Topic: Perfect Pint Law for Ontario?

Why not become and agent for a brewery that makes one of these 1000 AIPA's and get it listed at the LCBO; you'll be happy then. That's a lot of work for a single product compared to someone living in Buffalo (or just about any US city) that just has to go out to the store and has a wide selection.

The general list selection is abysmal compared to most other Canadian provinces and hoppy beers of any sort continue to elude the shelves of the LCBO. In fact, a couple of the best beers available (DFH 60 Minute & Victory Prima Pils) just got de-listed. That leaves us with Southern Tier IPA and...

I shouldn't have to go harass the people that what the LCBO when I want a bottle or two of a product that for some reason won't make its way out of Ottawa region or east of Burlington. I shouldn't have to be made to buy a case of it either, or travel to Ajax, Pickering, Port Hope or Queens Quay to ...

Too bad. Too short a stay in our region.


It was only a seasonal, so it wasn't supposed to last long.

It's the same as every Province in Canada. You apply, you either get accepted or declined. I deal with the AGLC & BCLDB at the moment, and the BCLDB make the LCBO look like absolute angels. Granted that Alberta is different being a private market, but the Government still have their fingers in ...

It is the best beer I've ever had and I can't wait until I'm in Oregeon/California starting Thursday so I can drink as much of this as possible!

I agree the laws are stupid. Yes, it is possible to get beers into the LCBO, but it isn't easy or quick. There is no real reason I see for a law to prohibit you from purchasing what you want there, other than the Control Board needing to have their control. If they are allowed to sell you the beer t...

I'm going to Montreal for a quick trip... I need a place to drink tonight and tomorrow afternoon. I'm thinking Dieu Du Ciel tonight and Saint Bock tomorrow. Should I do something different than this? I would do Vice et Versa over Saint Bock. Thanks for the suggestion, may try that out. It gets good...

I enjoy the Mill Street Barleywine. I don't think I $12/500mL enjoy it though. Wish it came in normal bottles so the price could be reasonable. lets pretend that those bottle cost mill st $2 each (they dont) would you pay $10 for a 341ml twist of bottle? Probably not actually. I bought a ton of the...

I've had Hop-It on tap at Beerbistro a few times. I think it is usually there since they don't seem to change their taps too often.

I've also have had it at Smokeless Joe's and Volo, though neither has it all the time.

Wait, you actually still need half the beer in bottle to return a product? So I pour a beer into a glass, then find it infected, am I supposed to pour it back in, try to re-seal, then store it somewhere until I return it? Ya, I'm never going to do that... though it sound like a good way to try the ...
