  1. Another good showing by Maritime breweries. I'm somewhat surprised that Garrison didn't received any, but not at all surprised by Picaroon's shut-out.

    1. Garrison, with a few exceptions, seems to be on an overall downward turn these days. Could be their recent "staffing change". As for Picaroons, they're regularly slammed and loved online. Can't slag 'em too hard - brewery of the year in 2011, so they must do the odd thing right. I'd love to have 'em in my town, especially when they do the 12 beers of Christmas.

  2. I’ve heard about Garrison’s turbidity issues, but this is a fairly recent phenomena – Not sure what the problem is but as a professional brewer I’m sure Daniel is all over it. I wasn't aware of the staffing changes.

    Picaroon’s is a different animal all together. Over the years, they’ve failed to convince me that they are capable making a quality beer. On top of the gross inconsistencies, I’ve never come across a beer with so many infection and diactyl issues.
