Headstock IPA

The current batch of Headstock IPA, canned on October 2, 2013 may be the best this this beer has ever tasted ( and smelled )
I got mine at the brewery, but some Burlington LCBOs have it.

This beer has come a long way; In my opinion, it's one of the best IPAs we have in Ontario right now.

new Oakville location

They are now open on the Oakville-Mississauga border, in the theatre complex at the QEW and Winston Churchill Blvd ( at the LA Fitness end ) It's a very nice looking place, with a patio. The food menu is quite extensive. There were 2 new beers ( to me ), an IPA and an Amber ( called La Belle Provinc...

I made it to the Griffin Pub in Bracebridge on Saturday. Enjoyed a couple of Sawdust City's Pale Wheat. Food was good, too. That evening, they were having a parking lot party ( as they do every Saturday of a long weekend ) with a great variety of craft beers from all over Ontario. They served from s...

Muskoka Mad Tom: I had this on draft yesterday at the Muskoka Highlands Golf Club, in Bracebridge. It was fantastic. The $5.25 price tag for the pint added to the enjoyment. Picked up some cans of Mad Tom in Bracebridge, with an 'enjoy before' date of 03 Nov 13 . It's not in the same league. Very di...

Beware the price of the cask beer; $8.50+ Yesterday, it was Johnny Simcoe, and it was a far cry from the cans from the brewery and the draft at Bryden's. On a positive note, my pint of RPA was $6.50+ By the way, in the same plaza is a Longo's and their wine / craft beer bar, 'Corks'. Nice selection ...

I visited the Liberty Taproom and For What it's Worth on my last visit.
Thought they were both great.

Can't go wrong with Mellow Mushroom

I can vouch for Local. They have Hops & Robbers and Crazy Canuck on tap, plus a few other OK options. They plan on adding to their craft taps. It is the former Turtle Jack's and has a very nice interior; the bar area is great, with lots of large TVs. Fairview, between Appleby & Walkers. ( ne...

Can we expand on this a bit? Where are the craft beer bars north of the 401, in the GTA? I was at Yonge & Steeles last Saturday afternoon, for a bridge game, and was wondering where we could go for a good beer afterwards. We ended up going to the Twisted Kilt, at Davisville. ( I see that 'Stack'...
