carmine street beers


Given the choice, I will usually choose wine over beer. I can drink almost any beer in a pinch, but I only appreciate a few. My preferences range from tart sours to heavy stouts. With the deluge of IPAs, it’s a good thing to have a neighborhood place with craft beers I want to drink.

My session started out slowly with a Jack’s Abby Craft Lagers Cranberry Berliner. I couldn’t have necessarily picked out the cranberry flavor in it but enjoyed the sour and tart. For round two, I balanced out the 3.5% ABV of the first with the 10% ABV Finback Brewery Between the Dead Stout. It commenced with coconut on the nose, mixed with chocolate as the first taste, and a bit of a bite on the finish.

Derek had a couple of IPAs – a Finback Bellwoods collaboration and a Grimm Lambo Door.
