Swans has Hefeweizen and Witbeer. I didn't care for it, but that stuff is an acquired taste too.

Swans has a new beer, the Legacy Ale, a very strong beer, 11% alcohol... "barley wine" style.
Nowadays most people die of a sort of creeping common sense, and discover when it is too late that the only things one never regrets are one's mistakes.

Beer and fruit, I've never liked the combination, I still pull out the lemon wedges they stick in my Hefeweizen's. Why bother ruining the taste of the beer with a fruit, if I wanted to taste fruit I woulda bought a cider or a fruit wine!


If you can find it, I've bought most on the island, try to find "Ephemere" from Unibroue. They make a deadly apple beer, and I'm not a fruit beer fan myself (also don't like the lemon in a hefe). Ephemere comes in many fruits though, I'm not a big fan of the raspberry which can also be found around town.

Just to piss you beer conniseuers (sp?) off:)

One of my favourite drinks is a Miquelada

Take one regular old lager add the juice of one lime, 1/2 teaspoon of salt and about 6 large dashes of hotsauce.

Ahh so good!

I have one complaint about Phillips products. The damn twist-off caps are darn near impossible to twist-off!

Are they twist-offs, or are you joking? I didn't know they were twist-offs, but I'm lazy and use an opener for everything.

Are you sure they're twist-offs? I made this mistake once myself and badly serrated the palm of my hand (I was determined not to be defeated by a simple twist-off cap). The rule-of-thumb is good micro beer requires a bottle opener, swill for the masses has twist-offs.

If they're twist-offs, be sure to check each bottle for ease of opening :-D

I don't think I've ever tried twisting them off, I just assumed I should use an opener, (or my teeth).

I'm enjoying a Phillips IPA right now! It's from a can, so no opener required!

Where did you get the canned Phillips IPA? The Phillips IPA bottles are the twist off type -- just look at the mouth of the bottle. My son just turned 19 last month and he's a big bruiser football player -- he barely got it off and he must have scraped his hands up real good. And here my kids thought I was a weenie because I couldn't twist-off a beer bottle cap. They changed their tune when they gave it a try. My 14 year old daughter thought she could show me up when she gave it a try -- but she could not do it either and neither could my brother who is a strong guy who works on an oil rig in Alberta.

I think the Phillips people have set up a challenge for manhood. Can you twist off the bottle cap without grip or mechanical aids?

Oops, my mistake--it's Beacon IPA, not Phillips.

Hard work and a series of what owner Matt Phillips calls “happy accidents” have in 14 years taken Phillips Brewing from a tiny Esquimalt garage into a large facility on the edge of downtown Victoria.

I hope they use their local malt to make something other than IPA, Double IPA, ISA, Triple IPA, Black IPA, White IPA, or BlahBlahIPA.
