Re: Founders Canadian Breakfast

Friend of mine picked some up in Kitchener today. My guess is that head office didn't tell any store they were meant to hold it back, and so it got delivered and went on the shelves.

Re: Coming Soon to the LCBO

I have no information on which to suggest anything, but you have to agree that it is a little curious that a new beer comes out from a small Ontario brewery and all the ratings are from Europe, don't you? If FM regularly exports to Greece in particular or Europe in general then that would explain i...

Re: LCBO Online Ordering Launches

I had a quick look this morning and am actually pretty pleased with the option. Whilst I'm not likely to get a case of the "online-only" stuff, I'm really happy to see that you can order individual cans/bottles of everything else. For those of us outside the cities, that's a hell of a lot ...

As did I. I suspect it might come back in a can - if it does, I'll try one again.

Re: LCBO Summer Craft Beer Release 2016

Keep6 already has online shopping, for those of you in rural areas. It's not the full LCBO portfolio, but if you want decent beer they probably have a better selection than your local Beer Store/LCBO/old truck body hybrid behind the local gas station. They do, and that's great. But, for me at least...

How does this compare to Limp Puppet? Is it a replacement for it?

Re: Nickel Brook Brewing

I'm pretty sure I read somewhere that immodest was going to be 5$ for a tAllboy at lcbo. Seems high to me, but just throwing it out to those who have had it( I havnt). Would it be worth $5? Absolutely. Comparing that to their Winey Bastard at $14.95 for 750ml, $5 for 473ml of (in my opinion) a far ...

Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

Both products are now showing stock in Toronto-area Beer Stores. No description of what the Mixer Pack includes on the TBS website, which is unfortunate given that GI sells many different mix packs. I'm also wondering whether the Endless IPA is now a Canada-only release, as there's no mention of it...

Re: worst Ontario beer of 2015?

i know he posts here, but honest feedback's better than lying oh god oh god... phew. Anyway! For me it was a little beer called "The Wall" by Block 3. I've had some good beers from Block 3 (King Street Saison, for example) but The Wall should not have been released. "If Cheetos made ...

Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

Yah, it's interesting how the format can affect the total amount purchased. With big bottles, I almost always just purchase one, but with cans, I purchase more. It only takes two cans to be more volume than one large bottle. I wonder what all comes into play with the breweries decisions. Two things...

Re: Shawn and Ed Brewing

as an aside, i re-visited the Steam Whistle unfiltered lager at the Only this past weekend. starts nice, finishes with corn. blech. Has anyone brewed a Jack's Abbey IPL in Ontario? Or even a good hoppy pilsner (like Firestone's Pivo or Victory Prima)? .[/quote] The Innocente Pils-sinner is pretty g...

Re: Shawn and Ed Brewing

And if I may prolong the tangent started earlier - I, too, miss the GRB of days past. Tailgate is the epitome of mediocre Ontario pale lagers, and it's expensive to boot. They should have just re-branded the Galt Knife or Hannenberg recipes, because those were both better beers. Spent a day at GRB ...

If Molson made this beer in 1908, why are they only serving it now? :wink:


It was waiting for LCBO Lab approval. ;)
