Re: Saison Dupont spotted

Rudy, The lcbo.com website is very easy to search for availability and shows you which store to go to (click the map too.) Search "saison" then have a look at each store's inventory. At present "Saison" is not showing but it's too early, give it a few days. Happy fishing, JK. Out on shelves at Bayvi...

Topic: Heads Up - Headstrong Pale
Replies: 12
Views: 4212

Headstrong is the best of both worlds, a locally-made micro with a bit of west-coast pale ale stylings (and we know few west coast micros will ever materialize here.) Wellington may be just the 'hired guns' but I feel between the water they use in Guelph and their hand of expertise, Ontario-made Hea...

You can usually find the McEwans Scotch Ale on clear-out at the LCBO if anyone wants to try just a single bottle. The cases must fall apart or something.

Re: new at The Beer Store

Someone said Creemore was made with Slovak (not Czech) malts, does that make any sense? The Saaz hops makes sense, as used in Urquell. I'm guessing the Hops don't much care if there on the Czech or Slovak side of the border - especially as they were one country not all that long ago. They are proba...

Re: Heads Up - Headstrong Pale

J Headstrong Pale on the shelves. $2.95 a bottle. Bargain. The Wellington-made "Big Hole Headstrong" has been out a little while in Ontario, but since it is an extremely well made PA/APA (and a head-scratcher of a deal) this bears repeating as good news for locals. (Basically 3 bucks for 2 beers' v...

Re: The people who just don't know.

And then some guy come over...... "All of these f'n microbreweries... undercut the guys like labatt, molson, and create lay offs (and are the reason for the labatt lay off in Toronto.)" and that people like all of us here should be ashamed because we buy beer that does not stimulate the economy.......

Re: Canadian Brewing Awards Propeller Gold

This fall our 650ML Extra Special Bitter will be available at the LCBO for their Autumn Ales Promotion. We are going to submitting the Porter for a future selection. Congrats on the medal-winning Porter, Chris... and Bon Courage with its eventual release here. I don't know if I've tried many Propel...

Re: new at The Beer Store

I will say that I preferred Ste. Andre a few years ago before production moved to the Cool plant. It's still OK, but it doesn't seem as unique and flavourful as it used to be (and I thought this before I found out about the move, so it's not a case of bias against Cool tainting my judgement...). I ...

Re: Oh by the way...

Sgt. Major IPA won a silver medal at the Canadian Brewing Awards! Gold Medals went to: Phillips Original IPA, Old Yale Sargent's IPA( both from B.C.) and Wild Rose Industrial Park IPA of Calgary. This is the first medal of any kind we have won, so it's quite exciting. P.S I'm posting a lot because ...

It will cost me as much for the lables for this as it does for a years supply of labels for the IPA because i have to order 10,000 labels minimum. I know Belgian beer is not your kick, but some Belgians have no labels... I'd still buy a short run of your beer with no label, but that's... priobably ...

Re: new at The Beer Store

Speaking of wishful thinking, every beer store in town has the Haker-P Munich Edelhell listed as a stocked item but none have it...when I see it I will buy a couple of cases as I can't rely on the flakey way distribution of craft and import brands are distributed/ordered. Spoken like a true Ontario...

Hope the fun of it makes it all the more worth your while, it is a rare event.

As you can see from other comments we're like kids at Christmas waiting for this.
