Re: beer (alcohol) and health

We have a good discussion on gout in another thread (thanks Matt for that), but I thought I would start a more general discussion. Consciously, or sub-consciously, I sometimes contemplate how much alcohol I consume, usually convincing myself that all is good. I'm not sure when I first heard of &quo...

Re: Hazelnut beers

Barncat has a hazelnut beer release this weekend: https://barncatales.com/2023/01/18/beer-for-january-20-21-2/ Jackass has a hazelnut Porter right now as well. To be honest I’ve never really had anything that good from Jackass, but it may be worth your while heading to C-bridge and hitting the two ...

Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

LCBO website is showing the closest location with LTM Baltique is in Ottawa- anyone know if this one just sold through quickly, or just slow to distribute? Hopefully the latter since I was meaning to go look for some. I was in an LCBO in Guelph today and there was a good number. I grabbed a couple

Re: Top 5 B.S.

I’ll throw in a couple, off the top of my head. Labbat 50-I don’t mind a 50 here and there when there’s no better option at certain places(honorable mention to Molson Export) Bellwoods Bellweiser-ever since they’ve put it in the LCBO and grocery stores it’s the one beer I constantly come back to on ...

Re: Nickel Brook Brewing

Anybody had this years Kentucky(RIP bastard)? I’ll usually buy a couple each year. I’ve just been drinking my first this year and it’s a huge let down. There’s a decent amount of bourbon on the nose…but in the palate is is lacking big time compared to previous years. There’s a touch of that heat you...

There’s a good number of 3F Intens Rood in stores now, and it looks like pretty wide distribution.

Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

Wavemaker has their Lagerbier listed in the LCBO; no inventory yet. They describe it as a Franconian-style lager which was just discussed on the Elora Brewing thread. From the Wavemaker website: Pouring a hazy golden yellow, this unfiltered, Franconian-style lager is very expressive while maintaini...

Re: Elora Brewing Company (n. of Guelph)

These guys have become one of my semi-regular places to order from since I moved to Guelph. Free shipping and all that. I'm particularly fond of their Lagers, particularly the Pilsner Elora, which is also attractively priced at 3.14 for a tall boy. Every fall they put out some dark lagers too, whic...

Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

Yep that is a tasty beer.
They make really good ipas…but I have to say I’m glad they didn’t go that route for their first LCBO listing. Nice to see more quality local lagers sneaking in there. The selection is actually becoming pretty good.

Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

I just saw that Great Lakes is bringing back the BBA Solstice to LCBO. I really enjoyed that one last time around.
Hopefully they bring back Beard of Zeus as well.
