Keg and Cork on 99th St or Sherbrooke Liqour at 118Ave and St Albert Trail are your best bets for all things beer related.

Agreed. Brooklyn Lager is solid. Glad to see some place in Edmonton serving it. You could get some Brookyln beers at the SugarBowl back in the day. Not sure if they still serve it, as I haven't been in years.

I hope Sherbrooke has it as well.

And if it does, tell them my name ("cheesed-off"), and the first case will be on me !

They're going to be giving away a lot of cases then.

Brewmasters for sure.

Oh man I wish I had a kererator. I'm trying to convince the girlfriend to let me turn the island in the kitchen into an area when I can install a tap and a kegerator underneath. I'm using the it's cheaper than renovating downstairs and installing a mini bar.

Newcastle is a good beer and is something most people would enjoy which not everyone likes dark beers. But that brewmasters is pretty damn good. I'm not sure which way to lean. Now you've gone and done it. I'll have to sit down tonight with a glass of each and get back to you on the winner.

I just read a tweet from Sherbrooke the other day that they got some celiac friendly beer. You should go check it out, I can't recall what it's called.

Off topic, but has anyone been to the rocky mountain wine and food fest? I see tix are $18 and then I assume you have to buy more tix once inside to sample stuff. Seems abit pricey for what would seem like a glorified taste of edmonton. Or is it better than that?
Just bought some anchor steam and yes it is very good.

Lets be serious, a 50L keg isn't a bad problem to have. However if you want to be responsible and conservative then by all means grab the Brewmasters you really can't go wrong either way.

Just picked up both of Sherbrookes/Alley Kats Coconut Curry Porter and the Mojo Apeel beer. Both are really solid. The Coconut Curry Porter probably doesn't taste like what you think it would taste like, it is really smooth and easy drinking.

The Mojo Apeel is a bit different but oh so flavorful. If you like bananas you'll love this beer, funny part is it doesn't even have banana in it.

If you get tired of the same beer, you can't possibly call yourself a beer lover.

Sign me up, lol.

Anyhow of course that's a lot of beer and when you buy a keg you purchase it based on how many people are going to be drinking it. You don't purchase one as a novelty to yourself.
