Re: LCBO Online Exclusives

I think with the loosened booze restrictions Keep6 and others are moving things through non-LCBO channels now. I'm not sure what you mean by this. I'm referring to restaurants getting the right to sell alcohol to go during COVID. For instance, Keep6 is still importing exclusive beer/wine/spirits, b...

Re: LCBO Online Exclusives

Looking at their online exclusive category, it looks pretty pathetic and nothing is available There hasn't been a whole lot going on with online exclusives for a while. I think with the loosened booze restrictions Keep6 and others are moving things through non-LCBO channels now. Since they can't co...

Re: What're you drinking right now?

Great Lakes Brewery Beard of Zeus (2014) — I remember picking this up and being delighted by the "best AFTER Dec 31, 2014" label. That trend never took off. For me, barley wines are very hit and miss, this one is still a hit with lots of barrel, bourbon and malty goodness enduring after 7 ...

Gouden Carolus Hopsinjoor — I didn’t even know this hit shelves! Great stuff. I’m on a real kick for golden bitter Belgians, when I can find them.

Re: Orval the hills and far away...

This batch didn't strike me a especially different. But if memory serves, we wouldn't normally see Orval quite so fresh. More Brett is always a good thing, let's hope it builds up to a sweet spot in the coming months. (And we see more batches).

Re: What're you drinking right now?

Aventinus Eisbock (2018) - All this frigidity had me reaching for one of these that I picked up on clearance a while back. Very much enjoying it. Gladly so because I found the current LCBO batch (small bottles) very unpalatable, harshly boozy. Perhaps I just wasn't in the mood or the cellaring mello...

Re: Sklepník

Sklepník Ve Dřevě - Wood Edition Having this now. In addition to the nice hop and malt profiles, this lager definitely has something special going on — I can't really put my finger on it (and I missed out on the non-wood version). It's some kind of funky-woody layer. Godspeed says is has a "pl...

I don't know if there's anything special about this, but I wanted to try it last time it was in the LCBO and didn't manage to get any.

I quite enjoy it, great price too. Glad to see it in cans.

Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

I happened upon St-Feuillien Saison the other day. It doesn't seem to be listed online yet but it's fresh and drinking mighty fine. I think this is my favourite saison.

Re: brewed.today

Love the site and very cool article. Interesting to see Rorschach and Bellwoods are really ahead of the pack in terms of variety in Ontario.

Re: Bellwoods Brewery

I''m not a brewer but the price is understandable. These DOUBLE barrel releases have spent like 18-26 months sitting in barrels adding costs related to storage and transfer while compounding the risk of spoilage. All while losing liquid volume to evaporation. Yup it's expensive but justified IMO. Th...

Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

Begrudgingly purchased a 6 week old double ipa from Florida? Personally I think that timeframe is pretty damn good. Considering it's an LCBO import, that's not bad. Call me spoiled but 6-weeks puts me off an IPA. Nevertheless... How is the Florida Man? Drinking it now ice cold, it's quite nice. Gla...

Cigar City Florida Man Double IPA -Canned Dec 12 2020... begrudgingly purchased
Oskar Blues Can-O-Bliss Double IPA - Canned Oct 2020.. pass :cry:

This makes me think Oskar Blues is partially to blame for the embarrassingly stale product we get here.

Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

Stille Nacht is indeed delicious and well worth picking up. I might get a couple more for Xmas 2021.

Also just ordered some Dulle Teve and Arabier online. Cheers Gleemer!
