So when you say cool room temperature is that about 15C? My wine cooler runs about 8C, that's probably too cold?

I see The LCBO is running some "Beaujolais Nouveau" events this week to coincide with the 2009 release. Is this a big deal anymore, I am referring to Beaujolais Nouveau tasting and then purchasing?

It was assigned a number and was on order then suddenly it was deleted from the system. I was told that whoever had the rights for Samuel Adams in Canada or Ontario decided not to bring it in.
