Whether the LCBO makes it easier or if individual store owners can bypass the whole LCBO process.

on the federal level, the new legislation to allow all alcohol between provinces should help?

Re: Talk or Action?

This is good news for a few beer enthusiasts who have connections to effectively become beer stores. Its fair competition. It can only be better for the craft industry. The LCBO can go back to doing what they do best.

Re: Too many milkshakes

I liked the novelty when the first wave of Bellwoods Milksharks came out, but they are just too sweet and non-beery. Overall I've always disliked lactose beers of all stripes (few exceptions). I'm also lactose intolerant so it works out well. Surprising how many people are lactose intolerant - whic...

Re: Coming Soon to the LCBO

On the less exciting side, an IPA from Creemore (ugh) and two new offerings from Side Launch (including their highly anticipated light lager :roll: ) that mean the death of the outstanding Mountain Lager (boo hoo). But a new German Pilsner from GLB offers hope - maybe it will become my go-to Ontari...

Re: Stone City Ales in Kingston

I did the three year juggernaut last Christmas. The 2015 was still the best vintage, the 2016 is significantly more boozy, and 2017 was good, but more bitter and less booze. Looking forward to the 2018, but with losing their head brewer, I wonder what 2019 holds for SCA..? SCA had the 2017 and 2018...

Re: Dominion City

Quebec was the same in the 70s. December you would be in a half hour lineup, or more. Buying beer at the corner store was such a relief.
