Steel & Oak Flight with Devin & Baby Groot

The pride of New Westminster, Steel & Oak. And who better to enjoy it with than my brother in law Devin and my new nephew Baby Groot! We’ve had a couple Steel & Oaks so far and enjoyed them quite a bit. This is a great local brewery making great local beers. And their tasting

Innis & Gunn Bourbon Cask Dark Ale with Steve

Innis & Gunn Bourbon Cask Dark Ale! A potentially new bottle from the Holiday 4-Pack. Why potentially? Well, because we’re having another classic Innis & Gunn “have I had this before?” moment. We had the Irish Whiskey Finish/Cask discrepancy, and the (Winter) Treacle Porter pair, and now we have this Bourbon Cask Dark Ale v

Innis & Gunn Holiday 4-Pack

This year’s Christmas Pack from Innis & Gunn! Four beers and… a… coaster. Neat! Used to get a proper beer glass for a couple years, then they gave away a honking big bottle opener but… sure, a coaster is nice. I guess. This year’s kit comes with an Original, a Lager, a Bourbon Cask Dark

JP Wiser’s Hopped Whisky (Dark Ale Style) with Dan

JP Wiser’s Hopped Whisky. A tiny sampler attached to the Double Still Rye. I just got called out for hating on Wiser’s in the last review, and this one’s not going to help that perception one bit. We generally don’t like Wiser’s and you can say that makes the review a self-fulfilling prophecy. But we

Steel & Oak Dark Lager with Dan

  Aw yeah, another hand-smuggled interprovincial beer delivery from Devin in BC!  Always appreciated, the beer gift is. We’ve had a Steel & Oak before, their smoked Hefeweizen, which was delicious. Devin brought one of those as well, but that went to simple, unexamined enjoyment. This time out is their Dark Lager. Moderate IBU and

Innis & Gunn Bourbon Dark Ale with Dan

Our last post before Christmas, here’s a solid gift tip: The Innis & Gunn Holiday Pack. You get a heavy duty steel bottle opener and four bottles of beer – Original, Toasted Oak IPA, Rum Finish (review out soon) and this guy, the Bourbon Dark Ale. Part of Innis & Gunn’s Limited Edition range, there’s

Alberta Premium Dark Horse with Davey & Alex

This is our third tango with a product of Beam Suntory’s Alberta Distillers. We’ve had their Premium, which isn’t, and we’ve had their Springs, which made a fantastic rye & ginger. The Dark Horse comes in at a higher abv and budget than the other two; we’ve been meaning to try this for a while. According

Les Trois Mousquetaires Grand Cuvée Weizenbock Dark Wheat Ale with Dan, Ryan & Goran

Christmas beer number one, thanks Jono! This is Quebec’s Les Trois Mousequetaires‘ Grand Cuvée Weizenbock Dark Wheat Ale, which is a lot of words, but it’s a big sweet beer so that’s okay.  If you click that link you’ll see there’s not much to say about LTM’s web presence – it’s a redirect to their Facebook
