Re: Big Pint

The ten dollar per pint barrier is looming in downtown Toronto. Several places, I have found, are twisting themselves into contortions to avoid it (shrinking glassware, anyone?) But I think it is coming soon. You're right, the bastards cant hide it. 8) Do the math and some bars charge the per-pint ...

Re: Amsterdam Barrel House

I've had some co-workers go at lunch and said it was some of the worst food they've had in a while. The pulled pork was super dry and beer is quite expensive for having their own taps. Bummed as I had high hopes for this place. I sure hope they didn't repeat the mistake they made at harbourfront an...

Re: Changing tastes...

Great topic! I've thought about this a bit in the last while too. Here are some random inputs. I still love my IPA's and hoppy beers, but have largely gravitated to brighter and dryer styles. I definitely prefer a great aroma (late hop) over a bitter, which I used to prefer and before that preferred...

Re: Godspeed Brewery

What if they aged it more? Kellerbier is meant to be well-aged, I wonder how the cans would hold up if I kept a few for half a year. I brew my own Kellerbier in Feb/March and lager it in kegs until summer. I add some oak chips, as this style was historically kept in oak casks. I lager at basement t...

Octoberfest/Marzan

I am surprised not so see any Octoberfest beers from local brewers on offer at my local LCBO. I would expect at least a few to be out by now. I fear the LCBO will go straight from summer releases to it's shelves being polluted with pumpkin spice. Has anybody seen any local offerings? Could it be tha...

Re: Godspeed Brewery

I had their Kellerbier at Bar Hop last night. I was a little disappointed. I found it too hoppy and heavy bodied for the style. Or perhaps just the wrong hops. I hope they continue to tune this one up. It's a beer I would like to enjoy and it follows their stated goal of making nice modest styles of...

Beer cocktail recipes

I have seen this discussed here before, I might have even participated, but a search didn't seem to work. Personally, I'm not a big fan of adulterated beer, but I do know there are beer based cocktail recipes out there, and they can't all be bad... Many years back I was served a Duval and gin concoc...

Re: Growlers at TBS

I expect them to start offering delivery to your door pretty soon. Once they're sufficiently desperate. I couldn't care less about delivery. If they really wanted to be relevant to me, come pick up my empties. It's time to break the "recycling" monopoly and have return kiosks conveniently...

Growlers at TBS

I find this kind of funny. Especially the selection. Most of those beers should just be sold in bags like wine or milk.

Stupid slang name. Their first beers will be:

Whiny Boy
My fingers in your face
Got shot outside the taproom

Re: Godspeed Brewery

Good news.

Hopefully they will soon have enough time to get a real website. Leaving your marketing in the hands of fleecebook is just foolish. Sure, have a presence, but don't be dependent on somebody elses profit motive. :rant

Re: OCB Week came and went and Bar Towel had nothing to say about it

I did give OCB a quick thought, but was out of town anyway. Frankly (and those people who know me will think this is a totally crazy thing to say) I just can't drink enough to justify the cost and hassle of going to things like Sessions or even Cask Days. Been there, done that. I much prefer smaller...
