I will state, that true IPA or not, Keiths does have an absolutely epic label imo. And the brewery does brew a few other things that are very good. Keiths Tartan ale, which they made available for a few months last year was a very enjoyable Scottish ale. Their Stags Head Stout, while failing to meet all the qualities of true stout, I also found to be quite enjoyable.

I didn't give much grief about the stout either, as while they called it a stout, the marketing tagline was "Stout need not be heavy" and it was an example of a lighter bodied stout. While different, I found it enjoyable.

To give some folks an idea of how prevailant Keiths is here in Halifax; the brewmaster Alexander Keith, was actually mayor of Halifax way back when. And to this day we celebrate his birthday with a massive street party downtown every year. Live bands, tents set up serving Keiths, and all sorts of other beer, great party.

Not all Belgian styles contain adjuncts, Pale Ale for example doesn't traditionally. No cream ales, chilli pepper stouts (even sounds gross), nothing with chocolate adjunct, but chocolate malt is fine. No fruit beer either.

Malt, hops, water, yeast. Someone else can drink adjunct beer, leave that stuff out of mine.

Oh man, I love beers with a little heat in them. Just had an awesome, slightly soured RIS that my friend added two shots of pepper juice to. It was fantastic!

Vertical epic 2011 was terrible for me. Those chiles made me wanna vomit. I like beers with chocolate, vanilla, stuff like that. I don't like coffee beers or chile beers though. Or at least haven't had one I like yet.

Lambics use fruit which is an adjunct, so no. I will not drink them.

I know, I was wondering about all sorts of beers when I read that....Belgian beers use sugar. Chilli beers use chilies. Chocolate stouts use chocolate. Cream ales use corn. Seems to really limit one's beer choices I think.

When the Blues finally win the Cup, I sure as hizzel won't be hoisting a Budweiser - but thanks for all the hops, In-Bev!
Allow me to concur with your repeatedly stated wishes concerning National Hockey results, sir: GO BLUES!!!

Goes to show, ain't no accounting for taste - I haven't found a beer made with wheat I could drink more than one of. I'm still trying though - I had an all Saphir hopped imported weiss beer just last night. Another no-go, unfortunately.

As far as I'm concerned, Nova Scotia has nothing to apologize for: beer schmeer - you guys produced Al MacInnis, the most underrated NHL defenseman ever. Big Al was one heck of a lot more than a big shot. He made perfect defensive play look so easy, you didn't even notice it. If I ever see any of this fake IPA, I'll try a six.
