Re: Saturation? Maverick Brewing

Hearing lots of things about these guys as they get up and running.

They emailed me a while back asking to participate in the Brewer's Backyard and I asked for more info about the brewery and got no response.

Any news / details about them?

Re: LCBO Online Exclusives

3F and Sang Noir already sold out. I wonder who is buying up the stock? Pretty high price tag for individual buyers I would think. Group buys being organized? Maybe licensees snapping them up?

Re: Stone Brewing - Thoughts Nowadays?

It's crazy how times have changed, as there was barely anyone there for the Stone tasting, but I really don't think many people knew about it either. Greg was in attendance and was definitely chatty - I recorded a 45 podcast with him and Jason from Indie. It was a fun conversation and we covered a l...

Stone Brewing - Thoughts Nowadays?

So today Greg Koch is in town, for a Stone event at Pogue Mahone on Bay St. Seems like an odd place for a Stone event - but maybe that's an indication of where the beer scene is nowadays, where Greg comes to town and is at Pogue Mahone, and it seems like nobody is talking about it. I wanted to ask -...

Re: Goose Island Brewhouse - Opening July 17

Bier Markt was one of the original adopters of a good beer approach, that's for sure. I remember being at the Toronto Beer Fest one year and being handed a card saying a new place was soft-opening that night and if we wanted to stop by for some free food. In the pre-social media days, knowing about ...

Thin Man Brewery 1st Anniversary - June 17

I was in Buffalo this week and went to Thin Man for the first time. Very nice place and lots of thanks to Mike for showing me around. While I was there he mentioned his 1st anniversary party coming up on the 17th. They're going to close the street down in front of the pub & sounds like a great t...

Re: Ratebeer Sells stake to ABInBev

I forgot to disclose that I sold Bar Towel to Steelback 10 years ago :)

Kind of an embarrassing situation as it seems that they made the announcement only after they were found out through 3rd party reporting.

Re: Craft Brewer's Conference

Thanks for the recap! This year I missed it for the first time in a while and it sounds like DC has improved quite a bit from a beer perspective from the last time the CBC was there.

Anyone planning on hitting the Homebrew Conference in Minneapolis next month?

Re: Craft Brewers Conference 2015 - Portland, Oregon

You probably won't find places closed to the public. They will be busy, however, as the bars in DC aren't very large. Last time the CBC was in DC most of the top beer places were pretty jammed. But it was a lot of fun with industry people everywhere.
