Sasquatch Stout from Chilliwack is a tasty stout. Especially when drinking it on a patio overlooking Harrison Lake in the Fraser Valley, whiling away the evening hours before the Scientists of Sound play at the closest bar to your motel.

IF you'd like to try what many connoisseurs consider to be the finest beer in the world, you'll have to get out your wallet.

A six-pack of Westvleteren 12, a Belgian strong ale with 10 per cent alcohol, will set you back $85 (including a pair of beer glasses) at a Manitoba Liquor Control Commission outlet, or a little more than $96 with taxes. That works out to more than $16 per 330-millilitre bottle.

Hawaiian Style Pale Ale by Spearhead Brewing is now available at the LCBO on Richmond Road, and I'm sure at other locations. See lcbo.com for details.

WOW, do I ever love this beer! My favourite new beer in a long time. I hope this becomes a regular offering... for now I'm buying up all the stock I can find.

I'm loving Boneshaker by Amsterdam lately. It has some serious hops. I've never been an Amsterdam fan but this beer is tasty.

Available at the Richmond and Hampton Park LCBOs in Ottawa that I know of. Yes, this is a seriously good beer. Easily the best thing Amsterdam has ever brewed.

Great IPA and I agree about your Amsterdam assessment.

Thanks to Freeker for the link:

Also of note is the name of the brewmaster: Shane Clark. :)
