Aye, but you're still a prince among men Greg!

On an unrelated note - awesome pricing for the Schneider!

Not bad (considering it is a crappy summer release). A few new things to try and the Schneider is going to be tasty.

My only complaint is there is no Weihenstephaner Hefewessbier this year.

I am very happy with the summer release. And the only beer that I actually want out of all of them is the Hopfen-Weisse! :P I'm not even a fan of the d'Hibiscus.

That would probably be because it's now on the General List...

I reckon that's a far more satisfactory list than in previous years. And the pricing on most of those is not too shabby at all! I'm not complaining...

That being said, it is too bad though they couldn't bring in a Hacker-Pschorr that isn't already available year-round (a lot of the self-serve Beer Stores sell the Münchner Gold, as well as the regular Edelhell). Oh well, still a good beer and I'm glad to see this brewery continuously represented.

On a separate note, that Skjálfti is from Iceland!??! That's got to be a new 'tick' for most people out there.

Whoops. OK, I now have zero complaints.

Edit: What's even more pathetic is I saw this a few times and would not pick it up because I thought it was leftover stock.

I'm excited to try the Hopfen Weisse, Rosée d’Hibiscus, Ginger Brew, Raspberry Ale, and Kolsch.

Underwhelmed to see Christoffel, Edelweiss, Summer Ale, and Pump House returning, even though they're all good beers. And why buy the Edelhell when you can get it at The Beer Store and on tap at several beer bars?

Probably won't bother with the Skjalfti and Trafalgar, and I'm VERY disappointed to see the Green Tea Ale back. One of the worst beers I've sampled in the last two years.

Looks like a mediocre release overall, but it's nothing to cry about either. I'll be going for Creemore Kellerbier over the weaker beers from this release.

I’ll be buying a lot of this (incase Shawn comes over!):
Schneider Hopfen Weisse

A good amount of this:
Dieu du Ciel Rosée d’Hibiscus
Christoffel Bier
Hitachino Nest Real Ginger Brew

A bottle of this, and we’ll see from there:
Gaffel Kolsch
Hacker-Pschorr Munich Gold Edelhell
Skjalfti
Samuel Smiths Organic Raspberry Ale
