I'm just polishing one off now after scooping the last 4 on the shelf at Brock St. in Parkdale (sorry Greg!) and introducing it to my brother. But besides the Engine Oil, my God what a piss-poor beer selection. Tons of Euro-lagers, and nothing but a few micro selections. I really hope they take note...

Echoing Jon's comments, when Brooklyn Lager hit the shelves I bought it religiously and drank it in my local (The Rhino) until friends started asking about it, then drinking it themselves. Quite often we've cleaned out The Rhino's supply and now I see it in the fridges of several friends.

I had a few pints at C'est What last week and was equally impressed. Chalk up another one for Neustadt.

I can see your point from a business perspective, however, if I see all 3 in a store, I'm buying all 3. 2 out of 3, 1 out of 3, doesn't matter. Sure, I'm only one person, but I buy a lot of beer and so do my friends. And realistically, how likely is it that all 3 will be on the shelves at any given ...

CABA

I went to the CABA shindig upstairs at The Rhino last night. Nice affair, some excellent homebrews. There seemed to be an emphasis on Porters, including an intriguing Black Pepper Porter. The speaker was Marvin Dyck from Wellington. The real news to me of the evening was the flat-out admission that ...

cooper st.

This may be old news already but I was at Cooper St. today and the Old Engine was there (maybe 15 bottles on display), as well as the whole Neustadt lineup, and nicely chilled too. I depleted the Scottish Pale Ale supply.

"Entertaining is a hunger I need to satisfy," he (Frank) says. "Even when I first got started, I figured, why should I pay someone to write and sing a jingle when I can do it? It's not that I need people to clap because I am insecure or any of that psychological crap." Yeah right...

Yeah, I had 1 pint. Quite interesting - very flavourful, kind of heavy, buttery feel in the mouth. 4.8% I believe. Not the kind of thing I could drink all night though.

Beer Sightings

Last night I was bellyaching to one of the lovely bartenders at The Rhino (1249 Queen W.) because the cask beer was still out, the Hockley Dark ran out and they hadn't changed their taps for awhile. I was wrong, they do have a new one - Fullers Old Winter Ale, which I've never seen before. The Rhino...

Jesse - better get used to the solo experience if you are seeking out craft beers. It took me years to drag my friends out of psuedo-Irish pubs and get them C'est What, Volo etc., but until they did I made it a habit of going by myself and still do. I love reading, so a book and pints have been my m...
