Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

Bellwoods Brewery Jutsu 473 mL can | LCBO#: 16051 $4.50 Is it just me or is $4.50/can for a 5.6% ABV pale ale a little crazy. I know Bellwoods has always been a bit pricier, and in the past I saw the value, but I thought since expanding and introducing a canning line they'd be able to bring their p...

funny how untappd entries have this at >12% yet the LCBO edition (brewed under license in Toronto?) is listed at 11.5% ... probably for tax reasons, lol

Re: What're you drinking right now?

Yeti, which just hit the shelves of my local today. This is, IMO, a truly world class Imperial Stout. I picked up eight, two for now and a half dozen to sit for a while. is your "local" Summerhill? I saw yeti in their beer walk-in fridge (north end of store) a few weeks back but haven't s...

Re: That Boutique-Y Whisky Company Whisky Holiday Calendar 2019

Halfway through the set, very disappointing thus far This type of tasting set should showcase a variety of distilleries AND flavour profiles. So far, the variety of distilleries is there but the 8 single malts are virtually indistinguishable from a smell/taste perspective. All from fairly tired ex-b...

Re: That Boutique-Y Whisky Company Whisky Holiday Calendar 2019

Looks like these Calendars are gone-gone. Went from on-sale overstock to unlisted. I don't understand the logic of a) long sold out items remaining on product searches for months, or b) items on store shelves nowhere to be found BUT can confirm the holiday whisky calendar is very much still availab...

Re: Dogfish DIPAs

or this? Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA LCBO is putting it through their trademarked cellaring program to ensure the vintage reaches peak flavour :wink: Although this ale does stand up to some careless ageing, and it would still be nice to get it late I have some doubts we'll see it. The one time I had...

if you're so inclined, check out my "tasting notes" here Wow, it's really encouraging so far! ;-) Still I feel compelled to give it the old 'college try' to begin to educate my palate in an extremely low financial / volume commitment scenario. This will be cool... Cheers. I specifically p...

Re: That Boutique-Y Whisky Company Whisky Holiday Calendar 2019

It was £150 in UK yes, but if the LCBO set was the same as in the UK it wouldn't have to be marked down 50%. 11 of the 24 whiskies in the UK set are older than 12 years, only one of the LCBO set is older than 12 (a cheap grain whisky) so, while age isn't necessarily an indication of quality, most w...

As predicted, though a few weeks ahead of when I thought they would do it, the set is now 30% off: $139.95 (Still >2000 available, no need to rush, they'll probably discount again) me thinks they overbought & overpriced this one ANNNND ... proof LCBO bought too many/released them too close to f...

LCBO website still gives me a "not available at any stores" message ... LCBO, being LCBO click on the "buy in-store (unavailable)" button with the red X, then click on "check all stores" you should see a list of stores with quantities quite often it looks like nothing ...
