Let’s be honest…there are worse ways to kickstart the weekend than with a cold beverage.

And yet, it’s easy to fall into a routine of buying the same couple of beers or spirits at your favorite watering hole or the LCBO. Of course, there’s always going to be your standard go-to’s. But mixing it up (get it…mixing???) makes for a fun outing.

With that in mind, we’re taking a shot (bet you thought we would stop with the drinking puns after that first one) at finding you a weekly selection of spirits to liven up your Friday.

This week why don’t your try…



The lazy days of summer are upon us, commanding us to seek out patios and barbecues.

Peel Out is ideal for either. The initial pour is a warm, straw-gold, with an inviting aroma. A lacey thick fingered foam and a blend of tropical tastes (mainly citrus and mango) gives way to a firm bitterness.

Hints of pine, pineapple and malts are present throughout, and there is a warming character to the whole drink. It lets you know that there is a high ABV, but without it overpowering your experience.

It’s a balanced (but strong) beer with an overall firm body and medium carbonation. Best paired with something from the beef side of the menu to absorb some of that 8.8% ABV.
