That's a pretty big financial blow. Not just the marketing money they paid, but the loss of the target market. Pro sports fans are about the biggest sucker consumers out there. Fiercely loyal (aka fanatical), willing to spend stupidly (supporting professional athlete/entertainers) and totally tribal...

Steve, I hope your new home is a nice one.
Are you sure five people are enough to help you move? Or do you just need a hand taking back the empties? :lol:

Estonian lager or your favourite Kazakhstani beer. Ha! And what about the Kraplachastan Beer, people always to assume the 1.4 billion Euro Lagers are exactly same. And it always Polish and Russian and Ukranian and Estoniadians hogging ALL shelf space. These people, I tell you Mr. Esprit, have never...

Some of the city's corporate pub chains make it difficult for small breweries to sell the...

Re: Ottawa pubs

The Clocktower often has one of their own on handpump. It's an okay brewpub, but I would put it near the bottom of the list if you are only in town for a few days.[/quote] I would toss a vote of support in for their cask conditioned ale. Last I had it was a few months back and it was pretty nice. Mo...

BTW - even though I like to repeat myslef, the real problem here is not mastering the forum's posting tools.
I think I got the dosage wrong, I'll check back after a few more pints. :oops:

I've had the same impression. Where is Sleeman's defining characteristic? The clear bottle is tired (and never that good an idea for a UV sensitive product). The beer and the price are both mainstream; two stronger and similar competitors. Where is the value proposition? The telling sign was when th...
