In the whole "hiya, I'm too into my second '04 Old Crusty (not to mention the yummy rums)", could someone please be so kind as to post links. I'll be too into the turkey stuffing tomorrow to pull 'em up on my own. ;)

The last time Skull Splitter came through ('97?), it sold way too quickly for my liking (translation: never got any), and I recall the LCBO rep claiming it was youngsters (?) buying it based upon the name. Never thought I'd have a second chance at it in this province. Glad to be wrong.

this link is good: http://ebw.evergreen.ca/visit/getting-here/ their free shuttle running 7 days a week looks like a good option, and it mentions some other possibilities too. I looked at that when the details became available; wish I knew if there'd be increased shuttle service during the fest. It...

Slowly thinning out the cellar some. Having a Old Crusty from '04, and later in the day will polish off my last of the '06 Liefmans Goudenband. Would happily stock up on both again.

so i should only buy 6 bottles of any beer because I assume other people will come in to that location to buy the rest? No; you shouldn't clear out a store. How is that not greed-head behaviour? and I should assume that a) no other bottles will be ordered, b) that someone wouldn't check other LCBO ...

meanwhile, we just bought all 24 at an east york location. the guy admitted they were leaked by accident. How nice of you :roll: ; picked up 6 at Royal York & left another 7 on the shelves. Good spirits should go hand-in-hand with good manners, IMO. The Var Tripel was on the shelves there as we...

InBev Bass (nitro can) -- I finished my Triple Bock, but couldn't do the same with this one. Ugh. Molson Kick --...

The best beer I've had for heat was the Peach & Pepper Ale from Great Lakes; I'd so love to have that one again.

I take it that the Morimoto Soba is no longer part of the Rogue promo?
