Any recommendations for great saisons within reach to drown my sorrows with? Was thinking of making an order from Half Hours and/or Burdock...
Saison Dupont is hitting LCBO shelves any day now.
HHOE have a pretty epic lineup in their online shop right now. I'd wager about half of it is better than anything in this HF release.
Four Winds Nectarous has been available online for a while now, it's pretty great and normally hard to get here too.
Cascade Rose City, Sang Rouge and Midnight Bramble are all in stock online right now.
Crooked Stave Veille is in stock online.
Honestly, I don't really get what all the hubub was over the HF release. I've had all those beers before and while they're all great the only one I considered buying was Florence. I decided to get some Nectarous instead, because I like the beer just as much and it was cheaper/easier. I got some Veille last week too. Once I finish drinking down my stock of Lem, I'll probably put in another HHOE order because their stuff is just so good if you love the sour stuff.
This is great advice, thanks! I had no idea about the Crooked Stave or Four Winds. And the latest from HHOE does look pretty epic at the moment. You, kind sir, have saved the day.
