Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

Grapefruit Sculpin is definitely delicious and crushable, but it's somewhat sugary. If you like bone-dry IPAs, or you don't like any notable sweetness in your beer, you may not like it. I'd say it's more of a summer beer, complete with one of these: https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/6...

Re: LCBO Online Exclusives

So disappointed...I was online at 8:00, but didn't check that fervently. Agreed on the lottery system and introduction of captchas. Seems strange for something like beer, but there was a time when they had special beers through Vintages, so why not? Any recommendations for great saisons within reac...

Re: Bellwoods Brewery

The latest newsletter featured a survey, asking if we'd be interested in having their beer available for delivery. If you have a strong opinion on this, let 'em know!

Re: "Peak" Craft Beer?

The top comments on the article read almost like a parody of sullen, knee-jerk conservatives. Reminiscent of the editorial cartoonist "Kelly" from The Onion: https://www.theonion.com/c/editorial-cartoon

Re: The Pint Public House

I passed by after the game last week and was curious about it. Looks like they put a bit of thought into the craft lineup. For better or for worse, these new chain sports pubs are ever so slightly redeeming the drinking scene in Toronto. Know what would be awesome? Some kind of tap-exchange program ...

Re: The Six Brewing

Why, I remember way back in the '90s when we just used to call it "The T-dot, O-dizot."

Come to think of it, "Northern Touch" would be a great name for a beer.

...BRB, starting a new brewery.

Re: Rorschach Brewing

I tried one of their IPAs recently (Rorschach Reverse Psychology) and thought it was just about perfect. I'd give them a shot!

Re: Article about 355ml cans comeback

Hmmm. The poll reveals a pretty even split. Maybe neither size is ideal? I had some Anderson Brown at a busy bar last week, straight from the can, and liked it a lot. But I found it was way too easily dispatched. Buying all those cans at a crowded bar feels like a waste of time, energy and money, wh...

Re: Keep6 Imports opens online bottle shop

Hey all, I'm very interested in this new Dieu du Ciel Saison du Parc offering from Keep6: http://www.keep6imports.com/shop/dieu-d ... on-du-parc

It's got a 96 percentile/93 style percentile on RB. I don't have much room in my fridge so I'd be happy to split this a few ways. Any takers?

Re: Bellwoods Brewery

Went to the store today. Plenty of stock left. The sales clerk said they expect it to last maybe another week, so you don't necessarily have to rush.
