Re: Coming Soon to the LCBO

For such a large brewery in Ontario, GLB makes it stupidly difficult to buy their beers direct, if you don't want a case of stuff. I don't think you can even just show up at the brewery to buy what you want anymore? Pretty sure you can get singles / mix and match etc if you go to the retail store n...

Re: Who are the best choices for cider?

As far as I know, Revel and West Avenue are the best of the cideries out there, but I'm not as familiar with them as I am the breweries. Agreed. I personally find West Avenue more consistently good, but partly that is because Revel does a lot of interesting experimental stuff that are misses for me...

Re: North Works Brewing Co.

Tomorrow’s drops I'm probably just an old fogey but the idea of beer "drops" vs just calling them "releases" or "availability" or something similar drives me bonkers. :wink: Sorry lol, I don’t really disagree No worries. :) There are several other beer social media phr...

Re: Modern trends

I think the "trends" part of all this is where the issue is. Hazy IPAs, pastry stouts etc. all have examples where there is an early beer in that style that was amazing. Then everyone started doing them including a lot of brewers that are less skilled or don't have that style down. I activ...

Re: Best Traditional ON Craft Brews

I'd argue Godspeed Kuro is maybe the best straight up stout in Ontario right now. Nice balance, flavourful and drinkable.
Black Oak Nutbrown always solid.

There's also an NB Liquor store in town. Otherwise not much in the area that I am aware of. Good luck!

Re: Montreal

Has anyone here ever been to the Mondiale de la Biere festival in Montreal? It's coming up May 22-25, 2019. https://festivalmondialbiere.qc.ca/en/ Looking it over, I'm skeptical of it being anything special. I have been several times but haven't been recently. Our usual approach to it was to try an...

Re: lcboapi.com and drinkvine.com

Well thanks for doing it this long either way! What are your options? Would some volunteers help at all? I can't code but would be happy to help with updates once it's set up. How much would you have to charge for the site to make it worthwhile? Have you looked into sponsors at all?

Cheers!

Re: Free trade?

Does anyone know if Ontario breweries also pay the lab testing fees? If so it's not really going to be a great argument that they are unfair barriers.

It would be nice to get more imports from across Canada frankly, but personally I'd also like to see mandatory date coding in that case.

Re: Collective Arts

To be fair, its nearly impossible for breweries to survive selling one can at a time to untappd tickers... Having said that, it is odd to sell a special release in 4-packs when all regulars sell as singles. The opposite strategy would seem to make more sense. I think the sales trends at the LCBO pr...
