Re: Free trade?

Lotsa fluff in that article. I'm pretty sure Ontario brewers pay the lab fees too. The meat of the complaint must be this: In his letter to Ontario Trade Minister Todd Smith, Bilous complains that Ontario gives local brewers access to stores over Alberta brewers, gives Ontario beverages preferential...

Re: Uncorked-Wine and Spirits Appreciation

But I was curious about this one: http://www.vintages.com/lcbo-ear/vintag ... ber=618991

Or if you want to go really fancy, there's an Orphan Barrel in the LCBO right now, but it's really pricey.

The answer is always more Weller.

Re: Collective Arts

Flying monkeys chocolate manifesto, for example, used to always be a 750 bottle, but now is in cans. Nope! was at the BO yesterday and, unless the bottles were from last year (difficult to tell with no dates), they are in fact 473ml bottles . (went down to the basement to double check size of last ...

Re: Ontario Beverage Network

Wowza. I've met Chris a handful of times and he always seemed like a great guy. I guess you never can tell.

Re: Collective Arts

I was in the BO the other day and I was surprised at how much stuff has made the transition to cans. Like forget craft IPAs, I got a can of Paulaner doppelbock. Even the seasonal premium beers are moving to cans. Flying monkeys chocolate manifesto, for example, used to always be a 750 bottle, but no...

Re: Anyone Brewing Something Special for the Holiday's?

Great lakes makes a winter ale.

Nickel Brook has Cuvee, which I don't think it's really a Christmas beer but they normally release it over the holidays, I think.

Black Oak releases Nutcracker (cinnamon) Porter every year.

Plus I'm sure there will be lots of one offs and such if you dig around.

Re: What're you drinking right now?

Different varieties get harvested at slightly different times but... September? Maybe early October, at the latest.

Re: What're you drinking right now?

Surely that beer is a little past prime now? Wet hop beers age especially poorly and the hop harvest was a while ago.

Re: Winter Seasonal Craft Beer Release 2018/19

Nice list, looking forward to Traquair Jacobite Ale and Oskar Blues Hot Box Coffee Porter. Insel Kreide could be a good one for the holidays. From the north German brewer: "A seductive beer for festive occasions: brewed with chalky water and fermented with Bière Brut yeast. Delicate fruity bou...

Re: Black Lab Brewery opening in East Toronto this fall

I got a bottle of the sour because it was full and I didn't feel like waiting. There's a comical amount of sediment in the bottle.

Early days, I'm sure they'll clean some of that stuff up. I was actually pretty surprised they had a sour on day 1.

Re: Cask Days 2018

I was pretty vicious in culling my list and I'm down to 24. I guess I hope that some of them get tapped before I get to them so I don't die?
