Fixed Gear Brewing Cherry Training Wheels also a new listing

And furthermore...Fixed Gear is nothing to write home about either.


the reviews for this beer don't seem so bad? I like sours.

I was thinking the Stout and the Pale Ale, but I guess the Pale isn’t part of the series. Didn’t try the honey wheat or the milkshake stout (which I would avoid like the plague) but I’ll check out the red. Agree on the peppermint IPA though... someone else check that out and let us know, lol

It's not bad, but it won't blow your socks off either. I'd call it a very approachable sour, if that makes sense.

I've had a bunch of Fixed Gear beers since moving to Guelph, and they've all been alright. Nothing that rocked my world, but the sours were mostly pleasant and easy to drink and the hoppy stuff was mostly tasty and on point for what they were supposed to be. They're not a world-beater of a brewery, but they might be my favourite in Guelph.

^^^^
To be fair, I haven’t had that particular beer. But everything I’ve had from fixed gear(6-8 different beers) has been very average at best. I won’t be buying any more until I hear otherwise.
I’d definitely say they’re my least favourite brewery in Guelph.

At $4.25/can I'd hope for something a lot better than average as well. I'm willing to pay that much but it'd better be an excellent beer, otherwise I'll stick with things like CA's Mash Up the Jam for $0.70 less per can.

Based on the other beers I’ve had from FG that’s probably about 1.00 too much. But keeping in line with their pricing.
Final straw for me was when I stopped in to the brewery for a drink, ordered a Pale Ale(don’t remember the name) was below average quality, about 12oz pour and something like 6$. Just wasn’t worth it IMO.
