Just poked my head into Howley Estates NLC. New on shelves:

Driftwood Brewery New Growth Pale Ale
Bridge Brewing Lemon Gin Saison

Just got back from there. They also had the calendar beers from the club order. Looking forward to those as I did not get the calendar last time. They also had a Hop City Saison and Rhyme & Reason from Collective Arts. Cheers....

Cans of Rhyme & Reason? Staff were still putting out stock in the fridge when I was there, looks like I missed a lot. May have to go back for Rhyme & Reason if they're in cans :o

At Topsail Rd they also had the Farmhand Saison to go with the Fat Tug and New Growth.

Calendar beers look to be
  • Gno More Gnomes
  • Sauerkirsche Stout
  • Pohjala Oo (which is awesome)
  • Nogne O Adventurous Brown
  • The Crimson Bird With Raspberries
  • t'Verzet Oud Bruin
Actual new beer was the Spindrift Killick Session Lager in 6X355 ml cans.

They seem to be doubling down on the Twice as Mad Tom with stacked cases and Air Miles promo. They're also restocking Peche Mortel.

We brought in 6 of the calendar beers, not getting home for another 2 weeks so I'll probably miss them. The missus did pick up some of the Bridge, I'll have to see what else I want to throw down for before they run out.

Spindrift Blueberry Chai Pils is in stores now.

And by the way, in my opinion, the Spindrift Killick Session Lager is a deadly little light German style lager. Easy drinking but not tasteless. I'm probably going to pick up another 6 pack for when the "I just want a beer" mood strikes me.

Oh yeah, they also now have the Molson Mad Jack high alcohol flavoured "beers" on the shelves: Suckerpunch (lemon) and Hard Core (apple). It is my strong belief that you easily tell a bad beer by the size of the font that advertises the alcohol content. Look at Faxe 10%, Molson XXX, etc. You don't see Dark Lord with a giant "15%!!!" on the side of the label.

Lucky me-my girl bought 6 each of the Calendar beers for me.

Thanks for the tip on the Spindrift too, not that I'll be home long enough to drink any.

That would make 2 beers for your Goose Island Untappt game.
