Hear, hear! Happy Holidays all!

Interesting about the bottles being back in stock, I guess they are cancelled orders?

Re: Goose Island Black Friday 2021

In the past, I seem to recall there being a $50 limit when ordeirng to be shipping to store. So I pre-stashed a couple of other bottles in my cart to get over that limit. Went to check out and was told that the availability of one of my items had changed. I was sure I missed out, but turns out it wa...

Re: Vancouver Updates

I'll be in Vancouver early November, so I'll be sure to update this thread. Superflux is on my radar, but apart from that I don't know too much about Vancouver breweries (apart from the big ones). I also think we'll be in North Van most of the time, just a quick trip to visit family. Curious if any...

Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

Looks like Westmalle Tripel is back! I was pleasantly surprised to see it on the shelves of the Front & Spadina LCBO when I popped in on Friday evening after work.

It was just okay. Would not buy again
I went the other way - grabbed a couple to start and then a few more after trying one and enjoying it. It's not quite Westmalle level, but I liked it more than La Trappe and Chimay Wit.

Re: Thirsty & Miserable

Also - and this is very much unofficial - but I have heard that T&M may one day re-open in Hamilton! I popped in late on a weekday in November when I was in the area for what turned out to be my last "real" visit. The bartender mentioned that Katie bought a place in the Hamilton area a...

Re: Thirsty & Miserable

Sad to see that T&M didn’t get to have the blowout end of year celebrations that they had planned. A buddy and I were going to try and get there if they stayed open that last week of the year, but it seemed like staff COVID ended that. It was a fun spot and will be remembered! Without much noti...

Re: Are you travelling for beer again?

Yes, definitely travelling again. I am tired of living in fear of the virus and have really felt like this thing is over ever since I got my second jab over the summer. I've been out to Vancouver a couple of times, NYC and San Francisco. I'll share some of my recommendations in the travel forum when...

Re: Alcohol regulation changes

All good changes. I didn't even realize that some of these rules exist. No liquor infusions? There are definitely some cocktail bars that are doing this already. Unless the rule only stipulates that you can't serve modified liquors straight up, but there is no prohibition on using them in drinks. An...

Re: What to do with the Bar Towel Forums?

Also late to the party, but +1 for keeping the Bar Towel Forum distinct from social media and for making changes at the margins rather than overhauling. I'm a fan of the current format and discourse. Historically, I've found the threads detailing upcoming LCBO seasonal releases and providing travel ...
