Yeah I wish Beau's would amp up their seasonals other than local watering holes and at the brewery. They really have some good stuff. All in due time I suppose, they are growing pretty fast.

Nice, looks like I'll be stimulating the Gatineau economy this weekend! I wonder how much of their business (this place, Trappe, Jovi) depends Ottawans... Damn even include Costco. Ottawans roll in to grab the 55 can Coors/Dry/Export cases. A lot of people I know buy their beer in Quebec, good beer...

This is a great idea. I have to believe a beer like this would survive. I know I would purchase it. You look at Quebec and they have 3 maybe 4 beers along this line (maybe not that high on IBU's in some cases) but Corne du Diable comes to mind. Simple Malt's Cascade IPA. Both are exceptional beers a...

Picked up two bottles from the brewery yesterday. Not readily available but if you "ask nicely" you might be able to get some.

I love visiting Beau's Brewery.

This is great news. I adore Alpha King and would love something similar coming out of Ontario. I just need to get my hands on it in Ottawa.

Congrats on the great hop beers! Keep up the great work.

But the LCBO because it's a monopoly, has no competition so they can continue to charge whatever the hell they want. I think LCBO has some competition in the way of bars and restaurants. I mean yes it is more expensive to drink at a bar but it is another way to drink. Um, where do bars and restaura...

The problem here is more LCBO rather than the HST. The HST over three years the competition will bring the price down and savings will be eventually passed on to consumers. But the LCBO because it's a monopoly, has no competition so they can continue to charge whatever the hell they want. And in thi...

Just a heads up that the two main bottle shops in Ottawa/Gatineau are about to get better. Marche Jovi/Marche Omni, I was in there on Wednesday and speaking to the owner. He is adding an extra shelf the entire length of the existing shelving. Also adding shelving in between coolers where he had case...

For anyone looking to do some purchases. Might I suggest Depanneur Peluso (Bonisoir). 2500 Rachael E. It's around the corner from my brother-in-laws and I've been there many times. They built an addition in the back for the sole purpose of craft beer. If they don't carry every beer available in Queb...
