Beer of the Month: Pie Eyed Pumpkin Ale

Another pumpkin beer. This one was by Nickel Brook Brewing Company (Burlington, Ont.) which I’ve tried a couple of beers from previously.  I haven’t been thrilled with their beer in the past – kind of a good but not great selection of beer.  Similarly, I have yet to find a pumpkin flavoured beer that is […]

Beer of the Month: True South of 7

The True South of 7 beer from 4 Degrees Brewing is the final of the four different selections Andrew and I received in the latest beer of the month shipment.  This beer is the counterpart to the North of 7 beer that was also included in the shipment.  And similar to the North of 7 […]

Beer of the Month: Pepperwood Bistro and Brewery

The final two beer selections from our latest beer of the month delivery were from Pepperwood Bistro and Brewery, located in Burlington, Ontario.  By the looks of things Pepperwood is a fairly standard small scale brew-pub operation (albeit with classier food/eating area) and they routinely make five standard beers, two of which were in this […]

Beer of the Month: Red Maple Ale

The second Stonehammer Brewing selection this month was Red Maple Ale, an ale style beer that was brewed with locally sourced maple syrup. I had no idea there were categories for maple/honey beers at so many beer contests — but there are and apparently this beer has won a handful of awards. When I think […]

Beer of the Month: Queens English Mild Ale

Back to beer blogging! Two of this month’s selections came from Stonehammer Brewing in Guelph, Ontario.  Formerly known as F & M Brewery, Stonehammer has been around since 1995 and all of their beers are made using spring water from Guelph’s artesian wells. The first Stonehammer brew I tried this month was the Queen’s English […]

Beer of the Month: Barnstormer Brewing Company

Andrew and I were both finally feeling well enough to sit down an sample a couple of craft beers.  The most recent Beer of the Month Club shipment included two selections from the Barnstormer Brewing Company (BBC).  The BBC was established in 2013 in Barrie, Ontario.  All of their beers are unfiltered, they don’t pasteurize, […]

Beer of the Month: Cameron’s Lager

On the weekend Andrew and I relaxed while watching curling and sampled a couple more of the beer of the month club brews.  This time I tried the Lager by Cameron’s Brewing Company.  Similar to their Auburn Ale, the Lager has recently underwent a rebranding and is now known as “Cameron’s Captain’s Log Lager.”  By […]

Beer of the Month: Strathroy Brewing

Andrew and I finally got around to trying some of the beer that was delivered the last week of January.  This month’s selection included two beers from Strathroy Brewing.  Back in September we tried the 1815 Lockstock Ale by Strathroy Brewing.   As soon as I saw the bottle label for these couple of beers […]

Beer of the Month: Rye Knot and Red Cream Ale

We’re a bit behind on the beer of the month consumption.  I think this beer might have arrived in November but I just got around to sampling it last week. Two of the selections in this shipments were by Taps Brewing Co.  from Niagara Falls.  By the looks of it Taps is a brew up […]

Brasserie des Quatre Lunes Pumpkin Saison

New beer of the month shipment! This month’s selections seem promising and are already better than last month’s less than tasty beer. The first beer I tried this month was the Brasserie des Quatre Lunes’ Pumpkin Saison.  The brewery is an offshoot of Trafalger Ales and Meads. I love mead so I’ve actually tried some […]
