Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

Deschutes Fresh Squeezed IPA - Tallboy cans. Was excited till I checked the stamp. Looks May brewing, so 4-5 months old? Last sixer I bought here was 3 months "fresh," I didn't mind it. Love American breweries. Every time I'm at the LCBO I eye this beer and the Jai Alai from Cigar City, b...

Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

I've had Jai Alai at about 2 months old and it was still tasty. But I would guess this will arrive super stale. Too bad. Maduro Brown is coming this fall, not really exciting but probably ages better. Hopefully Cigar City sends something dark and robust as part of the winter seasonal release. Canne...

Re: Ontario Craft Beer, Imports and Pumpkin Beers at the LCBO (Fall 2019)

I don't think so -- it has to be brewed on-site for them to sell it directly out of their facility. So how do we explain taprooms selling beer from other breweries. recent example: Rouge River had a beer from Barncat current example: https://www.rougeriverbrewingcompany.com/bottleshop-tap-list scro...

Re: Ontario Craft Beer, Imports and Pumpkin Beers at the LCBO (Fall 2019)

La Trappe Quad, i believe, is brewed at Brunswick in Ontario. and it's Netherlands, not Belgian. Yes, correct, saw it in the fridge on my last visit to Brunswick. Though it may still benefit the monks and their causes (in a small way), i guess that means the Ontario version is NOT a trappist beer ...

Re: Bellwoods Brewery

I was wondering if anyone has had infection issues with beers other than the 2018 BOYD? I sent a Black Roses to someone recently as a desired extra in a trade and he let me know it had gone quite sour. Has anyone had issues with 2017 BOYD, 2017 or 18 Skeleton Keys or recent 3 Minutes to Midnight? C...

Re: Uncorked-Wine and Spirits Appreciation

This evening I really enjoyed a dram of Aberlour A'Bunadh at my friends place. Is the $100 price on point or off? Aberlour a'bunadh is top 5 best bang for your buck single malts at LCBO so much so, that its been virtually the same price for nearly 10 years ($95 in 2010 to $100 today), while its see...

Re: Uncorked-Wine and Spirits Appreciation

Thank you sir, some interesting things I should check out, however anything you can think of at a “I won’t get in shit from my wife ” price point? You're into (expensive) craft beer and you're worried about shit from the wife over a bottle of Scotch? :lol: Your problem is liking heavily peated whis...

Re: Uncorked-Wine and Spirits Appreciation

Really like: Lagavulin 16 ... still a classic but the current $135 price tag is getting into "pass" territory. Consider the 8 year at $85. Its not as "smooth" as the 16 but packs a peat punch Ardbeg 10 Compared to most markets, the $100 is still expensive but its been the same pr...
