Ya, DT is widely available on tap and at the beer store....I'll grab a pint now and then. I do miss the days of "secretly buying it" at the LCBO though.
The only thing I ever buy at the beer store is Trois Pistoles. (Or, possibly now Maudite, since its not at the LCBO anymore either)

Regardless of availability DT is still a good beer and I was glad this morning when my wife messaged me to tell me her LCBO store picked it up. :)

Saw some fat tug at the lcbo today that had no date on it. The last batch was clearly labelled..

How long has TBS had the Smuttynose Finestkind? Just spotted today, when getting a bunch of Delerium.
Also, it's good to see Trois Pistoles back.

I'd say it is going on a couple of months now of Smuttynose IPA @ TBS. I believe it is being carried at the vast majority of the self serve stores.

True, closest stores either Guelph or Woodstock, who have been restocked several times. I mentioned it before Christmas to a guy at James and Fennel, who said he was a fan and would look into getting some but that's the last I heard.

I phoned TBS HQ and the CSR said, after I asked "Why no Hamilton?", "That's what the brewery wanted!"

I did get some from the Guelph store and to be truthful wasn't blown away. I may have to re-visit and get some fresher stuff.

Wait, what? Smuttynose does not want their beer sold in Hamilton?

As a one-time resident of Hamilton, I enjoy a good joke at the city's expense as much as the next guy, but this is a bit of a head scratcher even if only partly true.

I'm not blown away either by it. But hey, it's a relatively complex (esp. at warmer temps) if a bit muddled in taste and still blows away 99% of TBS' offerings.

So the case for these non marked bottles says Feb 10th. Pretty fresh I guess.
