I reviewed this beer already, just sixteen months ago. Why mention it again? Because Cass Enright, as part of his examination of the weird system of beer in Ontario called "Free Our Beer" has imported it into the province. Yee-umm.
See, the FOB project is sort of like a business meets performance art meets beer meets the wall of silence, inertia and regulation that is the Liquor Control Board of Ontario. Usually I don't go for performance art. Too many unitards. But I like this one because it has resulted - along with Cass doing a great job pointing out the system's senselessness - in this great beer being down the road at my local store. Peppery pine hops meet thick malty sweet goodness. Heavy as marmalade.
