Re: Collective Arts

I was just ruminating, where is the big fancy LCBO at Bloor and Bathurst? Not a wealthy enough area? For a statist monopoly it sure has limited locations and limits what it sells very unreasonably at locations that would support better. Why is there ONE LCBO on Queen between Coxwell and the DVP, an...

Re: Collective Arts

A funny thing happened. I picked up a couple cans of #7 as a treat from the LCBO. When I was at the checkout, the person kept scanning and re scanning the can. Then tried to type the information in manually. Eventually she looked at me and said "This doesn't seem right. Is this really $4.95? It...

Re: Collective Arts

IPA No. 8 is out https://collectiveartsbrewing.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/11/IPA8_900x900_IG_001.png WTF? I looked for #7 everywhere and was happy to finally try it just the other day when a friend brought me a couple (and glad he did, it was good). Are they just dedicated to cranking out somethin...

Nice!

I am so often cynical about corporate or celebrity fundraising drives as they so often just become marketing stunts, but this is pretty impressive. Especially when you see the huge roster that has signed on. https://www.sierranevada.com/resilience-butte-county-proud-ipa Almost all microbreweries I h...

Re: Collective Arts

new core beer drops tomorrow. it's similar to IPA No. 5 recipe. https://i.imgur.com/SFBtxUT.jpg Whaaah? Can't find #7 in any eLBOw stores. This might just be a good consolation prize... Though, typically I find Columbus a bit vegetal for me, but I'll hold off on judgement until I try this.

Re: Worst Ontario Craft Breweries

Brick, Niagara College, etc. have crappy releases but Trafalgar is a special kind of TIRE FIRE hehe I'll give Niagara College a ton of slack, because they are, after all, an experimental facility. I don't think anybody should be misled into thinking they are a production brewery. Instead, we should...

Re: Worst Ontario Craft Breweries

As for those attempting (or pretending to) make beer. I think Henderson's is the biggest disappointment for me. For all the investment and community hoopla, the beer (or the one's I have had) are just meh. Was there community hoopla for Henderson other than their own promotion? I don't think I have...

Re: Worst Ontario Craft Breweries

Talk about opening a beer can of worms. There really is a quantity over quality thing going on in the Ontario scene, so just out of the sheer requirement to remember what we've been disappointed in I think we need all members of this forum to assist. I'll recuse myself of commenting on any brewers m...

Re: What're you drinking right now?

What were your thoughts on the LA Mikeller location as far as prices? I was blown away by how expensive the beer was at the San Francisco location a few years ago. One of their standard IPAs was almost $12 US for a 10 oz pour. Everything on tap was crazy expensive. It had to be one of the most over ...

Well this is interesting

I definitely would never have thought hops could be a fermentable. Fascinating. Sadly, the article never lives up to it's title by offering an answer to the question posed.

Re: Doug Ford

I've also come to appreciate the public health value of price floors (yeah, me). Having traveled in jurisdictions with absurdly low prices and seen some of the cultural problems. Europe in particular, where drinking is culturally very accepted and cheep alcohol is seeing quite a lot of abuse. For in...

Re: Doug Ford

I'm still waiting for some smart ass brewer to release a 150ml can for a buck each. Actually, it would be a great idea for a craft brewer. Get the premium display space and sell a sample size product that people new to your beer might say, "what they hey? I'll give it a try. It's a small enough...

Re: CRAFT Beer Market - Toronto

I agree except for one big issue, which is the noise level. It's bad enough the tunes are often cranked, but then they have all those screens with adult age children being paid to play children's games on them and the moronic announcers blithering away, sometime two or three different games at he sa...

Re: Amsterdam Brewpub - almost a year later, any thoughts?

It still amazes/disappoints me that Amsterdam would contract a business best known for freezer to fryer 'food' and existing mostly as the cheapest place in the 'hood to drink and eat junk while staring at garage sale memorabilia. The real estate Amsterdam has invested in alone should be worth a bett...
