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...

Re: Doug Ford

In my experience (working at a liquor store in AB), buck-a-beer tastes so bad that even the case-a-day types would rather splurge on Busch or Boxer or whatever. Lucky Lager was the big seller and even that is barely tolerable. I suppose if he's going after the homeless person demographic then this ...

Re: Doug Ford

Doug Ford as Premier doesn't scare me as much as the hydro bills I've received since returning from five years out of the country. She's as dead as the raccoon I saw on the side of the road this morning. Yes, let's subsidize electricity with public money. It's worked great for Venezuela and gasolin...

Re: A beaver tries to enter a bar and....

I'd imagine a town so overrun by engineering students would not have too many people who had seen a beaver before, let alone known what to do with it. :D

Re: Formerly The Emerald Inn (now The Monk's Kettle)

Thanks for the update. I was wondering what happened. It was a great place to meet for lunch when I was in that area, but then they stopped opening during the day a few months back. Henry VIII is pretty good too. I haven't been to the Crooked Cue in a while, do they still have a GLB guest tap? It wa...

That's the news? Not what I came here for, sorry.

Re: Pilsner Urquell canned two days ago?

I am curious about something. This is a lager. Lagers are lagered . How does a beer that is lagered square with one that is 'fresh'? When does that 'fresh" date start? At packaging? Also, how much can really go wrong in a can? Assuming stable product going in and not outrageously long shelf tim...

Re: Sawdust City

Surprised I had to go back 6 pages to find a Sawdust thread. If anyone is interested, posted something new on Sawdust here: https://theipamythblog.wordpress.com/2018/01/15/keep-the-sawdust-beneath-your-feet/ Focus is on their growth in the context of the Ontario retail environment. Cheers! Nice blog!

Re: Great Lakes

I have also been underwhelmed by this Lake Effect release and that includes on tap. In fact i think I have had it on tap more than in cans, though I have bought a number over of cans in the last month or so when it became available. I'd say it must be a recipe tweak. Quality is fine, flavor is meh.....
