Après Ski

Après-ski translates literally as 'after ski' and is a term commonly used to refer to after skiing activities, typically parties, drinks, or just hanging out at the lodge. Personally, my favourite après ski pastime is heading back to the bach with friends, cranking the fire, and mixing up some drinks for a few rounds of board games or cards. Here are some perfect, manageable après ski cocktails for your next ski trip.

Holiday Shopping Tips

I just want to share some shopping tips to make everyone's experience just a little bit easier.

North End Feature

North End is one of my favourite sneaky breweries. Their labels are unassuming and you could easily pass them up for a flashier brand. But that would be a gigantic mistake as the beer inside is world class.  

Oktoberfest Season

Oktoberfest, the granddad (The Opa?) of beer festivals, has been held in Munich since 1810.

Oud Beersel 'Bag in a Box' Lambics

We have something a bit different for you today.  Oud Beersel Brewery created a special bag-in-box format of their interesting lambics.  Each box contains 3.1L of beer (equivalent to about 8.3 standard demi bottles).

Flavoured beer: the flavour of the month

Fruit, lactose, spices, or - in at least one case - all three are often added to beers these days as brewers try to push boundaries and excite drinker's taste buds. 

Beervana Time

It's that time of year where brewers pull out all the stops and start doing cartwheels in beer form to garner the attention of adoring beer drinkers around the country.  And to our collective benefit. 

Some last minute new arrivals for your weekend

Just in time for the weekend are a slew of new beers from everyone's favourite breweries as well as a sneaky cheapie German Pilsner from Berlin that tastes great and comes in at an amazing $14.99 per sixer!
