    Heady Topper
    Got to tell ya, Vermont has some pretty good micros including one of the best IPAs I have ever tasted. The Alchemist Brewery used to brew several good beers but Irene wiped out the main brewery in Waterbury. But, just down the road from Ben & Jerry's is the Cannery that brews and cans 4-packs of 1 beer, Heady Topper, a big double IPA that is to die for. They suggest you drink it from the 16 oz can to not waste the hoppy goodness but it doesn't matter how you drink it, it is one of the best IPAs available anywhere.

    Along with this beer, there are plenty other good ones here like Long Trail, Harpoon, and so on.

    So far this week this is what I have sampled, which are not all from VT.

    La Chouffe - Houblon

    Lawson - Rye Ale (VT)

    Trapp Helles, Amber Ale, Dunkle, and the seasonal smokey Trosten, which are all brewed less than 100 yards from my chalet.(VT)

    The Alchemist - Heady Topper (VT)

    Harpoon Laviathin Barley Wine Ale (VT)

    Rock Art - Extreme 2X IPA and @X Smoked Porter (VT)

    Harpoon - Maple Wheat 100 Barrel Series (VT)

    MacTarnahan - Spine Tingler Golden Trippel

    And I have another day to sample more before coming home.

    This week in Stowe VT was amazing for a summer vacation in March. It has been warmer here all week than it usually is in the summer time. It was 87F yesterday and we Snow Shoed bare chested as well as hiked today in Wiener Woods with nothing but pants and boots.

    Barely a cloud in the sky all week and we have had our windows all wide open the whole week.

    Just gorgeous here at Trapp Family Lodge on Stowe Mountain!!!

    Vermont sounds like a great place. It was nice last time I visited there which, unfortunately, was probably about 30 years ago.

    Also, Vermont is the constituency of Sen. Bernie Sanders, one of few members of US Congress who tells in like it is and isn't a total lackey of the plutocracy. Kudos to Vermont voters.

    Meanwhile beer fanciers here in my home province of Ontario don't lack for breweries, large and small. See the Canadian Beer Index. Or check out Ontario Craft Brewers site. Typically Canadian beers are slightly stronger and a fair bit less fizzy than US beers but it's hard to generalized in today's marketplace.

    I'm not a connoisseur or a really big beer drinker for that matter, but my favourite brew for quite a while had been Sleeman Honey Brown Lager.


    Sleeman is brewed in Guelph, Ontario. Sleeman was founded in 1834 and remained in operation 'till 1933 when its license was revoked for running bootleg through Detroit, Michigan. It was started up again in 1988 by a Sleeman family descendant. For better or worse it's owned today by Sapporo Brewery of Japan; (see Wiki)

    Someone needs to beef up the membership process. I can't believe it's all that hard.
