Re: Yep.

Sure there will be a line, but based on that price point, I probably won't be in it. I certainly liked the normal version, but not nearly enough to pay this much. I think the original one I tried was mind-blowing, back around 2009. So much big velvety bourbon character. The second one was I think a...

Re: Coming Soon to the LCBO

After buying a case of the Rodenbach vintage, I'm ok with missing this release. One day I'll try BCBS, but for now I'll stock up on dragon's milk :)

Re: Schneider Weisse Mein Cuvée Barrique

I absolutely loved this beer. The wine/barrel/sour reminds me of Panil Barrique but there is so much weizen awesomeness that follows the initial tartness.

Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

Since Rodenbach is pasteurized anyways, I'd argue there isn't much point in aging it. The vintage might be different over time though.

Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

Just got back from QQ. 2013 Rodenbach vintage is out! I don't remember seeing this on any seasonal lists. Also quite a bit of Unibroue 17 Grand Reserve.

Re: Ontario Announces First Winning Bidders for Sale of Beer in Grocery Stores

I've actually got no real conception of what 10,000 square feet looks like in grocery store form. Does anyone have a better idea, using stores in the downtown Toronto area as comparables? Can we use Rabba foods as a unit of measurement? I think 10k square feet would be about two Rabbas :) Even the ...

Could the bar make the pick up? What funny laws we have....


That's a good one...the general public can buy kegs from breweries...I'm sure bars can't.
I've heard you can't just walk into an LCBO and buy alcohol to stock a bar.

Re: beerbistro

I think there are still a few ways to differentiate your draft list that people aren't doing. There are 125 breweries, 38 brew pubs, and 47 contract brewers in this province, yet draft lists at Volo/Bar-Hop etc focus on a subset of about 20-30 of them. You can make arguments that these 20-30 brewer...

Re: beerbistro

It's bloody near impossible to have a special beer list these days. You can either try to import your own, which basically nobody does any more, or you can spend a lot of time on the phone with brewers begging them for kegs of their special stuff, which I think normally comes with lower margins for...
