    Mill St was bought by InBev? We only have Anheuser products (aka Goose Island, Shock Top, Boddingtons, Rolling Rock etc).

    The tall can selection is pretty decent in certain areas

    Yeh, the tall boy selection especially on the second level concourse on the east side is pretty good.

    Yes, InBev bought Mill Street.

    I would like to see Mill Street on tap instead of Goose Island. Although both are made here in Toronto (yes, Goose Island in Canada is made in Canada, not Chicago), I would prefer the truly local that is just as good. 100th Meridian on tap would be awesome. Even tall cans would be decent.

    Which area do they sell Boddingtons at BMO?

    on the side, I find it incredibly silly that certain beers are only available at some sections at BMO.....I mean I get that Boddingtons for example won't be at every beer stand, but if its only sold at a stand in the North-East corner say, why not at least have a stand like that in all 4 corners of the stadium.....as of now, I don't think that's the case.....

    Excellent. Another thread about beer complaints. This time we pit microbrews vs microbrews!

    It's always funny to me that people want local beer over other beer while having no problem paying the bulk of our salary to an Italian and 2 Americans.

    InBev OWNED microbreweries.


    Come on, a guy has to dream of something good while waiting for the home opener.

    I've seen it at the beer carts at the back of the southend 2nd deck. They also had Amsterdam blonde last season at the same carts.

    Don't know if they always had it as I didn't venture up very often.

    Not really. All three types of goose island are on par with or imo, better than mill street.

    But keep complaing man. Im sure it will get rid of bud in no time. You wonder how people get to 3300 posts. It's probably by complaining about beer.

    so having a preference is complaining ? hmm if I find Mill St a really easy to drink beer and it's local , although now sold , I can't wish for that . the last two years have been quite shitty as far as beer and choice go at BMO . Their cider is hilariously shit . We're all wishing for products (overpriced), that at least when we PAY we gain some form of satisfaction /quality . I guess we should simply hand over our $$$ no questions asked . I had better beer in Columbus from their fresh micro brew stand , and cheaper to . Enjoy Goose Island , but it's Canada allow me spend my money as I feel , as you do .

    Oh, I enjoyed Goose Island last year compared to the rest of the offerings prior to 2014 (when Hoegarden is the best beer in the stadium, that was just sad) but 100th Meridian kicks its ass.

    Mix your $4 Dasani water half and half with a $12 Bud and add a snuck-in wedge of lime.

    Goose Island is pretty good. I can't complain too much about it, although it is ONE beer and available at what, two locations at the stadium? Funny, I hadn't heard that Mill Street was bought by Labatt (InBev in the grand scheme) until this thread. Hmm.

    Bringing more of the small, once craft brews that are under that conglomerates control makes so much more sense. 100th Meridian, Mill Street Organic and even the porters for those cold days to add so much to the gameday refreshment experience. Please make this happen.

    For some reason I feel like i have seen Corona tall cans at one of the larger beer setups on the east side. If they have it, it would be at the one with 5 or 6 doors of tall cans on the 2nd level of the east side.

    I was disappointed as well, but a good friend who is the business reflected that Mill street has just become too big to be an independent, in order to keep up with demand they had to move to the big three in world beer marketing. I like their brews and will buy them if available at BMO. I wonder if Mill Street has the same deal as Goose Island where the contract states they have I think 5 years of free range on recipe development. In the UK, Deageo saved and revived many Scotch Distilleries allowing them to keep distilling in their respective areas and traditions. Just business I suppose. There is a difference between Craft Brewers and Micro Brewers. Seek out the Micro Brewers.
    Beer discussion is so interesting, and so personal isn't it. Drink what tastes good to you. Cheers

    Of the Mill Street line, I still really enjoy the Tankhouse Ale, nice and Malty, with just enough hops a real British Style ale, Goose Island Honkers is another good one, Reminds me of Spitfire Kentish Ale.

    Did anyone see Boneshaker or Cruiser on site? That'd be a great way to get my wife to come to more games.
