I am fairly certain that they already confirmed this in one of their blogs or newsletters.

Yep, just re-iterating.

Also on the plus side, with the release of Bring Out Your Dead, that means that those used barrels are going to create a delicious batch of 3 Minutes to Midnight.

Working through some beers that I've been saving (and have more of in the cellar) in order to make room for others. - Hitachino Nest Espresso Stout (doesn't really taste like a stout to me, more like an old ale almost...) - Bellwoods' Bounty Hunter (late 2014 batch) - Dieu du Ciel's Aphrodisiaque (a...

I was surprised by the high limit as well. In the past they've been fairly strict on limits (a couple releases I can't recall plus the 2014 Motley Cru, which was a limit of 4, come to mind).

I'll be splitting my 8 bottles between 3 people.

Any idea how many bottles of BOYD there are? There were 2000 for SK. The photos they posted show a "/2100" on the label just like Skeleton Key: http://i.imgur.com/6UJNEMl.jpg Same price ($13) and limit (8 bottles) as Skeleton Key as well. I'll be there when they open to get my 8 bottles.

Dieu Du Ciel's Péché Mortel for me tonight.

Grabbed a bunch of them + the Aphrodisiaque the last time I was in Ottawa. $2.89 a bottle, I couldn't resist.

I wish I had a car and could make it out to Gravenhurst to get a bottle or two of The Blood of Cthulu. Had it at Cask Days and it was fantastic.

Also, Amsterdam's 2014 Tempest is out today. Grabbed a couple bottles from the Brewhouse retail store.

Bring Out Your Dead was delayed a couple of weeks, just FYI.

Given that the tickets were distributed digitally (I've got mine in Passbook on my phone) I'd say presenting your phone would be just fine.

Noticed the website said they only had ~20 left at Queens Quay so I ran over at lunch and grabbed one. Looked like they only had a box or two left when I was there. Might have to wait a few days until I'm feeling better to give 'er a try though.

Heh, yeah, web presence seems to be one of their weaknesses.

It looks like it was a glitch or something else because they've all been updated with actual discounted prices now.

I think the pages for those products are making it look like it's on sale.

For example, that Somersby Citrus Cider used to be $3.00, but they raised it to $3.20 before dropping it back down to $3.00. Now the page says "Was $3.20" on it.

LCBO and their "sales"

I noticed something kind of interesting this morning when I checked my twitter feed. I follow @LCBOWatch on Twitter, and they tweet whenever there are new beer/cider releases or price changes to existing LCBO products. This morning I saw a flood of [SALE] tweets from them. Looks like the LCBO marked...
