Re: Munich, Bamberg, Brugge, and Brussels.

Probably too late, but for Brussels of course Cantillon and Moeder. Also, 3F is a pretty easy train or uber ride. Malt Attacks was great little bottle shop.

There are so many cool spots in Brussels would be impossible to name them all.

Re: Vermont

Couple of nights in Stowe this weekend. Similar to my comment a year ago, yeah man the amount of formerly hard to find beer that is just sitting around now is staggering. Great beer everwhere! Round up: Hill Farmstead: Damon! Soigné! Great onsite tap list, some big names on the retail list, always a...

Re: Pittsburgh PA

Updating an old thread. Was in Pittsburgh this weekend, small roundup... Proper: enjoyed the pizza and solid beer selection pre-baseball game. PNC Park: decent craft beer selection. Dancing Gnome: made it in time for cans on Saturday, didn't have time to have a beer there. Looked like a really cool ...

Re: Nova Scotia

Awesome report! Yeah, 2 crows location is a bit odd, but they've done a good job with the tasting room overall. Plus it's literally next door to my office when I manage to get out east (which hasn't been nearly often enough lately!!), so I'm not complaining. I really don't like the space at unfilter...

Re: Nova Scotia

Without going back to the whole thread, I think this sums up Halifax pretty well: Stillwell: YES! They also have a bottle shop for their house beers in the old Propeller location, don't know what the hours are. Unfiltered: Fcukityfuckfuck you should go, bring soap for your mouth. 2 Crows: neat spot,...

Re: Zwanze

Just circling back to this, Zwanze at Moeder Fontainas was aweseome!! Busy but service handled it fine. Burlesque performers, insane Cantillon tap list, great night!! And the 3 days of drinking at Cantillon and 3F leading up to it were incredible.

Re: Ottawa and area help

Weird that Lupulus is closed Saturday afternoons?? Could have sworn I was just there on a Saturday, but maybe it was Sunday. Anyway, yeah odd for sure. If you are mobile with a car, Small Pony is new and definitely noteworthy. Check hours, but I think they are open Saturday afternoon. And depending ...

Re: Zwanze

So... I can maybe rearrange some planned travel to Europe in late September to be in Brussels for Zwanze 2018. Anybody have any insight/experience on whether it's worth the effort? It would mean extending my trip by about 4-5 days, which isn't negligible from a budget/vacation time perspective. I ce...

Denver/Boulder

Hi all, kind of surprised that no Denver report on here. Saw one from almost 10 years ago that included some Denver info, but also stuff on the way down. So figured I'd make one just for Denver. Mods merge it with the older one if you prefer. Just spent a week in Denver, awesome city!! And beer is c...

Re: Coming Soon to the LCBO

Thought I saw Keep6/volo tweet something about launching kbs this year yesterday and an event at volo, but I didn't see a follow up about distribution (if any).

Re: Vermont

Interesting to hear about Vermont nowadays, although not totally surprised. I was amazed that HT & SOS maintained that level of frenzy for *so* long. Remember SOS started contracting out (at Four Roads I think) and of course Alchemist opened that new brewery. With the extra volume, new trendy p...
