Re: What're you drinking right now?

Vox Populi Double Fruit Punch IPA — Hit shelves recently, canned late Jan. Still packs a very nice hop punch. Reminds me of a heavier Fat Tug. Fatter Tug? Blood Brothers Captain Howdy — This is one heck of a tasty dessert stout. Coconut and hazelnut working wonders. A bit under carbonated but well w...

Re: Ontario will allow restaurants to sell takeout liquor, wine and beer

Long overdue,but seems like a token gesture right now. How much revenue is a newly restricted "take-out only" establishment going to make from this? Will they be charging bar/resto prices for take out beer? I'd be interested if places like Volo liquidated their cellar though.

Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

I recall a Hafis employee told me Bellwoods initially charged the same price for canned products that were previously bottled, but soon reduced them by 25¢ apiece.

Re: What're you drinking right now?

Dupont Monk's Stout — I'd more accurately call this a dark saison. It's seems like they used the same saison yeast, but with dark malt. It is super carbonated and would do well in a chalice and benefits from agitation in the glass. It hits the dark chocolate, dry, bitter notes of a good Irish stout ...

Re: What're you drinking right now?

Hanssens Oude Gueuze — Less carbonated than other lambics (same with Hanssens Kriek) but this is one fine gueuze. Possibly the most intense aroma I've experienced in this style funky sweet lemons and apples, oak. Really good stuff here.

Cigar City Marshal Zhukovs Russian Imperial Stout available online. Anyone know if this is online only or will it hit shelves?

Re: General LCBO Debate & Discussion Thread

LCBO has switched to some flimsy cardboard 6-pack carriers. Introducing them was a good idea (10+ years too late) but please be careful. These new flimsy carriers do not support the weight of 6 beers, the handle will fail under the weight. I sent a sharply-worded email to the LCBO customer service a...

Re: Coronavirus

Haha! This would be an interesting PR issue for Corona for sure. Although probably best not to panic, as with everyone else.

Re: Crossroads (Weston & 401) clearance section

This once (occasionally) exciting clearance section has been kinda quiet for beer these days. I think with online beer sales, there's less special-ordered products ending up here. Most of what does show up was previously (sometimes concurrently) for sale online. Today I came across a couple cases of...

Re: LCBO Online Exclusives

I don't want to speak for the importer/brewery, but I think those stickers that are added come from the lab testing the LCBO make you do. If the ABV in the test doesn't match the bottle label, you have to add a sticker. Yup that's what I thought too, but the discrepancy is more than 30%. Seems unus...

Re: LCBO Online Exclusives

First, thanks for the support... Thanks for the info, excited to open these. What about serving temperature for these two? I notice they say to refrigerate 24 hours before opening. Does that mean serve cold? Also, Dark White says 4.7% abv on the brewery label, with a sticker saying 6.2% abv. What g...

Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

ügener Insel Brauerei Baltic Ale is on shelves. I don't think this was part of a seasonal release. It's definitively a solid golden Belgian ale, fruity, spicy, pretty good. Above average packaging.

Re: LCBO Online Exclusives

I ordered a bottle of Fantome HIver and Dark White last night. How do these beers take to cellaring?
Dark White sounds like something I might want to save for Christmas 2020.
