Hibernator Brett Barrel Aged Stout Blend - 2016
7%/45 IBU's
Bandit Brewery

Im always a little leery about the potential for these Brett based beers to be sour, and quite frankly, sour is not really a style of beer I go for. Pleasantly surprised by this one my friends. This one was aged 7 months in Niagara Pinot Noir barrels and originally started as two separate imperial stouts. Through experimentation and many taste tests, Bandit found the blend they were looking for and produced 500 bottles of their very first barrel aged beer! Thanks to Paul for grabbing this one for me when it came out. Getting ahold of these gems while im in India isnt always easy!

WHAT THEY SAY: This is a blend of Brett, cherry and orange imperial stouts, barrel aged and bottle conditioned. Dark cherry, oak, and smooth roast flavours balanced by a dry and efervescent body. Drinks like a black champagne.

WHAT I SAY: A nice dark brown pour with a huge 3 finger plus tan coloured creamy head with quick fade. On the nose, dominantly funky with your Brett elements right up front. There's also a roasted chocolate and citric presence to the nose. This is where I got nervous as the style isnt something I typically go for. That funky Brett is obvious on first sip, but not nearly as overpowering as I thought it would be. The Brett really is followed by some orange and dark cherry citric flavours. The stout actually makes an appearance mid mouth with elements of roasted chocolate which fades to a nice bitterness at the finish. Hibernator 2016 has a nice medium soft and creamy texture to the mouthful and the flavour profile, although mimics the nose very closely, is not as sour as I thought it would be. Very pleasant brew and a great start to what hopefully becomes a regular style in Bandit's lineup of specialty/seasonals. Bandit, has big plans for Hibernator 2017 with includes kicking up the ABV to 10% to make this an Imperial with sour and seasonal fruits. Look for Hibernator 2017 in the bottle shop sometime in December 2017.

#BEERYOGA 🙏🏼🍺 Practicing mindfulness on the mat so we can appreciate the art & science behind #craftbeer its #breweries & its people 👍🏼👍🏼 #yogaontap is bringing this & much more to #Toronto @brewfesttoronto MARCH 25 for $15 (yoga + 4 samples) 🍻 Tickets online @ brewfest.ca 🙌🏼

Opted for the #Molson 1908 Historic Pale Ale while watching Game 1 of the @worldcuphockey finals. Not particularly thrilled with the nose of it out of the bottle, as it has a fairly heavy alcohol smell. The taste is a bit bland but not unpleasant. I think perhaps a bit more hops might have helped this Pale Ale along, but a different option and a solid try by Molson here. – Ryan #rndbeerblast #416beer #canada🇨🇦 #gocanadago

When there are only two house beers on tap and you're a brewpub, I find that a warning sign. The pils @mascotbrewery might be good, but the dirty dishrag odour masked any enjoyment, the hefeweizen was good and the glass was clean. #brewpub #brewery #craftbeerjunkie #beerandfood #ontariomade #beerstagram #beergeek #ontariobeer #brewpub #the6ix #tobeer #416beer #yyzfood #yyzbeer #craftbrewing #craftbrewery #craftbeeraddict #craftbeerculture #craftbeerporn #beerme #beerlover #beernerd #beerreview #brew #brewing #beersofinstagram f

WHAT THEY SAY: thirsty? Want a craft beer that goes down easy, is full of flavour but so drinkable that you can crush a few with your friends (or even dad!)? Tired of telling yourself, "I want to switch to craft beers but they're just to bitter?" Then Old Tomorrow's new Light'er Up is for YOU!

WHAT I SAY: first, they say a hell of a lot more about this beer but IG only gives me so much space, so go check out their website to read more. Second, this beer is everything they say it is and absolutely is a beer for you macro lovers out there who want to 'ahem' expand and improve your palate. Poured a nice clean pale yellow colour with a finger of white bubbly head normal fade and some nice streaming carb. On the nose, a bit of grainy, bready cereal malts, and a subtle grassiness are your dominant aromas. Flavour wise, beautifully clean and crisp with some flavour!! The malt bill is tasty with your bready cereal malts and a semi sweet caramel flavour mid body and a nice mild bitterness at the finish. Imagine a light beer with flavour instead of yellow water! Easily a very crushable superior alternative to those macro beers and comes from a brewery that is proud to be Canadian! Get your hands on some and try it today!

Octopus Wants to Fight IPA | @greatlakesbeer | 6.2% ABV | Toronto, ON | A great, juicy IPA from @greatlakesbeer that's as easy-drinking as it is delicious. Perfect to enjoy on a warm summery evening this aromatic and bitter IPA packs a punch (or 8) and leaves a lingering sweetness in the aftertaste #drinkcraft #ontariobeer #craftbeerlover #craftbeergeek #craftbeer #drinklocal #drinkontariobeer #drinkontariocraftbeer #ipa #greatlakesbrewing #beer #beergeek #beerlover #beerstagram #beertography #toronto #torontobeer #416beer #ontariobeer #ontariocraft

Another fantastic pilsner! Unfiltered Pilsner by @rainhardbrewing (Toronto, ON). I think I'm going to make a concerted effort to try more craft pilsners and lagers this summer. It's a style I don't drink often, but after having some great ones in the last couple weeks like @toothandnailbeer Vim & Vigor, @sidelaunch Mountain Lager, and now this, I think it's time I embrace the craft lager more, because clearly there are some great ones being made here 🍻- 📷: Nathan #RNDbeerblast #rainhard #unfilteredpilsner #pilsner #toronto #torontobeer #416beer #ONcraftbeer #ontariocraftbeer #craftbeer #beerporn #beerreview #drinklocal #drinkcraft #drinkcraftbeer #beer #biere #brew #beerstagram #brewhead #instabeer #beergeek #craftbeerlover #canadiancraftbeer #beertography #craftbeergeek @thebrewboxco #brewbox #thebrewboxco

I was amped to find two 355ml cans from @rainhardbrewing (Toronto, ON) in my April box from @thebrewboxco, and Armed 'n Citra in particular! This noticeably unfiltered American Pale Ale is fruity all over. There's a citrus zip, some tropical acidity and some softer melon flavours as well. Nicely balanced with a touch of bitterness. My expectations were high from all the good reviews I've read of this beer, and it delivered! Good on ya Rainhard! Looking forward to a visit on one of my next trips to Toronto - 📷: Nathan #RNDbeerblast #rainhard #armedncitra #APA #paleale #toronto #torontobeer #416beer #ONcraftbeer #ontariocraftbeer #drinklocal #drinkcraft #drinkcraftbeer #beerreview #beerporn #craftbeer #beer #biere #brew #beerstagram #brewhead #instabeer #instabeer #beergeek #craftbeerlover #canadiancraftbeer #beertography #craftbeergeek #brewbox #thebrewboxco
