#BeerSaturday 253! It is a Growlin' good time!

I became a beer blogger naturally due to years I have spent brewing for myself, working with breweries on their technology and marketing, and the decades spent imbibing. Hence, the self-decreed title of the #Blockchain #Beerologist and I am cranking up my Beerology game this year.

For week 253, I am pulling a growler from each of the 3 local breweries!

Shorty O' the Week

Growlers are the big 2-litre jugs you can use to bring fresh beer home from your local craft brewery. I figured that a big refillable glass bottle is about as old-school as it can get and they are a global thing but I guess not! Either way, I treat the growler like the shorty of the week because I can pour myself a half pint of unique beer when a full pint is just a bit too much. Otherwise, these shorties from Black Swan Brewing https://blackswanbrewing.ca/ would have been battling for the honour of the highlight in this segment.

Black Swan Brewing

The aforementioned Black Swan Brewing was the first of a few new school craft breweries to pop up in town and partially responsible for my slide into IP_A obsession. It was from them that I discovered my love for Galaxy and Mosaic IPA hops as they experimented and settled upon a recipe that would become their flagship IPA.

This one, served up by my friend Jamie, is actually a 1-off experimental IPA they call Total Eclipse of the Haze and is so new & exclusive, it is not even listed on their online shop yet https://black-swan-brewing.myshopify.com/ You heard it here first! Great beer! I have only sampled it and will save the full review with branded glassware next week.

Heritage Hops

My next stop was Heritage Hops Brew Company https://heritagehopsbrew.com/ where Margo was kind enough to pour me another growler of the Milkshake IPA. You can see how jazzed she is to be on the blockchain knowing the world will witness their beer initially through the eyes of my legions of followers!

I do have a branded HH glass but it was hiding somewhere in the house as the ladies like to use my pint glasses as water glasses. It doesn't have much of a head because it was the last of the fantastic growler but a delicious, lightly filtered milkshake IPA!

Jobsite Brewing

The last stop on my growler hat-trick bid was to see Phil at Jobsite Brewing Company https://www.jobsitebrewing.ca/ I have known him and his brewery for years starting when he and I pulled computer wires through the place during the initial brewery build. He introduced me to New England IPAs back then and has brewed a solid line of IPAs of all sorts ever since. Hence why Jobsite is often showcased on the shorty of the week.

Plaid Days hazy IPA is so new, fresh and exclusive that it is not even listed on the online store for purchase https://www.jobsitebrewing.ca/buybeer. It is the opposite of lightly filtered as the haze is undeniable and delicious. I love my branded glass too as it feels great to wrap your mitts around the hand-sized bottom and smell the enhanced bouquet you seem to get with the curved tulip shaped top. Thank again Phil!

Do they have Growlers where you are? Same name?

Bumper crop of beers presented here once again Zeke, happy days!

Again a great post and I really love to taste a few of these beers

Greetz and thanks for all your beery support.

Eternal berry support my friend. One day, we will enjoy beer in person!


Hey @zekepickleman, here is a little bit of BEER from @detlev for you. Enjoy it!

Do you want to win SOME BEER together with your friends and draw the BEERKING.

I like that Jobsite growler - the opaque bottle appeals to me.

Yah man it is a nice bold colour and brand.

I kinda like how it lets no light in too though I drink em too quickly to have to worry about bacteria forming.

Orange Growler!

Fast drinking is certainly one solution, some might argue the best solution

Growler means ahem something different here.... 😃

The Dubliners mention in this song about the redlight district in Dublin many years ago called Monto! Funny auld song..

Haha what a tune!

Between the beukerz and montau and mestamellamashenstine and pogue mahone and other gibberish, I couldn't hear the meaning of growler!

I have also heard the word growler being used like a grumpy one as recently made famous by Amber Heard

😁😁🤣

Jobsite for the win.. best looking growler and glass.. to bad the beer looks horrible lol.. I'd say Heritage Hops looks like the most drinkable beer.. and the cutest bartender..

You might like the beer we are brewing at https://revival.house more than the IPAs I like to drink. My brewing partner insists on filtered so that you could read your newspaper through it and barely tasting like anything.

Good thing you are in the land or watery tropical beers where they drink it for hydration like real men instead of IPA hipsters.

And we package it in 10 oz cans so we can feel macho about drinking a entire 6-pack
