Trois Pistoles, Fin du Monde and Maudite are masterpieces from Unibroue and cheap relatively speaking. I love Belgian beers, so I think we are damn lucky to have a brewery like Unibroue in Canada. Love that brewery!

On another note, has anyone ever gotten any Augustiner stuff here in Edmonton?? I was recently in Munich and I'm craving helles lagers and dunkels currently.

Yeah same, can't really say what my fav is either. I do love my dark & red amber beers though.

I should check that place out.
Its funny that you say that, I just bought a 6 pack of yukon red last night. Fantastic stuff too.

As for maudite I used to drink thatbeer all the time when I'd went for poker night at my buddies. Pretty tasty but nothing to go crazy for. With that said I'd definitely drink it again.

I too have tasted the glory that is Augustiner while I was in Munich and I have missed it ever since. As far as I know Augustiner generally does not export their beer and I have never seen it in Edmonton.

If anyone knows where (even if I have to order it on the internet) I could find some Augustiner Helles I would be most greatful!

I tried 3 of the Yukon lineup...their red, gold and ice fog and it was delicious. I left the tasting a bit early because I had my proverbial fill, but it was great. There was a nice little tequila distillery that was there and his tequila? delicious. And I learned something about Agave.

The Creemore Lager was fantastic as well. It started off with a strong but clean taste and then has a smoky finish that suckerpunches you at the end when you finish your sip.

I miss grabbing a cold Augustiner at a kiosk for 2 euros and pounding them back on the street. Wish we could drink to-go here in Edmonton.

I fondly remember starting a day of site seeing with a half litre of helles while I was riding the subway. Oh why could we not have liberal drinking laws and inexpensive high quality beers readily availible everywhere.

Yeah I'm looking forward to trying more from their lineup as they ahve about 8 different beers. I also found out that apparently most Original Joes carry the Yukon Gold and the Yukon Red.

it must be in bottles, I don't generally buy anything but draft from OJs (5 bucks a pint every night!)

Oh really so they don't carry it on tap? That's a real bummer.

What exactly do they carry on tap. It's been a long time since I went to OJ's and actually got a drink. I always find myself going there during the lunch hour and being responsible. I'm so looking forward to the one in Leduc opening up soon.


Also I went to the Sherbrooke Rum Festival at the Citadel last night. Pretty solid night, learned a lot about different rums and such. Also found a new specialty sipping drink. Some of the booths were sampling different ginger beers and adding a shot of dark/amber rum on top. I don't recall what it's called but it was damn tasty. Kinda reminded me of mixing rum with ginger ale with a kick.

I'd have to look it up so I don't totally screw it up, but they have Okanogan Springs (2 types), Big Rock (Lime, Grasshopper, Trad), Wild Rose (Wraspberry and Velvet Fog), Guiness, Alleykat (Aprikat and Brewberry Ale) and their own in-house brews (5 of them, I'm pretty sure).

The one in sherwood park also has a massive beer fridge behind the bar. TONS of different stuff in bottles.

...as you can probably tell I drink there frequently.

Awesome, like I said I will definitely be going there more often when it open up here in Leduc. Too bad it's not more of a sports bar for games. I believe they show the hockey games but they don't play them with audio or anything. Also too bad that is seems they have everyone fruit beers and none of the craft makers darker beers. Unless of course one of the Okanagan springs is the Brewmasters or the Porter I'd be very happy. Guess if they keep two Alley Kat though the Brewberry will have to change since it's out of season now.

Stuff like that changes, and next time I go to OJs (tomorrow, in fact) I'll take a peek at their bottle selection. They might carry some of the darker varieties in bottle form instead. It is still technically summer so right now the lighter beers are more relevant anyways.

I've been to OJs during games and the one here in sherwood park turns on the audio for oilers' games. They did the same for the playoffs last year. I can't speak for any other locations, however. The only thing I don't like is that they don't show the UFC events or I'd go there for every card rather than just stay home.

Awesome good to hear. Like I said I've always gone there because their food is good but honestly didn't know much about what beer they actually carried.

I have the unique opportunity with the OJs here to basically leave my car at work, cross the street to the bar with some friends, have some drinks and nachos and then walk home afterwards, so I've tried a fair bit of their selection as a result. If you're out of the way of any locations and only go there for a 'dry lunch' then yeah I can see why you're unfamiliar with their beer selection.

Yeah it will be awesome, the one in Leduc is within walking distance to my place.

I traded with a guy from Calgary. Don't worry, I put a Hemmer sticker on the top of the box for him! I sent him my styro-shipper full of Ontario/Quebec brews and he returned it to me with some great Alberta and Belgium greats.

My favourite beer is called Coro-Catsup.


So what you do is you grab a Corona light. Instead of putting a lime into it, you squirt some ketchup into your bottle. How much? As much as your heart desires. Shake that puppy up until it fizzles violently and then you drink it. It tastes like that drink where you mix tomato juice and beer.

It's quite delicious and can be enjoyed with a nice enchilada or filet mignon.

First off Corona is terrible so I couldn't imagine Corona Light. Secondly I'll save my ketchup for my burgers and fries. Probably be put to better use there than in beer.

Blanche de Chambly is also a great white beer from Unibroue.
