I have been to their Old Montreal location a couple of times. I didn't realize they were a chain, but it always felt like they were. The product seemed like a Gordon Biersch knock off (not the best place to start), but compared to all the Stella outlets in the neighbourhood, it was acceptable. I did...

Re: Great Lakes Devil's Pale Ale

[quote="GregClow] Well, I tried it yesterday as well, and I gotta say that I wasn't quite as impressed as the person who started this thread. It's certainly better than the rest of the Great Lakes line-up, and it's flavourful and well-balanced, but it seemed a little subdued to me, especially for a ...

Great Lakes Devil's Pale Ale

Just got back from the Toronto Beer Festival. I forgot what it was like to go to a frat-boy tailgate party... :roll:

Anyway, I tried the Great Lakes 666 (a few times in fact). Great beer. I vote for it to go into regular production, PLEASE!

Rob, I'm pretty new here so I never know if I'm stirring the pot of a brewmaster or proprietor. Nice to see you pay attention. Could you comment on the Special Draft? What were you guys trying to create with that one? I'm not trying to pick it apart, but I'm curious about the nose. Also, I'm in mid ...

F&M Brewery

I'm sure many of you are fans of F&M so this may be old news to you. I have always liked thier StoneHammer Plsner and have really warmed up to MacLeans Pale Ale when I find it around town on tap (cask of course!) I had heard it was worth a visit to their store to see what else they have. Today I...

hmmm. I hope I haven't picked a fight with a Belgian over beer. :lol: Actually, I totally agree with you. I typically find the NYT reviews sprinkled with one or two deep thoughts, but mostly written to inspire their readers to try something new in a risk free way. Not hardcore, but still a useful mi...

NY Times article on Wheat Beers

The NY Times published an article today on wheat beers. While mostly introductiory, the reviews/tasting video that accompanied it on the website has some good comments on 'American style' wheats. I've generally not been big on wheat beers, but the variety and splintering of styles is promising; new ...

I missed the Dogfish IPA, but have had many opportunities to load up on Warka, Baltika, Okocim, Zyweic, Zubr, Zlatrog (sp?) among others. We kid ourselves if we think the LCBO will listen. I know plenty of people who buy Saku (it may be my nationality, but don't take this as an endorsement to drink...

All good suggestions. Might I suggest making some connections/friendships with brewers closer to you? I'm, not familiar with London area micros, but the KW&G region is overflowing with some good ones as a start. Don't be afraid to stretch the style boundries. If you are introducing new flavours ...

I have to say, I have always loved the connection between beer and Ontario history. This story is no less fascinating!

Does anybody know anything more about the village of Pucky Huddle? What a great name! A couple quick searches didn't turn up much on the history of this place.

Reminds me of those sad Gretzky (or Godsky to some fools) Esso ads from a few years ago.

Not 'cheetah' but 'tiger"... :roll:
