185/1459) Rockbottom Brewpub, Halifax:  Fathom IPA by Rockbottom of Nova Scotia:  **;  6.9%, 70 ibu;  brewed on site;  mildly citrusy, resiny nose;  dry hop flavours;

The Rockbottom Brewpub is downstairs from Your Father's Mustache and it makes the best onion rings ever.  They are better described as onion beinets.

There used to be a a Rockbottom Club in Bramalea but you would be hard-pressed to find any evidence of this.  It had a dubious reputation which I am not certain was deserved.  I never visited - I was too young - but the middle class suburban hysteria tested one's credulity.

186/1460) Stillwell Bar, Halifax:  Hoppy Fingers American IPA by Unfiltered Brewing of Nova Scotia:  **;  4.8%, 25 ibu;  Unfiltered tries a bit too hard to be edgy enfant terribles but this is a fine, citrusy, resiny APA;

Yes, we went back to Stillwell's.  We liked this place quite a lot and the snacks were great as well.
