Talking beer, brewing, the bar scene, and life in general in Toronto
No Chance With Miranda (barrel) — Great Lakes Brewery — S6 E11
Bit of a short one tonight, as Chris' brain was melting out of his face (again), but this little ep packs a massive punch with an absolutely gorgeous No Chance With Miranda barrel-aged Saison from Great Lakes. And, of course, the requisite discussion of patio reopening and how wonderful that is.
TBP - S6E10 Mixdown
Tonight Chris is joined by a very reluctant co-host in the form of his dog, Ginger. Becuase tonight he's drinking a Summer Stout from Black Lab Brewing, and needed a canine perspective. Ginger bailed, but Chris LOVED this soft/velvety stout with lovely coffee and chocolate notes. There is also a (potentially semi-bro-y) PSA about the value of exercise. Enjoy!
8-Track IPA — Radical Road Brewing — S6 E9
Despite being extra sleepy and dumb-feeling, Chris is sipping an absolute CLASSIC West-Coast IPA from Radical Road Brewing. Big! Piney! Fruity! So good. Also reflecting on the news of the 215 children's bodies discovered on the former residential school in Kamloops, and what settlers should be doing with that news.
Twin Oaks (For Real This Time) — Sawdust City — S6 E8
***Apologies for uplaoding last week's ep again this week***
Oh hot damn! Tonight is a day light, but an absolute BANGER sipping a Sawdust City Twin Oaks Belgian Golden Ale. This beer is full of layers and complexity and just generally awesomeness. So damn good. Also some reflections on the anniversary of George Floyd's murder, and thoughts on how we can be better people.
Malevolent Benevolence — Rorschach Brewing — S6 E7
Chris is sipping a MASSIVE imperial stout from Rorschach Brewing, doing some youthful story-telling, and (unfortunatley) reminding you all that racism/sexism/homophobia are still alive and well in craft brewing.
Bord du Lac — Amsterdam Brewing Co — S6 E6
Tonight Chris is sipping on an absolute BANGER, Bord du Lac from Amsterdam Brewing Co. Also bigging up the lager tasting with Sawdust City and Brew Culture coming up on May 20.
