Re: Kensington Brewery, Collective arts and *barf* another Duggan project

Just to clarify, we're not working with Duggan's in any capacity. The use of quotes is a little confusing.

Re: Kensington Market - Toronto's new beer destination?

Now that Kensington Brewery about to open their new building, Collective Arts announcing they're taking over the Sas-mart space, and evidently another brewpub opening in the old burger bar space. And to add various articles talking about people wanting to open bars/brewpubs in the market as it's ab...

Re: Kensington Market - Toronto's new beer destination?

The neighbourhood has certainly changed, most of it positive. But you're right, I think the opportunity to get a bargain on a nice Victorian has expired. :lol:

100% down with this. When the bar opens we're going to make sure that we've got one low/very low ABV offering at all times.

The interesting thing is that it's the brewery that selects which category their beer will be judged in. How would you suggest they do it differently Mike? I actually think the current system works pretty well. My point was just that sometimes beer drinkers are surprised to see what categories the ...

We'd gladly sell more beer North of Eglinton if anyone would have us. Tough market for sure. Much simpler to focus on D/T and east/west Toronto. Curious - what are generally the reasons? Lack of knowledge of craft? Cost? Bought taps? Bought taps are every where, North or South of Bloor, so I don't ...

There has been a very small increase, but AFAIK it's on the manufacturing side only. From our perspective it is not enough to raise our prices (draught) but we've had to move our packaged up slightly. To be honest, this decision was made to accommodate more than just the tax increase. If your pint ...

Unfortunately I'm out this year (heading off on a two week vacation to S.American in a month) Not to derail the topic of CBC... Whereabouts in SA? I'm in Ecuador until early May, then back to Peru. Have uncovered more than 20 new breweries/brewpubs here since last visiting at the end of 2012, thing...

Unfortunately I'm out this year (heading off on a two week vacation to S.American in a month) but Brock, Dave and Kyle will be attending. I'm extremely jealous.

Have fun everyone!

Just reading through the latest comments and realizing that there hasn't been this much healthy, substantive debate on here in a while. It's always good to take stock of where our beer scene is at and try to envision what could be done better. Hopefully some of our brewers read these comments and t...
