Re: General LCBO Debate & Discussion Thread

Cite the evidence that "privatize the LCBO" was part of the new government's platform. I'm sure you will find it was not. Perhaps I would, if that had been a thing that I had actually said and not merely a strawman of your own construction. I obviously misinterpreted "dismantling pro...

Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

Does anyone know when the hell the Collective Arts Liquid Arts Fest IPA is finally hitting shelves? Apparently there was a delay, then CA said on social media it would be out this week. It's still not in the system though. Need this beer! Bought one from the brew shop when I was back home. It's so ...

Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

I don't mind paying a bit more to support local brewers I like. For example, Spaten Munich is, what .60 less per can than Side Launch Mountain at my local Loblaws? They are pretty similar beers (not to mention, Spaten comes in a slightly bigger can). But still, I often buy the Mountain, especially i...

Re: Beer in Grocery Stores

Anyone notice price differences between the grocery stores and LCBO/TBS? The other day I bought some Side Launch Pale Ale and DAB (Dortmunder) - both 500ml - at Sobey's. I think I glanced at the prices below the cans before picking them up but didn't notice any price difference from the LCBO where ...

Buffalo - Coca Cola Field

Went to a Buffalo Bisons game here yesterday. Very pleasant experience from start to finish. The best thing, though, is without a doubt the craft beer selection. First of all, it looks like Founders has made a deal to be one of the primary breweries in the park as a whole (i.e. not confined to a &qu...

Re: Buffalo NY - what to see and explore?

No more Lagunitas at Real Sports? That was the only thing I could drink there the last few times I went (haven't been since 2017). Still there, but the last couple times I tried it on tap I wasn't particularly impressed. Found it to be way sweeter than past renditions. I went for a Boston Lager ins...

Re: Buffalo NY - what to see and explore?

True, but serviceable enough. I remember the days not too long ago when the arrival of Southern Tier IPA at the LCBO was a very big deal indeed!

Re: Buffalo NY - what to see and explore?

Beautiful. Now I'm getting excited! Also, just in case anyone is interested, I emailed the Anchor Bar (a likely destination for some of my hoser friends) and asked for their draught list (or the craft portion thereof), as it does not appear on the website. They were nice enough to get back to me wit...

Re: Grand River Brewing

Kind of sad that this brewery has faded into irrelevance. It was an important craft pioneer when it first opened, at least to me. The original Galt Knife was a terrific beer, Plowmans was a serviceable English pale ale, and Russian Gun has, at times, been an excellent imperial stout. Oh well.

Re: Buffalo NY - what to see and explore?

Hi guys: Going to a Bisons game in a couple of weeks with a fairly large group, not all of whom will be beer geeks. What do you recommend downtown / in the immediate vicinity of the stadium? Pearl Street? Pizza Plant? Anyone know if there is anything decent on tap at Anchor Bar? As I said this will ...

Re: Brunswick Bierworks

I went this weekend. Hours are, indeed, 11 - 5 on Saturdays, though I was told they plan to expand (probably to a Thursday through Sunday schedule) very soon. This weekend, for example, they were open both days for a special Masters promotion. The tasting room/pub is quite roomy with lots of communa...
