correct, but notice that the breweries doing this have to include some food (same for bars/restaurants)*
i.e. a bag of chips with the beer from another brewery and you're good to go

Re: Coronavirus

The LCBO do deliver though, they just do it through Canada Post. They rolled out Foodora for their stuff too, but i think got caught off guard when Foodora left Canada. good point BUT as I mentioned, Canada Post is not actually delivering alcohol, they are taking the box directly to post office (in...

Re: Coronavirus

This is an organization first / customers last mindset. Their main concern is protecting staff, not society. I agree with your first point but protecting staff is not a concern for their safety as much as a concern not to piss off the union. The union is doing their job, and this situation is a per...

Re: Coronavirus

I hate to be Mr. Contradiction-Face, but the LCBO is not the largest buyer and retailer of beverage alcohol in the world . They are one of the largest, though...they even addressed this in their FAQ back in the day. (Some of the larger European supermarket chains, like Tesco, take that crown.) LCBO...

That's the key!
once burned, twice shy.
breweries ship out stale product at their own peril - i.e. risk never selling anything to that person ever again

Re: Rorschach Brewing

As for freshness, your suggestion of shipping stale beer is entirely conjecture. I, personally, would guess the opposite. I can't see any craft brewery, who most I know are passionate about what they do, would dare give a paying customer stale beer. Not conjecture, real experience. I'm not suggesti...

Re: Rorschach Brewing

I haven’t heard anyone talk about this place much so I’m assuming they aren’t popular I think the vast majority of breweries in Ontario never got talked about before the pandemic primarily for two reasons: 1. most of them operate mainly for locals - not many offered shipping in the past 2. their be...

Re: Who's selling 355ml cans?

I disagree
BUT
people like me probably buy a lot less beer than those that want tall boys and bombers
so
have no fear, your "cuck cans" won't take over the industry, and you'll be able to continue drinking 10% alc bombs by the half liter

Re: brewed.today

FYI if the brewery is using Canada Post, the delivery may not come to your door due to CP's covid-19 policy. drivers are leaving a notice on your door (or community mailbox) to go pick up the package at your local "post office" (ie Shoppers Drug Mart, in my case) I placed 3 orders a few da...
