GTA Brewers Selling Kegs to Home Consumers?

I've been thinking about getting a keg/renting a pump for an upcoming party I'm hosting, but can't seem to get much information as to what brewers I might be able to get this keg from. I know Steam Whistle sells kegs and rents pumps but I'd like to get something a little more adventurous than that. ...

Appreciate the responses. Having returned I can echo a lot of what's above. The IGA in St-Jovite had a pretty good selection. I picked up a couple 6 packs of the Saint Arnould beers (didn't make it to the brewery even though it's right around the corner from the IGA) and a few really nice beers from...

For those in on the Garrison order, are you concerned about having your email sent out to all of the other 57 recipients by the LCBO? I certainly could have done without it. Re: their stated policy: I'm not sure my e-mail address would constitute "personal information" for the purposes of...

Mont Tremblant, QC and surrounding area

I'm heading to Mt. Tremblant in a few weeks and while the focus of the trip is skiing, I won't miss a chance to try/buy whatever beer I can't normally get in Ontario. Having been a few years ago I do recall that there's a brewpub in the Intrawest 'village' (La Diable) but otherwise most of the other...

Thanks for the thoughts. I got up to the Valley yesterday for lunch at the Port (and got to try a few of their beers I hadn’t tried my other time there). Also did get to the Domaine de Grand Pré winery. I noticed Paddy’s Pub on the drive through Wolfville so I’m going to try to get there in the next...

Nova Scotia Beyond Halifax

I'm in NS for 2+ weeks and will be traveling all around. Naturally hoping to get in some decent beers along the way. I've read plenty about Halifax (including the threads here), but I was curious if anyone knew about decent spots beyond there. Last year I got to The Port in Port Williams (near Wolfv...

I doubt the Beer Store could do anything but whine, and the LCBO could re-brand these locations.... That the LCBO might not want to set up these sort of stores has been surveyed above in this thread, but I wonder if BRI wouldn't at least threaten to take action against this. The General Regulation ...

I've always thought the Rose and Crown was terrible as a pub or beer destination and I don't think it's any better as a blues spot. Mediocre selection, quality issues, garbage food. The place at least was usually well-attended so it wasn't dead, but I live in the area and have steered clear of the p...

Definitely a solid beer. And I say that after trying it today at the Toronto Indy ! I was shocked that after thinking that Bud was the only option at the event to see that not only was there a second beer available, but this was it. And here I'd been hoping it would be Bud Light Lime :wink: It certa...

Looks like the hours have been updated on their website: http://www.ceilicottage.com/hours.htm . Cold comfort now I suppose. I've heard that they may still be struggling with getting staffed up. Growing pains probably shouldn't be surprising at this point, but with that patio you'd hope they'll star...

I believe that last night was the first night it was open but there was some fundraiser being held for the dance school behind the place. I've heard that there will be 11 taps (apparently only a few were pouring last night) with a handful of Diageo ones, Church Key Lager, Hop Addict, O'Hara's Stout,...

I was in after work this week and was impressed. Amazed at how big the place was for sure. The beers were decent, with the brown being the best to my mind. I've walked by a few times since and they seem to be doing a bang-up business. Seems to me the place may have the potential to do a real service...

As mentioned on the thread about the Queen and Beaver, they have a cask (the Wellington Arkell) although when I was in on Monday it was still settling. As well, I heard that the Ceili Cottage (which I'd heard was supposed to open this weekend but I don't believe did) will offer cask ale as one of th...

Got in for a quick drink at the Queen and Beaver after work this week. It's an interesting place with a nice lounge area on the second floor and a decent-sized patio overlooking the street on the same floor which was quite nice. Thought the room on the main floor was a little odd, but maybe when the...
