Re: Bar Hop King vs. Bar Hop Brewco...

On the whole, I've had better drinking and dining experiences at the King Street location, and enjoy the atmosphere a bit more as well. The only drawback is that it can be difficult to get a seat at the bar, since the place is always packed. My preference is King, but you'll have an easier time fin...

Re: Bar Hop King vs. Bar Hop Brewco...

King is smaller, brewco is newer, so a little nicer, much larger and has a rooftop patio. The menus are different, but not so different that it really matters. They're also walking distance apart, so why not try both?

Re: Witchstock 2018

Sounds really good, but they are not messing around with that price tag. 120 (probably what, 150 after the taxes/fees?) for a three hour event is steep. It was $45 last year, though you had to buy tokens after that. Also worth noting that last year they limited it to 350 people per session, this yea...

Re: Downtown Toronto LCBO’s

Yeah, Coxwell is my local. I wonder sometimes if they're right to get as much beer in as they do. KBS, for example, has been sitting on the shelves there for ages.

Didn't the Beach get a nice LCBO just a couple of years ago? I haven't been in, but it looks.... Shiny.

Re: Downtown Toronto LCBO’s

Summerhill is still your best bet, but the beer selection has gotten better in most LCBOs to the point where you might not really care. Inventories are online, so you could just look ahead and see if a closer one has what you're looking for. Heck, you could order online in advance and have it shippe...

If you're out there Kyle, I accept gratitude/commissions in the form of beer. :D

Re: LCBO Online Exclusives

So disappointed...I was online at 8:00, but didn't check that fervently. Agreed on the lottery system and introduction of captchas. Seems strange for something like beer, but there was a time when they had special beers through Vintages, so why not? Any recommendations for great saisons within reac...

Re: LCBO Online Exclusives

I prefer lotteries in general to the wait until a specific time and race everyone else to checkout first.

Unfortunately, Liquid Art doesn't seem to be listed under "Collective Arts Brewery" so I can't help there.

Re: Doug Ford

Doug Ford as Premier doesn't scare me as much as the hydro bills I've received since returning from five years out of the country. She's as dead as the raccoon I saw on the side of the road this morning. Unless there's a proposal to cut the cost of hydro generation, which the conservatives do not h...

Re: LCBO Delivery Time

It's not always the store. I went I three days after I got a shipping notification once and my local spent 20 minutes searching in the back for it despite it not showing in their system. It arrived a few days later.

Re: Mondial...

I used to go to this every year, but I got bored with the samish lineup every year. Three Floyds, Jester King and Crooked Stave is pretty good though.
