    Question Is the beer all gone?!

    Is the beer all gone? Has it been ransacked from the shelves at the Beer Store or LCBO?

    I've been on a hiatus from drinking and haven't been in a while. This weekend was a reward weekend where I would've indulged as I'll be alone for a few days... I don't want to be let down - I rather not go at all.

    Going and finding shelves full of Blue is what I'm afraid of... I'm a whore for craft beer.

    Why do you think it's at the back of my fridge. You can't give it away.

    Even if the government closes basically everything, LCBO will be the very last thing open. They make way too much money from it. We'll drink and dance and screw, because there's nothing else to do.

    If the LCBO closes, I'm going to make moonshine and become a bootlegger.

    I wonder if the winemaking places are doing really well. I remember you could get a big batch for about 3 dollars a bottle.

    The Premier who is well acknowledged to have been a drug dealer when cannabis was illegal and who peddled " a buck a beer" as Premier. He is now the supreme overlord of the LCBO and the OCS. How ironical is that ?? Ford is unlikely to allow these two crown corporations to cease operation even if armageddon is upon us.

    Distilleries are making hand sanitizers due to the short supply, here and in the states. I heard that the Niagara wine growers as well as other farmers are short on labour from Mexico and Jamaica to start the season and that will impact crops and yields.

    I was at the lcbo to pick up some wine and booze didn't seem busy but I ended up buying too much because there were some deals. Actually wife was with me, usually I take a few minutes and she likes to go through all the aisles and look at the magazine to get air miles, I don't drink white only red .. didn't see corona on sale.

    Some people are like slinkies ... they are not really good for anything ... but, they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

    Pruno isn't wine, or moonshine, it's white lightning, hillbilly cough syrup or whatever you want to call it. Making it is easy. Few shots and you won't care about anything guaranteed.

    Plenty of beer in Beer store. There's no mad frenzy for it like for toilet paper......yet!

    I think there's probably lots of product in the supply chain too. Beer is one of the most common produced products in the market so i'm not worried....yet.

    Just came back from returning empties at the beer store here in York Region. Shelves are full. No need to panic folks!

    I don't see gas stations, grocery stores, pharmacies or beer & liquor stores closing any time soon. This crisis is going to go on for a few months so we're all just going to have to adjust and live according to the new protocols being set forth. Wear gloves when handling anything outside of your home (gas station pump handles, abm machines..etc) and try and use tap'n'go as much as you can. practice regular disinfecting around the car and house (bathroom, faucet handles, door handles, car door handles, steering wheel.. etc anything that you touch) and wash your hands regularly.

    Being a prepper for a long time (since before Y2K) I already maintain a medicine, food & water supply so there was no need to go on a panic buying spree. Yes I did buy some extra liquor wine and beer this week but that was because I knew I would we would be spending a lot more time at home and not going out to restaurants or bars for a while. I still go out every few days to get fresh produce but I wear surgical gloves before I enter the store, I don't use carts or baskets and all items go right into my reusable grocery store bags and I hit the self checkout on the way out and do the tap'n'go. I make sure we wash everything well before we eat it or wipe it down before I put it away in the cantina. Right now people should be buying javex bleach to wipe down and clean and disinfect anything they bring into the house!!

    If you practice common sense then chances are that you will get thru this crisis! I just worry about people dropping their guard as soon as we hear that 'the curve has flattened'. Just as in SARS, the second wave (and perhaps 3rd or 4th) will hit us and it may end up affecting many more people than expected.
    people don't remember what you said or what you did. they remember how you made them feel !

    COVID-19 dashboard

    Decent site to see what is being reported worldwide. Note there is a 24 hour lag in the data but this gives you a good idea where we are as of end of day yesterday
