Kern River fresh goodies…
Shoutout to @Blogjackets for this Juju nectar!
I had Double Chuurch earlier and its a great DIPA
Something shocking I discovered, Dulle Teve ages beautifully...
That's good to know! I have 3 extras that I will age for a little while!
I found some in a store that was 8 years old, bought it thinking why the hell not, tasted incredible, but totally different than it was fresh, didn't even taste like the same beer...

Thanks Andrew and Vann, I’ll enjoy these beers this weekend-Cheers!
Wow. Please don't take this personally @Coronaeus , but that Barncat ESB label is extremely obnoxious.
I agree 100%. I find it odd that craft breweries seem to think the practice is acceptable. It has become all too common.
On a side note, while I haven’t had my can of this one yet, I expect the beer will be excellent. Barncat is arguably the best brewery in Ontario.
I was pretty confident that was a copycat label, but hadn't gotten around to figuring out which beer was copied
A lot of wax and barrels died in the making of this photo.
No way!! puppers??! whos brewing that?
Other Half Brewing
Angry Chair Brewing
Side Project Brewing
Horus Aged Ales
It’s brewed at Mill Street in Toronto. They are a former independent brewery that has been owned by Labatt’s for a few years now.
If you ‘need’ some, let me know.
Nice Arvon haul. Can’t beat the 5 dollar delivery from Grand Rapids to the Tri Cities. Most of these are 4 or 6 packs. Cheers.
Picked up some of my Barreled Souls bottles today. Time to start trying them.
