Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Molson's is great, represent. For imports, the liquor store across the street has 6-packs of Bavaria tallies for 12 bucks. Good quality/value imo. If this price seems wack to the Americans, keep in mind that our Ontario government rules over all liquor sales (beer, wine and spirits) and only allows the breweries to collectively operate a "beer only" store.

Therefore there is no competition with regards to pricing on wine, spirits and for the most part beer, and as a result we all get hosed on the prices. For example, 1 tallie of Molson Canadian costs $2.10. A case of 24 bottles of Molson Canadian costs $38.95 including deposit. And that's IN CANADA. HOSED.

Anyone else like Rum with fresh lime juice and a splash of 7-up?

You also forgot to mention that the LCBO and Beer Store are useless when it comes to stocking and selection. Speaking in terms of craft beer.

$40 for a 24 of Molson IN Canada? That is puzzling.

Yeah, but my point is some marketing claims are absurd. You and me both said it in our second points.

wow! 24oz cans are $1.45US here ($1.50CAD today) in central NY.

and in other news, the local distributor is -backordered- on PBR.

Don't get me started.

The LCBO isprohibition. As the second biggest buyer of wine and spirits in the world (after Wal-Mart) they simply don't give a flying fart about the little guys, or selling for a reasonable price. I read the in the paper today about the LCBO's sales in spirits going up this year. In VODKA ALONE they sold over $430 million in 12 months. That's a lot of vodka. It breaks down like this (my wife graduated a wine-making program, and I absorbed this)

A small brewery or winery can't really argue with the ONLY retailer in the province. So if a winery approaches the LCBO for a stocking, the LCBO will TELL THE WINERY how much the bottle will cost. There is some negotiation, but how can you haggle with the only gig in town? Oh, and you can't sell your wine for a different price on your winery premises either. Then, if your product doesn't sell, the LCBO marks it down on "sale". The winery pays the difference in price on EACH bottle.

I'm currently working my way through a six pack of Red Baron. Most of the time I drink water and if I'm on a long ride I'll throw a nuun tab in one of the bottles.

Been drinking a lot of IPAs lately, this was just not my thing, probably won't buy again, but 4x16oz cans while being stuck inside on a nice day (long story) gets the job done. First Surly beer that didn't give me a "damn, this is killer brew" reaction. Still better than swill.
