Coors Light Iced T will suck. No link, it just will.

Ben takes on the Winnipeg Jets' Budweiser Fan Brew (Link)

Mike is finally starting up a blog called Beer Bits, he reviewed Boulevard's Unfiltered Wheat (Link)

Grant has a conspiracy theory about the relation between MP Vic Toews and the TV hit series Mad Men (Link)

Fort Garry's Kona Stout will be coming... one day.. soon.. hopefully. You can try it on tap at some of Winnipeg's best watering holes.. and Smitty's (Link)

I have to give props when props are due. The other day I had a bad case of Granville Island's English Bay Pale Ale. I sent a message to them on Twitter. Not only did they acknowledge that. They had their regional product manager Jesse come to Brandon and gave me some fresh beer and swag! When breweries listen, it makes me feel like the business cares about its clientèle. Jesse deserves a promotion! (Link)

Half Pints' Black Galaxy Black IPA (Formerly Black Scrapper) is apparently coming out this week. I'm hoping to try it, but knowing Half Pints' seasonals, I won't be. It sounds delicious. (Link 1, Link 2) so if your in Winnipeg tomorrow St Patty's Day (March 17th), go get some at the brewery, as you won't be seeing it at any MLCC location. Lucky you if you do! (Link)

North2DetroitSouth2Windsor did a piece on an upcoming event for bands in Windsor, Ontario titled Windsor Music Scene 101 for Bands. (Link)

Lastly, my review of the past week (also ma 1ère revue bilangue!!!) - Gros Mollet by Microbrasserie du lac St-Jean (Link)

Oh, actually make this lastly. Here's a piece I did on dieting while continuing to be able to enjoy a nice pint of delicious beer! (Link)
