- Greg C. is drinking a Witch's Hat by The Second Wedge Brewing Co. at King & DufferinHas everything expected - fairly sweet dark malt to start, roasty middle, piney hops to finish - but lacks spark to go from good to great.
- Greg C. is drinking a 11.05 Tripel (2016) by Sawdust City Brewing Co. at King & DufferinSurprisingly bright & fruity for its age, with lots of pineapple character. Funk is there, but mild and secondary. Really lovely!
- Greg C. is drinking a Harvest Brett Farmhouse Ale by Rainhard Brewing at King & DufferinBeautifully nuanced Brett character, more fruity than funky, but with a slightly medicinal backnote that adds some complexity. Underrated.
- Greg C. is drinking an Operation Snowplow (Ides of December 2016) by Henderson Brewing Co at King & DufferinNice notes of vanilla, cherry, licorice & mild warming spice in the finish. Held up very well to an unintentional year of aging.
- Greg C. is drinking a Lone Prime Original IPA by Sawdust City Brewing Co. at King & DufferinCrystal malt gives it a telltale barley tea sweetness & dark amber body, but there are plenty of bittering hops to balance. Nice throwback!
