What's that? Like a beer retail store? We only have the government run The Beer Store and LCBO. There are no private sellers of alcohol in Ontario

I still can't get over that. At least the selections look pretty good.

Does anyone know if they have Kona Beer at Kona Grill Restaurants?
I haven't been to our local Kona Grill, but that would be an extra incentive.

That varies by city ordinance in Minnesota. I like the gov-run stores for the most part. They almost never have sales, just consistently good prices.

Do we have any government-run stores Bonnie? I'd have no idea.

Ya I have no problem with the government run stores either. They're all over the place and are always well stocked with a good variety and are clean. Even in recent years, they've started having sales which they never did in the past The only real issue is that once they close for the night, you're pretty much out of luck. .

I currently live in Alberta and there is no shortage of privately-run beer and liquor stores, and some of which close at 2 a.m.

But I'm a Quebec native and I'm used to being able to buy beer and wine at my neighbourhood convenience or grocery store. It just made everything so convenient - bread, milk, and beer all in one location.

This is as good a place as any for a warning. People come to Minnesota and buy beer in our grocery stores and don't think anything of it because they can where they come from. But, our grocery stores are only allowed to sell 3.2 shit--Looks like only 6 states still do that.

(Nevermind that the beer in our grocery stores is mostly shit to begin with)

There's a similar situation in Madison, WI, albeit resulting from corporate motivations rather than governmental ones. The tavern association pressured the government to disallow stores from selling alcohol past 9 PM, of course so that people have to go to bars.

Laz, you should see if your BevMo carries Rauchbier ("Smoked Beer")


Really tasty stuff - when I was still in the bay area I'd pick up a bottle occasionally and always loved it - they make an Urbock and a Marzen - both definitely live up to the "smoked beer" title, but the Marzen was the best.

^I do like Marzen-style beers. Smoked sounds good, too.

I've seen that a few times, but never tried it - I'll have to pick it up next time I see it.

Another good German beer: Spaten Optimator


Dark, roasted malt flavor goodness. And pretty widely available, too.

Got a 500mL bottle of that in my fridge right now.

I was in Texas when I turned 21, so I got used to only having beer in grocery stores.

What a shock when I got back to Indiana and realized that even CVS has a huge supply of beers and liquor.

I think I've gone to a liquor store twice since I've been home.

Breakfast at the pub this morning with a bowl of Irish stew.
I hadn't tried this before and it was very good.
(I don't normally have beer with breakfast! But I made an exception today. )
