Anyone know is this is coming back?


Please, please. I love this beer.
It is a great beer. I’d be glad to see it back as well.

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.

The Chimay 150 is sensational. I’ll be stocking up big time.

Re: What're you drinking right now?

Alla Caccia (On The Hunt) from Lake of Bays. Billed as a "Crisp Dry Pilsner" - which it certainly is - and an "Italian Style Pilsner" which I don't think is a thing but I could be wrong. Anyway, this is like nothing I've tried before and so I'm probably more impressed than I sho...

Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

Was in Cambridge today on a Barncat run, so made a random stop at LCBO. Surprised to see Orval back, as I hadn’t seen any mention of it in the fall releases. Always good to stock up on a good number of them, hopefully it’s a decent sized rollout.

Re: 2022 Autumn Beer Release

I'm curious about that Allsops. I hadn't heard much about them, I'm sure many of you know more than I do, but I gather they're an old defunct British brand that's being reborn. They're claiming to try to stick as close as possible to the original recipes. I'm also interested in the Zeven Zonden and...

Re: Is cask beer still a thing?

I have a pint of Arkel best on cask almost every single time I’m in The Wooly. Each and every time I say to myself that I wish more places did cask beer.

Where in Fergus?

I’d imagine he’s taking about “The Outpost”

Re: 2022 Autumn Beer Release

Glad to see the Gonzo back again.
I’d far prefer the OG Yeti to return than the chocolate one.
More Chimay is always a good thing
The Windswept beers are usually pretty solid stuff at a very reasonable price, so looking forward to that.

Re: Are there any kick-ass breweries I'm missing?

Town makes some of the best IPAs in the province, in my opinion. I would say they're perhaps not quite as dense/sweet as some Badlands and 3M, but that's why I like them so much, I find them more balanced for my palate. Rouge River make some excellent hazy IPAs as well. I like Town ok, nut as much ...

Re: Are there any kick-ass breweries I'm missing?

Barncat is right on par, if not better than 3moon and badlands IMO. Unfortunately no shipping, and not great hours if your. It local. Willibald makes really good hazies as well. They do ship I believe. Counterpart should be in your radar but not sure if they ship or not. I’d also suggest Dominion ci...

Re: Would beers from the past be highly regarded today?

Cameron’s RPA?? I used to think that it was a fantastic beer. The original version, the one available only in bombers…not this newest re-release version that was completely different. I’ll also throw out the original Witchshark from Bellwoods. Last time I had it, maybe 2 years ago it was a completel...

Well, that’s a very pleasant surprise. I didn’t know we were getting it back this year.
