When I heard you on CBC a few months ago, you got me hooked on trying different beers. You listed five beers and I tried them. Two of the five I liked. But then I tried different beers. Again some I liked, some I didn't. For example what I liked were Hobgoblin (England), Czechvar (Czech Republic) and Estrala (Spain). You mentioned Guiness but I believe Mill Street has a better tasting stout. However here's what really rots me when it comes to the NLC. Take Pabst Blue Ribbon, they sell it as if it was an imported beer and you pay top dollar for it. But when you read the can, you realize it's made in Guelph, Ontario. It's not a true American imported beer like Sam Adams.

I have to disagree with local selection of of craft and imports at the NLC being the widest we have ever seen. The selection is abysmal, the seasonal section has been all but bare for months. Other than the infrequent beer club offerings, I don't think there has been a dozen new beers at the NLC in the past 9 months. The NLC is really behind the eight ball with respect to beer selection or maybe they just don't care
