I am curious about Schneider Bavaria Xmas 2017. And hopefully the Chimay pack comes with a glass.

So good to see Van de Keizer Blauw return - and still under $10 no less!

For the first time in, what, 20 or 25 years? WTF?

Now that I think about it, I haven't really seen any Samuel Smith's beers in any 'BO for at least a few months, if not the better part of a year.

The only Sam Smith product still in the LCBO database is their Organic Ale, which is listed as 'discontinued'. Can't find their Oatmeal Stout anywhere, which used to be at least semi-regularly available.

Maybe they've pulled a Southern Tier?

Their Organic Chocolate Stout is included in the winter release so they must not have bailed entirely.

And imo the pale ale is one of their weaker beers. I absolutely love the oatmeal stout and the winter warmer is usually always in my fridge during the holiday season. They also usually have the Xmas pack with the pint glass too.

Sam Smiths Winter WELCOME should be a there somewhere because we've had it since 1994...such a regular so not on the list of new Christmas beers. It has more bite than the pale ale and as a Yorkshireman, is one of my favourites
