I was in Vermont this weekend as well. Picked up a case of Heady Topper, some Hill Farmstead Ephraim and some bottles of Main Brewing stuff. Wish I could have got more, but didn't want to have to pay Canadian customs on it. It was my first time in Vermont and I loved it! It's like a magical land of beer.
Went to Bar Isabel on Friday. As expected, food was really good. Great cocktail and beer list was well. The space in pretty cool and definitely different from anything else in Toronto. Want to go back and try some more dishes.
Hadn't seen the Toronto episode of the Layover until you mentioned it. I have just been eating in Toronto for the last 10 years and these are the places that I curently like and would recommend,
Squash and kale risotto, fried egg

It's a fairly time consuming process, but with some planing it can be adapted to fit into a full-time work schedule. I bake two loafs...
Beef, barley and stout pie.
No barrel aged Peche at the LCBO, but sometimes bars and restaurants have them. Brooklyn is quite good with a few years of aging on it. I like Nogne 100 and the Nogne Two Captains is a pretty solid Imperial IPA. The 100 also ages well. Lava is a Smoked Imperial Stout from Iceland and is pretty good. Definitely worth picking up. http://bit.ly/c285kw Have you been to Bellwoods on Ossington yet? Their Hellwoods Stout is really good. Their Imperial IPA, Witchshark, will...
