Drinking more, but then again, I have 3 young kids at home so that explains it...

Re: General LCBO Debate & Discussion Thread

I'd just like to point out how shit the LCBO's ecommerce platform is. The site is slow, counterintuitive in its sort functionality and riddled with crap. I spent about an hour sorting through their current selection, and after putting together a case, I get this message at checkout: "There are ...

Re: Coronavirus

Now, to tie this into Covid-19 since that is the topic of the thread- perhaps people who aren't regular craft drinkers have also been taking advantage of online ordering/shipping deals and are trying out some local breweries. It's wishful thinking but maybe there'll be interest from a wider range o...

Re: Coronavirus

I'd love to see a breakdown on how breweries are affected by this. I read a CBC article about how some brewers couldn't keep their online stores stocked because of unprecedented demand. Of course, that's coupled with keg sales disappearing and probably temporarily laying off a huge chunk of staff. I...

Re: Ontario Beer Delivery Index

Top marks to Amsterdam for today's delivery. Placed the order yesterday evening and it arrived soon after lunch right to my door in Vaughan. Enjoying a super-fresh Space Invader right now and got some double IPA ready for tonight.

Re: Ontario Beer Delivery Index

A great resource - thanks Cass! Received my order from Sawdust City yesterday. Just as a note, I believe all orders that would have been sign at the door delivery are no directly routed to your local post office, so while this will allow us to access a lot of delicious beer, it's not going to cut ou...

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...
