Most likely, they have/had a butter tart beer on tap at their saloon this past week.

Why would they reject it?

Also, can you provide a link to that facebook page, please?

Just search for North America Craft on facebook. It's their most recent post:

'we were declined by the Lcbo. Only self serve beer stores in Ontario.'

Because it's a great beer that lots of people would buy and the LCBO's job is to ensure that we can't have nice things.

LCBO's response in a nasally irritating voice

"We feel that we already have too many sku's dedicated to the IPA style. It is our belief that the margin would be better attained through golden ales or english ales because that is what we feel the consumer wants. No we do not look at trends or even our own sales figures to determine our product buying habits"

Done completely tongue in cheek...... or was it.....

It is odd that Peensteen saw it listed as coming to the lcbo.. wonder how it made the list if it had been declined.

This is a joke right? The LCBO didn't actually say this.

Of course not, can't you even tell - they would have spelled 'SKU' in all-capital letters. ;)

"December will see the return of Wuchak Black, the winter instalment in the brewery’s seasonal Wuchak IPA series. A 6% abv and 77 IBU Cascadian dark ale, the “black, bitter and strong” Wuchak Black is the most popular seasonal brand in Kichesippi’s line-up.

Wuchak Black will be available at the brewery store in cans, and will also be part of the Winter Beers promotion at select LCBO locations."
