Introduction
The Beer Diaries exists to Celebrate and Promote Craft Beer Around the World. We do in-depth interviews with brewers to discuss their breweries and beers, as well as share insights on these amazing people. We've got a YouTube channel and are developing beer-oriented apps to help people enjoy beer even more than they do now.

Welcome to the end of our unofficial Troubled Monk Week, here in the Beer Diaries Local Heroes Guide:

http://thebeerdiaries.tv/beer-review/troubled-monk-homesteader-belgian-saison/
We end off the week with another offering from Red Deer’s Troubled Monk – their Saison, which they relate to the Alberta homesteaders, i.e. the early settlers who made their way west to create a home from the land. This 355ml can pours a slightly hazy, medium tarnished golden yellow colour, with two chubby fingers …

Check out another example of the growing Alberta brew scene, in the Beer Diaries Local Heroes Guide:

http://thebeerdiaries.tv/beer-review/troubled-monk-open-road-american-brown-ale/
Troubled Monk are one of the new wave of Alberta craft brewers who have come on line since the provincial government changed the archaic production limit rules a couple of years ago. Now they are canning a subset of their products, including this ode to cruising on the vast expanses of prairie and mountain highways …

A benefit brew that contributes to a good cause, in the Beer Diaries Local Heroes Guide:

http://thebeerdiaries.tv/beer-review/phillips-benefit-brew-edmonton-area-land-trust/
Here we have the 2015 iteration of Phillips’ Alberta Benefit Brew, wherein they petition votes for the most worthy charity or cause to funnel the full proceeds of the beer’s sales towards. This year, it’s the Edmonton & Area Land Trust, a non-profit organization that promotes conservation efforts for the natural heritage of Edmonton. Oh, …

How to make a coffee stout even more wintry, in the Beer Diaries Winter Guide:

http://thebeerdiaries.tv/beer-review/steamworks-winter-white-stout/
The Winter White Stout is the latest seasonal from this Gastown brewery in Vancouver. Sexy outdoorsy woman depicted on the black and white screened label. What is a ‘white stout’, you may sanely ask? Well, let’s find out! This 650ml bottle pours a hazy, medium golden yellow colour, with one rather skinny finger of weakly …

The food may not be to your liking for Burns Night, but that shouldn't have to also apply to the brews, in the Beer Diaries Winter Guide:

http://thebeerdiaries.tv/beer-review/harviestoun-ola-dubh-special-reserve-16/
The Scottish people, and others who are simply just into such things, will be celebrating the life and work of one Robert Burns today, by honouring his birthday with boiled sheep stomach, turnips and potatoes, and yes, likely Scotch whisky. So, to add our two cents to the whole deal, we present to you this …

It's winter, it's cold, and this is too, but somehow warming, in the Beer Diaries Winter Guide:

http://thebeerdiaries.tv/beer-review/grizzly-paw-alpenglow-winter-ale/
Alpenglow is a strong Scotch-style ale, and the brewery’s winter 2016 release, made with Fuggles hops, and a whole lotta malt (and love, I gather). The label imagery sure makes me want to spend some time in the mountains! This 650ml bottle pours a clear, medium bronzed amber colour, with two chubby fingers of puffy, …

More good stuff from a new Central Alberta craft brewery, in the Beer Diaries Local Heroes Guide:

http://thebeerdiaries.tv/beer-review/troubled-monk-golden-gaetz/
Golden Gaetz is this nascent Red Deer craft brewery’s ode to their city’s evolving downtown thoroughfare, with a style of brew that one might consider a gateway (no pun intended nor proffered) offering of sorts. This 355ml can pours a clear, bright medium golden yellow colour, with two fingers of puffy, loosely foamy, and well …

Some honourary love for the Yukon, in the Beer Diaries Local Heroes Guide:

http://thebeerdiaries.tv/beer-review/yukon-im-leaving-today/
I’m Leaving Today is Yukon Brewing’s take on a hoppy, American-style IPA. The name appears to be a reference to Frank Sinatra’s ‘New York, New York’ – got it, and so let me start spreadin’ the news! This 650ml bottle pours a clear, bright medium copper amber colour, with three fingers of puffy, loosely foamy, …

Some expanding brewpub goodness for cold and boring February, in the Beer Diaries Local Heroes Guide:

http://thebeerdiaries.tv/beer-review/brewsters-bourbon-barrel-aged-imperial-stout/
Calgary’s Brewsters has started releasing some of their bigger offerings in the bomber format, including this, their Imperial Stout, aged in somewhat redundant ‘Kentucky Bourbon barrels’. This 650ml bottle pours a very solid black abyss, with the slightest of dark cola basal highlights, and three healthy fingers of loosely foamy, yet still creamy beige head, …

Holiday bills got you down?  Then try this one out, in the Beer Diaries Winter Guide:

http://thebeerdiaries.tv/beer-review/bowen-island-moontide-winter-ale/
Bowen Island is a contract brewer of ‘craft economy’ beers, who have their products made at the Kamloops Brewing Company. One of their newer packaged offerings is available in the current seasonal mixer – a self-described ‘mild winter ale’. This 355ml can pours a clear, dark orange-cola brown colour, with three chubby fingers of puffy, …

Grab a couple of these to wash down that haggis, in the Beer Diaries Winter Guide:

http://thebeerdiaries.tv/beer-review/mill-street-black-watch/
Today is the traditional Burns Night, where all things Scottish are celebrated via the observing of the birthday of Scotland’s famous poet, Robert Burns. From a craft beer perspective, we have Toronto’s Mill Street Brewery, and their ode to the titular Highland army regiment. This 355ml bottle pours a clear, dark bronzed amber colour, with …

Hoping your 2015 ends with a little bit of the ol' jubilation, in the Beer Diaries Holiday Guide:

http://thebeerdiaries.tv/beer-review/deschutes-jubel-2015/
Jubel is an amped-up, Oregon wine barrel-aged, and Imperialized, if you will, version of Deschutes’ winter seasonal, Jubelale. Apparently this was supposed to be an every ten years sort of deal, but they couldn’t wait that long this time around. Yeah, we understand – it’s just less than a month until the specified ‘best after’ …
