Re: Pedal Pubs in Toronto

Canadian cities are legalizing alcohol in parks. Some are celebrating, others worry it's a slippery slope After hearing Holyday at the council debate about this, I believe he's simply a contrary opinion to fulfill a "both sides" requirement for this article. He doesn't want it and it isn'...

Henderson's 2021 Beast Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Amber Ale Despite the fact I've never had much of a liking for bourbon, I have come to love bourbon barrel-aged beers. Mostly these are stouts, this one is an amber ale. I loved it. Great flavour, appropriately packaged in a 375 mL bottle given tha...

Re: Henderson Brewing Co

Sometimes I wonder if there are breweries that are just built to be sold. Hendersons comes to mind. They just scaled fast, but the beer is nothing remarkable. In fact, I've had samples at the brewery that made me scratch my head. Like, you couldn't nail this style? This partial quote comes from ano...

Re: East Lansing, MI

One thing that still strikes me about the US craft beer scene, is how many breweries even the smaller to midsize cities tend to support. And not just the volume, but the density and fact that they're often within the more traditional urban boundaries of the city. Here it seems that outside of Toron...

Re: Bellwoods Brewery

I was pleasantly surprised to find Ghost Orchid at the 'BO. I don't think I've ever seen it there before. It has been mentioned elsewhere in the forum, but I'll mention it again here. I recommend frequently checking LCBO Beer Inventory ... a better way to explore! I occasionally find a beer in the ...

Despite all the negative comments above, these guys are still going strong. I've made two on-line orders from them this year, and while I'll skip the details, I wanted to give a shout out to Stephanie Whittaker for great customer service. I always liked 'em! Pick up any good seasonals? Oatmeal Crea...

I found this resource too.

I emailed them to inquire about shipping fees and it came back undeliverable.
