Re: Wvrst to open on King West in TO

I was going to ask if WVRST or Bar Hop had said anything about the pilot. I did see that tweet (the one still live) so suspected they had an opinion on the situation, but not nearly as vocal as some of the others in the cheesy part of the strip. I just can't imagine that a decrease in vehicular traf...

Re: Vermont

That trek through upper New York state is always quite strange. It's like a part of the U.S.A. that has been left behind.

Re: Bermuda

Alas I got to go thanks to a client back then, and that association has long since ended. I remember times fondly and wish to go back at some point. But sorry, no updates from me I'm afraid.

Re: Miami

There's lots of beer in the Wynwood area that has emerged in the last few years. One new place that I really enjoyed was Veza Sur. Within walking distance is also J Wakefield, Concrete Beach and Wynwood Brewing. You could easily spend all day and night wandering around the area. There isn't much bee...

Re: LCBO Spring 2018 Craft Beer Release

Anyone excited for the A La Fut? That is actually through my agency, which has been dormant for a while but resurrected when I began working with ALF. I realize that the price point is high - but it is a very expensive cost and of course the LCBO does not flex at all on its side when it comes to mar...

Re: Wvrst to open on King West in TO

Well, it is in one of the main corridors linking the GO Trains to Union Station, so there's going to be a ton of people walking around. We'll have to see how open it is to the thoroughfare vs. enclosing it. I walked by it this week and it is a pretty sweet location, right near the GO train tracks. I...

Re: Wvrst to open on King West in TO

And now WVRST is also opening one in Union Station! I think this is great news, not only as I frequent Union Station from time to time and there is a dearth of places for a drink. (I know CW etc. is close by) A positive step for a public hub like Union where the new hospitality options won't be the ...

Re: BCBS Black Friday in TO - Nov 24

Yeah, BCBS was tasting great on draught on Friday. It wasn't too busy during the ticketed hour, and then at 6pm anyone could have walked in and ordered it from the bar.

I stayed for a 2nd glass, because why not. It was $15 for 10oz pour which is pretty great IMO.

GLB 30th Anniversary Film Screening - Dec 10

http://www.greatlakesbeer.com/30-years-great-lakes-beer-documentary-debut/ As many of you know, GLB turned 30 years old back on February 12, 2017. The brewery decided that instead of celebrating for just the one day we'd have a year long party... we'd roll out over 80 different beers, collaborate wi...

Re: CRAFT Beer Market - Toronto

I believe this is opening up to the public next week (if not sooner). I got a media invite for Tuesday after work.

The media people say it's got 160 unique draughts, with a claim of Ontario's largest selection.

Re: BCBS Black Friday in TO - Nov 24

They are also doing a bottle release as part of an "LCBO Pop-Up Store" on 600 King St. West starting at 9:30am on Fri Nov 24. Not sure what the pricing would be for the draught. I stopped in yesterday but they had already kicked the Halia which was a couple of days ago. They had Matilta an...

Re: A Night with Hill Farmstead & Radical Road

I think I figured it out. They're trying to provoke an overreaction from the authorities to be used as a publicity stunt to raise awareness for their bar and the oppressive alcohol regulations in the province. I hope this is the case! I can't tell you how many times I've had conversations with bar ...

Re: Molson Buys TDD

I wonder how it will affect participation/inclusion in the likes of Cask Days, availability at top tier beer bars and that kind of thing. Presumably the same guys will be there (at least for a little while) - not many cases I can think of where brewers with good personal relationships around have be...
