144/2744) Quidi Vidi Brewery. St. John's:  British IPA by Quidi Vidi of Newfoundland:  *1/2; 5.7%; leafy, grassy;

This was a tasting flight.

145/2745) Quidi Vidi Brewery, St. John's:  My Milkshake Brings All The Buoys To The Wharf by Quidi Vidi of Newfoundland:  **; a 7.5% mango milkshake IPA; fresh mango flavours, citrus zest finish;

Yes, Quidi Vidi brews many different beers.

146/2746) Quidi Vidi Brewery, St. John's:  Dayboil Session IPA by Quidi Vidi of Newfoundland:  *1/2; 4.5%, 43 ibu; citrusy with a bitter, herbal aftertaste;

I gather the village of Quidi Vidi was absorbed into St. John's a number of years ago.

147/2747) Quidi Vidi Brewery, St. John's:  Cappuccino Stout by Quidi Vidi of Newfoundland:  **; 6.5%, 20 ibu; contains lactose; sweet mocha notes;

The trail at Signal Point is every bit as hazardous as Peggy's Cove, or the CN Tower Edgewalk for that matter, but no one seemed worried which made things a lot easier.

148/2748) Our room at the Best Western, St. John's Newfoundland:  Weizen Hammer Weizenbock by Quidi Vidi of Newfoundland:  **;  8%; very yeasty, sweet with notes of cloves and alcohol; mostly cloves to the nose; at 8%, this is well suited good for sharing;

The odd thing is the hotel cannot be found using a GPS.  We set it to the airport and it was just beyond.
