Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

this is showing stock now, anyone try it? TBW 6 BOROUGHS RYE PORTER LCBO 438093 | 500 mL bottle Price: $ 7.95 It's actually quite good. I wouldn't age this more than this year to be honest, everything is pretty smooth. Four roses really comes through when it gets warmer. Had this last night. I need...

Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

FRACTURE IMPERIAL IPA LCBO 436998 | 6x355 mL bottle SEASONAL/LIMITED QUANTITIES Price $ 16.95 not cheap considering what twice as mad tom goes for.. I had to check, I never buy Twice as Mad and thought it was still only in 4-packs....I would argue that fracture is a much better IIPA, but I'd rather...

Re: Hamilton people, help??

I don't think there is anything walking distance. The West End pub at Emerson and Royal is not too far, but pretty standard beer list.
Despite being at the University, that stretch of Main St. is pretty desolate.

Re: Jester King in T.O.

Great event last night. I got there just before 9 and never waited more than a few minutes for beer. A few things ran out before I got there but I was able to sample 6 or 7.
All beers were solid.

Re: Toronto Visitors - Cocktail Recommendations

I love the cocktails at Northwood, but every time I've gone the drinks take 10-15 minutes to make.

Re: Zwanze Day 2015

More information is indeed out: http://www.barvolo.com/blog/zwanze To summarize: You can buy a tasting ticket for $25 which includes one 4-oz pour of the Zwanze beer and a glass ($15). Tickets will not get you any sort of priority admission. It's just going to be a line with one-in, one-out. They w...

Re: Zwanze Day 2015

However....in my experience, tickets or not, there is always lots of beer left when they opened to non-ticket holders at 9pm.

Re: Zwanze Day 2015

New information I heard over the weekend is that the GLB takeover and Jester King are tests for not doing a ticketed event.

Makes me a bit nervous. Wasn't it because of the huge line to get into a Beau's takeover that they started doing tickets?

Re:

How was the yeast? In the past I've used Wyeast's French Saison. I just got a sample of Escarpment's Old World Saison. I'm assuming that's what they gave you. How did it stack up in flavour? Earlier this year I made a Dupont clone with Escarpment's Old World Saison. Aside from not enough carbonatio...

Re: HB kits?

Probably a fluke, but the Brooklyn kit that I tried earlier this year failed horribly. I think in the end it was a problem with the yeast.
I have since taken that equipment and just used it to brew my own recipes successfully.

Re: LCBO Summer Craft Beer Release 2015

picked up 4 bottles today at the Queens Quay location. Only looked like they had 8 more in stock, but there wasnt a price label out on the shelf so I can only imagine there are more. Also picked up more Rochefort 10 and a bottle of dupont. Drinkvine says they have 200+. I'm doing a tasting at Manul...
