For me it is absolutely the Sang du Chene but also the Manhattan is no slouch at all. The Apricot is a sour-fest and the easiest on the wallet.

These are all super kick-ass even for the price. Prices are cheap next to comparable effort and cost put into wines, I would say. YMMV.

They are pretty comparable price wise on a per volume basis aren't they?

It's not new to the LCBO, but Elora Borealis has never (to my knowledge) made to Eastern Ontario before recently. I was happy to see it on the shelves in Ottawa as I've become a fan from visits to KW. It's made me wonder if there are other great beers available at the LCBO that do not make it this far east.

Weird. My first instinctive response is that the LCBO website is often inaccurate.

If they're actually brewing Sapporo in Vietnam and shipping it here, though, that's pretty dumb. They own several perfectly good breweries on this side of the ocean.

My thought too. I'm waiting to see the actual can.
