Re: How can craft bars differentiate themselves

The first sample I tried wasn't that great, but that was before they opened and were still experimenting w the system. I've had it a few times since they opened now and I had a can a couple nights ago and was blown away. Great beer

Re: How can craft bars differentiate themselves

Most of the breweries from GTA area all come to Ottawa on the same two trucks, currently. RG Transfer and Cold hauls Direct are two companies that do distribution and many West Ont breweries are coming to Ottawa via these companies. Nickel brook, Muskoka, Flying Monkeys, GLB, Side Launch, Sawdust Ci...

Tipping should not be included in the price. I want it left up to the guest how much they choose to leave, be it 10, 15, 20, or nothing at all if they feel that's fair. I'm a bartender and I live off my tips. Sure my 8.95 wage is slightly higher than a US counter part, but you try living off $360/we...

Mr. Perkins said the brand, which sponsors sports such as Major League Baseball and Nascar, plans to sponsor food festivals because 50% of 21- to 27-year-olds identify themselves as “foodies.” I seriously doubt that anyone who even half seriously considers him or herself a foodie would drink more t...

Tried out central Bier Haus the other day and was not impressed. They have some very attractive, young servers running around a very open space with a large TV. I mention it to have something positive to say about the place. Had some ok beers on tap and what appeared to be an ok bottle list, but man...

Was just at the Richmond Rd LC and they had the Omnipollo on the shelves. Scooped up 5 bottles for myself as it looked like they were going fast. Looking forward to trying this little ditty tonight. A little concerned about freshness as it's probably been in the warehouse for a while, but the best b...

Sounds cool. No mention of the styles of beer they will be starting with... anyone heard anything? Great beer scene emerging in this little city.
