Hi glugg: Two absolute musts, in my opinion, are Volo Cafe and the Mill Street Brewpub. Also, check out for some good advice. If you can, let us know when you will be where, and you might be able to meet up with a few of us. Cheers, Joe. P.S. Interesting that a person coming ...

Perhaps a simple question LCBO is in order: "what is the procedure for replacing faulty product?" Put the ball in their court; they're a hugely-funded Crown Corp put here to prectect you after all. The LCBO is actually quite good about taking back product, but I expect that the situation ...

While I think this is great news, I worry a little bit the beer will suffer because of the LCBO's horrendous treatment of its stock. Will you be taking any precautions, Perry, to ensure the beer is presented at its best?

How about a real lambic? I sorely miss beers like Boon which we used to get a long time ago. Yes! A lambic that's not sickly sweet. That being said, Cass, I suppose we simply didn't buy enough of the Boon products, or else the LCBO would still stock them. And, unfortunately, Cantillon is made with ...

As a former resident of Northern Ontario--North Bay to be exact--I decry the erosion of local industry and its negative economic effects. As a beer lover, I don't see the loss of Northern as significant at all.

Cheers, Doug

Given the sophomoric tone of the ad campaign, I doubt I'll watch the movie (either at the cinema or rented) nor will it make me thirsty. We need a none-of-the-above option for the survey.

The July 2006 edition of Entertainment --the guide that comes with the The Movie Network--has a brief article entitled "Sweetness and light in a six-pack" by Raymond Beauchemin. Here's the interesting quotation: "Portland Beer House & Restaurant, 600 King ST. W. Fifty beers on tap this month, do...

The first time I tried SATB, I didn't like it. I found it sickly sweet. The second time I tried it, I thought it was fantastic--rich and complex. The difference: the first was a relatively new bottle (three years-old), the second aged about 10 years. SATB seems to need at least six-years in the bott...

If I'm a little slow and I've missed something, please forgive me, but how does your business work. Are you a U-Brew with four recipes? If I wanted your beer, would I have to come in and brew it myself? Could someone walk in and buy a case? Is there a minimum order? Is it available in any bars or re...

I would like to go for Southern Tier. It's been to Toronto before in small quantities at Volo (just like Great Divide), and it's pretty close geographically, if that means anything to the LCBO. But by the same token we could just as easily set up a bus trip to New York and all go buy some... That s...

Replies: 3

I agree that this merger seems farfetched. However, if it were come to be, there would be an interesting aspect in Ontario—a national brewer that doesn’t own stock in The Beer Store, their main method of distribution. Would they choose to invest in The Beer Store, thereby investing in the competitio...

Joey, as far as I know, Great Divide does not have an agent. Ralph at Volo had to coordinate this himself when he originally brought it in last year. And the whole one person paying up front thing is actually what we were geting at earlier, and what the LCBO seemed to be discouraging. As far as I'm...

I have never paid duty when i stayed overnight even just onenight, but I was basically just lucky, since you're right that its technically 48 hours I used to think that they calculated the 48 hours based on the exact time of day that you arrive, but I've since learned that they use the date of arri...
