Re: What're you drinking right now?

Inflation's a bitch so I've been searching for palatable, cheap options as my "utility" beer. I generally find the German imports to be high quality for the dollar, but honestly I've been drinking a fair bit of Cool Beer and it's definitely serviceable for $39/case. I know, I'm probably g...

Re: Great Lakes

Had a Karma Simcoe last night and it was excellent. Agreed the Lake Effect was tasting really good this year as well. I didn't enjoy Robohop this year however. Nothing wrong with it, I just prefer it being a WC double instead of a NE double. Agreed re: Robohop. It was nice, though, that they releas...

I ended up with an allocation of the Weller 12 and 1792 Single Barrel - nice haul for a first time win!

Re: Great Lakes

The Lake Effect I have been buying over the last couple weeks is in very good form. My memory might not be as good anymore, but it seems to be there with the best of the past years. I think it was only last year when I think it was not quite there. Keep in mind, we are still talking about an agricu...

Re: Great Lakes

I concur, Thrust is tasting really nice this year; one of the best in recent memory. Lake Effect however? Wasn't as impressed, flavour profile seemed flat/dialed down. I noticed this with Lake Effect when I bought some on the day it was released. Ended up buying a couple more cans a few weeks later...

I thought Lost in Orbit, Duplicitous, and Cheeky Bastard were all from that first mystery pack. Could be wrong though.

According to Bellwoods newsletter, Strawberry Rhubarb Jelly King will be coming out this month. If you don’t mind rhubarb too, I’d definitely check it out.

Re: Bellwoods Brewery

After a tough stretch at work, I cracked one of my BOYD 2018 bottles today. It was notably off and tasted infected. Hoping it was a one-off, I cracked a second bottle that turned out to be just as bad. Checked in with a buddy of mine and he had a bad experience with a bottle last weekend. I'm getti...

Re: Amsterdam Double Tempest Day - Nov 25

Just asked them on Instagram, looks like 3 per person and “super limited quantities”, which is about the same as last year.

Pretty sure this is a DIPA (8.2%), which would put that price roughly in line with the other canned DIPA's in the province.

Re: Coming Soon to the LCBO

Looks like the Food & Drink listing wasn't correct: [NEW] Nickel Brook Kentucky Bastard: http://www.lcbo.com/lcbo/product/nickel ... ard/543389 … ($12.95/500 mL bottle) Rated: 4.03/5 #beer #lcbo @NickelBrookBeer

Not as bad I guess.
