I just picked up a bottle. Hilarious to read that "bierig" is included as an adjective (beer-like) :)

Re: Ontario Announces First Winning Bidders for Sale of Beer in Grocery Stores

To be eligible to sell beer, each grocery store must meet a number of characteristics: Location sells a full line of food products; A minimum of 10,000 square feet of retail space is occupied by food products; and Location is not primarily considered a pharmacy. gee, i wonder if the macros behind T...

Whole Foods does such a good job with beer in the US. It's really impressive.

Re: LCBO Winter craft beer release 2015

That is hilarious and exactly the opposite of the atmosphere you look for (or I look for, at least) in a good pub. I'm usually impressed when staff who are not working are sitting at the bar - tends to mean they actually like the place. Usually a great source of info, too, if you strike up a conver...

Re: Bellwoods Brewery

The Double Polaris is quite nice. I'm unfamiliar with the hop. I got a bit nervous about the malt forward description, but it reads as less malty to me than Boogie Monster. The Donkey Venom is my favorite of these releases. Closer in sourness level to the first batch than the second. Now, I just nee...

Re: Moo Brouhahah

I just picked up a three-pound Porterhouse for $50, that's naturally-raised and decently marbled with a nice chunk of tenderloin on the one side of it. Beef prices have gone a bit haywire on cuts like Bavette and Flank, those used to be 'off cut' prices, about five a pound. (Gonna grill sear then i...

Re: Burdock Brewing

The Fresh Hop Pale Ale is enjoyable. Agreed. However, nothing incredible either. I would just as well drink GLB Canuck then have to go out of my way to get this again. Looking forward to trying other beers they put out though. I think this brewery has some nice potential. The fresh hop pale ale has...

Lost Craft Beer: Anyone know anything

So, I just saw this BlogTO article on a new "brewery", Lost Craft Beer. Seems they've updated it to add that they're brewing out of Cool's. http://www.blogto.com/eat_drink/2015/11/torontos_newest_craft_beer_company_worthy_of_drake/ It's unusual to hear about something like this through Blo...

Re: LCBO Winter craft beer release 2015

Yeah, Town Crier is even worse than BierMarkt and Rhino used to be. Bottle roulette where you need to have at least four choices lined up to actually get what you want. If you are going to stock that many beers design a menu that can be easily updated. Then actually update it. I know we're getting ...

Re: Bellwoods Brewery

Donkey Venom on sale Friday at 11 AM. $10/bottle. Just over 3,000 bottles. No limit specified. Curious to see what this batch is like. The first couple batches were super sour. The last batch was less so. And I would like to award a gold star to BakaGaijin for having the closest (although still way ...

Re: LCBO Winter craft beer release 2015

I appreciate the info, although I'm never going to Bier Markt for lunch again. Two crummy sample sets + two pretty miserable burgers, for over a hundred bucks with tip? They even screwed up samples / put in substitutions, utterly pathetic bottom-feeding institution IMLE. Damn, that's expensive! How...

Re: FT: Grendel's Revenge ISO: Bellwoods sours OBO

Hey all. I have some extra bottles of the Indie Alehouse 3 year anniversary release, Grendel's Revenge. They are big 750ml bottles that are taking up too much room in my fridge. I'm looking to score a Bellwoods Motley Cru '15, Barn Owl 1 or No Rest for the Wicked. If you don't have any of those and...
