Re: LCBO Winter craft beer release 2015

Most of the beers they have are at Sin & Redemption (plus sister bars) for much cheaper prices. Those bars really have some great bargains on their bottle lists... Half those bottles are not in stock and likely never have been, and to that extent the lists at Sin et al are a complete sham. Last...

Re: Collective Arts & Nickel Brook Open House

There's also shuttle buses from Toronto for $10 round trip. Great planning on their part.

Re: Cask Days 2015

OK, but the House Ales Porter House was listed at 5.8% so unless I'm missing something here it just seemed like an arbitrary decision not to give out 10oz pours by the server. All casks with a red dot on its sign were 5oz only. This included all the imports/high ABV. Not sure why House Ales was inc...

Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

new format at TBS.. seems like an odd beer to carry in cases.. but what do I know. Fruli Strawberry Beer 24 × Bottle 330 ml Price: $72.95 Even weirder is that bartenders seem to pour it over ice. Certainly led to my friend promptly sending it back when he got a beer with ice cubes in it. That being...

Re: LCBO Winter craft beer release 2015

I also thought that part of the reason the beer shelf space shrunk was because they combined ciders/coolers/beer into one category.
I remember reading an annual report about it.

Last minute, but I'm looking for one ticket for session 4 if anyone is looking to get rid of one.

Re: Great Lakes

For anyone who didn't already know - Great lakes have officially discontinued their Devils Pale Ale opening up a spot for a future beer to fit into their core lineup. http://www.canadianbeernews.com/2015/10/09/great-lakes-dropping-devils-pale-ale-from-brand-line-up/ Can't say I'm happy about that. ...

Re: Labatt buys Millstreet

I still drink cobblestone stout and the vanilla porter on occasion. Tankhouse is a very different beer compared to what it was but such is life. Ben Johnson wrote a good article about it. http://torontolife.com/food/wine-and-beer/labatt-buying-mill-street-brewery-is-actually-not-a-bad-thing-for-craf...

Wasn't it Wellington that did a smoked meat and brussel sprouts beer a few years ago?

Re: Becoming a Brewer

I thought my downtown condo was too small to brew in....until my girlfriend bought a 1 gallon kit from Brookyln Brew Shop. Turns out we can (and now do) brew in our place. I'm not saying get their kit, but think smaller batches and I'm sure you can brew at home. EDIT: Also, I wanted a job in the bee...

Re: First time tapping a keg - advice needed

Definitely will work with TBS keg pump. International (European) kegs use a different coupler.
FYI, the only beer store location in the city that rents the pumps is Dupont and Bathurst.

Re: Zwanze Day 2015

We showed up after 9pm. Walked right in, all beers except one or two gone.
The lines were almost non-existent until they closed the outside bar.
Everything I had was fantastic except for the DDC symbiose #5 : a weird cheerio/graham cracker flavour killed any real funk or bitterness.
Great night.
