some Porter to ...

Thanks for the advice. I was limited in time so could not get out of the downtown core, but ate at Rock Bottom all three days. Food is great and the beer is decent. Nicholsons was quite nice and had a couple of pints there. Wish I could have made it back there a couple of more times. FB's was across...

Islenskur Urvals Pils and Stout

A friend of mine was recently in Iceland and brought me back 4 beers to try. I had two of them this week-end Islenskur Urvals Pils: It is Icelands very first Certified organic beer. A very nice hoppy pilsner with a quick bitter finish. Islenskur Urvals Stout: A very slight aroma with a slight coffee...
