Just added Driftwoods Blackstone porter to the draught list. we are the only place that has it on tap. Come have one, you dont know what your missing.
Also just ordered some more Dr Funk from phillips. so our seasonal line is either that or accusation ale.

Offsales fridge is always stocked with great local beer as well if your downtonw and need to grab a bottle or 6pk.

Ah, yes, Clive's is the former Victoria Janes in the Chateau Victoria lobby. I've never been.

Christie's has Whistler Winter Dunkel on right now. It uses Whistler Chocolate Company chocolate in it. It's essentially a chocolate dunkelweizen.

Looks like a good list. The variety of local beers (especially when on tap) is one of my favourite things about living out here. We didn't have that in Ontario.

Just a note though - it's Hermann's, not Hermmans.

I like to treat myself to a Guinness once in a while. What's the best local alternative?

I'm partial to Lighthouse Keeper's Stout, meself. Appears to be at Garricks Head and Crossroads, according to earlier posts. I'm sure I've seen it at other places as well, but can't remember off the top of my head.

Went in with some friends tonight to try it and the server said you were sold out. Any idea when you might be restocking?
