Re: lcboapi.com and drinkvine.com

I was actually asking just because if it were dockerized you could push updates to a registry (ecr) and let ecs just magically update itself. Plus then it's easy for someone else (me) to pay the hosting.

But free works too, of course.

Re: lcboapi.com and drinkvine.com

How's it implemented? Is it dockerized? Could we just toss it on AWS?

Re: LCBO Spring Seasonal Beer Release

I'm pumped for Mam'zelle and Frucht. Two high rated sours I haven't tried.

Re: What're you drinking right now?

Radical.

Honestly though, that IPA has been out for a bit now. I had one on the weekend and it was good, but not quite what it was fresh.

Re: What're you drinking right now?

If you go into the bar right now, they have an upscaled yuzu IPA, which is basically just yuzu with more everything but water. Closest I've found to a yuzu bomb.

Re: Beer in Grocery Stores

Freshness is a problem all over. Even some high-end shops in the US stock old IPA.

The importer (Gleemer, who posts here from time to time) :

He also gets this stuff in seemingly on the regular, if you're up to get a case. Follow him on Twitter or Facebook or whatever and you'll get your hands on it eventually.

Re: Beer in Grocery Stores

That actually reminds me, has anyone looked for beer in the upscale grocery stores in town? I thought they might have good selections like in the US. Not just whole foods, but what about places like Pusateries or McEwan?

Re: Beer in Grocery Stores

The Loblaws across the street from that farm boy location has a pretty respectable selection. Way more craft than macro and it's almost all refrigerated. Better than an average LCBO, I'd say. As for farm boy, I don't know what they are like for beer. Anyone from Ottawa on here know what the ones out...

Re: BrewDog in Toronto

That's specifically the corner of King and River, which would be a great spot for a big brewpub. Not far from Aviary/Longslice.

Re: Coming Soon to the LCBO

I got a few and loved the first I tried. Nice depth of flavour, which I attribute to the variety of barrels used in making it. It's certainly expensive, but I'm glad I got more than one.

Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

Really depends on the location. Most of the good hoods in the city have local joints where conversations are struck up. Other places, not so much. Toronto's definitely not the friendliest city around though, that's for sure. Like in Leslieville, where I live, I've struck up conversations in The Roy,...

Re: LCBO Online Exclusives

It's probably easier to charge that price here because there isn't much competition. Like if I could get the Crooked Stave sours that were just online for 8.25 for a 375 ml bottle all the time, I probably wouldn't ever spend 30 on Cascade. But a lot of the time it's them or a not as good sour if I'm...

Re: What're you drinking right now?

Salvator is pretty darn good, and nicely priced at 3 bucks. It's sorta funny. For all the LCBO stinks, sometimes they can bring in a good beer like this, relatively fresh, at a good price. My experience in shops in the US is getting a beer like that would be a little dicey. They all have it, but it ...
