Re: General LCBO Debate & Discussion Thread

Boned on the Pappy sweepstakes again. Sigh. you should be happy ... pappy ain't what it used to be $480 is alot of money for liquefied wood (which is what 23 year old straight Bourbon tastes like) ...and I bet you'd enjoy 10 bottles of (overpriced) Bellwoods Skeleton Key's* more than a single bottl...

Re: Bellwoods Brewery

Hafis was Dead at 12:15. I’m guessing the SK variants last a bit I'm guessing the $17 price tag had something to do with it. That certainly was for me to stay away. BOYD was $14 and even that was too much for me. I tried a few of Bellwoods stuff and although I thought they were decent, I deemed the...

Re: Stalwart Brewing beer removed by LCBO after one day on sale

I could understand if this was pulled from grocery store distribution*, but from stores that sell nothing but liquor? :roll: (*argument could be made that someone might believe it could have medicinal properties when the pharmacy next to the beer aisle has bottles with similar logos - the rx/snake t...

Re: Nickel Brook Brewing

So any thoughts on the Kentucky and Cuvee this year? Just one irrelevant opinion here: - I like the direction they took on the bottle size (even better would have been the Founders 355ml option), but - When a startup brewery (Rouge River) can sell a barrel aged RIS for $1 less than an established o...

Re: What're you drinking right now?

2017 St-Ambroise Stout Impériale Russe (Bourbon Oak aged RIS) This is a good Impy, the hops are still a bit grassy and the wood is lightly astringent. The most recent St. Amby RIS I opened before this was 7.5 years old and ageing into a real beauty. It can therefore use time to integrate. Worth hid...

None has made it my way.

order online & deliver to local store (free)
11 cans will put you over the $50 order minimum (or combine with other stuff you can't get locally)

Re: LCBO Winter Release 2017

Speaking of.....I've been keeping it under my hat for a while, but their pricing is fucked. For instance, BTP pink fuzz is listed on the shelf at 3.50, rings in at 3.01. I'm not sure what the standard lcbo price for this is, but I assume probably more than 3.01. CA ransack the universe shelf price ...

LCBO is only interested in co-op advertising (ie the producer/agent pays for the promotion) :wink:

Re: A Night with Hill Farmstead & Radical Road

Yeah, I assumed the latter as well...and it doesn't bother me at all. Not too familiar with the finer points of Ontario booze laws but someone pointed out earlier today on twiter that the latter practice is illegal - i.e. they cannot sell bottles they "brought back" from a trip to another...

Re: A Night with Hill Farmstead & Radical Road

Strange event. I wonder if this is actually sanctioned by Hill Farmstead, or if RR is simply selling pours of bottles it bought. I would hope the former, but it just seems so odd. Ren This suggest the latter: We brought bac k a very limited amount of highly sought-after beers to include in our tast...

Re: Coming Soon to the LCBO

that Breakfast Stout label seems a bit off...

... oh, yeah, its Ontario ... wouldn't want to advertise beer in baby's porridge instead of milk. Might upset the dairy board ...

but its ok for Nickelbrook to objectify women to sell beer ...

Re: Coming Soon to the LCBO

If there’s a bottle limit at Summerhill then why wouldn’t there be a bottle limit online? Has this been confirmed? Or are you just assuming that the LCBO will for some reason have the good sense to set a limit (like the brewery itself did)? Not trying to be rude; I honestly didn't see any limit men...
