7/655)  Home:  Screamin' Beaver Oak Aged Double IPA by Beau's All Natural Brewing of Ontario:  **1/2;  this is from their Wild Oats series, number 03;  has a sharp, citrusy nose and delicious, hop forward flavours;  from their mix pack; 

The cashier at the Queen's Quay LCBO ran to the back to get this for me - it wasn't even on the shelf yet.  We had got to talking - he has actually visited the brewery.  A few guys basically bought a farm and it was a slow day when he showed up so everyone sat down and had a beer.

8/656)  Home:  Anchor Steam Beer by Anchor Brewing Company of California:  *1/2;  has a biscuity, malty nose;  considering who it is from, this is a bit ordinary;

Anchor dates back to 1896 but they became a force when Fritz Maytag, of that Maytag family bought the brewery in the 1960s.  Often when I am enjoying a craft beer I raise my glass in a silent toast to Mr. Maytag as I might not be drinking such good beer if not for him.
