I had this on tap at The Monk's Kettle, during Toronto Beer Week. While I found it a little too sweet for my tastes, I still found it very enjoyable. Medium bodied & full-flavoured, nutty, and fruity. The figs /dates came through in the aftertaste. A very well-made beer; If it wasn't for the swe...

Amherst Marriott

Stayed at the Buffalo Marriott at Millersport / Maple & the I-290 this weekend. Paid $66+ on a Priceline Express Deal ( no bidding ). This 3 1/2 star hotel can usually be had for a reasonable price on Priceline. Right next door is Santora's Pizza, with a pretty good selection of craft beer, with...

Finishing up a week in Philly. What a beer town!! So many bars with great tap lists; and to make it even better, the lists are all quite different ( with the exception of the locals-Yards, etc ) A great effort to bring in interesting beers from all over is very evident here. I stayed at 18th & M...

Hops and Robbers

Interesting to read the Best Bitter comparisons. For those of you who have visited Pepperwood's Bistro in Burlington in the past: You should recognize this beer ( as I recall ) as the Pepperwood's Dry-hopped Best Bitter. Paul Dickey, brewer of Hops and Robbers, was the brewmaster at Pepperwood's a f...

Cleveland

I was in Cleveland in the summer. Fathead's in North Olmsted, ( Lorain Rd ) near Hopkins Int'l Airport is a must-visit. Headhunter IPA is their top beer and is outstanding, with many more. Downtown, Superior & Prospect, near Progressive Field, are the Winking Lizard and right next door, City Tap...

Buffalo Wild Wings-Meadowvale

The new Buffalo Wild Wings, on Winston Churchill, just south of the 401 is very close for you. They have a few craft taps- King Vienna Lager, Barking Squirrel, Steam Whistle, Sam Adams.
