Desperately seeking Boddies

We have noticed that many pubs in Toronto are no longer carrying Boddington's Pub Ale! Does anyone know what's going on? Any places that you have been to that still have it?

  1. I am not certain, but I think I saw a banner outside McSorley's on Bayview advertising Boddngton's. You could call ahead and ask to be sure...

    1. This is really weird. I've been to three pubs in the last few weeks that used to serve Boddington's, and still have it on their menus, but do not serve it anymore (The Longest Yard on Mount Pleasant, The Rose and Crown at Yonge and Eglinton, and The Bedford Academy at Bloor and St George). In two of these three cases, the promise of Boddington's was the sole reason for going to that particular pub! I don't know if it's no longer being distributed in Toronto/Canada, but it certainly seems that way. Most unfortunate.

      1. It's been a few weeks since I was last there, but the Red Lion on Jarvis has Boddington's on tap.
