never tried any of their IPAs because I don't really like IPAs in general but everything else is on point... fat tire, blue paddle, somersault, jubelale, etc

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_and_Tan
scroll to the half & half section. order one of them. depending on the competency of the pub/bartender, try something that will layer. getting a botched black and tan is especially crushing, if not even just for the lack of 'wow' in the murky mess in contrast to the... contrast of a legitimate layering.


I rarely drink beer anymore. If I do, it's something light like Steamwhistle, Granville island, Asahi, or PBR(on the cheap). During BBQ season I tend to grab craft singles every now and again, but I don't think I could name a specific one. At bars I have the tendency to put too much faith in the bartenders ability and end up with glowing green Tom Collins(bar lime? usrs?), or a bright red Manhattan(made with Canadian 'Rye', puke)

ask for a black castle, or a black and tan. guinness poured over new castle, or bass. Pretty solid, especially if ur not yet big into good brews.

i Had a couple of these the other night. Pretty damn good.
And I also had some of a laguintas imperial stout or ipa. It was kinda sweet and fruity.

very good ale. for a 9.2% beer, you don't taste the alcohol. Plum, grape flavors and notable yeast on the bottom. i'd like to try the Rochefort 10 and St Bernardus abt 12 next.

Revive.

What's everyone drinking these days? What did you try over the summer? Favourite breweries and shit...?


I've turned into a straight sucker for hops, which leads me to drinking lots of IPAs, Belgian IPAs, Imperial PAs, Double and Triple IPAs and what not, but as of late I've been opening the palette to maltier beers and spiced/flavoured offerings.

Mostly limited to Ontario and Quebec beers in these parts, but I get some Eastern US and BC beers from time to time. I try and make an effort to grab at least one international offering every time I go to the liquor store.

Goto beers:
Amsterdam Boneshaker IPA
Muskoka Mad Tom IPA
Great Lakes Brewery Audrey Hopburn Belgian IPA
Dieu du Ciel Derneire Volonte Belgian IPA
Spearhead Hawaiian Style Pale Ale
Beau's Lugtread Lagered Ale
Innis & Gunn Canadian Cherrywood Aged Ale
Rogue Dead Guy Ale
Nickel Brook Headstock IPA
Amsterdam Natural Blonde
Muskoka Summer Weiss
Granville Island Pale Ale
Flying Monkeys Smashbomb Atomic IPA

Recently enjoyed:
Ommegang Hennepin
Muskoka Harvest Ale 
Block 3 Sugar Bush
Church Key Holy Smoke
Amsterdam Spring Bock
Amsterdam Oranje Weisse
Great Lakes Breweries Miami Weiss
Houblon Choufee
Unibroue Maudite
La Trou du Diable Shawnigan Handshake
Beau's Night Marzen

There's a lot more, but the list already seems 10 beers too long.

If anyone is into trades, I'm interested in any Dogfish Head IPAs or Stone IPAs, or even the Dieu du Ciel collaborations . Ontario has a number of amazing crafts available, although I'm not sure of their availability in the US. If anything, you'd probably want to get some of our seasonals.

Good bump. I'd like to contribute to this thread a bit more, but I really haven't been trying new things. Bud Light has basically been it for months now. 

However, I really do enjoy the seasonal's from Late September - Late November. 

Blue Moon Harvest Pumpkin Ale
Dogfish Head Pumpkin' Ale

I even just enjoy Samuel Adams Octoberfest. This is my favorite time of the year as far as seasonal beers go. 


Edit: I'd be down to make some trades with you 99% later on in the month. 

I prefer carcinogens to endorphins.

I picked up a Renaissance Imperial Pale Ale today, it's from NZ. They have a whole line of Renaissance PAs, English, American, and India at the LCBO I went to today. As for Aussie, I've never checked. Anything to keep my eyes open for?


And REVS, I'm down for a trade. Probably could do a Oktoberfest/Pumpkin/Harvest trade given the season. I'll get you a list of the better ones available. Maybe we can set up a winter trade too, we get some solid winter brews out of Ontario.

If anyone knows the laws about shipping beer, it'd help. I'm down to mislabel, but liquid is heavy, so it creates suspicion at the border I'd imagine. From what I've read, USPS/Canada Post are easier than UPS/FedEx

Ballast Point Sculpin IPA, Green Flash West Coast IPA, and a lot of stuff from Southern California the Ballast has been my favorite for some time now.
