Re: Cask Days 2018

Not sure if they had it last year...but when I went 2 years ago there was no early access for Session 1. Everyone with tickets / baller passes / etc got same entry time for Session 1. Only the Night and Saturday ones had early access. Hmmmm... I'll have to recheck my previous years tickets. Maybe I...

Cask Days 2018

Early access for the Friday afternoon session as an add-on isn't available this year. That's annoying. (Aside from Brewer's Gathering and presumably the seminars which I don't want.) Was this a known thing that I missed?

Had I known that I would have tried to get the early bird tickets. :-?

Sigh.

Re: Witchstock 2018

Of course I'll post my usual complaint about not posting the beer list before tickets are available. Sigh.

Re: Witchstock 2018

Thought about it. In my younger days I'd likely have gone. I've found I can't drink as much as I used to. I won't get my monies worth with "unlimited" samples. I never went to the previous one and I've never been to their Hafis location to see how 750 people fit in there but that number is...

Re: Bar Hop King vs. Bar Hop Brewco...

Do both. Do afternoon rooftop patio at BrewCo and later on King St. Food and beer menus are different.

Re: Downtown Toronto LCBO’s

Summerhill, King & Spadina and Queen's Quay is good too. King-Spadina turned out well, you're lucky it dropped right by you guys. It's also a LC store that's not closed up at 9pm sharp like the 'service' so many offer. 11 PM!! Yes it has been very handy. The late hours are nice too. It'll be go...

Time is hard. :lol:

Other than doing the odd lottery, I've given up on extremely limited releases either via lcbo.com or in-store. I just can't be bothered anymore with the hassle, frustration and waste of time.

Re: General LCBO Debate & Discussion Thread

So with the PCs and Doug Ford soon to be in power in Ontario and supposedly a willingness to make further changes to how booze is done here, what agenda should bars, breweries/wineries/cideries and the general public be asking of the soon-to-be new administration? (Got to get something good out of a...

Re: Montreal

Where do you guys find it s good to stay (clean, north of downtown, reasonable price.) All my visits accommodations prior to the last one were downtown. The last visit was with eight people and we split an AirBnB near the Outremont Metro. I was initially like "Why all the way up there?!" ...

Re: Montreal

I always go to these places:
DDC
Vices et Versa
Benelux
Cheval Blanc
Le Saint-Bock

Bottles:
Rahman (it's near DDC) - check bottling dates though
Peluso

If you want some arcade experience as well then Northstar Pinball and Arcade MTL also have pretty decent beer available.

Re: Whitewater brewing - Class V IPA

I agree this is what the wife and I call a disappointing IPA. More a British style malty reddish ipa, than a hoppy American style. While I haven't had that one, an English style IPA is quite nice if you don't want a bitter hop bomb. If it doesn’t have citra, mosaic or simcoe, don’t bother Lots of n...

Re: Bar Hop 2 (Peter St)

It looks like they've settled on Monday $5 nights. Went to BH1 on Sunday, BH2 on Monday and BH3 on Tuesday. :P Not on purpose, it just worked out that way. The space is somewhat similar in layout to BH1 in that there's a front section (with rollup garage door and presumably patio out front), tables ...

I've got BH1 and BH2 dangerously close to me. It's really nice. Enjoy! 8)

Now I'll have two choices ahead of going to the Linsmore for live music, The Wren and BH3.
