Re: Coming Soon to the LCBO

Pink Fuzz actually came to Toronto twice. First time was a single case to Yonge & Eglinton early in the year, that went in 2-3 days. Second time I picked it up from King & Spadina or Summerhill I believe, in mid-April. About a week or so ago I was at Summerhill and saw an employee go in bac...

Not everywhere, just Ottawa area like Pink Fuzz.

Re: Birreria Volo

I had to take a pic of the food menu for Google Translate so I could figure out what I was ordering (gotta love technology) but it looks like it didn't save it. This is the only other one I have, of the oxbow bottles and a couple others: http://i.imgur.com/MZTj9CP.png Prices for food seemed on par f...

Re: Birreria Volo

Went there the other week and enjoyed a whole bunch of the 3 and 6 oz pours. Unfortunately they had an issue splitting our bill which was a bit annoying, but it had only opened recently so hopefully that issue has been fixed by now. I quite enjoyed the fried chicken sandwich, though I was annoyed th...

Yeah I remember trying that when it came out and it tasted like drinking a cup full of flowers and soap.

Re: Bellwoods Brewery

Didn't see any social media announcements but Bellwoods has 2 new beers in the shop - Mango IPA and Sour Petite Saison. They are $5.50 and $5, respectively. Edit: Just tried them myself. The Sour Petite Saison is very light, not overly sour but easy drinking. The Mango IPA is very juicy (citra hops?...

I'm not so worried. The parks behind Volo already have a plethora of sketchy people doing drugs and stealing bikes and whatnot.

Re: Bellwoods Brewery

Had one on Friday, and it was quite delicious. Not sour, but good and tart, and the currant flavour was light and not overpowering. Overall a very solid brew, especially at 7.5%.

Re: Bellwoods Brewery

The current Monogamy Simcoe release is drinking very well. It's so incredibly fresh with a nose that is incredibly floral. I didn't actually know Simcoe hops could be this impressive. The one in the bottle shop at the moment is Mosaic, no? https://www.instagram.com/p/BJBRHzygWDE/?taken-by=bellwoods...

Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

Mildly surprised 5 Paddles went with Home Sweet Home in the LCBO instead of In Your Face. Maybe they didn't want to get lost in a sea of other IPAs, but I don't think that would have happened considering the flashiness of the label, and the quality of the beer. Maybe they were worried about the LCB...

Re: What're you Bellwoodsing right now?

Glad to see these holding up well. I've been toying with the idea of opening a 2013 motley cru. And that saison sounds fantastic. Having just had one recently, I say go for it. I had a bottle of it ages ago and it's nice and sweet like a good belgian quad but missing most of that sour taste that wa...

Re: Bellwoods Brewery

Jelly King (regular version I assume) is coming back to the bottle shop next week. Donkey Venom is making a comeback very soon ("early in the month.") Barn Owl 4 set to make an appearance before the end of the month. Looks like 2649 bottles available of that one. http://i.imgur.com/Qc4QOpS...

Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

Home Sweet Home was one of my least favourite offerings from 5 Paddles, the vanilla flavour was really overpowering and tasted like fake vanilla flavouring. Bleh.
