Re: Coming Soon to the LCBO

Sierra Nevada Trip in the Woods barrel aged Maple Scotch Ale 750ml 9.8%abv $19.45 Nineteen bucks, though :o ... think I'll pass on this one Oh it's worth every cent. If it were in 3 x 250 ml bottles would each be worth $6-7, definitely. The aromas and the substantial body of this beer make it worth...

Re: LCBO Summer 2018 Craft Beer Release

Does anyone know when the Saison Dupont will hit the shelves? I have been travelling for a while and hope that I have not already missed it. Don't know when it will be on the shelf, but you haven't missed it yet. Still waiting.... Did I miss it? Maybe it will show up in September ... just in time f...

Re: Online Brewery sales

I've ordered from: Dominion City, Sawdust City, and Blood Brothers. All did a good job. I only have two issues ordering direct from breweries: 1. Delivery costs add ~buck-a-beer :wink: :wink: (or more if you don't get a full case) ... to already premium priced (i.e. expensive craft) beer. 2. Stale b...

Re: Witchstock 2018

If you pay $120 to go to this event and you feel you got your money's worth, then you got your money's worth. I can't see myself feeling that way though. Most I can drink in 3 hours is 6 pints - maybe. That's $20 a pint. Yes,l there's great/rare beer but I can pop over to Lewiston and get 15-20 can...

Re: Expiry Dates

I can't think of any other Ontario crafts without some form of date code. LOL Plenty of Ontario crafts WITHOUT any form of date codes... The most loved of them all - Bellwoods - doesn't use date codes!!!! Others I've had of late without dates: 5 Paddles, Little Beasts Brewing, Town Brewery, Blood B...

Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

If that is how you judge your drinking habits, you live a sad life. Also I am an accountant. You are the reason I hate the stereotype that is associated with our profession. Just to make sure you're right about me I googled the definition of accountant. Here's what I found: "drives 80 Km on a ...

Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

I rarely, if ever, look at beer reviews beyond comments that people make on this website, and I certainly don't use Untapped. Having said that, I don't read too much in to this. The differences in these overall averages are not huge, and I think there are a lot of things that could affect and skew ...

Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

IMO Komes, a hefty, sumptuous 9% Baltic Porter, is really great value at $3.65 for 500ml currently. Interesting you bring this up. Being an anal accountant I keep track of my "inventory" in a spreadsheet. One of the data points is a calculation of cost/ml of alcohol (i.e. a $5 10% beer is...
