Don't take this the wrong way Gary, but La Terrible has absolutely nothing in common with any stout on this planet. As for watering down beer you don't want to know what I think about that. :( Couldn't help myself...

This 72 is the magic number LCBO uses to tell you to back off. I've received the same response to a lot of quotes I asked for from different US breweries.

Greetings from Brugge

Having a great time so far. Gorgeous bistros and restaurants. After trying different beers, I, like many others realised; what's the point, and for the last 3 days I've only had Westvleteren 12. You can have it for 3.50Euro at the restaurant or for 3.95Euro at the Beer Tempel ... :lol: By the way, t...

If you are in Ottawa, you can duck over to La Trappe a Fromage in Gatineau to pick this up This is a great little store in Gatineau. If you are around drop by. Their cheese selection is unbelivable (they even carry Chimay). As for beer they have all the Unibroue products and lots of other Quebec mi...

I've had it in Ottawa on tap at Pub Italia. Thin/flat flavour and unimpressive. I'd rather have a bottle of Hacker or Schneider Weisse anytime.

Also you can stop by Monte Carlo Casino brewpub. I've been there a few years ago and enjoyed some of their ales.

I'm sorry, next time I'll be more explicit in order too avoid awkward situations. I cannot help myself when it comes to Trois Pistoles which I personally hold in high regards. In my opinion, and there was a time when we debated this on Bartowel, this brew is on the same level with Chimay Blue. Some ...

La Terrible in beer stores?

I was browsing their site and I came across Terrible in 750ml for 7.95. Has anyone seen this one in stores yet?
If this is real, kudos to Mr. Sleeman.

Well, as far as I know Creemore Springs is not pasteurized and that doesn't stop LCBO to have it all over the place. I once saw it on the floor at Weston/401 location and asked the staff how come it's not in the fridge and I got "what do you care" kind of answer.

Stone won't ship :cry: :cry: :cry: . Victory won't ship. Sierra Nevada received several different brews. Anchor received Bigfoot. There is got be something we can do about Stone though. Maybe if we rally together and try to commit for a larger order??? What I've heard is that they can hardly cope wi...

I've had it several times before. This one's not for hopheads, it's a malt driven brew, lots of raisin, caramel, spice combine in the flavour. I'd rather look at it as a desert beer. If you are after hops, go for Sierra Nevada Bigfoot or Victory Old Horizontal which I also happen to love.

I also received my order of Anchor Old Foghorn at $74CAD per case wich works out to a resonable price of about $3 per 330ml bottle of barley wine. Private ordering seems to work as long as the suppliers are willing to bother for a few cases.

Liberty Ale in LCBO stores

It looks like less and less stores carry it. I used to be able to find in a few stores north of the city but not anymore. I asked a few LCBO managers why they don't bring it in and the answer was the usual: it doesn't sell. Of course it won't sell like Kozel or some other popular pilsners but, is th...
