    While I generally try to have a nice sampling of beers in my fridge, there are almost always a few tall boys of this and it's the first one I'll grab when I don't want to try something new:



    Recently tried this and made me realize that me likes Hop City brewing



    For a more mass produced, cost effective, generic beer, notably on hot days:

    Up to this summer it was Guinness.

    Starting in a few weeks it will be home brew.

    Typically I tend to stick to Sapporo or Stella.. put Mousehead in there or Keith's.
    Mill Street organic is a good finish. Sounds like I drink - but not really.
    Now I did try Cpt's suggestion and will need to try again

    Been doing my own brews lately, I was enjoying a nice Blackberry Wheat ale, but i'm moving onto my hoptastic IPA.

    For store bought I'm much like cptsydor, Barking Squirrel is a great beer and for my more generic beer I go to Keiths.

    Typically Mad Tom IPA, Mill Street Tankhouse Ale or Quidi Vidi British IPA.

    Barking Squirrel and Big Mouth are pretty good as well.

    I've been really getting into the large-format specialty bottles lately. The selection just keeps getting better and better!

    For instance, among others, I have these sitting on the kitchen counter waiting for the right occasion:

    Black Oak 10 Bitter Years Imperial IPA

    And for a change of pace, Grand River Tailset Ginger Ale

    Where are you getting the Quidi Vidi from? I've only ever tried bottles that have been brought here to TO by friends.
    My vote for an after ride beer goes to either a Wellinton SPA, or a Waterloo Amber. Not that I seem to get the chance to have an after ride beer very often. I have better luck sitting down later in the evening for my pints.

    Sort of off topic, I have just discovered that the depanneur (corner store) across the road from my mum's in Montreal (Pte Claire) has the most incredible selection of Quebec microbrews. "Hello Mum, I'm here for a visit again"
    Cheers, Dave

    We went to Quebec City for a week about a month ago and the depanneur in the farmer's market had a ridiculous selection of local microbrews. Beer culture in Quebec is about 10 years ahead of Ontario.

    In addition to the already mentioned Barking Squirrel, Tank House, Steam Whistle

    I also like to mix in a couple bike themed beers from Amsterdam Brewery:
    Boneshaker IPA

    I can get some QV beers at the corner store but I usually have to go to the liquor store to get the IPA or 1892. Of course, I can drive to the brewery in 15 minutes and one of the local mtb trail areas is right on its doorstep. The exits of the DH trails are a 2 minute ride away.

    Yep and Ontario is 10 years ahead of Newfoundland. Other than being able to buy beer anywhere, of course.

    Love an Oatmeal Stout (typically drink St. Ambroise's), but after a ride I typically want something really light. Sleeman Light or Clear is often in my fridge.
