Aiming to try a beer from every Ontario brewery by the end of the year. Officially I set the cut off for breweries open prior to January 1, 2018 but I'm still trying the new ones too where I can. Anyone have any of these to trade or able to get some? IP Toronto preferred but wiling to do mail trades for some of the farther ones. Cheers!

I should be able to help you out with Stonepicker. I live nearby and have been planning to go there in the near future. Unfortunately I can't do an IP trade so it'd have to be via mail.

So I am a masochist and I am once again trying to get a beer from every Ontario brewery. :D They keep opening new breweries and there are currently 47 that I have not tried (not counting contract breweries).

Anyone able to connect me with some of these, or point me to where I can find them? Cheers!

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

Looks like Fenelon Falls is available at the Summerhill LCBO.

762 is near my family cottage and I've had some. They've got some work to do. I can pick you up one next time I'm there, but that won't be until springtime now.

Thanks Cass! 762 would be helpful. It is a bit of a tough one in that it's just far enough from other things that it makes it inconvenient to be an easy side trip to other breweries on my list. (Roughly 90 minute return trip from the 401 for example.) Maybe a special trip there with stops for Maple Dale and Ivanhoe cheese? :)

Fenelon Falls is one I have been kicking myself over as I literally had it in my hands several times at the LCBO and didn't get it because I was usually walking and made other choices based on weight and backpack room :)

Sparrow is getting closer to reopening, not sure how wide their distribution will be but they will at least be available

Cambridge is close enough I will probably end up making the drive up at some point. Had planned to stop in in September on the way to a camping trip but they weren't brewing at the time.

I managed to check several breweries off of my list only to add almost as many new breweries to it! :D

I have checked off a ton of breweries but it seems like I have added almost as many new ones to the list! Down to 35. I have plans to visit a lot of the outstanding ones. The far north ones are going to be a challenge.

I'll most likely be stopping in to Whiskeyjack as I'm staying in that town for an evening, but that isn't till late August and even then the beer would be in Elmira(Waterloo) that you'd have to pick up.

Cheers! Ottawa is about as far North as I currently plan on getting this summer so I doubt I will be able to get it myself. Elmira is a lot closer lol :)
