BrewDog's Rip Tide stout. Pretty good stuff!
You can get it at Premier Wine & Spirits in Halifax.

enjoying the blog.

I am very curious to try some of the brews. How do you get them? I know that there have been a couple of attempts to develop a beer of the month club in Canada but it never seems to get off the ground.

Hey, alandla, thanks again.
I get them when we go to the mainland, or I sometimes get a relative who I know will be over there and coming here to get them for me. In general, I check out NB and NS's liquor commission sites to see what's new. Better than them, though, for a unique variety, is Halifax's store called Premier Wine & Spirits (as well as the Garrison, Granite, and Propeller breweries). There's a link to their site (which has a "live" catalog on it) on my site.

I just typed up the review for one I had in the last week in a new glass... it's available on PEI, but the glass isn't. Enjoy!

I try to keep up with the NBLC & NSLC sites and frequent the Moncton liquor store fairly often (or have relatives that bring me something when they come home).

I used to live in Halifax for 3 years and miss it terribly when I see a review of a craft beer but I don't get over very often at all anymore.

I have found the Port of Wines store to be lacking in beer (I tend to stick to Scotch & Tequila when I'm in) but I haven't been to the Premier Wine & Spirits store on Dresden Row. It's funny that I haven't been in because I'm sure that I would have passed it on my way to the Clyde Street liquor store :)

I'll have to have a look when I'm over next time.

I posted a comment on the Innis & Gunn but it doesn't seem to be sticking, FYI.

I tried to use the anonymous profile since I don't have an account with the other options.

Weird... thanks for trying, anyway.
I checked the blog and it isn't sitting, waiting for moderation or anything like that. You could try again or just email me the comment if you wanted it in there!

I had the Rum Cask I&G the other night. Review to be posted soon!

I love Pumphouse beer but to truly appreciate it you have to get it on tap at the restaurant in Moncton

I could see that... I prefer Picaroon's brews to Pump House's, if we're talking NB stuff here.

Speaking "locally available", though, here's another one we can actually get here.

I've reviewed a few winter / seasonal brews lately that would be great for some Christmas refreshment. If you get a chance to try any of them... enjoy.
Merry Christmas!

Just posted a review of an available-on-PEI beer.
There have been lots of new beer posts since the last update here... including some shots of what's going to get reviewed in the near future.

Went to the Pilot House last night to get some eats and semi-formally test their beer.
Results @ http://peibeerguy.blogspot.com/2011/01/pilot-house.html

Be sure to vote in my poll... I'm curious as to what people think, review-wise.

Just wanted to bring to your attention a pretty cool show called "Brew Masters" on Eastlink cable channel 126 Discovery Science Canada.

It's back on? Sweet! I had seen the show was going to be on, then couldn't find it. Then I found it... and then it was gone. Haven't seen an episode yet. Apparently Discovery has played with its schedule / show times. It's based on/by the Dogfish Head brewery in the States.

As a side note, Garrison released a new pilsner yesterday, this year's Ol' Fog Burner today, and a limited run of 500 bottles of Ol' Fog Burner that was aged in Glenora barrels for eleven months. Can't wait to get my lips on those when I make it over in March!

I'm heading to Nicaragua next month. If you're ineterested I can bring a beer or two back for review...they arent known to be very flavourful nor great, but I love them in the heat. Not really an great beers by any stretch, but if interested just for the sake of trying it and reviewing for the blog, then I can do it. Pretty typical Latine American beer. Tona and Victoria are the two popular ones.

Of course, the real nica treat is the Flor De Cana rum!!!

Nicaragua!
I must say I've never had any beer (or rum) from there. If you've got the space and it isn't too expensive (for you to start or for me to reimburse you), I'd definitely try them or anything from the travels of others (I should really put a spreadsheet of the beers I've had on my blog).
What's the cost of the rum like down there? I would take an extra beer (for a friend who'll be getting those Garrison beers for me, as a gift), and maybe even a rum (for a cousin and I to share... rum's my second fave, and he's a rum pro of sorts).
PM me back if you'd rather.

Well - the beer is almost nothing. Maybe a buck each for singles. For rum, the price varies. My favorite is the 7 year, which is a dark amber with lots of flavour. Good with a mix, but nice on the rocks. It runs around 7 dollars for 750 ml. There's also a 12, 18, and 21 years which are a little more expensive. I can't remember the prices on those. The 21 year was rated on of the top 10 spirits in the world. I think I paid 40 or 50 for 750. But to be honest - the seven year amber is still my favorite. A few beer I can fit in luggage for sure. Rum is a little more difficult because of duty limitations (I stock up when Im down there) but it may be possible since there are a few non drinkers coming with me.

Theres also a 4 year white (about 4 dollars/750ml) and a 5 yr amber (about 5 bucks).

Flor de Cana is available in most of canada but is a lot more expensive than in Nica. I dont think I've ever seen Nica beer here though.

Again, its more a functional beer than a beautiful one. Very light and served so cold there is sometimes ice on it. Perfect for the heat.

Hey, senor Arsenault.
I checked the beers out, and you're right... the reviews are pretty "meh". I'm always up for new stuff, though, especially from a country I've never had something from. I don't want to weigh you down... your offer of a couple different ones would be great. We'll settle up whenever you get back. If you do have some space, I'd take an extra bottle of the Victora for a friend who goes out of his way to get me stuff, & one of those white or 7-year Flor de Canas. So... like, $7 - 10? :lol:
