Re: Coming Soon to the LCBO

So you take one sour employee's word (who was fired I guess and plays the typical race card because if you're not white you can't be canned) over the brewery? Like everyone that worked there was racist? Give me a break. Guilty until proven innocent in the beer world now too I guess. Or maybe there ...

Re: Coming Soon to the LCBO

CBS comin to LCBO in December in 355ml bottles priced around $9 - as per LCBO. 355? Is that a typo? No, Canada gets 12 oz bottles. Prefer the 12oz bottles, especially for high octane beer. However, given the recent employment/equity "issues" Founders have been mired in, think I'll pass on...

Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

On that note, bottled early August. Not bad for initial release of a California product. nearly 2 months old eh? yeah, "not bad" for an LCBO release but not fresh enough for an IPA. Learned a huge lesson in early August from visits to Tree House and Trillium. I bought a few super fresh IP...

Sierra Nevada Trip in the Woods barrel aged Maple Scotch Ale 750ml 9.8%abv $19.45 Nineteen bucks, though :o ... think I'll pass on this one Oh it's worth every cent. If it were in 3 x 250 ml bottles would each be worth $6-7, definitely. The aromas and the substantial body of this beer make it worth...

Re: Online Brewery sales

I've ordered from: Dominion City, Sawdust City, and Blood Brothers. All did a good job. I only have two issues ordering direct from breweries: 1. Delivery costs add ~buck-a-beer :wink: :wink: (or more if you don't get a full case) ... to already premium priced (i.e. expensive craft) beer. 2. Stale b...

Re: Witchstock 2018

If you pay $120 to go to this event and you feel you got your money's worth, then you got your money's worth. I can't see myself feeling that way though. Most I can drink in 3 hours is 6 pints - maybe. That's $20 a pint. Yes,l there's great/rare beer but I can pop over to Lewiston and get 15-20 can...

Re: Expiry Dates

I can't think of any other Ontario crafts without some form of date code. LOL Plenty of Ontario crafts WITHOUT any form of date codes... The most loved of them all - Bellwoods - doesn't use date codes!!!! Others I've had of late without dates: 5 Paddles, Little Beasts Brewing, Town Brewery, Blood B...
