What I'm really after though is a scrumpy, farmhouse kind of cider. The cloudy sorta stuff from scratch that I used to have on hand in England. I think I'd have to build a press and buy like a thousand pounds of apples to get it done. Needless to say, I haven't.

But I'm dying to do it some year...eventually.

    Just call a farm and ask them to press the apples for you, that's what I do. You end up with a reasonable approximation of scrumpy. You can also just use store bought cider instead of juice.

    Just finished a Deesko! By 3 Floyd's. A Berliner style Wiese. Wasn't expecting a mouth puckering tartness/borderline sour, but my mouth enjoyed it.

    I have only one stout left from my Chicago haul of 3 Floyd's, but I'd have to say they've become one of my favorite breweries. Now how do I get my fix from Ontario?

    You go back. That's the only way to do it. Amazing brewery, I've never had anything from them that was anything less than outstanding. Their special releases are downright ridiculous. Christmas porter with prickly pear? Delicious, it turns out.

    Berliner Wiese is one of the most sour styles there is. Traditionally they're basically acid, but served with a fruit or herbal syrup on the side so you can mix to your taste.

    It's no Pliny the Elder, but I'm happy that I was able to pick up some Sartori Harvest yesterday after work. It sold out in under an hour at the more popular bottle shops in Vancouver.

    Word is they changed the hops this year. You like it this time around?

    I've just been drinking my homebrew harvest. It doesn't last very long, so I don't have time to dedicate to commercial variants.

    Now that you mention it, it does have a crisper hop profile (more IPA like and less malty) , but I chalked that up to freshness and drinking from the bottle...

    I think it's less hoppy. Less piney. But I agree it is also less sweet malty. Has more of a grassy taste


    So not just a really fresh tasting tom's.

    Nothing special out right now in those styles. For IPAs look for headstock or Lone Pine. For sours.... Uh.... You might find a nickel brook Berliner Weiss, I guess. Not much out there. The special beer around right now is the seven boroughs porter, which is a nice Bourbon barrel beer.

    Do you know where you're going? There are a few other things out there but you'll only find them in like two or three bars.

    I'd hit up Bar Hop, barvolo, Bellwoods, or any other cool beer bar. No specific plans of yet.

    And I've had both Headstock & Lone Pine in cans. Bigger fan of Headstock though.

    Ah, then you're in good hands. You might find some one-offs that are worthwhile. I'll check the barhop and volo lists later and let you know if there's anything on. If you're lucky, the new barhop location will open this weekend.

    If you feel like dropping some coin, volo just got some Jester King and Del Ducato sours in bottles that are excellent.

    Volo has a few things:

    - Trou Du Diable L'Ours <-- I've had this be amazing and I've had it be so-so. Maybe ask for a taste before committing to a pint.
    - Nickelbrook Raspberry Berliner
    - Stone City Peach Don't Kill My Vibe <-- this one is awesome. Try this one.
    - West Ave Rhubarberliner <-- a cider, but an awesome tart one.
    - Sawdust City Coriolis Effect <-- A better Berliner than the regular Nickelbrook Uber, but the Raspberry Uber has raspberries.

    Then there's the local 7 Gose and the Maverick and Gose which are both alright. Not much there for hoppy stuff. If you like session pales, citradiction is alright. I've heard good things about the IPAs Rainhard make, but never tried them personally.

    Peche Mortel is a coffee RIS that is fucking amazing, if you're in to that sort of thing. One of the best beers made in Canada.

    Barhop haven't released their list in a while. They normally do on Thursdays, so we'll see if they update it today.

    I've noticed that berliner weisses seem to be the trendy style in TO these days.

    - Trou Du Diable L'Ours <-- I've had this be amazing and I've had it be so-so. Maybe ask for a taste before committing to a pint.
    - Nickelbrook Raspberry Berliner
    - Stone City Peach Don't Kill My Vibe <-- this one is awesome. Try this one.
    - West Ave Rhubarberliner <-- a cider, but an awesome tart one.
    - Sawdust City Coriolis Effect <-- A better Berliner than the regular Nickelbrook Uber, but the Raspberry Uber has raspberries.

    Then there's the local 7 Gose and the Maverick and Gose which are both alright. Not much there for hoppy stuff. If you like session pales, citradiction is alright. I've heard good things about the IPAs Rainhard make, but never tried them personally.

    Peche Mortel is a coffee RIS that is fucking amazing, if you're in to that sort of thing. One of the best beers made in Canada.

    Barhop haven't released their list in a while. They normally do on Thursdays, so we'll see if they update it today.


    I'd rep ya but someone hasn't fixed the fucking rep system around here.

    I've noticed that berliner weisses seem to be the trendy style in TO these days.

    I've had Peche Mortel many times. It's even better when you leave it for a year.


    Looks like the Stone City is off the list now. Bummer:

    I was at Stone City this afternoon, they didn't have any of it either. They did have their 100lb wet hop India pale Ale which was okay, and I picked up a 32oz of single handed galaxy pale ale for later. The Iron Lion extra stout was decent as well.

    Had a very mediocre Lagunitas IPA at beer bistro. And a solid Boneshaker at Rum Exchange.

    Lagunitas IPA is mediocre IMO, I prefer Lil sumpin sumpin or Maximus.

    The single handed is nice, light and refreshing citrusy pine tree. Would've been a great summer beer...

    None of the American IPAs that landed in Ontario this year have been particularly great. I wish we could get Alesmith IPA, that shit is amazing. In a sane world we would at least have Flower Power, since it's made nearby.

    Not a big fan of flower power either. I wish they'd bring in Bell's Two Hearted and DFH 90 min. I'd drink those regularly, otherwise I happy with the smattering of various IPA's I can get in Watertown.

    I normally love Lagunitas IPA. It is the beer that made me a hothead. I think the one I had today was old.

    Bellwoods Roman Candle IPA is fantastic but I'll take Blood Brothers The Inner IPA over it.

    Brewdog Punk IPA went down well yesterday. As did Noble Craft Lager, which isn't so crafty as much as labelled as such by Greene King. Nice, though. Fruity nose and flavour. Just a little hop zing on the end. The third and fourth were as good as the first.

    Pretty happy with my case of smuttynose Finest Kind IPA, now available at the beer store.

    Looking forward to the return of Lake Effect to the LCBO.

    Drinking a Beau's / Gigantic Le Formidable Belgian IPA. Best beer I've had from Vankleek Hill. Not amazing but really solid.

    Indeed.

    The 6s and 8s are very drinkable if one doesn't wanna get drunk in the first period of a game.
