Saison Dupont is hitting LCBO shelves any day now.

HHOE have a pretty epic lineup in their online shop right now. I'd wager about half of it is better than anything in this HF release.

Four Winds Nectarous has been available online for a while now, it's pretty great and normally hard to get here too.

Cascade Rose City, Sang Rouge and Midnight Bramble are all in stock online right now.

Crooked Stave Veille is in stock online.

Honestly, I don't really get what all the hubub was over the HF release. I've had all those beers before and while they're all great the only one I considered buying was Florence. I decided to get some Nectarous instead, because I like the beer just as much and it was cheaper/easier. I got some Veille last week too. Once I finish drinking down my stock of Lem, I'll probably put in another HHOE order because their stuff is just so good if you love the sour stuff.

This is great advice, thanks! I had no idea about the Crooked Stave or Four Winds. And the latest from HHOE does look pretty epic at the moment. You, kind sir, have saved the day.

Went and checked out the HHOE website after reading this post, good lineup indeed. Proceeded to order a case of their beers, perhaps they should give you a kick-back!

If you're out there Kyle, I accept gratitude/commissions in the form of beer. :D

Picked up an online order yesterday and when I got home and opened it I had about $190 of Spanish red wine instead of $67 of beer. Took it back and sure enough, the paperwork was mixed up with another box.

My local always insists I open the box to make sure everything is in order.

Mine too. For good reason, it's wrong about a quarter of the time.

i've done a few online orders and had drastically different experiences each time (all at the same store). ranging from just handing me the box, no questions asked, to multiple pieces of paperwork, ID, and validating every single bottle thoroughly

Yep, and sign their copy of the invoice accepting the contents.

Anybody know what is going on with all the online exclusive beers on LCBO? Bunch of stuff was available and now all out of stock (Vieille, Crossfade, Life On, Nectarous...). The new Dunham beers that were there this week and available aren't even listed on the site anymore. Wondering if Keep6 has pulled all their beers and won't be selling on LCBO now.

Most third party online listings have been pulled within a few weeks of going out of stock.

EDIT - Wow, yeah, that's the most I've seen OoS yet...
