A trio of Modern Times beers just popped up (1,2,3). I've had a few Modern Times beers, always stellar.

Wow, thanks for the heads up. I see they're all highly rated on BA and RB. Looking forward to trying these.

I am a fan of MT since they started. I get their amazing coffees delivered right to my door.

I'm down to my last bottle of last year's KBS. I emailed Founders asking if KBS would be back in the LCBO and received this response this morning.

Thanks for your interest and support!

We will definitely have KBS back at the LCBO this year.

Timing will coincide more in line with the U.S. release so probably will hit in April or early May.

I sent them an email to ask if anything else will be coming to Ontario. Response:
"We definitely plan to have a couple more brands come out that way in the future but nothing we are able to share publicly at this moment."

It's odd that so much MT arrived with basically zero promotion. I'd bet most of the ~200 cans my suburban local received will languish at $4.25 apiece.

Overstock from out West dumped in Ontario?!? Would be too funny.

GoodLot Farmstead Ale (569228) is in the LCBO website but not showing stock. I had a can at a restaurant on Thursday and enjoyed it.

Some Cascade bottles coming to some LCBO locations, and not just in Toronto:

http://www.keep6imports.com/news/cascade

On Saturday, March 10th, 2018 starting at 12:30pm the following three beers will be available (by the single bottle) at Summerhill LCBO in Toronto: Cascade Manhattan NW ’15, Cascade Apricot ’16 & Cascade Sang Du Chene ’15 for a special limited release. The Cascade and Keep6 crew will be in attendance at the growler station inside the store pouring samples of Apricot '16 until 2:30pm.

The following week after Summerhill release a few more LCBO retail stores will receive limited distribution of the three Cascade Beers (please note that each store is subject to change and availability. It is best to call in advance or follow inventory online lcbo.com). Here is the list:

I'd bet it's around $30 per bottle. Are Cascade beers typically hitting shelves so old?
