Re: Zwanze

What a time for beer in Toronto when I could just stroll into Volo yesterday at 7pm and walk up to the bar and order a Zwanze. Didn't need to worry about a ticket, didn't need to deal with lineups. And there was 20 more things I wanted to try but only wanted to do a quick stop. We're so flush with g...

Re: Golden Tap Awards 2017

I was really happy with the spread of winners across the province. Merit is an awesome spot and I've been there are couple of times. I haven't been to Arabella but obviously have to make a trip soon. I don't think V&V is a surprising win - I think many brewers prefer the classic, drinkable style...

Brewed in Toronto?


Same thing with Omnipollo I believe. That's the Craft Brand Co. guys - they're contract brewing their repped brands locally at their own brewery.

Changes to LCBO E-Commerce

Some interesting changes to the LCBO E-Commerce program:

- They will begin allowing single bottle orders, not exclusively full cases.

- Agents will be able to assemble mixed cases of their portfolios for sale through e-commerce.

Re: Goose Island Brewhouse - Opening July 17

It is a bit odd considering they actually have a PR agency, and they're not providing much info through that channel, and the only dedicated social channel that I can see for Toronto is Instagram. However, I can report that it is open and they have 9 beers on tap made in-house, plus three of Goose's...

Heading to Seattle in a week and a bit for a couple of days. Anyone been out there recently?

Will search on the usual sites for ideas but thought I'd ask the group here too.

Re: Buffalo NY - what to see and explore?

Here's my podcast with Mike: http://www.bartowel.com/chatting-buffalo-beer-mike-shatzel/ It was great to chat with him and learn about his own personal beer history and reminisce about the changing beer times both here and in Buffalo. It's funny how times change - we don't really need to go to Buffa...
