Another bourbon offer. https://www.lcbo.com/en/collections/spi ... ayout=card

I'm stocking up on the Weller at 40 bucks a bottle. Terrific bargain.

Totally! Dab at 2.40 a tallboy is a cottage staple for me.

Re: G&M (paywall): Canada’s crowded craft beer industry is tapped out. What brewers say must happen to stay afloat

I think you've nailed it. I've thought about this a bit and I also think there's a pricing thing at play here. If you want a crazy sour or a hazy fruity IPA in name only, you pretty much have to pay craft prices and seek it out from bars or breweries directly. Traditional styles are (mostly) easier ...

Re: G&M (paywall): Canada’s crowded craft beer industry is tapped out. What brewers say must happen to stay afloat

Nice to see some coverage from the Globe, thanks for sharing. People have been warning that the reckoning is coming for the craft scene for a long time now, so I guess I'm not surprised it's finally happening. If anything, it's going a lot slower than I would have thought. It'll be interesting to se...

Re: East Lansing, MI

I dunno, while there certainly are plenty of breweries in industrial areas, most towns of any size in Ontario I can think of include at least a brewery or two downtown.

Re: Stone City Ales in Kingston

It's kinda sad that Stone City went the way it did. They were so good when they first opened, but they never took the next step.

Re: Spearhead Brewing Company

Raxx is a giant pool hall, it claimed to be the biggest in Ontario or something when it first went up like 25 years ago. It's an odd part of town for a brewpub if you're trying to survive as a restaurant. Zero foot traffic. Basically nobody can walk there. But it's down the street from all the box s...

Founders is still in the lCBO. Their Porter came through in volume in the fall, and the all day IPA is pretty much always available.

I suppose that all their remaining swag would be a corporate asset, and thus would be included in the deal. :D

Re: Sourpalooza: hosted by Exchange Brewery, 2022 March 26

I like a good hopped kettle sour, like Jelly King. There are a ton of really one-dimensional kettle sours and fruited kettle sours (which ok, fine, are two-dimensional cuz they taste like fruits) out there these days that don't do much for me. They must be popular though, because pretty much everyon...

A Wellington Helles Yeah! Which is hitting the spot something fierce. I really feel like Wellington have upped their game dramatically over the last few years.
