Thirsty Thursday - Flying Monkeys

The Purple Giraffe is a site I found for linking up our travels which include some imbibing of adult liquids.

After being in the States for almost five months and spending some time in Mexico as well this year, it is a cultural shock to come home and realize that you can't just go to any store to get beer, wine or liquor.

In the States you can fill up your gas tank and pick you your liquid libations for the evening at the same time. I can go to Wal-Mart, get a haircut, pedicure, do my groceries, pick up some new underwear, get my glasses fixed and then get beer and wine.

Here in Ontario the only place that we can buy liquor in this province is either at The Beer Store or the Liquor Control Board of Ontario (LCBO) both controlled by the government. They control the stock, opening hours and prices. No shopping around. 

I can just hear all the gasps from my American readers!!!

I just love the "Hoptical Illusion" that I snapped at an LCBO. Flying Monkeys is a local (Barrie On) brewery with a wicked website. I have put a visit to their brewery on our To Do list for this summer.
