Innis & Gunn Canada Day 2011

I don't want these Oak Aged beers too often, but I do like them once in a while. This one is good, but also much more expensive. Better value in my mind to just buy the 'original'.

Russian River Sanctification and Sherbrooke Heartstopper for me tonight - both great brews and representations of the different ends of the flavor spectrum.

Amber's Brewing Black & Tan. It's their chocolate stout and Australian Mountain Pepper Berry ale infused with chipotle. Hope this becomes a regular!!!

Anchor small beer. I really like it... for what it is.

Cantillon Rose de Gambrinus. Grabbed a 375ml when I was in Vancouver last week....couldn't justify a large bottle just in case I didn't like it.

It's OK, I guess. Not something I'd buy again, but had to try it and see what the 'hype' is all about.

Having a Bell's Double Cream Stout. Just got back from a quick trip to Chicago with my wife, had a few local brews down there, nothing too crazy, Goose Island 312, Green Line, some Bells Two Hearted. Flew back and was 10 pounds over for a few bombers and furiously had to unpack clothes into my carry on to get within the weight limit. Went to Binny's on Clyborne, pretty much dumbfounded as to what to chose. They had more Charlevoix, DDC and Unibroue than we've ever seen here. And they have 2 kinds of Sierra Nevadas in their 7-11's. Awesome town...my feet are tired!

My first Westy 12. Wow is this ever a complex and unique beer. Worth the hype.

Hockley Black and Tan
Young's Double Chocolate Stout

Trying to get into stouts these days, starting to ease in with some lighter varieties. Got a Chocolate Oak Aged Yeti sitting in my closet for when I'm ready.
