Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

more stone IPA popping up at a few lcbos.. biegaman: is this beer back? Or is this old stock? Very old code. Apparently the Ottawa warehouse lost them back in the fall, found them while doing their year-end count and forced them out. We called them right away and asked them to take them off the she...

Red White and Brews - The Only Cafe

The Only Cafe is doing an American tap takeover on Saturday April 23rd. From what I understand they'll have every American craft beer currently available on draft.

Re: Which LCBO Beers Do You Miss The Most?

What's the deal with De Koninck at the three places Orval_Al? It's been forever since it's been available and it's never been taken off the menu. Inventory for De Koninck has always been available. If it wasn't in stock it's because the owner wasn't ordering it. Last time I went to Town Crier they ...

Re: Stone City Ales in Kingston

Had their Layla Pinot Noir Brett Sour tonight... incredible stuff. One of the best sours in recent memory. Can definitely stand up to those south of the border. Find it. Buy it.

Re: Which LCBO Beers Do You Miss The Most?

It's not uncommon or improper for Witbier to have some tartness. "Sour" would be a defect, but a tangy, tart taste is definitely acceptable for the style, desirable if you ask me. For what it's worth I've always found Unibroue to be an incredibly consistent brewery.

Re: The Blue Monk to close :(

AH man, super bummed out. But it would upset me way more if Coles ever closed. That has been my home away from home for a decade.

So until the brewery and new bar open I guess Mike's down to only 6 spots: Coles, Brennan's, Liberty Hound, Roux Cafe, Moor Pat, and Allen Burger Venture.

Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

Some clarification re: Stone Delicious IPA... Stone decided on an IPA using two then fairly new hop varietals, Lemondrop and El Dorado, which they loved for their ultra-bright citrus qualities. Batches kept coming out cloudy so they called White Labs who gave them an enzyme to help clarify the beer....

Re: Murphy's Law, Queen East & Kingston Road

If I'm not mistaken this is owned by FAB Restaurants (formerly FAB Concepts), same people behind the new Dominion Pub, Against the Grain, Pourhouse, etc. It's a corporate model so my guess is we can expect something along the lines of (if not identical to) Dominion and ATG.

Yes. Not traditionally sold outside the monastery, at least not until recently. 4.8% blonde ale.

Re: GTA Coffee

...(if only some Ontario brewers did this with their crappy beer) Sorry, not coffee related but... The amount of "off" Ontario craft beer I've been served over the last year is shameful. I think the main issue is inexperience, whether it's the people making the beer or those serving/selli...
