Re: LCBO Autumn 2018 Release

I read elsewhere that Deschutes Black Butte Porter and Uerige Alt will be included as part of the release. It's still not up on helloLCBO, so can't confirm. Besides those two beers, the Rosetta, and Ayinger Oktoberfest, I'm not particularly excited by this release. I feel like the LCBO is regressin...

Haha, whoops! I'm planning a trip to Grand Rapids soon, it must've been fresh on my mind.

Re: Grand River Brewing

I do love a well executed example of simpler styles, but I imagine it's a harder sell in today's beer market. It's gotta be even harder in the age of social media where everyone's looking for special or gimmicky beers with Instagrammable appeal. Perhaps based on my experience with their wine I never...

Re: Grand River Brewing

A quick scan of their portfolio shows a lineup consisting of an English IPA and two lagers. Yup, cutting edge. I'm not calling them cutting edge (I found that humorous too), but I think you are selling them short. They have five listings in TBS. True North Copper Alt Bier True North Cream Ale True ...

Re: Doug Ford

I didn’t drink buck-a-beer back then and I’m unlikely to start now but I don’t feel the need to express my feelings about an election result by denying buck-a-beer to someone else. We are the exceptions here. Yes, it is a stereotype but beer largely remains the working man’s drink. Let him save a f...

Re: Doug Ford

While I'm sure every craft brewery would love less regulation, the whole concept of 'buck a beer' is antithetical to craft beer, and possibly even a threat to the growth of craft. In this case, actual $1 beers may never surface again in Ontario, but Ford is propping up the notion of cheap suds, whe...

Re: Sexism in beer labels in Ontario

Lol at fucking terms like edgelord and neckbearding. Lol 2018. Lol at terms like leftist SJWs, snowflakes, safe spaces, lazy and flawed arguments about millenials not wanting to work or having jobs/money. Lol at a brewery perhaps recognizing that beer advertising has historically been sexist and no...

Re: Downtown Toronto LCBO’s

Yeah, Coxwell is my local. I wonder sometimes if they're right to get as much beer in as they do. KBS, for example, has been sitting on the shelves there for ages. I think in the case of KBS there was a flurry of people who wanted to try it the first time, being new and novel for Ontario. However m...

Re: Downtown Toronto LCBO’s

Didn't the Beach get a nice LCBO just a couple of years ago? I haven't been in, but it looks.... Shiny. It is pretty sleek, although I find it a bit more wine/spirit centric. Best selection around there is the Queen/Coxwell LCBO, although they don't have a walk-in cooler so a lot of the stuff is ou...

Re: Sexism in beer labels in Ontario

I'm disappointed in Nickel Brook. I hope Naughty Neighbour doesn't get a makeover next. She's pretty as she is. They’ve stated it will be redesigned. Fucking LOL! I'd love to see the statement. Anyone who was actually offended by those cans are lol. Insane. So disappointed in Nickel Brook. I will f...

Re: LCBO Online Exclusives

So disappointed...I was online at 8:00, but didn't check that fervently. Agreed on the lottery system and introduction of captchas. Seems strange for something like beer, but there was a time when they had special beers through Vintages, so why not? Any recommendations for great saisons within reac...

Re: Stolen Orval and Glass image

A 2014 Orval. There are imitators but none equal to this Trappist. The gorgeous big rocky head, a gradually mellowing bitterness, layered subtle flavors of fruit and spice. When the heck are we getting more of this fine elixir, pretty please? Hopefully soon. I'm just going to suck it up and buy 1 -...

I keep getting an error when I try to add anything to my cart, along with intermittent crashes of the entire website. Oh well, at the end of the day at least I'll save some money.

Re: What're you drinking right now?

Stopped by Muddy York the other weekend and sampled a few beers, gotta say I've really been enjoying them as of late. Infinite Zest Belgian Wit IPA with Lime Zest: Gotta say I didn't think I'd like this since I a) more often than not don't enjoy "Belgian IPAs" and b) don't like lime in bee...
