Decided to give a try to mill street mixed ales 6 pack and really enjoyed them. Definately recomend spring thaw maple ale for someone who haven't aquired a taste for ale's yet, it will help to ease your way in to the dark side

apparently beer too

TORONTO – Consumers will soon have more choices to buy liquor products in Ontario.

The Liberal government announced Tuesday plans to open LCBO Express kiosks in grocery stores across the province.

The smaller stores will carry a range of beer, wine and liquor including craft beer and VQA wines.

A government press release says the express kiosks are part of “modernizing” Ontario’s liquor laws.

“These new Express stores are a way to balance that convenience with social responsibility while further supporting our local industries,” finance minister Charles Sousa said in a press release Tuesday.

Alcohol sales in Ontario in 2012-2013 were valued at approximately $10 billion.

The province started experimenting with the idea last year with a pilot project in 10 grocery stores.

We will have more choices of where to buy, not what to buy. The fees craft brewers are charged are ridiculous and prohibitory.

I'll drink Guinness any day of the week.

I love hoppy bears. Flying Monkeys Hoptical Illusion is one of my favs.

Cant stand the Molson/Labatts shit massed produced beers. Gives me a headache.

I'll do Steam Whistle on a hot summer day.

I shop at the Superstore and they have them, Longo's have them and i have seen some at a couple Metro grocery stores. I've also seen wine stores at Walmart near their grocery department.

I should clarify and say SOME grocery stores already have wine stores.

Try Delirium Tremens if you ever get your hands on it. Don't think they sell it at lcbo, but might have it in beer stores.

This is my favourite beer these days. I hadn't heard the term saison before today, but that's the style of beer I'm into.
