Re: Great Lakes

Anyone have a scoop on whether or not Hanlon's Point will indeed be released in March of 2016 as indicated on the brewery site?

The Collingwood saison is in a can, that's 2 by my count. What a time....!


Truly the year for saison in a can or two.


Sawdust city also has one, and Black Oak's Saison is now re-branded as Beat the Heat. That's four so far, when last year we had none.

Re: Ontario Brewing Awards

Just grabbed their 360 pale and northern logger from Loblaws down at lakeshore and leslie. Really? Wow! Thanks for mentioning this. Someone asked in another thread if there was a website that would give grocery store beer inventories. I can't see there being a single site, but wouldn't it be nice i...

Re: Ontario Brewing Awards 2016

Some interesting results, I would like to see the list of also rans, just to gauge who they were up against. I'm also surprised the don't run a fall awards for those under represented seasonal styles. These awards don't mean anything. Look at the number of bronzes that weren't awarded. Nobody submi...

Re: Beer Coming to Grocery Stores?

Longo's at the ACC has beer and wine for consumption on site...I've only delivered there and haven't seen it in person. It is possible.

Re: Bar Volo - new(ish) food menu

Could this be the end of Volo? http://thebulletin.ca/downtown-groups-wanted-more-say-on-yonge-tower/ I think they've known for years that if/when the tower goes up, Volo goes away. Yes, they've known for a few years...the "second location" as far as I've heard was always going to be a rep...

I agree he responded poorly, however I don't think the post that turned him (Portwood's) was harmless.

Re: Keep6 Imports opens online bottle shop

Just wanted to post a quick note about what a great experience I had with keep6. A few days ago I placed an order. Within two days, I got a notification that the order was ready.
Today I went to the LCBO warehouse...everyone there was super nice and I was out within 20 minutes.

Well done guys!

It's Hamilton. The sign will stay up on a place that shut down ten years ago. :)
