Re: :roll: Red Herring

It strikes me that there are three different issues here. 1) Putting stupid stuff in beer. Not much to discuss in my opinion. If someone wants to make a chocolate mint stout with vanilla and jalapeno peppers, who I am I to say they shouldn't. Of course, I may not buy it. :wink: 2) Labelling beer wit...

Re: Nickel Brook Brewing

Nickel Brook has re-branded their No Bad Daze Easy Going Lager to simply Easy Going Lager. Hmmmm. Can't think of why. Turns out it isn't re-branding, but a replacement. "Please note that this new brew will be replacing our "No Bad Daze - Easy-Goin' Lager". You can still purchase No B...

Re: Henderson Brewing Co

I like this brewery, have stopped in two or three times and have ordered on-line as well. If you know anything about them, you know they partnered with Rush and have made several Rush-branded beers, as well as other merch. I think they had a Rush "day" last summer and are doing that again....

Re: Greg Clow to close Canadian Beer News

Re: Recruiting back to the Bar Towel
