Cranky Friday Links - April 13, 2012

It's Friday the 13th and time for this week's Cranky Friday Links. Click to view more.

Have you ever wondered what the codes on your beer bottles meant? As you probably thought, that weird code is the date information when the beer was bottled, here's a site that helps you understand the date codes, as each brewery's code differs. (Link)

I checked out Peasant Cookery with my kickass friend Vanessa last week. Check out my review of their poutine! Spoiler: It's awesome! (Link)

Want to try beer from the NEWEST brewery in Manitoba, Farmery Brewery? They have their very first batch available to try at their Luxalune Gastropub in Winnipeg! (Link)

If you love beer as much as me, you should be on Untappd by now. It helps keep track of beers you've tried over the years. Not only that, you can share photos of said beer on your iPhone/android phone. (Link)

Hey people who are drinking Coors Light Iced T. Want to know what was the original tea beer in Canada? Mill Street's Lemon Tea has been out for a few years already. (Link)

Too late now, but this past Saturday was the National Beer Day in USA, a day to honour the end of prohibition in the States. (Link)

Steven Stamkos got his 60th goal of the season this past Saturday, against the Winnipeg Jets nonetheless. This is an incredible feat in NHL. (Link)

Sometimes being a beer snob isn't the best, especially if you want to help change friends' beer habits (Link)

Some beers to expect to come to Manitoba in near future (or already): Okanagan Spring Summer Weizen, Steam Whistle, Dead Frog Brewery and apparently more beer from Howe Sound.

I did a quick poll on Twitter asking what brewery or brand changed beer for the rest of their life. I got 16 responses. The most popular response was Unibroue! Unibroue, in fact, changed my beer tastes as well. Other breweries included in the poll were: Coors Light, Big Rock,Green Flash, McAuslan, Firestone Walker, Half Pints, Summit, Westmalle, Rickard's and Abita/Purple Haze/Turbo Dog.

Lastly, I'm working on a list of Canadian Breweries, if I'm missing any breweries, let me know! (Link)
