100th Post

Without even realizing it last week, when I posted on the state of the Firkin franchise, I was writing my 100th post since creating this blog.

When I first started out I wondered if I would be able to post regularly and on relative material. With other sites out there dedicated to Ontario/Canadian beer like Bar Towel, A Good Beer Blog, Beer,Beats,Bites and Stephen Beaumont's sites, I decided to focus a little more on pubs. Places that offer my drink of choice.

It has gone very well since August and I am still having fun doing this. Five months ago when you typed in Canadian pubs into google.com you would receive a list of fake Irish pubs, a Yahoo directory, and some others, but now sitting at number 9 on the first page is this site; promoting real and unique pubs along with terrific craft beer. I am proud of that and maybe one day it can move up that list.

So thanks for reading and for sending all the emails recommending pubs to try. Slowly but surely I'll get there and profile them. I have to get to some places outside the city as well. A personal favourite pub of mine is the Huether Hotel's Lion Brewery Restaurant in Waterloo, which I must and will write about soon. Also, some readers have expressed interest in submitting a profile of their favourite locals so stay tuned for features written by guest writers.

Cheers!
Troy
