Howe Sound King Heffy imperial hefeweizen is very good. Packs a punch at 7.7% but still very drinkable.

I've had Tin Whistle Peach Cream Ale and Old Yale D.O.Ale and Bridge Brewing Hopilano IPA over the past days.

Tin Whistle - beautifully natural peachy aroma, heavily carbonated, and strong peach flavour/sweetness that overpowers any other flavours. Would I say I enjoyed it? Yes. It was something very different to drink on a very hot day. Would I buy it again? No. Would I recommend you buy it? Not unless you fucking love fruit beers. Out of a bomber. 6/10... because the peach flavour was well executed, even if its way unbalanced.

Old Yale - classical brown ale, extremely well done. The coffee, butterscotch, and chocolate notes were very apparent, but not powerful, and exceptionally well balanced. Would I say I enjoyed it? Yes, my friends did too. Would I buy it again? Yes. Would I recommend you buy it? Yes, if you like brown ales, or just because D.O.A. is one of the greatest bands to ever come out of Vancouver. Out of a bomber. 8/10.

Bridge - I had this six days ago, so my memory of it's faded a bit. It was a very good, subtle, balanced IPA. It was not hopped like Fat Tug or Amnesiac or Hoparazzi, thankfully. The big hop IPAs aren't for every occasion. Would I say I enjoyed it? Yes. Would I buy it again? I will. Would I recommend you buy it? Definitely. On draft at St. Augustine's. 8.75/10.

10 Types of Beer Glasses to Complement Your Beer

Quote:
If you are an aspiring beer expert, the topic of beer glasses has no doubt crossed your mind at some point. When you envisioned the perfect beer setup in your home, what type of glasses did you think about?

There is a wide variety of beer glassware available to you, and they each have their own unique characteristics. In fact, some glassware is designed specifically to help preserve the foam head of your beer, while others are designed to help enhance the colors of your brew. Itís important to remember that itís more than just a glass that holds your beer; itís a delivery mechanism that brings out the unique flavors, colors and aroma of your brew.
My personal favourite is the Snifter. Delirium Tremens is served in one

I got a variety of beer glasses in a boxed set as a gift from the groom as I was in a recent wedding party. Never really thought about how the shape could effect how a beer tastes until I read the box. It tells you which glass is best for certain types of beer. I thought it was a great gift..

My gf surprised me with an assorted beer glass set as well, very cool. I too like the tulip glass/snifter.

Currently drinking.. Hop Therapy Double IPA, coming in at 100 IBU and 9%. Tastes like neither, I've had Imperial IPA's and other DIPA's that are much more potent and full ...maybe I'll let this warm up a bit.

Went to a beershare last month. So awesome. This was a few hours into it.




As an aside, recent beers I've been drinking..



All time favourite..


Picked up from TotalWine in Bellevue, WA

^ yummm... very nice.

My current go-to is Hoperation Tripel Cross. Great value and taste; $4.95 for a bomber at 7.1%. Nice fruity Belgian, not too heavy IPA.

The beer label sticker canvas is awesome; how do you peel it off the bottle?

Nice, I have that in the fridge waiting as well. I have a bunch of 'older' IPA's that I'm trying to drink my way through as I don't want them sitting around for too long.

As for the canvas, she said she would soak the bottles in hot water, and most of the labels come off. Elysian ones are very easy to peel off. A little boxcutter helps to scrape as well. The new Phillips one are NOT, they're paper based and will disintegrate.

I went to the local beer store to buy a can of beer, but ended walking out with a case (12) of Sleeman's Lager. They're giving a 32oz stein with purchase. It has thick walls, and weighs 3 pounds.

My local beer store recently had a promotion that offered 32oz Molson Canadian boot mugs. I somewhat shamefully admit, I stood and pondered purchasing 12 Canadians for several minutes merely to have that ridiculous mug. Maturity prevailed, and I left with a several bottles of Fat Tug.

I'm a sucker for glassware. However, I've culled my collection, and I will only go for the deal if it's embossed or unique in some way, now. I think I would have drank the swill for a mug shaped like a boot. Which store is this, and do they still have this promo?

The Gov Signature store in Abbotsford. I saw them last Saturday.

I suspect the Langley Signature store would have them, too.

I looked on Amazon (briefly) and to buy a Das Boot outright costs roughly the same as buying a case of Molson with a Das Boot. Hmmm...

no boot or stein at Richmond ackyroyd government liquor store

Did pick up a Fat Tug though, hadn't had it in awhile, and I must say, damn it is good.

I've got two of those boot mugs. But they made us buy a 24 pack in order to get one

This is still my favourite brew:

I bought that 3 back with the chalice at Firefly on Cambie St a couple of months ago. Good stuff. I think I paid like $20.

I've only had Fat Tug once and as much as I like its taste profile, it is a sleeper beer. It did me over after just one.

Molson Canadian is literally undrinkable. I reluctantly opened one today (friend was given six as a tip), took a sip, awful, and stubbornly took another sip, but it was as bloody awful as the last one. At that point, I gave it away. I drink Cariboo regularly, and I'll drink a Budweiser, Kokanee, or Coors enjoyably, but Canadian is a step too far.
