As I suspected, this week's beer shopping trip to the LCBO was an expensive one.
But, some of the expense is actually being saved for this spring/summer, so I guess it's not too bad.
I picked up two bottles of Muskoka Legendary Oddity and one of Chimay Premiere and hid them away in the basement. Oddity is a limited run, and I'd really like to try it paired with a nice BBQ steak, so I decided to bite the bullet and get it now. Maybe I'll try to keep one for next year to compare with next year's batch. That'll be tough. :)
My wife also picked up a growler of Big Rig's Amazing Czech Pilz. I cracked that open last night and the review is next.
Also on the list was Beau's Strong Patrick (Irish Red Ale), Beaver River (I.P.Eh.), and Lug Tread Lagered Ale. I'm sure I had a cup of Lug Tread a long time ago and liked it, but I don't remember what it was like — plus the 4-pack has been taunting me for weeks every time I'm wandering around the LCBO beer fridge, so I had to silence it.
I was hoping to find the Mill St. Spring Mix (Spring Imp & Maple Ale) but they didn't have it, even though it's supposed to be in-store by now. Hopefully it's forthcoming for my local LCBO.
One the way to the cash, we passed a display of Muskoka Mad Tom IPA 6-packs. Into the cart they went. It wasn't until we got home that I noticed a surprise, that'll mention in the review. :)
