Monday Wrap-up, November 12th 2012, Great Lakes and The Only Cafe

The silicone chip inside her head/ gets flipped to overload. Hey, how was your weekend?  Mine was great thanks.  Pretty full, but we’ll deal with that in a moment. I know it seems strange, given that November is normally a down month, but my golly, there was a lot going on last week. Home-brewer of the Year? Don’t know if you heard about this or not, but a home-brewer was just re-elected President of the United States.  I predict Obama will celebrate by brewing an APA called “Magic Underpants Pale”.  It will be 6%, feature Liberty hops, and have a picture of a newlywed gay couple lighting a joint on the label.  You heard it first here.

Wellington Brewing Russian Imperial Stout Sorbet

Wellington Russian Imperial Stout Sorbet

When you think summer, a few tasty treats pop to mind. For me, the hot weather definitely increases my desire for ice cream and beer, among other things.  So why not combine these wonderful fancies?  Well, no shortage of people will bang on about the virtues of the Guinness Float (or really, any stout).  I won’t lie, rich vanilla ice cream pairs remarkably well with smokey dry English/Irish stout.  It also does very well with boozy charred imperial stouts that have hints of rum and toffee in them.  I’ve never been a huge fan, myself, especially as the ice cream melts, but if that’s your tipple, go right ahead. You know how I’ve been doing “stuff in beer”, like fruits….  [Read More]

Pan-Ontario Whiskey Barrel Aged — Beau’s, Flying Monkeys, Grand River, Great Lakes and Wellington

Pan-Ontario Whiskey Barrel Aged

Phew, long enough title?  So Pan-Ontario is actually a bottle from OCB Week, and I beer I drank at Session, but I got a bottle of it last time I was by Great Lakes.  A blended beer organized and aged by Beau’s, to celebrate some of the finest brews in the province.  So to be clear, this is not a collaborative brew, wherein a few brewers got together and made a recipe, this is five beers, made normally, then blended into a cocktail, and aged in a whiskey barrel.  With me?  Good. So what beers, you might ask?  Good question. Beau’s provided Beaver River IPeh; Flying Monkeys their Smashbomb Atomic IPA; Grand River did their Curmudgeon IPA, Great Lakes hooked….  [Read More]

    Chris SchryerI regularly describe myself as an "ardent supporter of beer", which pretty well sums it up. While I'm not working or busy being a husband and dad (okay, honestly, sometimes while I'm doing those things), I am drinking beer, attending events, visiting pubs, and thinking about beer. I work at Castro's Lounge, my local bar in the Beach, where I host beer events and take part in most things beer-related.
