Seems these will reduce that risk. you can def dry hop with cryo how long are you leaving your beer on the hops when dry hopping? Thanks Matt, I’ll give them a try. Would 1...

Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

I happened upon St-Feuillien Saison the other day. It doesn't seem to be listed online yet but it's fresh and drinking mighty fine. I think this is my favourite saison. In our opinion? Fantome Saison's one of the best, but it's far from classic. It's weird and wonderful. Dupont is still the best ba...

Re: Bellwoods Brewery

I''m not a brewer but the price is understandable. These DOUBLE barrel releases have spent like 18-26 months sitting in barrels adding costs related to storage and transfer while compounding the risk of spoilage. All while losing liquid volume to evaporation. Yup it's expensive but justified IMO. T...

This makes me think Oskar Blues is partially to blame for the embarrassingly stale product we get here.

Re: Bellwoods Brewery

Anyone else think Bellwoods is out to lunch with their pricing these days? The latest releases for BOYD and Skeleton Key are $20/btl! That's still a 500ml bottle btw. I used to buy Bellwoods all the time but they've lost me with these crazy high prices for their barrel aged releases. these should b...

Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

So I heard through the grapevine that Orval has shown up in the LCBO warehouse, but it's not listed yet. I haven't seen any news regarding the LCBO bringing it back, so curious if anyone else has heard anything about this? There's apparently 20k bottles, which seems like a lot for a private order. ...

Re: Wellington

I believe breweries that have multiple sites/stores can sell beer from either site in both stores. For instance, Bellwoods sells all their labels at both Hafis and Ossington, even though most production happens at Hafis. I think it's like this: If you have a brewery, you can get a on-site store whe...
