Now that I’m all caught up in my drinking posts (thanks to four shifts in a row that ended at 8:30), here’s some news from around the interwebs:
- Great Canadian Pubs and Beer brings word of weekly Friday Night Cask Nights at the Mill Street Brewpub, starting this Friday with an extra dry hopped Scotch Ale (confirmed by Mill Street’s Twitter). No word on when it’ll be tapped, but Soph and I have Friday off and this is pencilled in. It’ll also give me a chance to try the seasonals I’ve been missing.
- Time is running out if you live in Ontario and want some Half Pints beers. HMH Negotiants have a private order going for the Little Scrapper IPA, Burly Wine and Stir Stick Stout. Haven’t tried ’em myself, but I remember Nick Pashley having some nice things to say in Cheers! Order closes on Monday, February 1st. They’re also now representing Les Trois Mousquetaires in Ontario, so hopefully those will also be showing up for private order soon.
- If you’re looking to learn more about pale ales, check out the About Beer session with Adrian Popowycz of Black Oak happening at The Only Cafe on Sunday, February 7th. Tickets are $25, so get in touch with The Only if you’re interested. I’ve been meaning to head to one of these monthly sessions, but will be waiting for the Mike Duggan one in March.
- Finally, beerbistro is participating in this year’s Winterlicious. Soph and I have reservations for Sunday night, so look for a review next week!
