Looking forward to seeing this back! I stocked up when Celebrator was de-listed - nice to know I don't have to be overly concerned with saving the last couple of remaining bottles.

Re: Chester's Beers Of The World - Hamilton, ON

Made it out to Chester's this weekend for one final trip before they change ownership. They are indeed offering a 2 for 1 deal on bottles (with the caveat that you must purchase two of the same bottle to get the discount - it works well if you go with a group and can each grab a couple of bottles to...

Re: What're you drinking right now?

Right now: Montegioco Demon Hunter (one of the bottles that survived the flight home from Italy). A complex strong amber ale. Some peppery spice notes upfront before the caramel malt flavours emerge - sweet (without being cloying), though not particularly fruity. Pleasant dry finish with a touch of ...

Re: What're you drinking right now?

I was in Italy a month ago. "Craft" seems to be perceived as saison's and farmhouse ales. All unfiltered and since I'm not a saison fan, all uninspiring to me. Looked for pale ale, saw one reference to an IPA near Canelli but couldn't get my hands on it. I would agree that saison/farmhous...

Re: Chester's Beers Of The World - Hamilton, ON

I, for one, am a little sad to hear that Chester's is changing ownership. It was certainly an oddball when compared to most beer specialty bars in Southern Ontario, but it is precisely for this reason that Chester's is unique. Yes, the décor is horribly outdated but for me, that's just part of the c...

Re: What're you drinking right now?

When were you last in Italy, Belgian? The craft beer (or "birra artigianale") movement in Italy has picked up a lot of momentum recently! I'm hoping to create/update the "Local Beer Guides" for the benefit of those planning a trip.

Re: LCBO Autumn & Halloween/Oktoberfest Beer Releases 2015

Looking forward to seeing the Scaldis Amber in Ontario, though when I've had it in Europe (marketed as Bush) or even in Quebec I thought it was closer to 12% ABV than 10%.
