Re: What to do if you think you have a really bad batch (tainted)?

I don't think there is anything wrong with getting in touch with the brewery, explaining what you've told us, and expressing your concern. If you use good EQ and aren't being unjustly accusatory, they should appreciate hearing from you. The last thing they would want is for some bad beer to be out t...

Re: The Poacher - Burlington

Being from Burlington, I guess I could have / should have started a thread for this place. Thanks @hopdevil

I don't get there often - last time was last June. They had a good beer selection including two or three from Third Moon. Food has always been good.

Re: Any new beers at Rogers Centre this year?

I had Oast House Country Ale which was available not too far away from my seats. For a public venue like this, I was quite happy with that.

Re: Any new beers at Rogers Centre this year?

What I didn't say up above is that I'm actually going to the game tomorrow. Was given some tickets unexpectedly. I Googled "beer at the Roger's Centre" and found a link to the MLB website. https://www.mlb.com/bluejays/ballpark/beer-wine-liquor I'm a bit disappointed. Almost everything is a...

Ha! Same...I call it SkyDome myself.
But I was trying to appeal to the younger crowd, some of whom are now old enough to drink, and were never alive when it was called SkyDome.
How is that for feeling old?
Thanks. You made my day. :roll:

Re: Any new beers at Rogers Centre this year?

I haven't been to, a'hem, the SkyDome in probably a few years now. Very much looking forward to seeing a good beer selection. Do I need to up the limit on my credit card first? :D

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...

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...

I was almost anticipating some humour from you on this. You didn’t disappoint. :D :D :D
