A bunch of that Boxing Rock was us as well as the Bruery. I put a couple of the Saule’s down. Really bummed Brew Vault has been abandoned by the developers, now I need to go through my whole cellar and find a new app. Guessing I’m getting close to 900 bottles it’sgoing To take awhile. Damn!

While no one was paying attention (well, I wasn't paying attention) they have restocked the Collective Arts stock including

Prophets & Nomads Gose
Stranger than Fiction Porter
State of Mind Session IPA
Saint of Circumstance Blonde
Rhyme & reason Extra Pale Ale
plus you can always get
Ransack the Universe IPA which is excellent
and a stray Sour Harvest Saison, but why would you?

And for some reason, Labatt 50 in 12-pack bottles and 8-pack cans. Who's sitting around thinking "You know what I miss? Labatt 50."

Your best bet this time of year? Buy a four pack of Peche Mortel and drink one. Maybe two.

That's quite the jump in price from Beer and Kildevil to Strout River... $7.99 to $11.99

Wow! Those White Pony beer didn't last long. Went to Howley over lunch break and the guy said they went like wild fire. Likely all bought by 1 or 2 people, he thinks. Was hoping to get some of the Oracle.

Really looking forward to trying the "Western" beer. Read the beer descriptions on their website and they sound like terrific beer.

There was Oracle left on Monday I think, so they lasted a little longer than I expected.

But honestly the Oracle wasn't that good. Strongest than Ever is pretty good for a stupidly strong beer. I didn't crack my bottle of "Troubles" yet.

Metro NLCs are going to start receiving the Western Newfoundland Brewing beers tomorrow. The larger outlets are getting limited stock (for now...might become permanent in future).

I guess I need to go looking for Western the next time I’m in town.

There would have been a bunch more CBA beers on the shelf if the NLC hadn’t screwed us in more ways than one.

That played a large part in us not doing a CBA for 2018. It’s pretty painful looking at multiple thousands of $$ sitting idle when you know there are people, restaurants and bars desperately wanting to buy it.

It all comes back to petty beuracracy from the NLC.

I think I am done with playing nice and keeping my opinions to myself. It might sink the club but dammit the NLC plays a shit game, especially when you have to play operations against regulatory. Those guys pretty much only see in black and white.

That being said the Reg boys did cut us a break at the CBA. Thanks Ryan.

Go pour yourself a beer, I just paid for mine again as it was CBA inventory.
