I work near the Manulife Centre, so perhaps I'll wander down there to see if anything's out yet.

Definitely looking forward to the Hopback - should be a good "heat emergency" beer!

Thanks for the replies. I've added a section for The Beach:

Well, I went to La Palette today for brunch. I was most impressed. It is a fantastic little bistro, with a relaxed atmosphere, friendly staff and a cool decor. I had a crepe filled with apricots covered in a maple glaze - yummy. And to complement this, a delicious draught Blanche de Chambly. The bee...

Peter, I'm sorry there haven't been any existing consignment sales from the site yet. I was hoping this forum would allow folks that are looking to share a case to meet. Hopefully this will pick up soon.

Actually, if I understand the LCBO's information correctly, there is in fact a provincial markup of $0.676 per litre for beer. This is listed as the "Border Levy" on my Premier page on the site. The rates differ for wine and spirits.

Josh, can you clarify your point of Ontario being a duopoly? Alcohol in this province is governed by one body: the government (AGCO). There are however, two main distribution and retail channels for alcohol. With both the LCBO or Beer Store, the goverment sets the most of the rules and monetarily be...

Peter, Thank you for your generous offer to investigate the possibility of bringing in Pike IPA. I'm sure we all appreciate it. Personally I do not believe $3 per bottle of beer is unreasonable (as you have noted Peter, I willingly pay $17+ for NG Belgian Red). I believe this might be a case of "the...

I receive many e-mails about the lack of coverage of the Beach on the site. Unfortunately, it is an area that is very far away for me, and I rarely get out there. So I'm hoping for a little help on this one - what are some good pubs in the Beach I can use to populate a Beach page in the Good Pub Gui...

I've spent $75 on a case of beer before - in Buffalo. If anyone is willing to spend this amount on beer, I would suggest doing the same. In Buffalo you'll be able to get the beer quicker, and you can get a selection instead of a single brew.

Hi Lyle - welcome to the forum! The 60-minute IPA sounds great - anxiously anticipating it and many many others. Esprit - welcome as well! Thanks for the update regarding Pike and the heads up on the Pale Ale release. It's such a shame that we have to wait until next summer for Brutal Bitter and the...

Sorry about not getting back to you Jon - I did very much like the Pike IPA. Thanks again for giving me one of your treasured few. Obviously a beer that would be a welcome addition to Toronto. Now that the forum is up, we can pressure Esprit to bring it in (or at least a few cases for the Bartowel f...

I went here for the first time last week and was impressed. It's great to see a good beer pub in an area without much support for anything except the big beers. It is lively pub, with a small patio and a large inside area. They had a good selection of beers, some interesting taps but definitely lack...

One more thing...I know its not on the level of Liberty, but the Rebel House has Big Rock's Chinook Pale Ale as their guest tap. I don't think I had ever tried it on draught before, but I had a pint on Thurs. and it wasn't too bad.

The LCBO has confirmed that there will be a Pale Ale themed release next year. There's the fall release in Sept., presumably a winter release in November, and the Stouts & Porters in on Jan. 14th. However, there's also an Irish Ale theme release in the works, and it would make sense that it would co...
