Re: and the Vitus.

Hey I'll be over there in ten days, and I think even near Hamburg I can buy Franziskaner - plus the local market carries EVERY beer from Kloster Andechs - all delicious in bottle for some reason... Interesting...I bought a few bottles of Kloster Andechs the last time I was there and was rather disa...

Seems the Achel Bruin is out pretty widely now...couple cases at each LCBO. I got them to get some out of the back for me at the Manulife Centre yesterday. I had my first bottle of it...not as good as last time. None of the beautiful raisiny flavors I had the first time. I wonder if it needs more bo...

Have we had the St. Feullian Saison before? It seems...familiar? I dunno, but that's the one I'm probably most excited about On tap, Ginger Man NYC. Pretty damn tasty but sweet, I wonder if bottle aging a few would be a good idea to balance it out (bottle re-fermentation eating up residual sugars?)...

I don't think I've ever had a strong beer from Beau's, I wonder how they'll stack up? If by "strong" beer you mean strong as in well-brewed/successful then I'm totally on your side. Beau's has been one of the most consistently disappointing breweries for me since moving to Canada. Their b...

I'm not sure the website inventory is at all accurate. Yesterday it showed 100 at RBC plaza but I never saw any on the shelf all day. Today it's gone. Today it shows 38 at morningside, but the store manager has never seen it. He looked at his system and said there was 4000 bottles at summer hill! Y...

So is all the Rochefort 10 been released? It's hard to imagine it going as quickly as it did. I saw inventory listed and then found it gone by the time I got to the store.

Saw an ad in the Metro this morning for Founders Centennial and Phillips Hop Circle - said available now exclusively at the LCBO. Can't find it in the database yet though. Over the weekend, I noticed a shelf tag for the Founders Centennial at the Manulife Center, although there were no bottles. So ...

I wonder if in the renovation they damaged their heating system. My last two visits to Volo have been so cold as to be well on the uncomfortable side. Everyone was wearing their coats and many had their hats on. I wonder if this is typical?

Re: Westy + Trappist Tasting

Second, the LCBO page seems to show stock at Bayview Village, which is totally TTC-able (get off at Bayview Station on the Sheppard subway line). Even the Highway 7 and Warden LCBO isn't impossible to get to (there are multiple equally not super convenient ways to get there), so you could do that i...

I wonder if the Breakfast Stout might make it as well...it's very tasty.

Westy + Trappist Tasting

Brand new to Bar Towel (and Ontario...was in California prior). Thanks for all your great info on Westy 12. I managed to secure a few with coworkers and have organized a tasting with friends this weekend. I'd appreciate any feedback or suggestions. Here's what we have to taste so far (2 of each): 1)...
