Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

Laser Show by Left Field Brewery IPA - Imperial / Double New England / $4.50 (355 mL can) wonder what the date is on this: you sure the date isn't on the label? my cans have date stamp between the purple strip and the left field logo near the top of the label (03JAN2019) (The date code is one of th...

Re: What're you drinking right now?

Beau's ... Despite scoffing at this a couple times on the shelf, I got one as a gift and it's actually pretty good. :lol: It seems Beau's packaging is rather eye catching and their pricing does a good job enticing non-beer drinkers to gift below average beer to people who wouldn't spend their money...

Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & CBS

Possibly a terrible bar beer, but much better as a home sipper enjoyed quietly over 2-6 hours (not exaggerating this time frame in the least.) This is the pace I would enjoy über-rich things like ice wines, Sauternes, sweet Pedro Ximinez sherry and the like. A slippers and housecoat brew, if you wi...

Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

Get 2 bottles and it’s equal to less than $10 for a 660ml bottle of 12% imp stout, compared to $12 for 500ml of Kentucky bastard. Both equally rated on ratebeer. But this way it’s easier to drink half and still have the other half sealed. Edit: can’t wait to try the lickinghole heir apparent, almos...

Re: One of Canada’s biggest brewing equipment companies in receivership

This is bull#$t. Isn't anybody insured against such an up-front expense? Seems like a ludicrous risk, so where exactly did the money go, and who at the manufacturing co. saw this coming and said nothing? I don't know much about the brewery equipment business but I'd have a hard time putting up $800...

Re: Coming Soon to the LCBO

Another listed, but with no stock yet, that I don't think was on any seasonal release list: Heir Apparant Mexican Spiced Imperial Stout that price can't be right, can it? under 4 bucks for an 11.5% imperial stout? :o puts most of the local beer prices to shame.... BUT given the discrepancy between ...

Re: Uncorked-Wine and Spirits Appreciation

Looking to fill in the Xmas list with a bourbon or two. Something in the $50++ range. Currently enjoy Blantons, Weller and Eagle Rare. Suggestions? Larceny ($50) is a "wheated" bourbon along the lines of Weller Pikesville (pricier at $90) is a rye-heavy bourbon along the lines of Blanton'...
