Re: Uncorked-Wine and Spirits Appreciation

I ended up with another email from Vintages offering me the other variant of Blanton's, so I took that too. So 2/2 on this offer, I guess I got pretty lucky. Having a wee taste of the Blanton's Special Reserve, which I see from their site is a lighter proof version (80) for international markets onl...

Re: Happy Holidays!

Can the province unilaterally legalize public consumption? It seems like everything else loosened up maybe this can be next!

Re: Montreal

Boy am I glad I made it there when I did! Crazy how things changed so fast. Hopefully we’ll all be able to get out and about visiting places again soon.

Re: Thirsty & Miserable

Sad to see that T&M didn’t get to have the blowout end of year celebrations that they had planned. A buddy and I were going to try and get there if they stayed open that last week of the year, but it seemed like staff COVID ended that. It was a fun spot and will be remembered!

Re: What're you drinking right now?

It’s never a bad thing when beer appears at my door, and today I found a box from Spearhead with their new Oatmeal Cream Ale. Can’t say I can ever remember this combination of words in a beer before :D

Re: Samuel Adams Utopia 2015

I had no idea that it was coming back until I saw a tweet from Greg. I still have one unopened from the past, so I passed :D

The Blanton's Gold came pretty quick to the local LCBO! Can't wait to give it a try.

Re: Ontario Beer Delivery Index

So now seems like a pretty good time to give the OBDI a quick once over to make sure things are up-to-date as things are closing down once again. Added a few breweries today that frankly I had never heard of: Curley, Paris, Good Prospects & Dog House. If anyone sees anything off please let me kn...

Re: Signal Brewing Co., Belleville

A strange post made by Signal mentioning this guy's passing and then moving on to talk about a merchandise sale. Seems like a odd couple of things to talk about together.

I loved it. Over the years I have really come to love all varieties of Imperial Stouts.
Awesome! Yeah, I have the mix pack of this year's OoD and am working my way through it. Really enjoyable.

Re: What're you drinking right now?

In honour of the postponed Indie stout night, I’m having a Collective Arts Origin of Darkness, bourbon & tawny port barrel version with cherries, vanilla & cacao nibs. Nice for a wintry night!

Re: Signal Brewing Co., Belleville

Sad news from Signal: https://www.canadianbeernews.com/2021/12/15/signal-brewery-owner-richard-courneyea-passes-away/ Jordan had some unusually direct strong words about the brewery not too long ago: https://twitter.com/saints_gambit/status/1468765760118046724?s=20 Not sure what the story on this was.
