Thanks for the post, but looking at that list, I can't help feeling like I've been kicked in the stomach...

Looks like a copy and paste of the list from last Xmas, with Petrus #9 and an Aventinus variant thrown in.

Definitely the main bright spot. The lack of St. Ambroise RIS and Vintage Ale is a huge bummer, though.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but weren't these initial left off the Christmas release last year but still came eventually?

thought that also happened with Sammiclaus.

but what a shitty list. i still have some 6-packs of st berny from last year. it's a nice thing to have available, but it looks like i'll again be spending my beer $$ in the US of A and not in Ontario

There was an effort to bring those two St. Ambroise products in, but I believe it ultimately failed.

Samichlaus did show up eventually, however. Well after Christmas, I think.

Nothing earth shattering, but, for me, there's still some good fall-back tasty beers that I enjoy each year(even if they are repetitive). I'll probably end up buying Sam smith warmer,both st berny products,St peters,Fullers as per usual. It would be nice to see more new/interesting stuff on there though.....and of course, more products with glassware

Looks like the St Bernardus 6-pack price has gone up $1 from last year.

Like always, the winter release (stouts and barleywines) is always so much more interesting.

I'm guessing there won't be any beer advent calendars this year...

Lackluster is probably the first word that came to mind.

Boy the LCBO loves those Historic Beers of Scotland.

I bet a bunch of these repeats sell well due primarily to secret santa shoppers. I know that one or more of these makes an appearance at my wife's work Christmas party every year...
