Re: Left Field Brewery

I can't imagine anywhere having a chill vibe like Godspeed after a TFC game? :wink:

Re: Toronto Brew Pass from Destination Toronto

Sounds similar to that old craft beer passport that was around some years ago? Took a look. Most breweries are good offers. The two Left Field locations include the same beer (Ice Cold Beer), which seems silly... Granite is only a 10oz pour, whereas GLB is 2x 12oz pours. Details: https://explore.des...

Re: Non-Alcoholic Beer

Harmon's has been putting out a bunch of seasonal/limited edition non-alcs the past while, and Henderson and Rainhard both have new ones.
Planning to stick mostly to non-alcs in July and will report back on any new favourites.

Sober-ish fest - Bevvy's and Henderson

We had the No-Lo fest at the Only Cafe some months ago...and it seems we're getting another (mostly) non-alcoholic beers fest in July.

This one has a $20 ticket price.

Re: Third Moon Brewing

Noticed they released about 10 beers for their anniversary this past week, with some already sold out. Does anyone else have a weird completionist mentality like me, and if you can't get them all, you skip them all? ALL OR NOTHING! :D I think it saves me lots of money in the end. Another example is ...

Re: Non-Alcoholic Beer

Town Brewery has a couple of non-alcoholic brews out now.
Going to bike out that way next week to pick them up and give them a try.
Side Launch apparently has one now too.

Re: Godspeed - Je Me Souviens

Very nice. A handful of brews I'm wanting to try.
A bit surprised some more of the classics aren't there, considering there is a mix-pack of cans at The Beer Store these days. (The only thing I ever buy there, lol)

Re: Zwanze

Ah that is cool about the bottles to go option.
A nice way to stash a few special beers then. I would be more inclined to do that.
Sounds like it was a fun event for those who went!

Re: Zwanze

That's just silly pricing.
I wonder if that is hyper inflated markups or actually reflective of the relative cost of importing and selling some of the harder to get variations.

Re: Godspeed - Je Me Souviens

Nice to know you can still find some Unibroue on tap around town!
I really like the "C'est nest pas la Fin du Monde" beer they brought out a handful of years ago now.
Never did get around to trying their Black Forest cake beer...maybe we'll get lucky with that one showing up at Godspeed.

Re: Any new beers at Rogers Centre this year?

From user drrdf, via Reddit. Craft: Henderson Golden Ale and Bellwoods Jelly King. Pseudo-Craft: Mill Street Organic and IPA All priced at $14 . Personally, I'd bring my own non-alcoholic drink and get something better after the game. Funny you mention about bringing in your own NA beer. I did that...

Re: Any new beers at Rogers Centre this year?

I haven't been to, a'hem, the SkyDome in probably a few years now. Very much looking forward to seeing a good beer selection. Do I need to up the limit on my credit card first? :D LOL, I also had to stop and think for a minute to remember what the 'Rogers Centre' is. That building will never not be...

Re: Godspeed - Je Me Souviens

Definitely curious to see what they'll bring in. The mix packs are always a treat. They have some newer brews I haven't had like P'tite Maudite. For $5 I used to get 20oz pours of Trois Pistoles at a hostel in Tadoussac...plenty of fun, but fuzzy, memories from those trips. ***Can't share too much ...

Any new beers at Rogers Centre this year?

Last year there was Jelly King, Jutsu, Boneshaker, Rush Golden Ale, Blood Brothers White Lies... I've been seeing ads for some Double Hopped Bud Lime...so I guess that will be new, lol. Last year when I went I found the best place to grab beers was the self serve / grab and go credit card spot as th...
