*Bump*

I'm heading out to Vancouver this weekend. Any suggestions? Alibi Room look interesting, but it has short hours. I think it must be more of a restaurant than a pub.

The free cheese table during happy hour can help alleviate the pain of steep beer prices :D Sunday through Thursday, I think.

Mount Royal and Wilfred Laurier get their own beers for their centennials:

If you have the time, drive up to Hill's brewery to pick up a couple growlers which is on his family farm about an hour from Waterbury. Pretty crazy spot. Thanks for this. It sounded intriguing, so I made a little sidetrip to Hill Farmstead as I was in the area. Picked up a few tasty treats and cha...

Thanks for this info, AofK. I made the trip to Potsdam today and went to Big M (Diversify your beerfolio!) and CJ's. CJ's is definitely the store with the bigger selection, but Big M has better prices on some products and it also has a few unique items not found at Big M. Shopped at both stores and ...

I went to Brickskeller twice during my visit. The first time I sat downstairs and wondered what all the fuss was about. Long bottle list, but dismal ambience. Decided to give it another try a few nights later and went upstairs. Glad I did as there were lots of interesting things on tap that I missed...

The province of Quebec seems to heavily promote its own products. This desire to promote QC products makes me wonder if there isn't some provincial funding lying around somewhere for someone interested in, say, opeing a QC themed gastropub. This site might be a start: http://www.alimentsduquebec.com...

I hit BdM, V&V and Cheval Blanc on Halloween. I have to say, BdM isn't right in the middle of downtown, but it's a good place to go for a beer and a meal. The food is quite nicely done there. My wife had the steak frites and I had grilled sausages with mashed potatoes. All very good and much bet...

Very useful, Jay. Thanks very much. And Gilles at Broue Ha Ha is a great example of this sort of out reach, too, isn't he. 3 cheers for Gilles. I look forward to my Broue Ha Ha newsletter. Crossing the US border is a bit more involved than heading over to Gatineau, so a newsletter about what's new ...
