Re: 2020 Summer Ontario Craft Beers & Imports at the LCBO

I'll give them a pass because of the pandemic — but this list stinks.

I will be greedily grabbing Hopsinjoor if I see it. And I've picked up a case of Harviestoun Bitter & Twisted when I saw it marked down at my local.

Re: Cigar City Marshal Zhukov Russian Imperial Stout

I debated keeping this to myself until I can make it back to the store: Marshal Zhukov has been reduced to $15 (even online), but it scans for a rock-bottom $10 at Summerhill LCBO. Yeti is marked down to $9 at the same store. I love having big bottles of big stouts on hand. Update: looks like Marsha...

Re: What're you drinking right now?

Great Lakes Krispy Clear — Really unique flavour almost a lemony-melon, gose-like tartness... very subtle and super fresh today. Great for a light lager.

Yes, and it’s not mind blowing. The cask mouthfeel is the main draw for me. I’m planning on grabbing more when I can.

Re: Ontario will allow restaurants to sell takeout liquor, wine and beer

It was quite a joy riding around the city this weekend and seeing all the sandwich boards offering beer deals to go.

Re: What're you drinking right now?

Harviestoun Bitter & Twisted — Lovely soft mouthfeel on this, very close to a cask experience. Solid British golden ale. Very sessionable, 330 ml is just not enough, so buy extra.

Re: Coming Soon to the LCBO

Cans are fine but I just hope they didn't mess with the size format. Cause I swear, Aventinus 500ml bottle has been a regular of mine for many years and I consider it to be one of the finest value/taste beers at the BO. I agree and I don't see that changing. This brewery (and Germany as a whole) ha...

Re: Godspeed Brewery

Fingers crossed that it tastes like Péché Mortel - Bourbon. Am I setting my expectations too high? :lol: I think so, this ain’t a cheater beer loaded with coffee. However it is delicious, quite smokey and complex with oak, vanilla, cola, fruity flavours all over. Godspeed made a lager version of Pe...

Re: Godspeed Brewery

Godspeed just released its first barrel aged beer. I've got high hopes and a shipment on its way.

Re: What're you drinking right now?

Jolly Pumpkin Oro de Calabaza — Three years resting in the bottle and it's lovely: bright, dry, funky, with some lemon character and gives me vivid Orval flashbacks. The 8% abv is invisible until you get to the end of the bottle. Glad I swiped a few of these when LCBO was discounting them.

Re: LCBO Online Exclusives

Aventinus Vintage (4 Years Aged) just popped up. I wonder if this is barrel aged just some musty bottles.

Good point, I guess I was thinking specifically of Thrust! which I recall very fondly. I do also like the recent hazy iteration.

Re: Modern trends

Oh, on the sweetness note. I think it's a good point that this does make for relatively accessible beer, that might appeal to many who are used to mixers, wine, coolers, ciders, etc. This can't be understated, and consequently the stuff flies off shelves. Anecdotally, I remember trying to introduce...
