LCBO just tweeted a photo of their spring releases and I SPY Nicklebrook Immodest IIPA and a Rainhard bottle.

I just had 2 of those beaus beers last night. The Koru was decent but the Grisette was actually very nice. Had a great peppery finish.

You are referring to the Lagunitas imperial stout? It is part of the spring release?

I'm pretty positive that the Lagunitas Imperial Stout is not coming at all, from what I understand it's a labeling issue....it's a pretty ho-hum stout to be honest so not a big loss here

I was told the Lagunitas Stout had arrived, was in testing and the # is #434209, 650 ml bottle. I actually asked if my local store was getting the Lagunitas in, not the IPA, and they said "Maximus or Stout"? I said "Huh"? Of course wouldn't be the first time a product was listed and in testing and somehow vanished.

The Caldera , the other one I asked about has not arrived yet.

The stout has a number because it was approved initially, no quantity of it ever came into Ontario because it was scrapped due to the text in the label. The product number is still there but has no inventory listed as available, on hold or in transit.
