I was also wondering this, so I looked into it a bit and the answer seems to be 'yes'. Both of the vdK brews have had a name change.

It looks like the vdK Blauw is now called "vdK Imperial Dark".

Weird. I made a post in this thread this afternoon but apparently it fell into the fifth dimension? It seems to exist within the forum's data (i.e. it shows up in my list of posts when I check my profile), but not in the thread itself. Whatever - here it is again.

The post is there, it's right above the one you just made. Maybe you just didn't see it on the second page?

Halloween 2018 list was updated https://hellolcbo.com/app/answers/detai ... NVbg%3D%3D

I'm hoping this list is incomplete otherwise RIP Pumpkin Beers.

Good ridden IMO, never had a pumpkin beer I didn't regret buying after the second sip.

I'm missing something, that looks like a list of 6 pumpkin beers to me.

Nope. Still can't see it. Otherwise I'd have deleted it by now.

FWIW - I got a notification yesterday that you responded to my post, but didn't (and still don't) see your original response. Very strange indeed, but thanks for the info re: van de Keizer name changes.

Nice! That is a lot of Ontario beer. To manage, I plan to concentrate on the Festbiers/Marzens, which I always look forward to once the leaves start to turn. And, of course, GLB and GR Highballer Pumpkin ales, once a year while passing out candy on Oct 31. C'mon pumpkin haters! It's just once a year. :D

Some good news in that Ontario release if you're a ticker. The collective Arts IPA7 is what i'll be on the lookout for.

I wonder if it's coming anytime soon. IPA No. 6 hits LCBO next week.

I see Collective Arts IPA 7 on the list, yet 6 has yet to make its appearance in stores. This has been a tremendous series of IPA’s and I eagerly await these next variations.

As for the pumpkin ales...if I never had one again it would still be to soon.

I’d like to see them bring back the Hopsinjoor. Love that beer.

I agree. Cmon! They’re malty and spicey - a traditional historic ale. Buy few the week before Halloween. Practically the same species and flavours that are in. Lot of winter ales.
