That's a really annoying experience. And Len, while it's true that some LCBO employees are exemplary (like the woman at the Front/Jarvis store who did the opposite for me and was incredibly helpful and polite getting the Rogue from the back for me), but this kind of stuff definitely happens too. Fo...

All you need as a teenager to buy alcohol from the LCBO is a beard. Or a tie. Ive never been carded while wearing a tie. And I don't look 25. I had the same experience when I was 19 or 20 and wore a tie - I didn't get carded ever. I certainly did not look old for my age. When I was on vacation in A...

I haven't stepped foot inside a TBS in a year maybe. I don't even go to return empties because it will cost more in TTC tokens than I get from the bottles I can carry and it isn't worth my time of a 20+min walk each way carrying empties. I have 5 LCBO's within 1km of my place, so I get majority of m...

Even markets in this country with arguably better setups (Quebec, Alberta, B.C.) all have certain trade offs for greater beer access (most specifically price). I don't think this is quite correct. The prices in Alberta are higher and the selection is better, so I agree on the facts. However, the fo...

I went on Sunday and I rated them 4>3>2>1. Of the other ones that I tried, I think the Black Oak Rye IPA was my favourite.

I find Unearthly to be too much on the sweet side for me. 2XIPA is more balanced with hops.

I've been to tastings and bars with Sammy. He's always been great to me and I've tried many beers I wouldn't have otherwise. I get that people have issues with him, but it isn't universal.

I've never even heard of this. Did I read this wrong, or have I broken a federal law when I bought from BC and AB home to ON with me? Not to mention the East Coast and Quebec. Yes, you broke the law. It is legal from the US to Canada if you declare at the border, but illegal from one province to th...

I'm heading to Detroit next Thursday. Plan is Slow's for lunch once I cross the border, head to Merchant's, then going to a Founders beer dinner at Shark Club in Howell (both CBS and KBS on tap!). Is there anywhere else on that general route I should hit?

Thinking about the beer store I am surprised that the two major players that own it, are able to place nice with each other long enough to keep the beer store running as well as it does. I mean how do they agree on the prices of Canadian vs. the prices of Blue, and how do they decide who gets the p...
