Innis & Gunn Lager Beer with Dan & Ryan

Aw yeah aw yeah! An entirely new Innis & Gunn! Available both as part of the Summer Mixed Pack AND as a tallboy, this beer represents a change for Innis & Gunn (at least in terms of what we have available in Ontario), as this is not barrel-aged or conditioned with wood. This is a […]

Innis & Gunn Toasted Oak IPA with Dan & Ryan

The first out of the Summer Mixed Pack, the Innis & Gunn Toasted Oak IPA! Always great to see a new Innis & Gunn. There’s a nice amount of information on the website, like that this is wheat malt with a specific kind of hops (I don’t know hops). It also mentions that this isn’t […]

Innis & Gunn Irish Whiskey Finish with Dan & Ryan

Sometimes St Paddy’s Day is actually St Paddy’s Week, because we love to reinforce European ethnic stereotypes whenever and wherever possible. And what better way to lower liver function as a celebration of Irish culture than with a Scottish beer? Scottish beer that’s finished in Irish whiskey casks, that is.  iScotch loves Innis & Gunn […]

Seventh Beer Of Christmas: Muskoka Winter Beard Double Chocolate Cranberry Stout with Ryan, Goran & Dan

DERP I PUT IT IN A BIG SHINY BOX. I’m now making the ‘gimme money’ hand motion. $13.95 is a lot of money for one beer, even if it is fancy. Muskoka Brewery, out of Bracebridge, is another independent local brewery success story, now selling across Ontario through the local liquor monopoly, and in several […]

Second Beer Of Christmas: Fuller’s Vintage Ale with Dan & Ryan

DERP I PUT IT IN A BOX. More money please. You can see our last post for our true feelings on extra packaging, but it certainly does help to signify… uh… more effort in marketing. And an increase in price. There’s a lot of shit in boxes at the liquor store right now. But this […]

Innis & Gunn Oloroso Cask with Dan, Goran & Ryan

SURPRISE! we found a sherry-casked beverage that doesn’t suck! (*) note to daily readers or at-work binge readers, this is not the other new beer from the Collection 2013. Oloroso is one of those geographically-specific, european sort-of wines, like Port, Sauterne, Madeira, etc, so it is meant to impart a very specific addition to whatever […]

Innis & Gunn Bourbon Stout with Goran

So, uh… don’t get mad, but I confused the Treacle Porter in this year’s collection with the Winter Treacle Porter we already reviewed and just enjoyed it without writing anything down or thinking about taste notes or you people. Sorry. We’re gonna grab some more kits and do that but it’ll be in a bit, […]

Innis & Gunn Strong Beer Collection 2013

Dudes and dudettes, it’s that time of year again! NO NOT THAT TIME IT’S STILL NOVEMBER. ffs. It’s the new Innis & Gunn Collection time! Head’s up, I can’t give you the LCBO link because they haven’t updated their website and are still showing 2011’s kit for 2011’s price. In this kit you get: a […]

Radical Road Canny Man Scotch Cask Aged Beer with Dan, Ryan & Goran

Picked up these two bottles of Radical Road Canny Man scotch whisky cask aged beers.  Radical Road’s web presence seems to be limited to a Twitter account, so I can’t give you much more info than that they’re from Toronto.  What scotch barrels they’ve aged their beer in would be good to know. As beer […]

Maker’s Mark Aged Beyond The Pale with Trevor & Steph (part 3 of An Evening Beyond The Pale)

Part 3 of 3! Yay, finishing something! Take THAT, high school guidance counselor! Anyway, we’re wrapping up An Evening Beyond The Pale with, well, the whole point of this exercise.  I mean we’ve saved the best for last! I wanted to taste and review the cask aged beers because I tend to love cask aged […]

Beyond The Pale with Trevor & Steph

Okay, so this review is actually three reviews.  Or five.  Or one review interrupted part-way through with another review.  It’ll all make sense as you read it. Beyond the Pale is an Ottawa-local brewer, sitting in the quickly-gentrifying Hintonburg neighborhood and selling their wares out of their store front (LCBO/Beer Store being a royal pain […]
