Re: Transitioning

Anything Cameron's should do the trick ... interesting but not too far out. I dunno -- if I had first sampled Cameron's Dark 266, I would have been tempted to pass on their entire line-up. Watery is not a phrase that ought be associated with a beer. To state the obvious, everything hinges on the ty...

Any update on the Ayinger special order?

How about the Rogue?

What he said -- should we be expecting it to come in prior to the summer release, or should we just start stocking up on the local micros now?

Cellaring Beer

I've had a few beers cellaring away for a while now, and recently have just started to harvest the fruits of my labour (namely, resisting temptation). I did make a rookie mistake -- not noting when every bottle was purchased -- but have found it not to impede upon my enjoyment of a good brew. I do h...

Is it possible that one bottle from your allotment was tested by the LCBO?

Re: Private Ordering

Any luck with other California brewers like Stone, Alesmith, or North Coast? Heard from the LCBO a couple of weeks back regarding the possibility of obtaining some Old Rasputin from North Coast; the brewery had a minimum order of 72 cases. Thanks for the Quebec-related links btw -- will have to loo...

Insofar as I can recall from my conversation with a Unibroue rep at this summer's beer fest, the Unibroue 11 will be released in the same manner as the 10 -- i.e.: limited in number, and not available at the SAQ. I would imagine that it should be available soon, as the French version of http://www.u...

Lovely. Last year I did a search for it on the LCBO website & assumed it was all gone when nothing popped up; must've been a Vintages release. If the LCBO had listed it amongst their available beers, I would've bought what's been sitting around while it was still good. Might just pick up one bottle ...

Where could you possibly be that is the epicentre of 5 LCBO's? One of the few benefits to being stuck out in the wild west end is that I'm only about a 7 minute car ride from the Crossroads store and a couple of decent stores located in malls. Mind you, it's not all fun and games. Recently, the LCB...

Anyone know if there's even so much as a remote chance of seeing any Wieselburger Stammbräu on the shelves again this summer? Would love to have some on hand when the warmer weather rolls around.

I keep seeing cases of Rescousse in the LCBO stores in my area. Haven't picked it up yet, and was wondering if anyone had tried it.

Can they stock the Atrium, Davisville, Manulife, Bayview Village, or Richmond Hill? Nooooooo. Considering that 3 of the 5 locations that have it still are stores that I live near, I'm not complaining! There is, of course, a trade-off, given that downtown normally has the better selection. Was Skull...

Went down to the Crossroads, and was able to find most of the spring release. A brief note to whoever bought the entire stock of Hop Devil: not all of us can afford to drink at Smokeless Joe's. By all means grab a bunch for yourself, but don't be a hog, eh?

Mildly peeved, Rob
