For a beer that spent a year in a bourbon barrel, there was very little barrel character. I also thought it was pretty bitter/astringent. It couldn't be the hops after all tha...

A couple of us tried to get a 'Canada' designation in the BA ISO:FT forum for sorting purposes, but it never gained traction.

I talked with the beer guy at my LCBO who said the system showed ~5000 bottles at a single warehouse (don't remember which one, sorry). He had no idea when distribution would happen or to where though.

So buy 5 cases and then they will consider selling you 1 case of Loons...if you're one of the chosen ones.... Yah, sounds legit; I can't think of any way that could go wrong :roll: .

Even these days are gone. A case of Mamouche had an overhead of 3 other cases plus handler fees and as Ian mentioned Fou had an overhead of 4 other cases. That's just robbery....

Yah, I was surprised at the JP price; it was cheaper at the LCBO than at some of the bottle shops right next to the brewery! And I couldn’t agree more with some of the praise for JP, they are making some phenomenally delicious beers.

I'm getting more and more turned off my most pricing at the LCBO lately. I used to be okay with some of it, but seeing a the Jolly Pumpkin witbier at 4.8% ABV selling for $10 bucks...
