La Barberie is a terrific brew-pub with the day's offering on a chalkboard just like in my dreams.
The steak is terrific at L'Entrecote. We first went in 1986, I think it was, and we always return.
We picked up the Loyalist in at the brewery in Picton. I was really hoping to find Royal George but they didn't have it, at least not exactly. I picked up a blend which will be described later. They also said that they expected to have it at the LCBO "any day now" and had been for some time.
