Re: Big Pint

Bier Markt Esplanade was a travesty in value, service and quality. Truly awful and a rip off. Has it changed since they re-opened with the Goose Island brew pub? The Goose Island side has a distinct design and atmosphere, and even though the two are connected the Goose side is (thankfully) nothing ...

Re: Cask Days 2017

FOBAB in Chicago doesn't release their beer list until you walk in the front door. Last year they had 400 beers. I kind of like the surprise of walking in and exploring, but I understand that people want to target certain beers to try.

Re: are you drinking a lie?

Bump to this thread as it was on my mind and I wanted to post this exact link. Are people bothered by private equity owning brewers the way that they are with large brewery ownership? I'd argue that private equity has a singular focus on making money (and not good beer), which makes them in some way...

Re: 555 Brewing Co. - Picton

Thanks for the update. Footprint won the Best of the Fest at the GTAs on Wednesday and I have to admit I had never heard of them up to that point.

Re: Zwanze

Hard to say if it was legendary. On tap when I was there was also Gueuze, Saint Lamvinus & Vigneronne IIRC. There were also a number of bottles that people were clamouring for (I remember Lou Pepe, as that ran out while I was standing at the bar). Personally I don't think Zwanze needs to be coup...

Re: Saturation? Maverick Brewing

Also, their brewer is Andrew Crowder, ex of Muskoka Brewery. Not sure if that was mentioned here yet.

Re: Saturation? Maverick Brewing

Stopped in this week to record a podcast. Had a sampler flight and all the beer was perfectly fine, but I was a bit distracted interviewing at the same time so will want to give it another go. An impressive space - large interior space, patio fronting on Bathurst, brewery in there and a separated be...

Re: Zwanze

What a time for beer in Toronto when I could just stroll into Volo yesterday at 7pm and walk up to the bar and order a Zwanze. Didn't need to worry about a ticket, didn't need to deal with lineups. And there was 20 more things I wanted to try but only wanted to do a quick stop. We're so flush with g...

Re: Golden Tap Awards 2017

I was really happy with the spread of winners across the province. Merit is an awesome spot and I've been there are couple of times. I haven't been to Arabella but obviously have to make a trip soon. I don't think V&V is a surprising win - I think many brewers prefer the classic, drinkable style...

Brewed in Toronto?


Same thing with Omnipollo I believe. That's the Craft Brand Co. guys - they're contract brewing their repped brands locally at their own brewery.
