Not as of my posting, but was officially announced this morning by Goose Island Brewhouse in Toronto via Instagram ... however, upon checking again, they have removed the post. Rumour elsewhere is that the release is limited to approx 200 bottles.

Tickets to the pub's BCBS event on November 24 still appear to be available though. $20 for a 10oz pour and a BCBS tulip glass - appears that you must show up between 5 and 6pm though, before it gets opened up to everyone (pub's IG post from the other day has the ticket link).

Hm. Good point. Have there ever been 12 oz before?

That can’t be right. Maybe he meant 18.50? Which is still real cheap...

If KBS was $7.40 I can see the LCBO getting CBS for $8.50. (12 oz bottles). From what I can tell CBS was only released twice, and once was kegs only. So a format change wouldn't be a huge break from tradition.

Wow. Guess my Contact was right! And if he’s right about the 800 cases, and if they’re in packs of 24... :o

That’s more than enough to go around for the Summerhill neighbourhood!

I think someone said it's sometime in the end weeks of November but because these things are always such a clusterfuck (remember Westy 12?) I forget what is when & it could all be wrong.

Apparently the warehouse that ships to the warehouse that supplies KW had 1400 bottles as of last Friday.

I haven’t a clue what that actually means, but I was more or less told to “chill, you’ll be cool”.

Apparently the Centre of the Universe has shifted slightly from Yonge & Summerhill to 600 King St. West:
