Re: Collective Arts

Two new collabs from these guys in a week! Found 3 other people to go in on a group buy with and split up the costs so I’ll be able to just commit to one or two of each instead of the whole 4-Pack https://collectiveartsbrewing.com/beers/ultra-soft/ https://collectiveartsbrewing.com/beers/tropical-d...

Re: Modern trends

Which lagers are worth seeking out right now Sean. I also ordered a 4 of Ice Cold Beer to try Well definitely Godspeed as established now. From what I see on their shop right now I'd highly recommend the Otsukaresama dortmunder, it's excellent. Can't go wrong with any of their stuff, but since we'r...

Re: Modern trends

The one thing that attracts me to the NE or hazy IPA category is the increased emphasis on hop aroma. I love a good bouquet of new world or surprising hops. The push towards big hop budgets late in hopping (whirlpool or dry), is an attraction to me. I still love bitterness, but the added dimension o...

Re: Modern trends

Pastry stouts are disgusting, and I don’t know anyone who drinks them I think they’re interesting to people like me because we’ve been drinking lagers and Pilsner for decades now, and are chasing loud flavours and noses That's an interesting description. A lot of the"New World" wines are ...

Re: Coronavirus

More importantly, the expensive high quality stuff seems to be marked up the same percentage as the cheap stuff. The LCBO has little incentive to gouge consumers for all they can on premium products. Put these facts together, and you have an environment in the US where cheap beer is more inexpensiv...

Re: Coronavirus

I'd like to clarify, when I suggested culling the herd, it was by no means a slight on the many great breweries we now get to enjoy in Ontario. I totally agree with Belgian that we are now in an era where we no longer need to shop abroad out of desperation for quality. Although, we should still keep...

Re: COVID19 affect on craft brewring industry

Fear on tap as COVID-19 chokes off small brewery sales "Veteran industry observer and beer writer Jordan St. John predicts COVID-19 could break a significant portion of craft brewers. "I would say that you're probably looking at something like a quarter to a third of the craft brewing ind...

Re: What're you drinking right now?

I did another cellar dive and pulled out a 2014 Glutenberg Imperial Sotolon. I recall this being an interesting and nice beer as far as being something directed at a specific dietary audience. I'd say it survived and thrived in the cellar on most points, but wow (ick, gross, yack, puke), did this en...

Re: What're you drinking right now?

I'm scared to go out due to the miasma, so have been mostly hunkered down with home brew. However I did find something interesting in the old survival cellar on Saturday. One last bottle of Central City/Flying Monkeys Red on Red collaboration. I'm glad I bought a bunch back in the day, this really ...

Sorry, couldn't resist. At least it's a great gesture on their part.

Re: Best Traditional ON Craft Brews

I really wish this thread would be longer. Especially with good continental lagers. Too few examples. I'll give a shout out to People's Pint for their Helles. I guess they kind of sort of qualify as a brewery. :wink: If it takes a community hub to make a decent Helles in this province, then I'll jus...

That reminds me, I appreciate Granite for making a dry Irish stout. So rare to get lower ABV stouts here.


Granite's Irish stout is easily my favorite example of this style!
