Re: Muddy York Brewing

Tooth and Nail has a very good one too. Not as easy to come across in the GTA I suppose, but it was on tap somewhere in December -- BeerBistro, perhaps?

Re: Beer in Grocery Stores

Exactly. At the Hoggs Hollow Loblaws (since we seem to be creating a mini-database of local grocery stores here) I can't think of any beer they carry that isn't available at one of the better-than-average LCBO's within a km. or so on Avenue, at Bayview Village, etc. They seem to have lots of shelf s...

Re: Town Brewery

I liked Brock St's take on marzenbier this fall though (Brocktoberfest), even if the name is not very original (i.e. Black Oak Oaktoberfest).

Re: Uncorked-Wine and Spirits Appreciation

Do you recall the price? LiCBO web site says "price pending", for some reason.

Re: LCBO Autumn, Halloween and Ontario Craft Beers 2018 Release

Yeah I agree. I like pumpkin beers that go light on the spices. GR Highballer has always been my favourite. Will have to see if it is still up to scratch. Also generally like GLB's rendition.

Re: LCBO Autumn and Halloween 2018 Release

Nice! That is a lot of Ontario beer. To manage, I plan to concentrate on the Festbiers/Marzens, which I always look forward to once the leaves start to turn. And, of course, GLB and GR Highballer Pumpkin ales, once a year while passing out candy on Oct 31. C'mon pumpkin haters! It's just once a year...

Re: Witchstock 2018

All good points. A big pet peeve of mine are those ridiculous miniature Nonic "pint" glasses that are really only 14 ounces or so. Do they think I am an idiot and am going to be fooled somehow? Very insulting to our intelligence. I was quite disappointed when otherwise top flight beer bars...

Re: LCBO Autumn 2018 Release

Is there the usual Hallowe'en release too? Some local Marzens, I hope.

Re: Grand River Brewing

Was true, historically, but I'm pretty sure I saw their stuff in standalone cans last time I was returning empties at TBS. Didn't buy any.

Re: Ottawa and area help

A little bump to this thread to ask if there is anything new and noteworthy? May have part of an evening, and perhaps a Saturday afternoon, free in Ottawa, likely the west end. I notice that some of the top places, such as Lupulus and Wellington, don't even seem to be open on Saturday afternoons! Od...

Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

Thanks. Will keep my eyes peeled for that - one loves Jutsu. Funny, but BTP seems to be one of the mainstays of my Loblaws here in the middle of Toronto, even though it originates in Ottawa of course. The mysteries of our beer distribution I guess ...

Re: Picton and Prince Edward Co.

That is excellent, thank you. Thinking of going for a couple of days so appreciate you diverging from just beer into restaurants, etc. Any other tips gladly received.
