Obviously they should have used bcc to send this email out, but they didn't. Many people make that mistake. I would suggest sending an email back to the sender to remind them of the 'proper' way to do this.

I already ordered a case of the IPA for myself, but I'd like to go in on 1/4 or 1/3 of a case of the barleywine if anyone else is interested.

any good pubs in downtown Toronto show NCAA football?

We'll be in downtown Toronto this weekend and I'm hoping to be able to watch the SEC championship game (Florida vs Alabama) in a pub with good beer (and at least okay food since my wife and daughter will be there to watch at least part of the game). It's a 4pm start on Saturday. Any suggestions? Doe...

My one worry is the cost of beer. I wonder how quickly people will rethink their requests for craft beer if they're paying $8 a cup. As I understand it Mill Street products will be the only beer available at the festival. That tells me that the price for at least some of the beers will be similar t...

I tried this today at a pub in Russell (near Ottawa). The pub seems to have a lot of Moosehead ads on the walls, so that explains why they have Hop City (i.e. if you don't know, Hop City is owned by Moosehead). Anyway, I had two of pints of the Barking Squirrel with lunch, and all I can say is they ...

It's been mentioned before in other threads on Bessettes but it's worth remembering that the selection can vary widely depending on when you go. I think the story is they get most of their beer delivered near the beginning of the month. If you show up later in the month, then the selection will not ...

I went with Dogfish Head 60 minute, Southern Tier IPA and Lagunitas Maximus (and walked home as planned). Hope everyone had fun watching the game.

While I agree with you for the most part, I think the main issue here is not having any beer at all. I have no problem calling ahead of time to see if they have the beer I want. I would have issue if they had no beer at all.The original complaint was that the brewery had no beer to sell, not once, ...

You shouldn't have to call ahead to make sure they have beer....they are a brewery, they are open for business, they should have beer. Maybe it's just me but I don't see the problem with calling ahead to see if they have the beer you want. We're not talking about a big brewery here. I'm sure they a...

It would seem simple to me to just call the Publican House if you are worried about what they will have available. A previous post said the phone number was (705) 874-5743. While it would be great if they always had all their beers available at the brewery, I don't think that is always realistic for...

Anyone checked out the Publican House lately? Anything new? I'll be in Peterborough for a few days over the holidays. I'll be dropping by sometime to pick up a growler or two of the Square Nail.

This has been my experience the last few times at this place -- I'd be interested in how the Ottawa guys find it. Cask at the Loon has been bad for years. I've long given up trying it there anymore. It's just not worth the hassle. Instead we just stick with Tankhouse or St. Amboise Pale. I can't re...

I also dropped by the brewery on Saturday to pick up a growler of the pale ale. I didn't get to try it until we got home late last night. My initial impression was that it was very good (I leave real beer reviews to others) and certainly a very welcome addition to the Peterborough beer scene. I didn...
