    Buck a Beer

    On our way to the cottage last Friday for the long weekend, I stopped at the Liquor Store in Beardmore Ontario and I came across No Name Brand Beer for a buck a bottle (plus 10 cents deposit for each bottle) so I picked up a couple of six packs to give it a try.

    I put the beer in the fridge when we got to camp. The next day my neighbor down the lake came over for a visit and we gave the No Name Buck a Beer a test drive.

    It is darn good beer, nothing wrong with it at all. Reminds me of when we used to order glasses of draft on tap in local bars in the younger years. I even tested a few bottles sitting in my wood fired hot tub just to make sure it was up to par.

    Funny when the Liberals are in power in Ontario the price of good beer goes up, when Conservative's are in power the price of good beer goes down, Thanks Doug Ford.

    Beer should not be regulated in price. Let the free market prevail.

    Government controls the liquor here. They don't even try to hide it under a 'beer store' name.

    I've been looking for that beer for a while. Limited quantities & not available at all LCBOs. Trying to kill Ford's mojo.

    I really enjoy it. But the politics of slashing "sin" taxes when we're on the verge of bankruptcy is suicide.



    They brew a single batch, so it's always really "fresh".
    And yet, after nearly 10 years of government by Stephen Harper and his anti-choice army, you can still get an abortion in Canada. At this point, the political right’s agenda is so well hidden Sherlock Holmes couldn’t find it with a Huawei P30 powered by a trillion Watsons.

    We need to stop splurging in government instead of taxing everything. Tax is not the answer. Accountability is.
