Re: What're you drinking right now?

I love that beer. I wish Half hours on earth would put out more (any?) Beers of that style, their brewer made that for and won a Toronto beer week competition with that recipe.

Re: Uncorked-Wine and Spirits Appreciation

Your reviews are starting to sound like my tasting notes, Belgian!

Those could be futures that were abandoned? Like you pay a deposit, then you have to come collect your bottles in a couple of years and pay the rest. Some number will surely go unclaimed.

I hope they use a bunch of those coat hooks under the bar or something.

Re: Uncorked-Wine and Spirits Appreciation

I've been on a mixed drinks kick lately and I just want to give a shout out to Dillon's vermouth. I bought it on a whim, and it's nice! It's not really a thing I ever thought to get a craft or new world version of. Dillon's in general have generally impressed me. I like their rose gin and their bitt...

Re: Bellwoods Brewery

I thought you needed a distillery license to make beers over 11.9%, in addition to the added cost? I wonder if they have one, or they're just skirting the silly law? Or probably more likely I'm mistaken?

Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

I picked up Orval, bottled late Sept 2020. Pretty fresh! Also FYI LCBO has stopped taking any returns during lockdown. I had planned to return some rather stale beer xmas gifts but was told by the clerk to to hold on to them until lockdown ends... could be a while. I see that Orval has been listed ...

Haven't they had the Prairie stouts for ages? I feel like I ordered a bunch a few months ago.

We've had Zhukov before. Glad to have it back.

Badlands Evolve Or Die. This is such an outstanding beer. So many hops went in this can.

Re: 2020-2021 Winter Season at the LCBO

I thought they did away with that ABV rule a while ago? I vaguely remember something about that. I've never seen BCBS sitting around at 9 bucks either. The last time I saw some on shelves it was $18 US, but I think they've ramped up production since then. I've never seen the variants just sitting ar...

Re: General LCBO Debate & Discussion Thread

The LCBO is by far the worst place I've been in for people ignoring the directions on the aisles. No clue why. I went once at a busy time and it made me uncomfortable, so now I just go when I think it will be slow and it works fine.
