Re: Rouge River

Is this place worth stopping at on a trip heading north (going right by there on the 407), or should I just wait to stop at Redline like I normally do? If you enjoy hoppy pale ales, IPAs, and fruity sours (not a fan myself but others rave about them), they are worth a stop. Just today they released...

Well, its early May now.

"Be in the LCBO" (warehouse system) and "be in LCBO stores" are two completely different things :-?

Re: Uncorked-Wine and Spirits Appreciation

Going up in price, Blanton's "The Original single barrel bourbon" ($70) is a must try Less than 1/4 left in my bottle yet lcbo only shows a single bottle in the system. Anyone know if this is returning? It’s a great pour. I think you're talking about the one with the green label (40%). Th...

Re: Muddy York Brewing

...So you have lots and lots of these barrels that had bourbon in them for less than a year, that the bourbon makers can't reuse... You are correct that barrels can only be used once for Bourbon (and rye). However, the vast majority of American whisky is aged much more than one year. In order to be...

Re: Nickel Brook - Kentucky Bastard Review

Haven't looked closely at their products lately but the KB & winey bastard I bought (2015) had a tag hung on the neck with a diagram and instructions. I thought they also started printing a little blurb on the back label now. Anyway, sarcasm aside ... sliding into internet mansplaining mode ... ...

Re: Uncorked-Wine and Spirits Appreciation

Buffalo Trace, at just over $40, is a solid value in an everyday bourbon. Knob Creek Single Barrel (provided you get a good barrel!), is a bargain at $58. Any other bourbon ‘steals’ at the lcbo in your opinions? Four Roses Small Batch ($41) Four Roses Single Barrel ($48) Elijah Craig at $48 may be ...

Re: Pilsner Urquell canned two days ago?

Hoping someone can explain how this is possible. ...then I noticed one in the back had a production date of 01 30 18" and expiry of 09 30 18. Is it even possible that this was actually canned 2 days ago in Czech then on the shelves here? Looking for a little knowledge on the brewery. I don't k...

Re: Who needs Pinot Noir to make a stew

Abbaye de Rocs is listed now. At $6.15 for a 750ml... At that price I will pick some more up, but 330 mL is a better serving size. ...Large bottles of bottle-conditioned BSAs may have a longer cycle of cellar development. And at that price a bottle I can still justify opening one any time, if it is...

Re: LCBO Winter Release 2017

Abbaye de Rocs is listed now. At $6.15 for a 750ml bottle of 9% imported Belgian beer, rated 100 on ratebeer, has to be one of the best lcbo values of all time The LCBO prices on Belgian beer are insane. another one listed yesterday: 9 bucks for Abbaye du val dieu grand cru I'm starting to question...

Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

Surprised about the reaction to the Modern Times pale ale. I tried that and the gose last night and was absolutely in love with both. Yeah, based on the recent comments I was expecting the worst but decided to buy one each of the stout and pale w ale anyway. Though the ale is 3 months old IMO, it s...

Re: Pilsner Urquell canned two days ago?

I've only ever seen the expiry date. Are both dates on the packaging, or are you calculating back the 01 30 18 based on the expiry? From what I've read*, In this case 09 30 18 would imply a 12 30 17 packaging date (add 3 to the months, subtract one from the year - i.e. 9 month shelf life) *I'm no ex...
