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

The stout is bordering on black lager, thing Napanee Blacklist with coffee.

Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

The pale ale is meh, the sour/gose is much better.

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...

Re: Stalwart Brewing beer removed by LCBO after one day on sale

Apparently the LCBO is getting stricter and stricter on enforcing their crazy label requirements. Seems many breweries who have been around longer know to steer clear of anything *remotely* close to bad text/graphics topics, with Doctors and medicine being a well known one. Too bad such information...

Re: Stalwart Brewing beer removed by LCBO after one day on sale

I would agree, that some doctor probably saw this and complained either directly or through their association.
