Re: Ontario Craft Beer, Imports and Pumpkin Beers at the LCBO (Fall 2019)

Not seen a single beer from the import list in-store. Has the lcbo given up altogether or are they clearing the shelves before I turn up? I have seen Hofbrau Oktoberfest, Maduro Brown and Windswept Glen Moray. maybe find a LCBO with a better manager or try ordering online? Online ordering doesn't s...

Re: LCBO Christmas 2019

Saw a Boneshaker gifts with a skull glass as well as the 6 exclusive Belgian Ales pack that is a mainstay. I can understand some sensitivity to not posting the list too early, but most people's interaction with the LCBO is at store level, so if you don't want the list posted you should ensure that C...

Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

Remaining bottles of Founders CBS have been reduced to $6.65 across the province. Quite a steal. Respectfully disagree. The sale started over a month ago and it seems LCBO still can't get rid of the stuff at that price. I found the CBS very good, but not great, so $6.65 is still too high for me. Wi...

Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

New Grapefruit Sculpin in stores with a packaged date of January 7. Tastes great if grapefruit is your thing. Never had it before so I've tried about 7 times now to get a single through the register but no luck so far. The 6 pack price is really up there, and I think only worth it if grapefruit flo...

Re: Collective Arts

The January batch of LITC is spot on, as others have said. The No. 8 IPA is awesome, and Surround Sound is juicy and bitter AF. Collective Arts ahem been rocking it lately, and I still believe they're the best readily available brewery in the province. Throw in Lake Effect from GLB, and we really ar...

Re: Beer in Grocery Stores

Give it a couple years and I'm sure beer in grocery stores will be better. However, right now its a disappointing shitshow. If you want fresh beer, do not ever consider the grocery store. Popped by the local today and came across multiple IPAs from August. Sadly, not a new experience... Not sure whe...

Re: lcboapi.com and drinkvine.com

Let me start by saying I use Drinkvine all the time and would be disappointed to see it go. You've built a phenomenal tool which has helped me source the beers I really want extremely easily. That said, family changes everything. When we started Toronto Beer Week in 2010, I had no kids. When the dec...

Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

Get 2 bottles and it’s equal to less than $10 for a 660ml bottle of 12% imp stout, compared to $12 for 500ml of Kentucky bastard. Both equally rated on ratebeer. But this way it’s easier to drink half and still have the other half sealed. Edit: can’t wait to try the lickinghole heir apparent, almos...

Re: Collective Arts

Seem to be reading/experiencing more and more inconsistency and quality issues with CA these last couple months. Are they maybe stretching themselves a bit thin?? I agree that they seem to be having inconsistency issues lately. I regularly buy LITC but have found it to be basically a different beer...

Re: Anyone Brewing Something Special for the Holiday's?

Great lakes makes a winter ale. Nickel Brook has Cuvee, which I don't think it's really a Christmas beer but they normally release it over the holidays, I think. Black Oak releases Nutcracker (cinnamon) Porter every year. Plus I'm sure there will be lots of one offs and such if you dig around. Yep ...

Anyone Brewing Something Special for the Holiday's?

I'm sometimes a sucker for novelty and last year I picked up a 12 beers of Christmas pack from Lake Wilcox (surprisingly good) and Whitewater Brewing (Ho ho hum). The two craft beer advent calendars I've seen advertised have already closed for ordering, so my question is whether any Ontario brewers ...
