Beer a Day Blog

My opinion on a variety of beers.

About My Beer a Day (or whenever I feel like it) Blog

Hello everyone, ever found yourself looking at the beers in the imported or specialty section, thinking to yourself, I wonder if that one is any good. Well I have started this blog giving my opinion on a variety different beers and hopefully I can help you out. I am a beer lover who enjoys trying different brands. I am by no means an expert, just a regular guy who enjoys sampling beers. I will be drinking different beers from around the world, one beer a day (at least most days), and commenting on them. I will drink each beer chilled from a chilled mug or glass (my personal preference) and then rate them. Most of the beers I am reviewing have been purchased from the LCBO or Beer Store in Ontario.  Most beers will be 500 ml bottles or cans. If you are interested in trying any of the beers I have recommended, try your local LCBO, although some are only available for a limited time. At the moment I am concentrating on imported brands and occasionally I will be commenting on local specialty beers. I will not be commenting on big name brands such as Molson Canadian and Coors Light.

If you are looking for a place to tell you what beer goes best with a certain cheese or cavier, then move on this isn’t the place for you. If you think beer goes with Pizza and Chicken Wings, then welcome to my blog. And remember, friends don’t let friends drink Bud Light.

If you want some good pop-punk music to listen to while drinking beer check out To Tell The Tale, I guarantee you won’t be disappointed. Free downloads at http://totellthetale.bandcamp.com/

Your comments are welcome, let me know if you agree with my opinion.

Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed – Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn’t drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, ‘It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver.’
-Deep Thought, Jack Handy

I will post a list of all beers and my rating (rated out of 10). Click on the tab on the top of the page for a list all ratings.

  1. I couldn’t agree more with your rating on Kronenbourg 1664! I noticed you have tried Okocim, but have you tried Okocim Mocne (mocne = strong)? Another one I’d reco is Baltika from Russia, you can still pick up a mix pack at the LCBO which contains Baltika #5, #6, #7. Number 6 – is the Porter which is very smooth and enjoyable.

    • I have tried Baltika 3, and reviewed it on January 8, haven’t seen any of the other numbers yet. I have an Okocim Mocne chilling in the fridge, will be trying it soon. Thanks so much for your comments. I tend to prefer German, Polish and Eastern European beers, so I may be a bit biased.

  2. Some of the other Baltikas are wonderful. There’s a very dark one that was lovely. I have tried beers in almost all the former Communist countries, so I will try and find out from my photos what their names were.
    Never had a crap beer or lager in those places.
    I see you tried a lot of Scottish beers. Have you tried Brewdog yet (apologies if I have missed the post)?
    OK to put a link?

    Tonight, I have had four small bottles of Leffe Blonde. Extremely pleasant evening, despite my team being cheated by a Czech footballer and a Dutch referee. Drown my sorrows with Belgian lager.
    I found one, Baltika 7 in St Petersburg. Very, very good!

    • Have only had ‘PunK’ from the Brew Dog pub, wasn’t a fan, found it had a weird bitter aftertaste. Sadly I am at the mercy of what beers are imported here for the ones I sample.
