With that couple of bottles I just posted I also grabbed a bottled of Black Sheep and a bottle of Sam Smiths's organic ale. Great stuff.

Is Thornbridge a newer ale? I grew up in Yorkshire, but I don't remember it.

And the important question, do they export it?

Edit> I looked them up, and apparently they do come to Canada. The Halcyon IPA is highly rated.

Hoegaarden reminds me of the way Thrills gum tastes. Anyone remember that purple, chiclet like gum that tastes like soap/aftershave?

I'm not a fan of Hoegaarden, as it does taste like aftershave. However, I highly recommend Kroenburg Blanc. It's a citrusy wit that is so good it's addictive. I'd call it a summer beer, but wouldn't turn it down any time of the year.

Having a bottle of this to kick of the Christmas season. From Surrey, BC, no less. Not bad...

Nice! I stumbled upon it at Biercraft one night and it was delicious indeed. I'd say one of my favourites.

It is commonly accepted that you should never go food shopping when you are hungry. You hunger tends encourage puchases that you would not commonly make.

I use the same logic when I go to purchase beer. I try to have about 8 before entering and making purchases.

To what I can remember, it has worked in the past. ;)

Edmonton has the mighty Sherbrooke Liquor for beer lovers, they stock over 600 different beers in the cooler. It can be overwhelming to pick a few and only a few. I went in for a six pack yesterday and ended up spending $93.

Ha! Been there, done that, got the dirty look from the wife!

I was here a few weeks ago:


160 beers on tap and good food too. My only small complaint was the large number of IPAs - German wheat beer is more my thing - but I bravely persevered with a few of the hoppier local brews and survived the experience.
