Obviously Canadian beer laws are more bizarre here in Ontario than even what you might find in Pennsylvania. It doesnít look like they sell anything above 8% and the only place you can buy it is at a government owned store which means the staff know next to nothing and they do things no sane beer person would ever do like store seasonals by the window. The selection is equivalent to what youíd find at any halfway decent American grocery store. If this is one of the best places for craft beer in a town of 700,000 then Iím surprised we havenít seen more Canadians emigrate away.

For Ontario standards, this is a fantastic place to buy beer. Over the past couple of years itís been a short bus-ride away from me, and so Iíve been relying on it for many of the beers youíll find on my profile. I have even gotten to know some of the employees and have grown an emotional attachment to the place!

This is surprisingly one of the best LCBOís Iíve ever found, for beer lovers. It has all of the seasonal stuff and all the hard to locate stuff like Denisonís or so on. Itís a far drive from me here in Brampton, but worth it because they carry all the stuff I canít get otherwise in this city. ALL of the new summer releases were there, from what I could tell. Only negative is small fridge room, so most of your beer will be warm.
