Yeah, it is pretty sad what's been happening to the import selection in Quebec. I remember in the mid-90s visiting the SAQ Bieres store and being amazed at the selection. It was probably the first time I ever spent $100 at a single time on beer (this has since happened a few times since finding Prem...

It looks like Vintages isn't quite finished releasing beers yet. Coming out on October 6th will be two popular lambics, Mort Subite Cassis & Kriek.

Excellent news. Hopefully they'll roll it out into more stores. I'll have to go and pick some up soon.

According to C'est What, some more interesting beers that will be available are Big Rock's Chinook Lager, their house Coffee Porter cask conditioned, KLB Alien Ale, Trafalgar's Roggen (Rye Beer), McAuslan's nitro Cream Ale and Belle Gueule from Quebec. Probably the most interesting is Belle Gueule (...

Thanks for the news, Dave.

C'est What's fest is always a fun time - a hell of a lot more relaxing for sampling than the Toronto festival at Fort York.

One tip - get there as early as you can if you want seats, and in the past the sampling has ended at 10pm.

Schoune beers are unavailable in Toronto. We get a good selection of Unibroue and McAuslan here, but not much from any other Quebec breweries. If you can take a little road trip to Montreal, there is a great beer store at the Metro Joannette, located at 349 rue De L'Eglise in Verdun. They have an ex...

I believe we will have to order at least 5 cases of any other brand to include it with the HopDevil shipment.

Perhaps some of us from the forum can split a 5-case order amongst us. Personally I'd love some Storm King or Old Horizontal.

Outstanding news Peter, thanks. HopDevil is a fantastic beer, one which will definitely help ease the winter blues come next March. And the price you mentioned is almost exactly the equivalent of its cost at Premier in Buffalo. But we're getting a better deal, since buying it in Buffalo would incur ...

I've been down to Denison's a couple of times recently for the film fest. I don't think they've changed the Weizen. They do, however, have a couple of new beers. Their seasonal Marzen is out, and it is very nice. They also have a Raspberry Wheat, which is darker than KLB's. Not bad, but not upon the...

I was at C'est What this week, and they had slightly refreshed their beer menu, for the first time in ages (or so it seemed).

They had a new brew from Robinson in Mississauga, St. George Ale, quite a nice brew. They also had Church Key & Blanche de Chambly, both rarities in TO.
