I'll trade you 1/2 hour of my charming company for a bottle of the DFH 90! :wink:

The amazing thing about surveys is you really wonder if they are trying to gather information or just impose their opinions on you. The reality is, I see how rarely the data from surveys is ever even looked at. Sometimes the mailing list is handy, but you'd be surprised at how much is spent collecti...

Maybe a new thread would be in order here, but I think this question is close enough...

Does anybody have any recommendations for the Lewiston area?

Off the small top of my head, I'd like to see: Murphy's Stout, Seems to come and go, haven't seen it for a while Abita would be nice, but I'm not sure how they faired in Katrina. Maybe the water supply was ruined? Granville Island Lager And I will add my vote for Sierra Nevada, I't been a while sinc...

The sad part is that style labels usually are used to exclude things. For instance, people will say "I don't like XYZ style". It's too bad some people will close thier mind to new experiences. Style labels can be a ghetto too! I think your comments on the mutation of styles may take away some of the...

Another nice beer that disappeared some time ago was Conners Stout.
I think that was around the time Brick got involved. I guess they couldn't follow the recipe.

I LIKE this thread! How about taking loose singles of micro beer from the brown wicker bin and swapping them into cases of Corona, then reclosing them? Those Corona drinkers would find themselves at a party with nothing to drink but Church Key Holy Smoke, taste it and maybe like it! BING, new conve...

The only downside is that the next poor customer might actually be lead to beleive the product was always on that shelf and therefore properly handled.

Fair enough...it just sounded like an attempt by someone associated with OCB trying to get us to help retain their cooler space. I'd love to see lots of stores go the route of the one north of the 401 where Yorkdale mall is (wish I could remember the ACTUAL name or number of the store). Anyway, the...

How about a little bit of civil disobedience? If you don't like where a beer is displayed, pick up a case and plop it where you think it should be. One man can't make a difference, but if nothing else it'll make you feel better. That is a great idea! Not destructive but just a littel disruptive. Al...

Regardless, welcome to the forums.


I assure you I do not work for a micro, I'm not even close to the industry. I'm just a picky and sometimes cranky consumer!

Time to take LCBO merchandising to task.

Hello everybody, this is my first post, so if you disagree please be kind and if you agree I encourage you to buy me a round! I have always enjoyed this site, but am not much of a forum type. A recent trend I have seen has changed that... I'm sure you have noticed the LCBO recently moving all (or mo...
