Re: Fuller’s sold to Asahi

I'm not thrilled about this, but as far as I can tell Pilsner Urquell has maintained its integrity/quality, so let's hope we see the same outcome with Fuller's. Reading the article it sounds like they have negotiated a guarantee to continue operating and brewing at the Griffin facility, but no spec...

Re: Fuller’s sold to Asahi

So,the two takeaways I got from this article is that Fullers would prefer to be a hospitality brand (because they can't find a way to do all that well in brewing) and that Asahi now also owns Pilsner Urquell, which was a surprise to me. I can't say I'm all that sentimental about this. Sure your bre...

Re: Muddy York Brewing

When I first tried the Gaslight Helles, I was very disappointed, It was under lagered and had a good hit of DMS. I really want to see more locals offer this style, but they do need to get it right to. That's why I was disappointed, it sucked. I picked up a few cans this weekend to give them another ...

Re: Collective Arts

I was just ruminating, where is the big fancy LCBO at Bloor and Bathurst? Not a wealthy enough area? For a statist monopoly it sure has limited locations and limits what it sells very unreasonably at locations that would support better. Why is there ONE LCBO on Queen between Coxwell and the DVP, an...

Re: Collective Arts

A funny thing happened. I picked up a couple cans of #7 as a treat from the LCBO. When I was at the checkout, the person kept scanning and re scanning the can. Then tried to type the information in manually. Eventually she looked at me and said "This doesn't seem right. Is this really $4.95? It...

Re: Collective Arts

IPA No. 8 is out https://collectiveartsbrewing.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/11/IPA8_900x900_IG_001.png WTF? I looked for #7 everywhere and was happy to finally try it just the other day when a friend brought me a couple (and glad he did, it was good). Are they just dedicated to cranking out somethin...

Nice!

I am so often cynical about corporate or celebrity fundraising drives as they so often just become marketing stunts, but this is pretty impressive. Especially when you see the huge roster that has signed on. https://www.sierranevada.com/resilience-butte-county-proud-ipa Almost all microbreweries I h...

Re: Collective Arts

new core beer drops tomorrow. it's similar to IPA No. 5 recipe. https://i.imgur.com/SFBtxUT.jpg Whaaah? Can't find #7 in any eLBOw stores. This might just be a good consolation prize... Though, typically I find Columbus a bit vegetal for me, but I'll hold off on judgement until I try this.

Re: Worst Ontario Craft Breweries

Brick, Niagara College, etc. have crappy releases but Trafalgar is a special kind of TIRE FIRE hehe I'll give Niagara College a ton of slack, because they are, after all, an experimental facility. I don't think anybody should be misled into thinking they are a production brewery. Instead, we should...

Re: Worst Ontario Craft Breweries

As for those attempting (or pretending to) make beer. I think Henderson's is the biggest disappointment for me. For all the investment and community hoopla, the beer (or the one's I have had) are just meh. Was there community hoopla for Henderson other than their own promotion? I don't think I have...

Re: Worst Ontario Craft Breweries

Talk about opening a beer can of worms. There really is a quantity over quality thing going on in the Ontario scene, so just out of the sheer requirement to remember what we've been disappointed in I think we need all members of this forum to assist. I'll recuse myself of commenting on any brewers m...

Re: What're you drinking right now?

What were your thoughts on the LA Mikeller location as far as prices? I was blown away by how expensive the beer was at the San Francisco location a few years ago. One of their standard IPAs was almost $12 US for a 10 oz pour. Everything on tap was crazy expensive. It had to be one of the most over ...

Well this is interesting

I definitely would never have thought hops could be a fermentable. Fascinating. Sadly, the article never lives up to it's title by offering an answer to the question posed.
