Granville Island Brewing has released a tasty new dark porter made with JJ Bean coffee and cocoa nibs. A little bit of roasty bitterness and a bit of chocolatey richness all finished with a hint of caramel. Nice and cozy!
Here is a wine to sink your teeth into. Big and juicy with an interesting hint of woodsy and smokey character. This is a good pairing with all sorts of hearty fare.
Here is a big barrel aged Belgian brew from Category 12 Brewing. The barrel is bourbon, of course, which is strongly represented in the flavor. Also, notes of dark fruit, sweet vanilla, and coffee show throughout, along with hints of candied sugar and clove. Has a lovely complexity with something new to offer in every […]
It has been a while, but we have some new Ontario beer! Beau’s All Natural Brewing prides itself on using organic ingredients to make high quality beers. There is a rye pale lagered ale. Sounds like a mouthfeel but we’re sure it is delicious! They also have a patersbier, which is a style of beer […]
Well, don’t these just look lovely. Coming in on opposite ends of the spectrum, they both have a lot to offer. Steel & Oak has done a blonde ale brewed with Ethiopian coffee beans, where the mild biscuity character of the malt helps to really bring the nuances of the beans to the forefront. Dageraad […]
A spectacular new brew from the guys formerly known as Machine Ales. They have reincarnated as Superflux Beer Company! We are very excited about this one. This is the kind of IPA we dream about. Unfiltered so nothing of the greatness gets lost. It is soft, with lots of tropical fruit notes and a touch […]
For this one Twin Sails Brewing teamed up with Parallel 49 Brewing to give us a big and boozy triple IPA. A wonderful combo of Mosaic, Citra and Simcoe hops make this a fruity and dangerously drinkable brew. How ’bout that!?
For those of you who love big juicy reds, these wines from Line 39 out of California will be right up your alley. The Petite Sirah is big and intense with notes of dark fruit and oak. Great for paring with red meat. The Pinot Noir has a rich fruity quality with slight herbal notes. […]
Make some space in your cellars folks! You are going to want to fit one of these big and boisterous barley wines from Driftwood Brewery. Expect it to only get better with time.
Looks like Trading Post Brewing does bombers now too. The first is a style that is becoming a BC classic, the lovely Brett IPA! The perfect blend of fruity and hoppy. The other is a dark mild. Expect it to be a hint roasty, yet smooth and sessionable.
