Have they fixed their pricing? I went in shortly after they opened and they were essentially charging full-pint prices for half-pint servings. Which was a shame, because otherwise I liked the place.

Nope, not fixed. I skipped a birthday party here recently because I just couldn't bring myself to pay $8-$10 for 10-12 oz pours.

They featured two five-dollar Tuesday pours, but as you say small. I find that a bit odd if it's not a DIPA or something, beers you would session don't really warrant a teensy stem glass.

Comrade has cheap happy hour pints or at least they did. All I see in Ontario are price leaps, holy cow the LCBO wines that have gone up 40-80% since not long ago. Systematically cancelling out the net worth of working folks, I suppose. The sellers aren't taking any of the hit of currency adjustments, far for it.

There was a limited amount of Dreamsicle and a bit of Ceres when I was in on Friday. More is scheduled for production as well.

I could waste a fine afternoon with glasses of Cucumber Gose. It really was true Leipziger in style.

I know that this was discussed before but they have finally committed to making the old Burlington location into the Funk Lab. I think that's great for the company.

Kentucky Bastard goes on sale tomorrow in the bottle shop at 11am. It should hit the LCBO sometime next week, according to Facebook.

This year it's a whopping 14.5%!

They don't have any list online about what they have at the bottle shop currently, do they? I'm thinking of making a trip out but would rather go when I know they have some really good stuff.

Also, is the better location to visit the burlington location if I'm more interested in sour beers? And the hamilton one just has the core lineup?

I've never noticed any kind of live beer list on their website. Facebook or Twitter would be your best bet. Each time that i've gone in they seem to have 10+ beers available.

It's coming on the new website, but for now check social media or call Burlington. And don't go to Hamilton, no Nickel Brook sold there at all (yet...)

Malevolent will be available again Saturday (Feb 25) according to Canadian Beer News.

Mmmmmmmm.!

Also according to CBN, they will be releasing Higher Dimension Belgian Amber, with some of the proceeds being donated to support refugee relief.

Just out of curiosity but does nicklebrook have any programs where they support our own vets or homeless canadian citizens?

We already live in the greatest place on earth.

It's a legit question. I'm not questioning. I'm just asking a question.
