I’ve long been a fan of Kacaba reds and the terrace vineyard syrahs are magical on exceptional vintages

Re: CRAFT Beer Market - Toronto

It’s very loud in there when it’s busy, food was ok...service was not the best for a party of 8...they add the gratuity but the service got worse...beer selection was great for Toronto macro drinkers in my party were happy as was I with the craft.. good addition to the scene

Re: Worst Ontario Craft Breweries

Re: Town Brewery

One year anniversary for these guys anot much love on here for these guys...as a Durham regioner I think it’s great to have them and Little Beasts in the scene and am a little saddened but not surprised at Brock St success...their beers are exactly in line with the macro tastes of this area

Re: Whitewater brewing - Class V IPA

This doesnt fall short of an IPA as you state...it’s just different than what you’ve tried probably more in line with West Coast IPAs or New England style. classic English IPAs are still IPAs by style...just this style isn’t our preferred within the large style spectrum

Town Brewery

All styles are on point: the wheat ipa was my favourite as really good mouthfeel and citrus and pine. The saison was great too. Session ipa,pale ale and blonde are solid not spectacular. The stout was ok but I’m not a huge stout guy so ...curious to see other Durham folks thoughts on this and Little...

Re: Nickel Brook Brewing

Was there last Saturday and the funk house line up was amazing. Had a flight and no charge for the flight since I ended up buying a bunch of sours. I’m a happy man but wish they would put out more than just the raspberry Uber at lickbos

Fairweather Brewing

Was there last week and they had standard pales, a few IPAs, Saisons and a porter I believe. The Sundrop Ipa was pretty good ...as was the other ipa I tried and can’t remember; they had an apricot Berliner weisse that was delicious but not in bottles; one called Swoon with montmercy cherries but ver...
