Hopefully it will reopen

Hopefully it will reopen. Seems like the landlord has a chronic problem...himself (or herself). From my understanding they screwed over Denisons, and now perhaps Duggans.... would likely make any bar potential think twice...nice location, but not THAT nice. I agree having a long term stable tenant a...

Denison's Weissbier

I've been elated ever since Denison's Weissbier has become available in cans -- buying out the stock at my local LCBO with each visit. While I love the current flavour, even before it was available in cans, the Weissbier that has been available on draft didn't seem to be "as good" as what ...

Probably either Mill St Stock or tankhouse...only because it's easy to pick up kegs to put in the keg fridge. Wish Ontario had a better system of distributing kegs....my rotation would be much more varied.

As I've said here on these boards before when I grab a six pack of a Unibroue from the top shelf dust falls all round. Woo! Pre-aged Unibroue! Actually the best unibroue I think I've ever had was some Maudite that they had to blow the dust off of at my parents local beer store (a VERY small town ne...

Went last night. Great to have another place to go. Food was great. Had the oysters and the meat pie. Beer was great...No 9 was very fresh. I hope that they last there! Disappointed with the downstairs though....it's not set up completely yet, but I used to love the downstairs when it was still Deni...

I totally agree, going to The Beer Store is like going to a Timmies Drive Thru. You line up, tell them what you want, if they haven't got it you pick something else. The product comes out, maybe fresh maybe not, I know now to look for dust. Comparing them to Timmies is giving them too much credit ;)

I actually like the LCBO and hope they keep it....I may disagree with some of the product choices they make or do not make but on the whole it is a very classy and customer friendly experience. The beer store however is perhaps the most ghetto retail experience I have ever had. Even dollar stores an...

Allow beer and wine in variety stores

Take away the beer store...allow sales in variety/grocery stores. Please Dalton save us from this out dated model!

Interesting article in Torontoist http://torontoist.com/2009/12/heroes_and_villains_2009_villains.php?gallery0Pic=3#gallery Every time I go to the beer store I hate it a little more. I was there two days ago -- had to wait 15 minutes while some guy unloaded a years worth of wine bottles. Then I of c...

Beer Sampling in Grocery Stores....

Oh, if only we could even discuss this as a possibility in Ontario!

North Carolina is considering a law to allow beer sampling in grocery stores, where wine tasting is already allowed.

Absolutely Ridiculous!

The Ontario gov't should definitely break the foreign stranglehold on the beer that Ontario consumers drink! This just highlights the ineptitude of our regulators! Put the beer store back in the hands of Ontario! OR allow new owners to enter the market! (ie private beer stores!!!)

Wow....Just sitting here at the Harbord house. I'm very impressed. Much better than Rowers ever was!(it may be a little of a different place for a different time of my life). I'll write a more thorough review later.
