Lions Winter Ale — Granville Island Brewing

Lion's Winter Ale — Granville Island Brewing

Bloody hell it’s cold out there.  I know we’re still north of 0*C in Toronto, so it’s only going to get colder, but the morning walk with the Beagle down to the beach was a frosty one.  And while I’m the first person to defend drinking any style of beer, any time of the year, […]

Captivator Doppel Bock — Tree Brewing Co.

Captivator Doppel Bock - Tree Brewing Co.

Okay kids, I hope you’ve all had fun this week.  BC Beer Week has one more kick at the can; at the end of this post, it’s officially OCB Week and we’ll be all Ontario for the next 10 days or so.  But before that, I’m stoked to review another bottle from the Tree Brewery […]

Burley Barley Wine 2008 — Phillips Brewing Co.

Burley Barley Wine — Phillips Brewing Co.

Okay, many apologies.  You’re not finding this one at the LCBO. I’m not even sure how available it is in BC, to be honest.  But it’s still BC Beer Week here, and I’m pretty stoked about this review. It’s a bottle of Burley Barley Wine from 2008, and I must say, I’m really excited to […]

Hop Head Black IPA – Tree Brewing Co.

Hop Head Black IPA - Tree Brewing Co.

And BC beer week just keeps on going. Back to a Tree product (not the last), their highly regarded Hop Head Black IPA.  This stuff sold like crazy in Kelowna where it’s made, and was talked about all over among other places.  Black IPA – or Cascadian Dark Ale – is a fairly newly […]

Ginger Beer – Phillips Brewing Co.

Ginger Beer - Phillips Brewing Co.

BC beer week continues here on the blog (it’s BC beer week, if you missed it).  Next up in line is another one of the better known micros from BC, Phillips Brewing Co.  Keep6 Imports has brought a few Phillips products into Ontario through private orders, so you might have come across, say, their Hop […]

Thirsty Beaver Amber Ale – Tree Brewing Co.

Thirsty Beaver Amber Ale - Tree Brewing Co.

Well, here it is, BC beer week on Toronto Beer Blog.  I had decided last week, given the large amount of BC beer currently available at the LCBO, and also the sexiness of said beer, to do a whole week just on BC brews.  The players we currently have access to here in Ontario are […]

Duke’s Cider – Tree Brewing Co.

Duke's Cider - Fireweed Brewing Co.

One of the new-comers to the LCBO this year, Duke’s Cider is produced by Tree Brewing. From Kelowna BC, Duke’s Cider uses a blend of Okanagan apples in its juice. Last year Duke’s was the number one craft cider in BC. It is on LCBO shelves as of this week, and it won’t surprise anyone […]

Hop Head IPA – Tree Brewing Co.

Hop Head IPA - Tree Brewing Co.

I know we’ve talked about this before, but it’s just a fact:  There are a lot of awesome IPAs from the west coast.  Now I’ll add the usual caveat: I consider anything west of Regina “West Coast”, which makes calling a beer from Tree Brewing out of Kelowna BC, “West Coast”.  I have done this […]

Red Racer IPA – Central City Brewing

Red Racer IPA - Central City Brewing

A lot of people bang on about BC here in Toronto.  The trees are bigger, the people cooler, the air fresher, the sushi better.  You’ve probably heard it.  Lord knows I have.  Not having been west since I was three, I’m really in no place to rebut any of those claims, however, I can certainly […]
