I think this is a very important point. Also even very good craft breweries need some more accessible beers. Let someone taste what a well-made pilsner or lager tastes like and maybe they'll transition from the Molbatts (I like this term) swill they're used to. Then maybe they'll explore the world of IPA's, stouts, etc. Someone who only knows Bud Light and Labatt's is probably not going to be wild about an IPA the first time they try it.

Karma Citra returns to the GLB bottle shop tomorrow at 10am.

Still doing the 2 case limit. Hopefully that means there's a large quantity available.

I'm drinking the imperial stout right now on tap (at Tequila Bookworm -- $5 for 15oz til 5pm) and it doesn't have a name. It's really impressing me. Would love to get this in some bottles sometime.

I think the only imperial stout he has released was "Hearts Collide"

With all of the mixed reviews that I have heard so far, the one constant seems to be that people love the imperial stout. I have yet to try that one myself, so I can't comment on it.

Just a heads up, it was released yesterday, not today. :P

Their Twitter is saying they had 10 cases left around midday today (Saturday) so it didn't sell out as quickly as it did in January when cans were released without an LCBO bomber release.

I doubt I'll get to try this one, but it's nice to see an Ontario brewer taking on the style:

Stone City Ales ‏@StoneCityAles Aug 28
It's here. Peach, Don't Kill My Vibe is available on draft and in our tap room!

(It's a peach Berliner Weisse)

Sounds yummy, and nice hip hop reference (Kendrick Lamar). Shame I won't be able to get out there.

Hope it's better than Muskoka's Peach Kolsch (yes I know, different styles) because that was some weak sauce on the peach side of things.

My favourite peach beer right now is Oast's Peach Ale only available at Momofuko. I was hoping Oast's more widely available Konichiwa was close but I didn't really care for it.
