There are a lot of fruit beers in this years release, and as a friend of mine here at work pointed out, only 1 Ontario craft beer.

While it's not a bad release, with some new faces, it would have been nice to announce that beers from other parts of the nation were included. The price points (if they stay the same) are terrific again.

My take? What a pathetic selection 6 of 14 in the fringe fruit beer area and the balance of the bad 50% constituted by boring boring Deuchars. Happy to see the Weinstephaner back and the Hopback, too. The rest? I'll be spending my money to the south or in Quebec... again.

Nice to see a solid Thwaite's beer (Lancaster Bomber) making the list. Fingers crossed this opens to door for more of their range. One of the better brewers in the UK

Sorry - that, too. Looking forward to it.
