Just found some GI Pere Jacques on the shelves here in Hamilton. Hadn't heard about this one coming, and nothing yet on the website.

I couldn't even get that far. It could be a good beer if it wasn't the sweetest thing on the planet.

Having a Great Lakes Blackout Stout, will follow with a can of Westbrook IPA

Regarding the Founders release - the LCBO refused to send any of it to Hamilton, according to an employee at the Dundurn location. So he talked to the sales rep for Founders and who went to another store, bought a case of each, and returned them to Dundurn. Gotta game the system! Ah that's explains...

there were a couple boxes of BS hiding in the backroom at King & Spadina at lunch -- had a nice enough employee go bring them out. He came out with a case and jokingly said "You wanted the whole case, right?". My wife shocked him a bit with her enthusiastic "YES!" response. ...

So is all the Rochefort 10 been released? It's hard to imagine it going as quickly as it did. I saw inventory listed and then found it gone by the time I got to the store. The University Plaza location in Dundas had 192 bottles listed on Friday. On Sunday they had ~80 listed. Now they have none. I ...

Garrison DIPA.. this latest batch (bottled oct 11th) tastes different than I remember. Still quite hoppy but a little sweeter than before. Also, kind of sad that I picked this up as soon as it was available in my area and it's already 2 months old. They switched up the recipe earlier this year, I b...

Now I understand what infected (not on purpose) beer tastes like! I wonder if there was something wrong with this batch? There are plenty of great Untappd reviews, maybe it's just better on tap. This isn't an infection, this is just a grade-A shitty beer. Yep. I think this was the worst beer I've h...

There were tons of the Sierra Nevada branded ones in Buffalo a few weeks ago for ~$8 (I was there again this past weekend but didn't look at glasses). Saw them at Consumer's Elmwood and Premier. Not really a DFH fan so I was glad to find the SN version. I doubt the glass makes a big difference over ...

It's likely just tickets from sales that were started but never completed. When you start a transaction on a ticket website your tickets are usually reserved for a set period of time, and if you don't complete the transaction they are released for sale again.
