Re: LCBO Summer 2018 Craft Beer Release

Is anyone seeing that Saison Dupont on the shelves yet? I had a bottle of Dupont Avec Les Bons Voeux a few weeks ago for the first time and it nearly blew my mind! Yeah, Avec les Bons Vouex over the Christmas / holiday season (for which it is brewed) is a real treat that I look forward to if I can ...

Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

IMO Komes, a hefty, sumptuous 9% Baltic Porter, is really great value at $3.65 for 500ml currently. Agreed, and it's also great to see something from Poland that is not a pale lager. There is a real lack of variety in the central/eastern European selection in this province. More baltic porters and ...

Re: Good pubs in Stratford

Suggest call ahead to ensure HHOE open (depending what day you're going). Otherwise, very friendly and (agreeing with everyone else on here, I'm sure) well worth a visit. If you like the ponies, or at least the buggies, there is a sweet little racetrack at Clinton, a further ten minutes from Seafort...

Re: Godspeed Brewery

Sorry, but I really can't agree with any of that. I don't go often, but by chance I was also there recently. I find the Japanese minimalist aesthetic quite calming and pleasing, especially on a hot afternoon with the big doors fully open. It's not a place you go if you're hankering for an IPA, to be...

Re: General LCBO Debate & Discussion Thread

Cite the evidence that "privatize the LCBO" was part of the new government's platform. I'm sure you will find it was not. Perhaps I would, if that had been a thing that I had actually said and not merely a strawman of your own construction. I obviously misinterpreted "dismantling pro...

Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

Does anyone know when the hell the Collective Arts Liquid Arts Fest IPA is finally hitting shelves? Apparently there was a delay, then CA said on social media it would be out this week. It's still not in the system though. Need this beer! Bought one from the brew shop when I was back home. It's so ...

Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

I don't mind paying a bit more to support local brewers I like. For example, Spaten Munich is, what .60 less per can than Side Launch Mountain at my local Loblaws? They are pretty similar beers (not to mention, Spaten comes in a slightly bigger can). But still, I often buy the Mountain, especially i...

Re: Beer in Grocery Stores

Anyone notice price differences between the grocery stores and LCBO/TBS? The other day I bought some Side Launch Pale Ale and DAB (Dortmunder) - both 500ml - at Sobey's. I think I glanced at the prices below the cans before picking them up but didn't notice any price difference from the LCBO where ...

Buffalo - Coca Cola Field

Went to a Buffalo Bisons game here yesterday. Very pleasant experience from start to finish. The best thing, though, is without a doubt the craft beer selection. First of all, it looks like Founders has made a deal to be one of the primary breweries in the park as a whole (i.e. not confined to a &qu...

Re: Buffalo NY - what to see and explore?

No more Lagunitas at Real Sports? That was the only thing I could drink there the last few times I went (haven't been since 2017). Still there, but the last couple times I tried it on tap I wasn't particularly impressed. Found it to be way sweeter than past renditions. I went for a Boston Lager ins...

Re: Buffalo NY - what to see and explore?

True, but serviceable enough. I remember the days not too long ago when the arrival of Southern Tier IPA at the LCBO was a very big deal indeed!

Re: Buffalo NY - what to see and explore?

Beautiful. Now I'm getting excited! Also, just in case anyone is interested, I emailed the Anchor Bar (a likely destination for some of my hoser friends) and asked for their draught list (or the craft portion thereof), as it does not appear on the website. They were nice enough to get back to me wit...
