- Greg C. is drinking a Hickson Porter Baltique by Brasserie Les 2 Frères at King & Dufferin2016 bottle. A bit oxidized but it works with the strong & malty beer. Dark caramel, coffee, burnt hazelnut, warm finish.
- Greg C. is drinking a 100th Meridian Organic Amber Lager by Mill Street Brewery at King & DufferinI agree with my assessment of the pre-organic version in Nov - it’s not as flavourful as in its early days. Perhaps even less so now.
- Greg C. is drinking a Bumo (Version IV) by Burdock at King & DufferinNotes of red wine, cherry wood, fruit gums, elegant funk. Pretty special stuff.
- Greg C. is drinking a Peach Uber by Nickel Brook Brewing Co. at King & DufferinMy lack of enthusiasm for peach beverages makes this my least favourite Uber. But that said, it’s still a very good sour. Just not my thing.
- Greg C. is drinking a Shirley Street Sorbet Sour by Lot 30 Brewers at King & DufferinUsually not a fan of the strawberry-kiwi combo, but it works very well here. Vanilla also gives a nice balance to the lemony sourness.
