Stuff like GL Blackout and Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout, for 1.80 - 2.20 a bottle. Plus depending on your budget, the sky is the limit for selection - and the staff are great as well. Three for three. Mr. Henman. ...i have no idea what that means. if you're saying that the beer store here could d...

...regarding selling beer and wine at convenience stores and grocery chains: i am not against it, but i believe it is naive to think that you'll be able to pick up a nice, craft-brewed india pale ale or a lovely australian shiraz at your local mac's milk store. obviously, certain stores in certain u...

...i disagree. for one thing, i have been to the US, and alberta, where you can buy liquor in privately owned stores. the selection is horrible, the service completely non-existent and the prices nothing to celebrate. on the other hand, it is a pleasure to shop at the lcbo. the staff are generally e...

are there other beers with pronounced hops that i should try? Well, the Scotch Irish Sgt. Major IPA that you've tried is probably the hoppiest beer currently available at the LCBO. But some other local beers from the LCBO and/or Beer Store you might enjoy would include Mill St. Tankhouse Ale, Black...
