Big Rock Brewery out of Calgary recently released another Brewmaster’s Edition: Life of Chai Spiced Ale. I loved the label (is that Richard Parker I see?) so I had to try it out.
My husband often rolls his eyes when I bring home such things, but he was somewhat impressed with this one. I was more than impressed and was actually craving one with supper last night (don’t judge me).
This is a spiced ale, and while amber in colour, the finish reminds me of white ales I’ve tried before – maybe it’s the cardamom. It’s labeled a ‘strong beer’ at 6%, but it’s not overpowering. I’m a fan!

A & B Liquor received delivery of Licor 43 this week. Licor 43 is Spain’s largest selling export liqueur. It derives it’s name from the 43 natural ingredients used in it’s formula. Licor 43 has a warm golden colour to it. With so many ingredients, it is hard to pinpoint an exact flavour! Depending on the palate, you may taste hints of vanilla, toffee, caramel or a host of other flavours. Licor 43 is extremely smooth and inviting! It is also very versatile, served neat, mixed with coffee, spirits or whatever else your imagination serves up!
