I'd love to try that... Nutcracker is one of my all-time favourites! Also one of mine and I have to agree with TheBeeraholic.

A general rule of thumb... Don't age: Any beer below 8% ABV (aside from wild ales, lambics, etc) But you can age Black Oak's Double Chocolate Cherry Stout for a good few years. A 5 year old bottle has great soured cherry & cocoa flavours. The Nutcracker ages well, too. While drinkable, I found ...

A snifter of Goose Island Bourbon County at the Goose Island Wrigleyville Brewpub after my first Cubs game at Wrigley Field.

As I recall, it was the first time I paid double digits for a beer in a bar.

Got a friend in line for me at Kingston. She got there at 8:15 and was 15th in line. They're supposed to have 60 cases. Line continues to grow.

In other news, the BA Cameron's beers are showing stock. Wow! Did they ever pick a bad release day! Was at Cornwall & Trafalgar LCBO in Oakville today and since the Westy wasn't in, I asked about the Cameron's. I was told that they weren't carrying it, but could get it at the brewery just up th...

Sign on the door at Bloor and Royal York that basically said "as of today, we don't have it. We're not making a list and when we get it, it's first come, first served, limit one per customer."

Oakville store said they would be getting on Friday and expected to sell out in 5 minutes.

I believe that was Robinson's in Mississauga. I recall seeing some Hart-Robinson beers for a short time.

Will be heading down in mid September, and we figured since we're driving may as well head into Mentor OH and see if I have any luck finding some BORIS the Crusher for my pre and post wedding parties. BTW anyone in Newmarket Oct 2nd is more than welcome to stop in for a bottle or two as well as som...
