Bellwoods cracks the Canadian Top 50

Discussion in 'Canada' started by wordemupg, May 2, 2013.

  1. I haven't had that many but from what I've had I highly doubt this is a passing trend.
    Welcome to the top Bellwood's!!!
    I'm guessing as the reviews pour in Witchshark might get some company soon.
    Any other gems hiding out in Ontario that are flying under the radar?
  2. Seriously, it's only a matter of time before they start taking over the top 50. They've been brewing some top notch stuff. It would be nice to see them get some country-wide recognition.
  3. Most of their stuff will end up there, as long as it gets more exposure (reviews, that is). Almost everything they put out is top notch, so I wouldn't think it's a stretch to put them at the top of the province right now, and perhaps in the top 5 in the country right now.
  4. Well deserved IMO.
  5. Looks like I threw an extra "top" in the headline, a well I'm sure everyone will forgive me.

    Fixed. Any yes, Bellwoods is the one brewery that I actually look forward to drinking when I'm in Toronto.

  9. If only more BAs would post reviews of the beer they drink, there's no doubt that we'd see Bellwoods take over a handfull of spots in the top 50.

    It seems that Ontario BAs for the most part don't review what they drink. I am not sure why, especially now that it is so easy to enter "had"

  10. Some of belong to the dark side :) But regardless of the site I agree that it would be nice if more people rated.

    mental note made!! and CHECK!!! :)
  12. I picked up a bottle each of Witchshark, Grizzly Beer and Roman Candle last week. I've had all but the Witchshark - my goodness they brew fantastic stuff!
  13. Bring out your dead gets in there with only 11 reviews? Pretty stoked to have one heading my way in the near future, the trend continues.....
  14. Sounds like another one i'm gonna hunt down :)

    Had a chance to visit Bellwoods back in April. Really impressed with all the stuff I tried in particular their hoppy stuff - Wizard Wolf, Witchshark, Roman Candle and Monogamy Galaxy. Bring Out Your Dead, Hellwoods and their Farmhouse Classic were delicious as well. Looking foward to regular stops here when in TO.

    Just learned that Bellwoods is in negotiations with a New York distributor. We'll soon be seeing Witchshark in Rochester. Hopefully that eventually expands to some of the other beers as well.

    Here's a question - are Bellwoods brewing and bottling all of their beers at the Ossington Ave. brewpub?

    Just wondering since it seems like a small operation and didn't realize they had the capacity for expansion into other markets.
  18. I recently heard this as well and I don't understand it at all. As of right now they only sell bottles out of their brewpub and they can barely keep amble stock.
