Can't comment on the altbier, but agree with lister, the Wunder Weisse is fantastic on draught. Believe I had it at Beer Bistro last year if not mistaken. Bottle version was sub-par though. Looking forward to warmer weather and more wheat / session beers!

Is there anything new at Beer Bistro to be aware of?
Haven't been for a couple months, but will be dropping by at least once next week.
Cheers!

Greetings! I guess I am a newbie...and would post more if I had more free time. Usually drop by to check things out and get a good laugh at all the banter happening on the forums. I was a member of the mass-market beer club for years, but secretly knew I needed more. Went to Belgium and got hooked o...

Delirium Tremens at Cooper St LCBO?

Hey all, Searching around the LCBO site for some beers to pick up, and I decided to punch in delirium. It came up with over 500 at the Copper St LCBO. Can anyone verify that they have tons of it lying around there? It is the only location that came up, so I don't want to waste a trip into the city i...

Good beers in Africa?

Hey Bartowelers! Wondering if anyone has some good beer reccommendations in East Africa (besides Tusker or Castle of course!), as I will be there next month. I did a search on Rate Beer and saw a number of decent ranked stouts and beers...so I know there must be some choices over there! Anyhow... Go...

Quick question here.... I work for a travel company and we will launch some new destinations later this year. Is it even possible (and if possible, is it practical?) to arrange an order for such uncommon beers as "Three Horses" from Madagascar? (which I have had...and it's by no means terr...

I have to also agree with Old Faithful on this one...I enjoy Sleeman beers, and the new Original Draught is quite drinkable. I was faced with the task of bringing beer to my last baseball game, and could not bare bringing the usual molbatt stuff, so this was a compromise (albeit overpriced). The PR ...

Thanks Steve, Dropped by last Wednesday for dinner, and enjoyed the ribs .... delicious. Was given a sample of the King Dark, quite tasty! later on I opted for a glass of Denison's Dunkel as well. I just realized that we never received a ballot for the contest, strange. Probably just a small oversig...

Wheat beers for sure, I agree with DukeofYork. Hacker-Pschorr has become a favourite for many people I've tried to introduce to the world of beer, does anyone NOT like a refreshing wheat beer? Wunderweisse remains my top pick still, wish it were more readily available.....maybe McAulsan Ambroise Pal...

I'd be happy to know where this may be showing up as well....I have a weakness for the Rogue Chocolat stout and have recently been enjoying the chocolate cherry stout from Black Oak......wonder how this compares?

I have to admit C'est What is a fantastic place, albeit I have not been for months. I used to work just around the corner (and just above the Bier Markt), so it was a common hangout. Will have to visit again soon. I'd usually have a bison burger or cajun chicken fingers with a few pints of whatever ...

Hell again, So to follow up, the Rodenbach did suffer the same fate as the Rochefort 10. I had to leave for 10 minutes, and when I returned the sour vinegar smell overwhelmed me as I approached the glass, and I couldn't bare to take another 3 sips (only 2). So whatever, who cares really? I found a b...
