Agreed, and it's also great to see something from Poland that is not a pale lager. There is a real lack of variety in the central/eastern European selection in this province. More baltic porters and dark lagers from that region would be a welcome addition to the shelves.


I realize I am a bit late to the party, and it is not exactly the quintessential summer beer (though ok on a stormy, overcast day like today) but I couldn't agree more - this beer is absolutely excellent and a steal at $3.65 for 500 ml. It could be listed for double that and I doubt you would blink.

I will definitely be buying a bunch for the long cold winter (presumably) ahead.

Wow...drinking a Yummy from Beyond The Pale. Not cheap at $4.00 a can, but a good Jutsu clone.

There are going to be too many of these in my fridge soon.

Thanks. Will keep my eyes peeled for that - one loves Jutsu. Funny, but BTP seems to be one of the mainstays of my Loblaws here in the middle of Toronto, even though it originates in Ottawa of course. The mysteries of our beer distribution I guess ...

If anyone knows any grocery stores stocking Yummy in the south Durham area (Pickering, Ajax, Oshawa) let me know.

Fuggles & Warlock’s Destiny IPA and Strawberry Wit at TBS if that interests anyone.
That's the way she goes. Sometimes she goes, sometimes it doesn't. She didn't go. That's the way she goes.

Yes, it's very good. And the Dorval store in Oakville actually has loads of it, discounted to $2.57 or something equally ridiculous. Stock up I will.

The new GLB Toronto Island Strawberry and Mango Norwegian Farmhouse Ale is soooooooooooooo good. Totally worth $10 for the 650ml bottle imo. I may have to load up.

Having one now!

Definite presence of berry / tropical fruit blended into the dry and lightly earthy aspects. Aromas are more tangy and wild-berry-esque. There's a little genuine body and character to this one, worth trying one.

Agree on all points. I really dig this beer, and its a good alternative to Jutsu at (I think) $1.50 less for the same amount.

This brew is fantastic. Jutsu similarity noted, especially the slightly 'peppery' hop resin. A good fridge stocker-upper for me too. Your stock is rising BtP.

I'd kill for the habanero one. Hope we get it at some point
