279/2500) Home: Coconut Lemongrass Thai PA by Louis Cifer Brew Works of Ontario:  **; 6.7%; brewed with creamed coconut, lemongrass and lime;  there is a whiff of lime to the nose; sweet coconut, lemongrass and lime flavours;  unusual but very nice;  it is no surprise that this is used in a couple of the recipes on the brewpub's menu;


280/2501) Home: Go Lanny Go! by Henderson Brewing of Ontario in collaboration with Trolley 5 of Calgary:  **;  6%; a West Coast IPA; citrus and pine nose, similar flavours; very dry after taste; in honour of the great Lanny McDonald, who scored the goal that gave the Calgary Flames their first, and so far only, Stanley Cup;


The label comes complete with a peel-off mustache in case of emergency, though it is the wrong colour.  For another of Lanny's finest moments (this time as a member of the Toronto Maple Leafs) have a look here:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2cG7BgA0YWw
