Bandit Brewery

I went to Bandit Brewery recently for a flight of beers and some snacks. The place has a raccoon theme so all their glasses have faces and you can even buy fun posters of the beer labels in their Bottle Shop. I had a flight of four beers: I had the Citra, Hoppelganger, Mr. Pink…

Reinhart’s Red Apple Cider

I love cider, so everytime I see a new one at the LCBO I must try it. This Reinhart one is by the same people who make Apple Cider and baked goods, so they had to know what they were doing with their apples. This cider was light, not too tart and had a crisp…

I drank this and fell asleep 

    A few weeks ago, outside of a music festival, some promo people were handing out cans of Mellow Mood for free. It was a super hot day so I took one thinking the calming part wouldn’t work and I instantly got calmer and sleepier. It’s a non alcoholic drink with camomile, lavender and…

Propeller Coffee Dark Roast

Propeller is super close to where I live, so it’s probably going to be my go-to for beans when I am lazy. Their coffees are award winning and deservedly so. The dark roast is bold but has the nice profile of chocolate & caramel, making it go down super easy. coffeefoodpropeller

Broadhead’s Grindstone Amber Ale

While I was in Ottawa, I tried to find some local beer at the closest LCBO and only found this amber ale from Broadhead. I enjoyed the flavour that hit in just the right places. There was a tinge of sweetness and a drinkable malt. Bold without being too bold. beerbroadheaddrinks

Pilot Coffee: Heritage

In Toronto, I’m blessed with a lot of local indie coffee shops that sell local brews. I picked up this Heritage blend by Pilot Coffee Roasters. I loved this blend. It requires no sugar (in fact I feel like sugar ruins it!) and there is a lovely tone of swiss chocolate and toffee when you…

Muskoka Roastery: Howling Wolf

In my latest coffee adventure I decided to try the Muskoka Roastery’s “Howling Wolf”. This one was actually available at Longo’s. The roast was a medium dark roast. It was full of flavour but smooth enough that people usually into medium roasts can still enjoy it. What are your favourite non-commercial coffee beans? I want…

KW Craft Cider 

This weekend I picked up some KW Craft Cider. I’ve never had it before but I was drawn to its minimalistic packaging. It is named after the Kitchener-Waterloo region where the brewery is based. At 6.7%, I found the cider rather easy to drink, was only slightly tarty, but full of flavour. In fact, I…

Java Works Dark French Roast

I found this Java Works French Roast at Winners. It is a Β blend of premium selected high grown Arabica coffees from the Latin Americas and the Asia Pacific regions. This coffee was full-bodied and flavourful. I didn’t find it too bitter and it had a light sweetness. There’s ton of coffees in the Java Works…

San Diego Coffee: Dutch Chocolate

My sister gifted me a Bodum French Press set for Christmas that has a coffee bean grinder and hot water boiler. Now I’m excited to explore the world of coffee beans. My first bag was San Diego Coffee’s “Dutch Chocolate” flavour, that I ordered on Amazon. It’s a Medium Roast of 100% Arabica beans. Though…
