I see. So are those 75 cases part of what the LCBO originally intended for consumers? Or did you tack 75 cases on to the original order? Essentially, does this mean there'll be less Dupont in the system for us consumers than the LCBO originally intended? -Josh If I may leap here in Josh, we all kno...

Where will I be able to get a case of the Saison without depriving the whole neighborhood? Based on Peter's note, there are 225 cases for the 600 LCBO stores. Hmmm... constant complaints from Peter that we don't buy enough of the seasonals Supply and demand must agree with respect to each item. The...

Move quick on the Saison Dupont as I'm buying 75 cases right off the top and that's 1/4 of the entire order. I've noticed some stores are getting tiny inventories of released products, 24 or less. Very odd system. Where will I be able to get a case of the Saison without depriving the whole neighbor...

Well "Dark Beer" is as much a vague category as "Light Coloured Beer" and I'm pretty undiplomatic so I call the bullshit of it. Preconceptions aren't facts, and there are a range of tastes in the 'dark' spectrum we can get to know. Hockley Dark (sold single 2.55) is styled after nice fresh Brit ales...

Definitely a great beer, and I agree the packaging and large-type ingredients listing are hip. A very no-BS presentation.

Don't worry, breathe... the LCBO always has late arrivals. They won't pull a "Goudenband" on us. We hope. :lol:

Everyone I have offered Hockley Dark to has liked it. It is a class act, and one can suffices for two servings if you don't want your guests getting plastered on your liability. I think the fuller, longer flavor makes it less of a guzzling beer than some Sleemans, etc. Even those people that don't ...

I can't get an answer from the LCBO as to why as there is no reason for them not be in stores now I'm guessing the cases are mixed in the pallets for the next Vintages release and most stores don't want to unpack them until they need to. Some stores have people who don't have a clue what's going on...

The summer promotion officially started today, and it usually takes a while for the beers to trickle out into the system. In my experience it's silly to drive around hunting for 'missing' beers, so just chill with your VISA & Air Miles card handy... and be sure to buy cases and cases so Peter &...

Re: Sorry Perry, wrong thread

I can’t wait for the day Molson decides to use the word “Craft” in their marketing for Creemore. Since Howard sold out to the Devil, all he will be able to do is sit back at the Friday morning beer tasting and bitch about it. Howard, you must remember, has done nothing evil or immoral. I know you a...

I see a future where our world lives by wise use of science instead of dirty, insane political control.

I see myself winning the Super-7 too, call me a selfish hypocrite.

A more people are looking to Dundas with it's huge buildings at ridiculously low rents as a good alternative. It'll take another 10 years but I expect this area to be quite different (I'll make millions on my real estate holdings) by then....were we talking about pizza? Interesting Peter, I always ...

Hmm, there are too few members here for acrimonious BS, you could always do the logical thing and go fo a beer. Because at the end of the pint nobody is better than anyone else.

Life's too short dudes, move on (or at least confine it to e-mail :D )
