"Sucks" being the most appropriate word in that release.

Interesting to see an Oskar Blues beer in there, even if it's not the one I would pick.

I'm good with this list - but I am a fan of Belgians and porters/stouts. Nice to have Three Philosophers available and there's an additional Belgian quad that I haven't tried yet and piques my interest. St. Feuillien's grand cru, tripel and saison have all been quite good and so I'll happily give their dubbel a shot.

I really enjoyed the Prearis Quadrocinno when I drank it in Belgium a few summer's ago. If I recall correctly, the guy behind it won homebrewer of the year in Belgium and then subsequently was invited to contract brew at De Proef. It was really good quality stuff - still very traditional quad but a bit unique with the addition of coffee.

The lagunitas ipa and maximus were both 3+ months old by the time they hit the lcbo shelves..

Still some decent beers in this release though. Combine this with the online only beers and things are shaping up. I'm hoping a few of you return parts of your case orders to various lcbos. ( Evil Twin More Jesus for example)

No problem! Sorry about the formatting, I just copied and pasted out of the source file.

Yeah, I agree with this line of thinking -- better release than the last few. Three Philosophers, G'night and Fuller's RIS all appeal to me, as do the Belgians. Will be passing on any chipotle, coffee or chocolate infusions though.
