And a second version of Thrust with Vermont yeast available in growlers only.
Bellwoods Bounty Hunter returns on Friday:
Super pumped for this

GLB Octopus Wants To Fight available at brewery tomorrow.
^^ and Octopus Wants to Fight most likely heading to the LCBO in the somewhat near future
Bellwoods Double Jutsu and Barn Owl #3 tomorrow.
Bellwoods Mango IPA and Sour Petite Saison out today.
Bellwoods Blackberry Jelly King, Blackberry Milkshark, 100 IPA out today. Double Jutsu and Wild Orchid also out.
Indie Alehouse Burning Boat Chocolate Barleywine.
Cameron's Early Bird Breakfast Barleywine and Where the Buffalo Roam are still out. Both were surprisingly good.
Bellwoods Cherry Jelly King is out. Guava Milkshark out tomorrow and Motley Cru on Saturday.
Bellwoods released a couple interesting ones today.
Blood Orange Gose with Lactose and vanilla.
Tang Town. DIPA with passion fruit.
The Gose is the first in a series of fruited goseswith lactose.
There seemed to be good stock when I was at Hafis an hour or so ago.
The Blood Orange Gose is awesome. They're expecting it to be gone really quickly though (likely by tomorrow).
Bellwoods is absolutely killin it lately. So jealous of all you folks with access.
Bim Lafontaine's new brewery, Godspeed, opens tomorrow. Three beers will be released. No additional info yet on the styles..........
Saw that. Looking forward to hearing about them. I think he spent quite a bit of time in asia, might have an influence.
Instagram post hints an Asian influence ...
one will be a stout
Tang Town was a great sour
I suspect that is just because he lived in Japan....
How's the Godspeed stuff?
Not great if you looking for something exciting. Rather boring brews that are ridiculously priced for what they are.
Probably a good thing I didn't make the trek from Markham last week.
From what I've read, the expressions brewed so far are well made, and worth drinking if you live in the neighborhood, but not something to go out of one's way to pay $3.75 for a 355ml can. I'll stick to the similarly expensive (~$6) 500ml bottles being offered by Rouge River just minutes from my house.
Worth sitting up at the bar and having a little session. Unlike the beer, the kitchen has hit the ground running -- really tasty (and affordable) Japanese treats. What's more, the dortmunder and saison are actually pouring a lot better than the comments online would have you believe. I figure, at the end of the day, it'll be nice to compare this lineup of brews with one's six months to a year down the road.
Bim is a great brewer from all his years as the guy at DdC's brewpub, colabs with Brasserie de la Senne and Hillfarmstead and the list goes on. Sure it is a little bit dialing in the new system and the styles he chose to brew for the opening. Looking forward to when I get to check the place out in November.
Bims place will be fine. I think some of the crap on everything geeks hyped themselves into thinking this place would be serving hazy New England IPA and bourbon barrel aged marshmallow stouts right off the bat that anything else ended up being a disappointment. He's still adapting to the neighborhood, equipment, etc. Give him time.
Pricing is on the higher side but that's the route we are headed in the GTA.
For sure. Agree this place will have some great beers down the road and it will become an institution eventually, however, I would not revisit any of the beers from the first release at those price points. Just my opinion.
Bellwoods Peach Milkshark tomorrow.
If you are heading to Hafis tomorrow for around opening I may see you there. Cheers!
Unfortunately I'm out of town and thus out of luck for this round. Perhaps next. Cheers!
No crazy line for the Peach Millshark release at Hafis. I'm guessing it will still be there after the normal work day. I'd say a third of the people I saw in the line were not getting a full allotment.
I've never been to Hafis until this release. I was shocked I didn't have to stand in line for 45mins. Went in at 2:30 walked out with my share at 2:35.
If you showed up at noon there would have been a line up. You should have at least stayed for a glass of draft Milkshark or Tang Town!
I actually did for the Tang Town, soooooo I lied left later than 2:35. I cannot get enough of Bellwoods though. Bringing some down for some friends in Florida in 2 weeks. Just trying to brag about the great breweries we have here to them.
Anyone get their hands on WitchShark yet?
also walked out with my shark, at 135pm. I think the thrill of witchshark is wearing off a little bit.
saw someone post ISO: lambic, BA sours and stouts FT: milkshark, dont know if its wearing off as much as one would like
Witchshark is a DIPA available a few times throughout the year. There is no hype for Witchshark, and hence, no line-ups.
The Milkshark's are fruited IPA's with lactose and vanilla. A take on the 'milkshake' IPA. Very small batches and completely different beers.
The post of Milkshark for lambic is rather silly. However, I have traded Milkshark's for 2 x Trillium and also traded some for Treehouse.
In what order did the Milksharks release again? Had the pineapple then got the remaining 4 yesterday, drank the blackberry right away as it's getting old (was still yummy) and trying to figure out which to tackle next. I know peach is the latest, but the guava and mango I can't remember. Thanks
