Re: Brunswick Bierworks

A business being able to attract investment, and being an attractive investment aren't necessarily the same thing. see Constellation Brands buying Ballast Point for $1BILLION and selling a few years later for $40 Million :o (rich people with big egos tend to think they're smarter than anyone else. ...

Rhino clearout

Word has it The Rhino is doing a big sell off of beers in their treasured cellar. Supposedly great deals. I don't see anything on their website about it and I'm too far away to check it out. If you are nearby, it might be worth looking in.

Re: Shelton Brothers cease operations

Is this the new Beer Lover Magazine I've been hearing so much about? Apparently they were handing out free copies all over the place this summer. :wink:

Re: Collective Arts

I generally like this series, but they did lose me with a bunch. I think they were #6 to #12. Fruit and lactose additions just don't appeal to me.
#15 is drinking nice.

Muskoka Brewery

First of all, I was surprised to find there hasn't been a thread for Muskoka here. It's amazing how spoiled for choice we have become! You'd think someone would have had something to say about Muskoka in all these years. Perhaps they should have released a fried chicken sour to get on our radar. /s ...

Re: Spending/Drinking More or Less on Beer during Pandemic?

Haha, I was trained by my father-in-law in the art of barbecuing , the food is ready when the 3rd bee r is consumed! Of course beer in those days was only 4.5%, but then one day I brought over a new beer, Bra D'or, 6% abv, it was pretty funny! Yes Collective Arts IPA #14!. That Flying Dog is excell...

Honey, those are perfect grill marks! But why are they on your face?

By CA #14, I assume you mean Collective Arts IPA #14. If so, good buy. It's really good.

Great Lakes Burst

Strange, while it has some bitterness, I can't taste or smell any hops. Strange indeed for a NEPA. Maybe I should go get a COVID test.

Re: Spending/Drinking More or Less on Beer during Pandemic?

Sad thing. I actually don't know! I mostly drink my own homebrew, and I am brewing more often, but I'm also sharing more. I couldn't really tell you if more is going in me or to my friends/family. I'm definitely low on supplies. I'm kind of embarrassed to admit that I haven't kept proper track of my...

Re: Worst Ontario Craft Breweries

Not Ontario but Parallel 49 is being cancelled right now due to staff treatment by owners and management. Has anyone seen the notourp49 Instagram and their response? Wow, this is sad in so many ways. First of all, what's the point of being a jackass? (if the accusations are true) I mean, running a ...

Re: Flora Hall

That and unlike regular litter there's actually a benefit since many people collect empties as a source of cash. Having spent time at Bellwoods back in the day I can tell you some of those people are pretty much professional collectors. I recall back in the 1980s having a friend who lived right by ...

Re: Flora Hall

I saw this in the media too. The first thing that crossed my mind was, well, now I've heard of Flora Hall. :wink:

It is a good idea though. The few brewers left that use bottles instead of cans aside, how much more litter cam this cause than all the other junk food wrappers and coffee cups?

Re: Modern trends

I could definitely see that being the case. Granted even before covid I'd always keep a healthy stock of easy drinking beers on hand, but like you I rarely order them when I go out for drinks- I'm more likely to try something different/more adventurous. There does seem to be a correlation with lock...

Re: Modern trends

I know the light lager trend has been brewing (sorry) for a while, and is part of chasing a session market, including radlers and hard sodas (spritzers?). But I wonder how much is influenced by the closing of bars. I can see people choosing packaged alcohol on the basis of when and where they are go...
