Have fun, that place is awesome. Have you ever been to the Brick Store Pub in Decatur?
Unicorns ARE awesome. Paired with ninjas and it gets scary
Teein' Off on Links
That Bellwoods I mentioned currently has two collabs on tap one with Evil Twin and one with Trou du Diable.
This list will give you a good idea of the Canadian beer scene

I've been to Decatur but not the Brick Store. Trying to plan an afternoon over there. This'll be my second trip to The Porter. Easily the best par I've ever been to, at leat as far as selection goes.
This is Troof i have never had one without a ninja involved.
Sarah sorry about the Herpes.
I remember going to NYC for New Year's Eve 1997. I bought a 6 of Becks and it cost me $15. At the time, I could buy Beck's at any store in CA and it was $7.99 at the most. In NYC everything is expensive - cost of living. On the other hand, you live in an awesome city.
Going to brew up a single hop Chinook IPA today. Calculated at 6.8% and 75 ibu.
Brew time beers: 8 Wired The Big Smoke and Anchor Steam
Had Harviestoun Ola Dubh 12 and Phillips Amnesiac DIPA earlier today.
I'm drinking Avery India Pale Ale tonight. Pretty damn good for a regular 'ole IPA.
Those Ola Dubh are great. Was talking to my beer guys dad about the 30 year he had in a brooklyn bar the week after they did beerfest in the march time. I'll try and get the name of the place again for our terp buddy prices are high during the event but the left over beer is cheap after that.
I've actually tasted the 30, not a bottle just a taster. Perks of sharing your Femme Fatale Brett with connected beer people. The whisky is subtle in the 12, and pretty big in the 30s finish. Got a lot of worcestershire and a bit of smoke in the 12s aroma.

He said during the event it was 6 for 4 oz the next week it was 4 for 12 oz out of firken.
$4 for a bottle essentially, that's damn cheap even though its the most reasonable price of the bunch to begin with
Yeah i have had 12 16 18 and so far the 12 has been more to my liking.
Not my style. Bought a six pack a few months back and wasn't a fan. Friends of mine drink it like water.
The use of crystal 120 in IPAs is not very common as far as I know. Not saying that your objection just noteworthy.
Is that[crystal120] the hop used?
I've had crystal beers Ioved. Crystal Hero by Revolution just a month ago. It was amazing.
Maybe a different variety?
As a brewer, please break it down. I'm starting to get into home brewing.
"Crystal malts are prepared separately from pale malts. They are high-nitrogen malts that are wetted and roasted in a rotating drum before kilning. They produce strongly sweet toffee-like flavors and are sufficiently converted that they can be steeped without mashing to extract their flavor. Crystal malts are available in a range of colors, with darker-colored crystal malts kilned at higher temperatures producing stronger, more caramel-like overtones. Some of the sugars in crystal malts caramelize during kilning and become unfermentable; hence, addition of crystal malt will increase the final sweetness of a beer. They contain no enzymes. ASBC 50-165/EBC 90-320; the typical British crystal malt used in pale ale and bitter is around ASBC 70-80."
If you see a number beside a malt that's its lovibond (L) rating, the higher the number the darker the malt.

The Crystal that he's referring to is a hop variety.
Did you take those in a mirror or do you get that bootleg shit with the backward labels and whatnot up in Canada??
See, I'm a bit of a rookie when it comes to this stuff. Just googled it,not as knowledgable on malts yet as I am on hops.
No just set them in front of the laptop camera and took the shot
I was being a smart ass, you needn't bother with responding to my nonsense.
