Agreed. I was disappointed when I tried them early on, but they've seriously been producing some of my favourite beers in Toronto over the past year and a bit. Laser Light Show, Spaceman, Sweet Jesus, Bricks & Mortar, Squeeze Play and their new collab with Godspeed to name a few. Their core beers weren't very consistent early on, but now Eephus is one of my favourite local brown ales. Sunlight Park is usually quite good too, and Wrigley Oat Pale Ale is excellent when you can find it. I just wish they'd can Eephus again because my main complaint is all their beer is in pricey bombers.
had the Godspeed colab. thought it was meh. got zero citrus notes from it. asked a few friends and they concurred.
talked to a total beergeek stranger that weekend and he said he loved it for its great citrus tones.
so...not sure what's going on there.
i also don't get the Burdock love. have usually been disappointed. i thought Bumo was gross. heard the beer's dropped quite a bit since Siobhon left, but then i also heard people loving the Brett Lime (i only had the Lime Lite and thought it wasn't very good)
