Re: General Ontario Brewery Discussion

Me too. Saving $20 on shipping was the tipping point for me to try them. I'm guessing the beer will get here tomorrow or early next week.

Re: Great Lakes

Just noticed on The Wooly's Facebook page a few pics of the guys @ Great Lakes brewing some Stuff for the annual tap takeover. No more info than that, but will be in the next couple weeks if memory serves me correct. I wasn't able to make it last year, hopefully can make it back again this year. Al...

Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

No more Orval at Speedvale folks damn. i didnt make it today. I work right downtown now so it's a little more out of the way to get to speedvale. stone rd is really lacking lately too.

Re: Radical Road Brewery

They actually move the mashing vessel out of the kitchen during service, because there's not enough room for both in there. I gather they just pick it up and carry it downstairs. i use a 55 litre kettle at home. they are literally brewing at 4x the capacity of what i'm doing at home. *sigh* Doesn't...

Miijidaa in Guelph has a positively stunning kitchen and well-priced menu. The chef is a bit of a star. Might go there to eat and the other places mentioned to drink afterwards, the next time I visit my cousin. Just be prepared for slow service. Anytime I've been in there, while food was good, serv...

Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

I assumed you would say The Wooly, but also Sip Club has a very good selection. eBar is decent too. Just saying, I think there's more than 2 places in Guelph. I'vehonestly never been in the sip club before but that's good to know. I'll have to make a point of stopping in. I havnt been to the ebar i...

Re: The Brew Box - home-delivered craft beer

I found a flyer for The Brew Box ( https://www.thebrewbox.co/ ) on my porch this morning. Some interesting stuff but that's a lot of coin. Basically it's at least $5 per tall boy...taken from the Sawdust City $60 example. Their cheapest mixed brewery pack is $70 for "approximately 4 litres of ...

Right on. Thanks! That's what I figured, but my experience growing is pretty limited. Put some centenial in the ground summer, but didn't get any cones the first year. They survived the winter and are growing gangbusters right now. Didn't know if it was just the mild SW Ontario winter we had or if ...
