If you read my British Beer Bottles post, you would know that I have been cleaning out my room. While in that post I disposed of several bottles that I had never even sampled, this time around I have managed to get rid of several bottles that I did personally consume, some of them even for this blog.
This wraps up my series of reviews on Newfoundland beers, brought to me by James in June 2015. He brought over a couple bottles of the British IPA, one of which my Dad and I drank when it was fresh, and one of which I foolishly “cellared” until November 2016. They tasted about the same though. If anything, the aged version tasted slightly better.
Along with the previously reviewed Iceberg Lager, James also left me with the intriguing Bennett Dominion Ale. To be honest, I was not expecting much before I opened the bottle, but the label was too beautifully nostalgic to allow for this beer to be drunk without any sort of an observation.
When my Newfie friend James came to visit me, he brought with him a suitcase full of mediocre Newfoundland beer. Now he knew that most of the brews were inferior, but he also knew that they would be a novelty for us out here in BC, and so he brought them to show us a sample of what is brewed on the rock.
During his stay with me, my soccer team had a game, and so James kept himself busy on the sideline with some Granville Island brews, a novelty for him. When I injured myself during the first half, I got to spend the rest of the game drinking with James.
