Re: LCBO Lucky Finds

A single bottle of De Ranke XX Bitter at Summerhill, but there must have been more since they had a product number taped to the cash register. Bargain at $2.95.

Re: Duponnabes need not apply

A bottle-conditioned ale that keeps a very long time. FWIW, a week or two ago I opened a 750ml bottle of Saison Dupont from 2004. Still hugely enjoyable, fresh and lively, even at 14 years old. Orval starts getting tired after 8-10 years, but I think Saison Dupont could go 20+. It will be interesti...

Point taken, but I remember it being below $5 last time we had it. Maybe I'm mistaken...


$5.60 in 2014 according to an old forum post. That's a big price increase.

Re: LCBO Online Exclusives

imagine if the lcbo gets cantillon.. Let's not forget that Esprit did that Cantillon private order all those years ago. What a sedate affair that was, by comparison: you got an email, you took a week or two to think about what you wanted, and then you waited. Oh, and how about a 750ml St Lamvinus f...

Re: LCBO Spring 2018 Craft Beer Release

ooo panil. been a while since we've had that here Is it likely the last one we had was the 'European' version, which has not been produced in a while. This new release should then be the more intense / better- received one. Different beers. We had the full sour 'American' version last time, so it s...

Re: LCBO Winter Release 2017

Or we could just shake the sediment into the beer a few days before opening it? No. Sediment is probably polite; nasty chunky floating sludge is maybe more accurate. It's almost like a magic trick: Behold as a cup of crap suddenly appears in a sealed bottle of beer... It is a nice beer, though. Wit...

Re: LCBO Winter Release 2017

Pretty nice price on the Abbaye des Rocs...but damn do those beers throw off some serious sediment after time in the cellar. Drink fresh or have a strainer ready.

Old? I have SAQ-era bottles (2004?) that are still good.

Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

Went to Summerhill hoping to find some Saison Dupont, but was surprised to see a bunch of Bons Voeux instead. Same batch as before, but not sure if it's a new shipment, or whether they're still pulling cases out of the warehouse. Odd for Summerhill to give shelf space in the cold room to a delisted ...

Re: LCBO Winter Craft Beer Release 2016

the first thing i noticed is the bottle is the same one used by Westvleteren. The last time I had a Cuvee des Jacobins I happened to notice some embossed lettering on the empty bottle. I take a closer look: Trappistenbier (or something like that). I looked at another one--from the same batch, proba...
