This is amazing! Beau's continues to be incredibly forward thinking and a positive influence on Ontario beer.
Beau’s CEO Steve Beauchesne says he wants to create a succession plan that will leave the company in good hands by selling shares to staff over the next 25 to 30 years

I know, not Ontario-specific directly, but I thought it might create some conversation!

Do you make beer part of your vacation plans?

Is anyone else surprised that the LCBO is able to sell something like this?
If you’re the type of person who loves surprises, and beer, you may want to head to the LCBO store on King Street South in Waterloo. That’s where a resourceful manager has created the adult version of a surprise party loot bag for beer lovers. According to the LCBO’s Keeley Rogers, the Mystery Beer bags …

I'm really upset today.

My Boyfriend sent me this article about an elephant dying at Angkor Wat in Cambodia and we realized WE saw this exact elephant. We saw her with tourists on her back.

It makes me so upset that tourism has funded a company that puts animals into slavery.

Please, do your research. Don't give money to companies like this.
An elephant has died from exhaustion after years of carrying tourists to the famed Cambodian temple complex of Angkor Wat. Sambo, who was believed to be 40-45 years old, died from a heart attack while ferrying two tourists to the temple.

I'm a member of Beau's Greener Futures Phase One (they're on phase three now) and I've been holding onto some bottles for three years.

Are you a Greener Futures member? Do you drink or cellar your bottles?
