For eastern Lake Ontarians mostly, but I am happy to have found a new supplier, C's Farm Market in Oswego. If I were to guess off the top of my head, I would say 125 different beers but some nice finds like Old Chub in a can from Colorado. So not at the scale of Finger Lake Beverages in Ithaca or the guys in Rochester and Buffalo but they are a growing concern being an expansion of a long standing fruit and veg wholesaler. Best of all they said they would order in anything they might be able to find with a little lead time. I can confrim they went to get a 2-4 of Syracuse Pale Ale for me with a smile. We hit Oswego as a day trip from Kingston a couple times a summer so its a good find for us.
Brewers noted: Dogfish Middles Ages, Brooklyn, Southern Tier, Victory, Unibroue Smuttynose, New Hampshire, Allagash, Rogue, Magic Hat, Chimay, Leifmans, Saranac, Sackets, Lake Placid, Wachusett, Stone, Flying Dog, Yeungling, Cooperstown, Ommegang, Blue Point, Long Trail, Young's, Liberty, Abita, Harpoon, Otter Creek, etc., plus regional mini-macros and macros.
If you get to Oswego, check out King Arthur's for the steak and the IPA.
First, I have read in a recent Ale Street News or Great Lakes Brewing News that Party Source is reinventing itself so hold tight on that little dream. I had one great experience there and one not so great so I have some faith.
I would say the shop in Oswego is one small step behind them now but not far off. And if I think about it the only difference with Galeville is really the completeness of the brands available in each line. If Galeville has 7 Brooklyns, for instance, C's may have 4. But given their keen attitude to bring in special requests, you might find it is an easier way to get what you want. If they knew they had a customer base in south-eastern Ontario, they also sound like the type from their emails that would go a long way to help the customer get what they want.
This is such a dream come true! Oswego being roughly 2h45 h from Ottawa, this store would be a great intermediate between here and Rochester.
And dont forget to stop by Greene's when going through Oswego. They have a few decent beers on tap brewed for them by Custom Brewcrafters. _________________ Ian Guénard

BTW, I dont know if you guys are aware, but SAQ's have recieved 750ml bottles of Dupont Moinette and Floreffe Triples.
Coincidentally I just acquired a 750ml bottle of that Floreffe Tripel from someone in Québec City today. The Dupont Moinette - is that the saison, the Dupont Biologique? I have a bottle of the blonde in my fridge, and I'll be sharing a big bottle of the brune (hopefully) soon.
