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...

Yep, Smokeless Joe is in the process of contacting a number of U.S. microbreweries that conform to Ontario standards (i.e. alcohol labeling, etc.) to see if he can get in a shipment for the pub. Victory is on the list.

I agree with hop_head, definitely pick up one of Papazian's books to start. If you want to dive right in, go down to Brew-Your-Own at 168 McCaul downtown. They're probably the best beer homebrew shop in the city (at least what I've been to). They know their stuff and they are very friendly. They wil...

It's in Ottawa, from July 27th-29th.

However, it is being organized by the same group as the Toronto festival, so I wouldn't expect there will be anything drastically different (beer-wise). I could be wrong, though. One thing is for sure - definitely less crowds than TO.

Funny...It *was* live when I posted the message. Definitely does not look good for a 2001 Festibiere.

Sounds like a cool place. I've never been there, and it's moved to the top of the list for the next evening out.

Quick question: is it "pub-like", in other words, it is a nice place for drinks alone?

Has anyone tried Church Key Ale? It is the only product from a new brewery in Campbellford (Church Key Brewing), started by John Graham, who used to work at the Amsterdam in Toronto. Supposedly it is a cross between a cream ale and a stock ale. It is evidently coming to Toronto on draught this summe...

They have a website <a href="http://www.gcbf.net/">here</a>. No sign of participating breweries yet.

I've heard from friends that went to Guelph U. that the fest wasn't that great either...
