Re: Half Hours on Earth

I've got some recent Yalla Yallas as well...always tasty.
Wasn't sure about the cosmic beer, but only had a sample before....will give it a better go and open a can soon.

Re: Burdock Brewing

Barrel 24 was pretty darn good....
They've had the small bottles for some time now I think? But ya, getting a bit pricey at Burdock for even the non-barrled / soured stuff sometimes.

Re: Coming Soon to the LCBO

Very nice! Great Divide I do enjoy...any of the Yeti versions are quite tasty. It would be nice to see some of their other beers return too...been 6-7 (maybe longer?) years since they had their brief appearance in Ontario. Wonder if they're being imported by someone different this time...used to be ...

Any lucky BTers going?


I had 2 tickets and was about to pay...then cancelled...after realizing how much money I'd probably end up spending!
Gonna put my money towards a fun August long weekend instead of a fun few hours.

Re: King Taps - First Canadian Place

I've been a couple times now (once on Saturday and again last night). Super young staff with little to no beer knowledge (they're at least friendly and the service is on point), solid tap list and pretty good food. As a sports fan, I'm a bit of a sucker for places like this and The Craft Brasserie....

Ya, only 4 people in front of me when I went around 1:30....5 minutes and I was out of there.

Re: Riverhead Brewing Co. - Kingston

Kingston is a decent beer destination now...enough to make a summer weekend trip worthwhile! Drive down through the county. There are some nice breweries along there now too. Lake on the mountain doesn't have the best beer, but their patio is the nicest I can think of in Ontario. Ya...probably wont...

Re: Drinking old - not aged - beer

About 4 years ago when they still sold beer on Ebay in the UK I bought some old Courage RIS bottles from the 70s and 90s, including one from my birth year of 75.
Didn't expect much at all, but they were all great, the 78 was the best. Won't ever get a chance to do that again I'm sure.

Re: Cider

For cider enthusiasts, I highly recommend a trip out to Her Father's Cider bar. I was there for a tasting menu recently and both the food and paired ciders were fantastic. The owner's family owns a cidery so many of the ciders on tap are unique (thai ginger, earl grey infused and higher end produce...

Re: King Taps - First Canadian Place

Their menu and taps list is upon their site now. Overall a good tap list. Some reasonably priced beers, some over priced. Or go for a Grandmas Boy 2017 bottle for $44 if you want to go crazy. $19.75 for nachos...is that a Toronto record? (before chicken or guac). I can see it being successful there....

Re: Rouge River

Apparently, the plan is not to repeat any beer. So, their next Winter IPA and Winter pale ale will be different (by using different hops?) than the last Winter IPA & pale ale. I'm not sure I would make that business decision. However, with the understanding many beer geeks rarely buy the same b...

Hearing lots of things about these guys as they get up and running. They emailed me a while back asking to participate in the Brewer's Backyard and I asked for more info about the brewery and got no response. Any news / details about them? Lots of marketing and promo stuff going on....apparently th...

Re: Bandit Brewery

Just checked their website, and their food menu seems very limited...from going by it seems like a big space, I just thought they'd have a decent kitchen or at least numerous food options.
Ah well...I guess best to east somewhere in Roncy first then samples at Bandit.
