Henderson The Myth of Permanence Lager Series 015: Baltic Porter

Mmmmm, yummy! A shout out to Muddy York too. Had one of their Plank Road Baltic Porters about a month ago and it was equally good.

Re: What're you drinking right now?

I rarely have a beer that I don't enjoy at some level, even if it's only the joy of trying it, but don't care to have it again. But this afternoon, I had Whitewater Jack Frost's Demise Chocolate Wintergreen Porter, and I just didn't like it. The wintergreen was too overpowering.

Re: Ontario Brewing Awards 2021

Certainly looks like only a subset of Ontario brewers submitted, which has been the case for a while. Yes, it does look like that, doesn't it. The result that caught my eye was Black Gold's What the Frack finishing ahead of Clifford Porter in the Brown British Beer category. I actually have one tha...

Re: What to do with the Bar Towel Forums?

Not critical to increasing traffic or participation, but...

...I sometimes look at the Members list. It shows when we joined. Is it possible to add a column showing when they were last active. You can see that when you look at an individual member, so I think it would be easy to do.

Re: Junction Craft Brewing

Haven't heard much news about breweries closing, even with the pandemic, but these guys are now in bankruptcy protection.

A very simple technical upgrade. I can't believe I am saying this because I don't take pictures of every last second in my life, but it would be nice to post images as a simple inline attachment to a post as opposed to linking. Snap a pic of that label and share might make activity more lively. Ver...

For those of us not on instagram, could you copy text of the announcement here? :wink: Just curious as to the reason why they are shutting down.
