Re: Spearhead Brewing Company

Stopped in today at lunch for their grand opening. They've spent a good amount of money on transforming the industrial building into their bottle shop and tasting bar area which has a large glass wall for viewing of the brewery. It's nice but sorta dark. Don't think there's a kitchen. They have a ne...

I'm not a huge fan of this one. Blacklist is far better.

Flying Monkeys Live Transmission - mild orange creamsicle
Enlightenment Boom by Renaissance - nice a bitter piney floral but a bit of soapy resinous

Re: Signal Brewing Co., Belleville

I didn't eat just stoppef for a brief tour and the bottle shop, but from what I've heard and reviews the food is decent, but the service might be a spotty.

Signal Brewing Co., Belleville

Pretty awesome brewery/restaurant, especially with their patio in summer. A heritage industrial building on the river. Their beers are average to good on the Ontario craft scale, but if you're looking for a place to stop on the 401, it's pretty close to the highway 4mins? and the menu looked quite n...

Re: Napanee Beer Company

Complicated, a sour Belgian ale with cherries. Pretty darn good, if you come across it.

Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

The Muskoka salted caramel thing is meh. Watery, thin porter base (i.e. no body). Finishes with a chocolate caramel aftertaste. Not awful, but not worth $3.65 a can. Too many novelty beers coming from this once solid brewery. Just finished reviewing this one; my opinions were pretty much in line wi...

Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

Drinking one now, orange and lemon zest with bitter finish. It's drinking nicely, but wouldn't go out and buy too many. Also they are packaged in 4 packs, so you may get lucky and get 4 for 1 with a clueless lcbo cashier....

Re: What're you drinking right now?

Collective Arts IPA No 5, which I didn't realize until I got home is actually a DIPA. Anyway, beautiful, hazy golden yellow, a great looking beer. Wonderful nose and the unmistakable presence of citra, which I believe is my favorite hop. I am really growing to love this brewery. My only complaint, ...

Re: Craft Beer Research Project

How to gain a beer drinker's loyalty for a small brewery in rural Ontario. Basically, you need to have the best damn beer in the province, or you have to be the only alternative to the macro in numerous establishments. Craft beer is full of drinkers that will try anything once at any price, but even...
