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

Fourth Beer Of Christmas: Unibroue 17 Grande Réserve with Matt, Ryan, Dan & Goran

The Fourth Beer Of Christmas. If you’re following our instructions and working your way through this list on Christmas Day, then you’re about to be fully lubricated for the Airing Of Grievances. No, YOU listen, damnit! The Grande Réserve is a Unibroue beer, part of the Sapporo beverage corporation through their Sleaman’s label. It’s an

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

First Beer Of Christmas: St Ambroise Russian Impériale Stout 2013 with Dan, Laura & Ryan

We’re a week away from Christmas and we’ve got a backlog of dark beer reviews for you, so we’ll call this happy coincidence our Seven Beers of Christmas and give you a bunch of them in a row! Good stick-to-your-ribs winter beverages coming up. Today we’ve got the St Ambroise Russian Impériale Stout for 2013.

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

Innis & Gunn Original in a can

Let’s call this a PSA. Loyal readers will know I’m a big fan of most of Innis & Gunn’s cask-aged beer.  I think they were the first non-whisk(e)y thing I posted about on the site, because they taste great.  But they’ve always been a little expensive, clocking in at around $60.00 for a case of

Finally! The Innis & Gunn 6 Pack

File this under “about goddamned time” – Innis & Gunn finally realized that a bag of bottles is not a classy way to take their product home and have put out a 6 pack.  Only found Original so far, but maybe they’ll make another sampler pack with me having to wait until Christmas.  You can
