#4878 High Road Bronan (Canada) Final beer for the night at the telly, this is a beer that so many people have told me about, so I was stoked to find it in the NOTL LCBO tonight. Looks like it’s brewed locally. This bad boy is a 7.1% Vermont IPA from Ontario, it pours exactly how you’d expect but with a shit ton of floaties, fruity nose, tangy, tropical, malty, smooth, a little dry with a dusty, lingering bitter finish. Solid, would love to have this on tap as it may be different. Get it in ya.
#fbf to a flood of Floodland for this #floodlandfriday ••• Altar, Firmament & Light, and Protection Spells by @floodlandbrewing ••• Absolute pleasure to enjoy and share these special beers with special people. Each one had so much gumption and panache in their own way. Alter with the barnyard funk that kept giving. F&L with bright stonefruit that led to the sweetest of the bunch. Protection Spells with the tart sweetness of the pluots that left you wanting to just down the entire glass. Too much good stuff and I want more. Sad I missed the last release, but hopefully I can find a generous friend who will open theirs with me ••• #floodland#wildales#floodlandbrewing#fruitbeer#spontaneousfermentation#seattlebeer#shootyourshot

#4877 Niagara Oast House Brewers Fieldberry Milkshake IPA (Canada) Final stop before heading back to the hotel, I had to swing by Oast House to grab their debut #teamlactose milkshake IPA. It’s brewed with fieldberries, 6.1%, it pours a gorgeous deep purple, juicy berry nose, tangy and fruity, chalky, dry, some great creamy, smooth vibes from the glorious lactose, ending in a dusty, berry-y finish. Well done.
