midlife crisis wrote:It's probably the best beer at Loblaws. That is an interesting question, actually -- what is the best beer commonly on the shelf at Loblaws?
Other contenders: CA Life in the Clouds, Omnipollo Zodiak, BtP Aromatherapy. (I would have included Side Launch Mountain Lager, but it is extinct of course).
Any other nominations? Put another way, what beer do you tend to buy at Loblaws (i.e. "I'm here anyway, this is good enough")?
Definitely CA, they seem to be well represented- even found Guava Gose a couple weeks back. Agreed with Zodiak and BtP, I'll typically pick them up while I'm there. A few other Superstore finds I've been enjoying are Sons of Kent 8 Track, Goodlot Farmstead Ale, Left Field Greenwood and Bang Bang, and Silversmith Black Lager. I find the turnover is better at my Superstore than nearby LCBOs, so I load up on fresh GLB and Nickelbrook as well.
On the topic of Mountain Lager, they seem to still be brewing it according to their Instagram and I found it at the Beer Store. It's disappointing that they scaled back distribution, but thankfully it's still out there. A good thing since it really is one of my favourite all-rounders.
