I still have Barbar. It's 16 months old, I should get to it.

(Interesting flavor but I'm not sure my head appreciates honey in beer. :-? )

-- it's just that basically each of those eastern lightweights are "guaranteed" a reasonable level of sales within their ethnic groups many of which are swelling or rising in the ranks these days and that's about it. it's true, Central / East Europeans know their regional beers and will go to all l...

*cough**cough*coolbeer*cough**cough* Yeah, I'm always amused when I see the Cool Beer truck doing keg drop-offs at the grotty bars in my neighbourhood, none of which actually have any Cool tap handles on display... How the hell have those guys managed to get away with it for so long? In Medaeval Ge...

RE: Half-E-Weizen from ROGUE

I didn't really care for the Edelweiss last time it was here, but the other three wheats look promising. This from Peter at Esprit a while back: "FYI, although the name would imply that Rogue Half-E-Weizen was German in style, it is in fact a Belgian style wheat beer made with coriander and ginger,...

A lot of selection, and a lot of emphasis on wheat. Great! All fairly regular Hefeweizens but each is for a different taste. the Saison Dupont will be a real treat (in the little 250ml bottles - it used to get here in bombers!) This beer can be laid down for a time I think. I was curious about the "...

Thanks for the thoughtful answers Paul. Correct, those beers must have some market legitimacy or they wouldn't be there. I think we beer snobs sometimes assume that because 98% of what LCBO already sells already fulfills the 'marketability' mandate, we can expect to be spoiled a little with these se...

That makes sense.

also,

- does Growler = Bomber?

- Any other names? (Is a "Magnum" a 1.5 liter bottle?)

Yes, for only 2.95 it kick's Rogue's butt in value, hee hee. Different beer though. Very nice from the LCBO on Cooper... it sells quickly from the cooler section there so it's very un-damaged. HEADSTRONG is far more widely distributed than SGT. MAJOR, and a good intro/transition to that kind of hopp...

Bubbas, Bombers and all that Beerspeak

Would someone like to clarify what all these terms mean in container dimensions?

I'm pretty sure I get 'bottle' and 'stubby' - the rest I'm lost on...

top right, search scotch major.

Store options and stock availability - you can also request a free store transfer for your convenience but why bother.

I tried the HEADSTRONG PALE ALE the other night and it went over extremely well with my tastebuds. Rather big bottle, but nice balanced brew with malts to set off a bitter character not unlike Sgt Majors in hop flavor. Speaking of the Sarge... I picked up a case of six. :o I don't know about the tas...

Academie de la Biére, Paris

It's been a while, and I wish I could remember all the beers I had, but have any of you been to this place for Belgian beer and Moules Frites? I remember spending a very enjoyable boozy afternoon here in the spring of 2001. I wish I could verify its superiority (I was still learning about 'good' bee...

And in the Netherlands it's the other way around. A beer needs to have two fingers (horizontal of course!) of foam. If not, you can return the beer. Beer without a nice head is just not accepted.:wink: Yes, I noticed in Amsterdam they have an allergy to putting very much beer in the glass, returnin...
