Fine Balance should be available at Volo's bottle shops, or 4th and 7 (and likely other places).

Re: red tape in New Brunswick

Here is a good news story on Canadian Beer News about red tape being peeled off, albeit in a pilot program. This would be great in Ontario.

Re: Rorschach Brewing

After picking up a couple of cans from an eastern Ontario brewery labeled as a "Juicy" IPA in May a couple years ago only to realise after I'd started drinking that the cans they gave me from the fridge in their bottle shop were canned in the *September* I realised that not all breweries o...

Re: Sexism in beer labels in Ontario

Anyone who thought the Naughty Neighbour or Immodest labels were sexist is the softest millennial do-gooder there is. Nickel Brook wimped out big time on that one and the new cans are try-hard and look horrendous as fuck. I haven't seen or heard any women complain. Just dudes that are trying so har...

Re: Sexism in beer labels in Ontario

Shit, you paint women as so fucking weak. It's not a rape scene being played out on a beer can. No wonder 'feminists' and lefties are starting to eat themselves alive. It's the insanity. Women who make their own decisions and choices with what they do/how they show their body or their sexuality sho...

Re: Nickel Brook Brewing

Given the historic (and current) imbalances of power that often exist, on a societal level, between men and women, there's a difference and while it's easy to make the comparison as has been done, it's not particularly accurate nor equal. I don't mean to be rude but you're basically attempting to j...

Re: Nickel Brook Brewing

Here’s what I wrote last May (so more than a few months, lol). Everything I wrote still stands. Not to purposefully change the subject (go ahead and continue to bash the Naughty Neighbour can) but what do people think of the GLB Dad Body can? At first I thought it was funny and the antidote to the ...

Yeah, the Over My Dad Body/Naughty Neighbour and Immodest comparison made to much sense.
Nah, it was a dumb comparison.

Re: Sexism in beer labels in Ontario

Perhaps all those who wanted the scantily clad women removed from the labels will support them now... Maybe they will! Or maybe just go off to protest something else? I don't think Leftist SJWs necessarily put their money where their mouth is. . They don't, because they don't have any, because they...

Re: Picton and Prince Edward Co.

In general, beer isn't the focus of the County, but it's slowly starting to find a toehold there. There might not be a nicer area at an Ontario brewery than Parsons Brewing Company, which is just east of Picton along Highway 49. A quick bike ride, if you're so inclined, but also not the worst walk f...

Re: Who's selling 355ml cans?

Eastbound Brewing on Queen East sells exclusively 355s, and Rainhard sells a couple of its beers (Armed and Citra and their pilsner, maybe more?) in that size (though none currently available). If you've got a bit of time before leaving and are willing to pay a bit more, would certainly recommend pu...

I presume that there's still going to be a wider rollout of the Founders Breakfast Stout and Backwoods Bastard in Toronto stores?

Anyone know if/when the Ossington brewpub will be pouring this year's BOYD? Always fun to compare keg and bottle variants. They were pouring it last night. At Ossington? I don't see it listed as pouring at Ossington on their website. I know Hafis has it pouring, but I'm a downtown dweller and defin...
