Barrel Aged Rat Queen.
It's quite good and should get better with age.

Interesting...well, good for them!
I do miss their root beer.

Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

Congrats to all the early buyers, especially those who got it cheap!
If it keeps popping up I suppose I'll have to go on the hunt, but I'm hoping most will wait until the official release before they sell it.

Re: Bellwoods Brewery

The BOYD glass didn't tickle my fancy, but this Skeleton Key one does! Doing a cull of beer glasses again, trying to keep my collection to under 100 glasses, gets harder every year to remove older ones! As a workaround I've begun collecting taster and sampler glasses instead, which I don't count tow...

Re: Founder CBS

Had the 2011 on tap, but not in bottles....but ya, it was the best bourbon-maple aged beer I've tried.
Any left at the LCBO you went to?? :D

Cool to know...although my boxes were just paper and cardboard waste, which I left at the LCBO pick up store for them to deal with.

Re: LCBO Online Exclusives

Ya,
Their packaging is pretty wasteful....even if you do in-store pickups of your onlien orders.
Last time I grabbed mine, it was a HUGE box, with 5 small beers in it. They guy at the store even commented that they pack these orders up kind of crazily.

Re: So is $3.75 for a 355ml can the new norm in east Toronto?

Seems a bit pricey...depends on the type of beer I guess though.
If it is their core beers like Eephus or Maris, that is considerably higher than their 650ml bottle prices / ml.

Re: Lansdowne Brewery

Too bad. I always enjoyed stopping in there, even though they never really had their own beers.

Re: Witchstock

Couldn't help but notice almost no one getting samples at Godspeed. Their offerings definitely looked like "plain vanilla" at this event. I'd argue it's more a case of it being local. Why get something that's going to be available all week at the brewpub when there is stuff rarely availab...

Love that I can get a beer on Friday that was canned on Wednesday!


Just had a can myself...it really is a tasty beer! One of my favourite hoppy Toronto beers.

Re: Zwanze

I bought a ticket but can't seem to find any sort of confirmation email. Maybe it went to spam....hmmm.
Im going to miss Cask days this year and have skipped a lot of other events, so I don't mind the exaggerated price for the Zwanze taste.

Re: Witchstock

I can only make it to 1 of the sessions, so will be selling 1 ticket closer to the date.
I'll post it on here first for the BT crowd when I know which session I can't make it to....won't know until a few days before the event.

Re: Godspeed Brewery

All in all I quite liked it and I'm a bit puzzled by the negativity, especially from those who were its biggest proponents before it opened. People convinced themselves that this place was going to be DDC Ontario right off the bat, which I don't believe was ever his intention. FWIW The Dort has bec...
