So much for the Toronto Star's commitment to internationalism in beer retailing matters. You will recall that in April they made the madcap decision to expand their noting where you can get beers featured in Josh Rubin's column to include an outlet in New York as illustrated in my post from then. No longer. The heading on the side bar is now limited to outlets in Toronto as you can see above from Josh's piece on beer in Quebec. Never mind that eastern Ontarians would easily slip across the border to La Belle Province. Never mind that many Quebec beers can be found in western NY including a number of Unibroue beers not available in Ontario. Never mind. Learn your place. Keep in line.
Have you read The Unbearable Nonsense of Craft Beer - A Rant in Nine Acts by Alan and Max yet? It's out on Kindle as well as Lulu.
Maureen Ogle said this about the book: "... immensely readable, sometimes slightly surreal rumination on beer in general and craft beer in particular. Funny, witty, but most important: Smart. The beer geeks will likely get all cranky about it, but Alan and Max are the masters of cranky..."
