We sample a blueberry beer from Boréale, mainly from products from Quebec. This doesn’t look like a beer, more like a fritzy fruit drink with the blueberry coming in so slightly. Very subtle beer taste. Drink this ice cold on a hot summer day and this ends up being a very refreshing brew.
We went to the 6th Annual Halifax Seaport Beerfest, along Pier 21 in the seaport market district of the downtown core. We reviewed our top 3 brew, the biggest surprise, disappointment, food & overall vibe of the show. Our Top 3 Brews, we focused on IPA and Pale Ale as there was a nice mix […]
We taste another beer from this small microbrew from l’Île d’Orléans just up the river from Québec City. This is a 10% strong ale, which is their seasonal winter beer – Chocolate & Vanilla. This is a DARK beer, tan head, lots of chocolate smells, roasted; kinda reminds me a lot of a good stout. […]
We try a beer from an island just north of Quebec City; Brasserie l’Ile d’Orleans, in the middle of the St-Laurence River.

Garrison Brewing celebrated their 15th anniversary with 15 types of hops, mango & ginger for a 9% strong ale. Goldings, palisade, millenium, columbus, galaxy, tettnang, bullion, crystal, cascade, amarillo, strisselspalt, berle, citra, Mt Hood & Brewers Gold.
This is a NICE complex brew where the booze doesn’t bite you in the face. It’s not really a hopbomb as compared to some ofthe other IPA’s we’ve had. We’ve found this to be a great one to try and find some flavors other than hops.

Been waiting for Moosehead’s new Cracked Canoe beer, and after seeing on the Twitter feed that it would be available on May 1 all over Canada; I wanted some. Unfortunately I checked 2 NSLC locations and was denied. So I brought home a new Keith’s brew.
