I would assume not 91 pints, as flight pours that's not terribly unrealistic over ten days.

Now I'm thinking it's time for a trip to Montreal! :D (And speak of that, this is digressing into a Beer Travel discussion.)


Majority were full pours/bottles (and some I had multiples of). The 10 barrel, HotD, and Cascades were all flight pours with the exception of Apricot Ale. Some sours I had at Belmont Station Puckerfest were also flight pours.

It was pretty much Noon to 11pm everyday. It wasn't always pretty. Just ask the sidewalk outside of The Commons.

Oh, well that's completely reasonable if you put it that way. I was worried you were drinking a fair bit.

Thank you for the concern.

It is difficult to restrain oneself in the presence of so many amazing beer offerings. It's completely bonkers out there.

I had the Xyauyù Barrel version on tap in Rome and I thought it was fantastic. Sticky, fruity, sweet and complex. i'd save for a chilly night.

Yesterday at Indie Ale House:

Furlong Saison (passable)
Shapeshifter (the barrel works well here. Very enjoyable. Looking forward to tasting the bottles I bought up at Amsterdam)
Breakfast Porter
Shotgun Wedding (Sour barrel aged Cantaloupe blonde ale) I don't much like cantaloupe to begin with and felt this was a little too tart and rather syrupy)
Creamsicle (Cask). This was great. Nailed the creamsicle flavour. Had several.

Had a 2013 Sofie the other night too. Really good. I went and bought a few more 2015's last night to cellar.

Word. You know, we beer guys get away relatively cheap, when wine people often pay many more times cost for really prime product. Cellaring is a ridiculously good idea sometimes.

Sofie is one of the lcbo regular listings that I've been taking for granted. I plan on making up for that.

Nice to see some Sofie love. I maintain it's one of the top 5 semi-regular listings at the lcbo. it's delightful fresh, but you age that bad boy a couple years...

Sierra Nevada Kellerweis
Ommegang Three Philosophers

I'm in Rochester, NY, at the moment, and there's a bar that has pints of Three Philosophers for $5 USD (3.25 for a half pint). I have found heaven, and her name is Half-Pint. Sure, you get it in a normal pint glass rather than a fancy goblet/tulip/challis, but it is fantastic on tap.

just had a block 3 saison from the LCBO... fine/average/not bad (which is, unfortunately, an accomplishment considering the LCBO choices), but I wouldn't buy it again.
where's the saison du tracteur this year?!

Also, having a headstock (which I'll disclose as my, hands down, favourite IPA). There's been a bit of inconsistency lately (changeover to the newer, bigger, digs I assume)... but, this one has been pretty good though not their best.

Solstice d'ete '14 and '15. This beer is much better fresh. Will never age this again.
