"If you serve any yellow liquid at that temperature you could probably drink it," said Camra's spokesman Iain Loe."

Now thats funny! (and correct)
10 million pounds to develop this "yellow liquid"? Thats frustrating to me.

"My buddy's girlfriend wonders why there are are not more cider companies in Ontario considering that Ontario grows a lot of apples" Are there any cider makers in Ontario? I've tasted and enjoyed non-alcoholic apple cider at farm makets, (St Jacobs, etc) I'd really like to try a fresh hard cider. I'...

I just got back from a great trip to Halifax. Sadly "John Shippey's" brewery is indeed dead. My brother and I sampled the Keefe's Stout at "Gingers", was very nice. The "Rogue's Roost" didn't have stout of any kind on tap (they may have had Guinness, I can't remember) but there was an excellant brow...

"That'll be pretty tough to do, since Shippey's closed down almost a year ago... " My brother was told by a guy at the former John Shippey's location that they would be re-opening in June. We'll run by and check it out. I'll report back :wink: Keefe"s Irish Stout? Sounds like my kind of stuff. I'll ...

[/quote]Since you're in NL, Halifax is much closer - and has both of those available. The Chocolate Stout doesn't last long on the shelves (at Premier Wine and Spirits) though.

Rogue Chocolate Stout and Chimay? Now you have my mouth watering!
I have been searching for more bottles of those on all my travels. The Chimay Ales seem to be more common than the Rogue products. I may have to fly to Oregon :)

Micheal Jackson's "Beer Companion" is the book that started my interest in better beers, and got me dreaming of going to Belgium, England, Germany etc.

I'll have to have a look for that McAuslan Scotch Ale. Thanks for the generous offer Ian, but I don't have anything to trade. I would be happy to bring up a couple bottles of Propeller Porter if you would like to try that. Its not as exotic as some of those you have in your celler. I saw "Samichlaus...
