Get on my train and join me as I head to the #AleYards in Toronto and stop in @shacklandsbrewing for yet another beauty of a beer. While most of my Insta pals will be there next Saturday (March 3rd) brewing up their collab with Shacklands, I'll be at work watching and smiling at all the fun they're going to have. To celebrate early and albeit from afar I turn to Brigit, a 6.1% Belgian Brown ale I grabbed a few weeks ago that was waiting for tonight. Pours a dark brown with a thick and fluffy light tan head that never leaves you and laces beautifully. Smelling a roasty coffee and chocolate. On the sip, smooth roasted malt body with dark chocolate, banana, nutty coffee, slight Belgian yeast notes and a dry, bitter backend. It's got some more cocoa, a little spice and a lingering earthy nut kick. Damn fine beer once again from Shacklands, head there soon or mark your calendar and join the IGBrewCrew next weekend!

I'm not a mellow guy by nature. Despite appearances, my solution to my mood used to be getting hammered and being a jackass to all concerned. My life has changed, as has my outlook as I have left those days behind, although many folks will still say I'm a Jackass...they are not wrong. But I have mellowed a little with age and as long as I can have great hometown beer like Tranquillo from @fairweatherbeer, I'm in a good place. A slow sipping 6.7% sour saison that pours a golden colour with a brief white head, it smells of banana, lemon and a bit o funk. On the sip, A lovely balance between sour lemon, banana, orange and a peppery coriander backend with a refreshing finish. Lingering spicy with more lemon and banana, it's going down quick and bringing me joy with every sip. Come visit us for our beer and stay for the wonderful people who make it!

Duotron from @blackoakbrewing is full of surprises. Pours slightly hazy and smells tropical. Tastes clean and refreshing. I can deal with this "glitch" in the system, hopefully it's a regular and is in the fridge for summer, at 4% this would be quite the summer beer.

Dry-hopping our Buggywhip IPA with Mosaic was so much fun (and so sooo delish), we’ve decided to do it again — with Cashmere. Complex and intensely fruity with exotic aromas of honeydew melon, fresh-squeezed orange juice, and a hint of wild mint. Tropical flavours of tangerine and white grapefruit compliment those classic Buggy citrus notes. Now on tap + in the shops, fresh as can be. A small batch though, so get it in ya! _ #hopbomb #ipasallday #brewlife #ontcraftbeer #oncraftbeer
