249/1230) Home: Gryphon Gold Lager by Wellington County Brewery of Ontario: **; 4.5%; brewed in Guelph to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of the University of Guelph; pours blonde; brewed with Saaz hops, which is not always a plus where I am concerned; a refreshing lager/pilsner hybrid of sorts; the Saaz hops are under-stated; it's like an edgy lager with a mildly sweet after-taste;
My first post-procedure beer was brewed in honour of my second son's University (not only that, he tracked it down and brought it here to me as well) and drank from a University of Waterloo Engineering glass given to me by my first son. Those two stars may owe a bit to sentiment.
Speaking of anniversaries, today is the thirtieth anniversary of the Mississauga train derailment and I had the best view possible. I was at a University of Toronto party at the top of the CN Tower. The whole sky lit up. It was quite something.
