Don't go to the Huether or Gold Crown, unless you enjoy shitty service and mediocre-at-best beer. Agreed on the beer, but not on the service. I know you had a bad experience there Jesse, but I go once/week with the family for brunch a pint and I have had some of the quickest service in town. I stil...

Dragon's Breath Pale in Kingston yesterday was really great.


Is that cask or keg Belgian? It has not been in good form the last few times I have been there - I've started just ordering St Ambroise Oatmeal Stout when I go there, as I do really like the atmosphere and food in that pub...

Hi Nick. That might have been me, I saw you at Victory a couple of weeks ago. Unfortunately with The Castle now closed, we are severely lacking. The best in the area is the Golden Kiwi in Cambridge by far. In KW itself, we have some pubs with a few decent taps (The Kickoff is the best I have come ac...

I'm not sure I understand the fascination with people wanting every single beer to be available in every single LCBO, or every area of Ontario. We live a in Province bigger than most countries, yet we insist small locally made craft brews must be delivered to LCBO's from Ottawa to Windsor. Half the ...

Thanks for the info Troy. Ralph will never keep everyone happy with ticket sale dates - especially on this site! :wink: - but it is a wise move to move the date from Thanksgiving Sunday.

With so many sessions and a no ticket needed Sunday, there is going to be plenty of cask beers for everyone.

Sadly this will be the first one I miss - that's the start of deer hunting season. Have fun everyone, I do not want to hear anything about it :) .

Best of luck to Ralph and crew for another successful best beer event in the city.

Church Key did a one off rye and year or two ago and it was quite well done. Agreed though that we need more (any)!

There was some brief chatter about this in the "What are you drinking" thread a few months ago http://www.bartowel.com/board/viewtopic.php?p=48642&highlight=#48642 but never a thread dedicated to it. I'm still working my way through the few cases I picked up from the brewery in early J...

Dutch, I think the fact that so many bartowelers have already made the trip is very encouraging (I know of approx 10 off hand) and also a reason maybe more did not show for this particular event. I don't know about others, but my August weekends were booked back in June. Personally, I do not like dr...

Congrats on a good event and thanks for the feedback guys. I'm looking forward to checking it out! I was, however, quite disappointed with the turn out. I was expecting a lot more people to be there with all the talk I hear about supporting Ontario breweries Hey now, do not equate a low turn out to ...

I bought 30 cans today from St Clair and Keele and they still had over 70 cans on the cold area shelves! If you want a consistent place to get it (for Toronto folks), I'd recommend this LCBO.

I've been buying 8 cans consistently since this was released, mostly from St Clair and Keele on their regular shelves (although it was in the cold section last time) and it has been solid every time. I guess it depends where you get it. My favourite beer of the summer by far.

Guys, is it that big of a deal? Why not just filter the memberlist, when you look at it, by number of posts - then you can see the 500 or so people who have made at least one legitimate post on bartowel and we can all feel better...
