Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

Get 2 bottles and it’s equal to less than $10 for a 660ml bottle of 12% imp stout, compared to $12 for 500ml of Kentucky bastard. Both equally rated on ratebeer. But this way it’s easier to drink half and still have the other half sealed. Edit: can’t wait to try the lickinghole heir apparent, almos...

Re: One of Canada’s biggest brewing equipment companies in receivership

This is bull#$t. Isn't anybody insured against such an up-front expense? Seems like a ludicrous risk, so where exactly did the money go, and who at the manufacturing co. saw this coming and said nothing? I don't know much about the brewery equipment business but I'd have a hard time putting up $800...

I would have reminded him of Drug Ford's buck-a-beer initiative :lol:

Re: Coming Soon to the LCBO

Another listed, but with no stock yet, that I don't think was on any seasonal release list: Heir Apparant Mexican Spiced Imperial Stout that price can't be right, can it? under 4 bucks for an 11.5% imperial stout? :o puts most of the local beer prices to shame.... BUT given the discrepancy between ...

Re: Uncorked-Wine and Spirits Appreciation

Looking to fill in the Xmas list with a bourbon or two. Something in the $50++ range. Currently enjoy Blantons, Weller and Eagle Rare. Suggestions? Larceny ($50) is a "wheated" bourbon along the lines of Weller Pikesville (pricier at $90) is a rye-heavy bourbon along the lines of Blanton'...

Re: Uncorked-Wine and Spirits Appreciation

But I was curious about this one: http://www.vintages.com/lcbo-ear/vintages/product/details.do?language=EN&itemNumber=618991 Or if you want to go really fancy, there's an Orphan Barrel in the LCBO right now, but it's really pricey. Michters and its "founder" Joseph Magliocco has a sha...

Re: Collective Arts

Flying monkeys chocolate manifesto, for example, used to always be a 750 bottle, but now is in cans. Nope! was at the BO yesterday and, unless the bottles were from last year (difficult to tell with no dates), they are in fact 473ml bottles .

Re: Collective Arts

Is anyone else rather annoyed at some of the special releases being sold in 4-packs only? They sell every other beer as singles so I don't quite understand the justification for only selling them in 4-packs, it certainly doesn't make it easier for the consumer. I know I buy less beer from CA as a r...

Yeah....Halloween week is about the earliest I remember seeing the Xmas stuff out.
