Re: BCBS Black Friday in TO - Nov 24

They are also doing a bottle release as part of an "LCBO Pop-Up Store" on 600 King St. West starting at 9:30am on Fri Nov 24. Not sure what the pricing would be for the draught. I stopped in yesterday but they had already kicked the Halia which was a couple of days ago. They had Matilta an...

Re: A Night with Hill Farmstead & Radical Road

I think I figured it out. They're trying to provoke an overreaction from the authorities to be used as a publicity stunt to raise awareness for their bar and the oppressive alcohol regulations in the province. I hope this is the case! I can't tell you how many times I've had conversations with bar ...

Re: Molson Buys TDD

I wonder how it will affect participation/inclusion in the likes of Cask Days, availability at top tier beer bars and that kind of thing. Presumably the same guys will be there (at least for a little while) - not many cases I can think of where brewers with good personal relationships around have be...

Re: A Night with Hill Farmstead & Radical Road

Have it from a good source that the event is on the up and up. HF might be 'ok' with RR serving their beer, but in order for it to be truly legit the beer would have to go through the LCBO. All beer entering the province and made available at a licensed establishment does. No one can bring back alc...

Re: Amsterdam Barrel House

Yes, maybe I should have been more specific. For those who have been, what did you think? Worth the trip to Leaside?

Re: Cask Days 2017

I had a thought that the Sunday "Family Friendly" change was (at least in part) due to the success of the Brewer's Backyard at the Brick Works. Maybe I'm perhaps thinking too much of myself though :) It's too bad to hear that it wasn't actually very family *friendly*, just all-ages. Anyway...

Re: Big Pint

Bier Markt Esplanade was a travesty in value, service and quality. Truly awful and a rip off. Has it changed since they re-opened with the Goose Island brew pub? The Goose Island side has a distinct design and atmosphere, and even though the two are connected the Goose side is (thankfully) nothing ...

Re: Cask Days 2017

FOBAB in Chicago doesn't release their beer list until you walk in the front door. Last year they had 400 beers. I kind of like the surprise of walking in and exploring, but I understand that people want to target certain beers to try.

Re: are you drinking a lie?

Bump to this thread as it was on my mind and I wanted to post this exact link. Are people bothered by private equity owning brewers the way that they are with large brewery ownership? I'd argue that private equity has a singular focus on making money (and not good beer), which makes them in some way...

Re: 555 Brewing Co. - Picton

Thanks for the update. Footprint won the Best of the Fest at the GTAs on Wednesday and I have to admit I had never heard of them up to that point.
