Re: heads up

Though the big news is St-Ambroise did a maple beer, and no surprise, it's the best of the bunch. I wonder if it'll come to the LCBO? "Buy St Ambroise Erable Roughly 40 kegs of this delight is on it’s way to Toronto as I type. You can find it on tap anywhere that you usually find St Ambroise p...
