Re: On the OSBA

My understanding is that the term "contract brewer" refers to any brewer that does not own their own brewery, but instead contracts with another brewery to produce their beer. The involvement of the contractee in the brewing process may vary, as will the quality of the beer being produced, but that...

They have had many good products at some moment in LCBO history.

What troubles me is that they only sell some products long enough to establish a bit of interest before they vanish forever. Seems an expensive way to market products.

Re: On the OSBA

Ron Moir has also made it clear that if contract brewers are let in, he wants no part of the OSBA. In that case, he should withdraw from the group now, since they already have Denison's, St. Andre & Skeena as members... :roll: What are "contract brewers" - are you talking about the original bre...

http://www.ratebeer.com/Forums/Topic-34112.htm What an annoying thread to read. There are lots of great Canadian micros. Just because most don't fit within a seemingly narrow taste profile doesn't make them crap. Some views were vague but there was some informed, thoughtful discussion of the attitu...

Then I'll join you. No, I'm very pro-Government,& be great if we got one. 3 views: A) If the LCBO believe they will make money carrying out somewhat uneven seasonal release programs in a sort of confusing & obfuse manner, I can see very clearly how all the other beurocracy in this country mu...

Tried the Denison's last night, it was one of the best things I've tasted. they sell a lot so I guess it's fairly fresh all the time.

The blonde is worth trying just because it's different, it is no Achel but it has a hearty alcohol-driven warmth I kinda like. I don't say I dislike all commercial lambic products, I just prefer Belle Vue! I have bought entire cases of that Belle Vue gueuze, very nice everyday beer, and it was $2.95...

It's a shame but that's the reality. We've already seen the size of our Autumn and Winter orders cut back so this program is going in absolutely the wrong direction. I know I'm preaching to the converted here but every bottle sold helps. I appreciate the problem (you should see all the Winter Relea...

There is an excellent discussion on RateBeer concerning our Micro Brew scene - not all kisses and roses but quite constructive anyway. Just as the VQA created wine-buyer confidence by applying critical standards, so should all Ontario micro breweries in their Association be open to objective review ...

LCBO Summer Release!

Well they've hatched a number of the announced items (June 14 'zero inventory" but on the site nevertheless.) Christoffel, Shoffernhofen, Half-E-Weizen, few others. Not yet showing Erdinger, Edelweiss, Chapeau or (most importantly) Saison Dupont - can anyone confirm Saison is coming, or is there any...
