Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

I don't get why talking about price points is a touchy subject. I also have never understood this. But it seems pretty consistent. When people start talking about price/value, some get a bit touchy. Why? The beer marketplace is interesting, especially these days with so many options. Totally worth ...

Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

I dunno, Canuck is $2.90/can and just as good as Jutsu, most of the IPAs I see in the $4-5 range for a 473 ml can are DIPAs. Lagers take more time to brew no doubt, but typically use less raw materials than heavily hopped, higher ABV IPAs so I imagine it balances out somewhat. Bellwoods is straight...

Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

I get my share bit of Bellwoods stuff. My take on their prices is that while their more limited stuff has gone up a fair bit, I think they have actually done pretty well with a lot of the rest. I say this because given how much craft beer prices overall have risen semi-recently, holding the line can...

Re: New Brunswick

Trailway is indeed pretty solid. The do all, or mainly, IPA type stuff. Apparently they now have a bowling alley as part of their brewery in Fredericton. If you (or anyone else looking at this) do get by Fredericton, they have a ton of breweries now, a few are pretty decent. Trailway would be a good...

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

Well, I thought it might never arrive, but the Dupont Moinette Blonde is finally listed: https://www.lcbo.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/en/lcbo/moinette-blonde-12334#.XesI0ZNKiM8 Only in few places so far, but I only saw it appear on Wednesday (in Peterborough only). In classic LCBO style, you can't...

Re: Sexism in beer labels in Ontario

Keep 6 bringing in La Orange De Dunham is going revive this thread... Had to look that one up. :o Can't see that making to the LCBO shelves. Ha ha ha. I did too, and that's hilarious. Thank you Keep6. OK, all the offended, what say you? Empowering break from stereotype (woman smoking and drinking b...

Re: Sexism in beer labels in Ontario

Unfortunately NB generally seems to be struggling a bit these days. Perhaps all those who wanted the scantily clad women removed from the labels will support them now, and that will lead to a large upswing in sales. I mean, there was a guy on a beer board wondering if the beer being worse but the la...

Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

I realize I am a bit late to the party, and it is not exactly the quintessential summer beer (though ok on a stormy, overcast day like today) but I couldn't agree more - this beer [Komes] is absolutely excellent and a steal at $3.65 for 500 ml. It could be listed for double that and I doubt you wou...

Re: LCBO Summer 2018 Craft Beer Release

Is anyone seeing that Saison Dupont on the shelves yet? I had a bottle of Dupont Avec Les Bons Voeux a few weeks ago for the first time and it nearly blew my mind! No, I doubt it's out yet. I'm sure there's still spring release stuff that isn't out yet, and if I recall correctly last year, Saison D...

Re: LCBO Summer 2018 Craft Beer Release

Tank 7!!!! I love that beer and will stock up.

I'm also a huge fan of Le Castor, although I haven't had that particular one (Brett Saison).

Re: Bellwoods Brewery

Heh, thanks all. I'm almost glad it's actually this weekend, I could really stand to sit out a release or two at this point.

Re:

I picked up the W eihenstephaner VITUS (great beer!) and the Boulevard Smokestack Series: Funky Pumpkin which I expect to be an interesting mashup of spicy and sour and bretty. It's only moderately well-received so my expectations are not exceedingly high despite the over-$15 price (it won't be Inf...

Re: Bellwoods Brewery

This weekend. I'd heard the following weekend, but perhaps I misunderstood. The person I talked to did confirm a weekend release. Hoping it's the 25th as I'll be downtown that day, and wouldn't mind grabbing a couple bottles. I tried both of the picket fence 'saisons' the other day. The flavour pro...
