Somewhere around the same amount if I remember correctly. Somewhere between 8500 and 10,000. A good judge would be he Stone Xocoveza when it comes out, there are 8630 bottles of that ordered and 9216 of KBS. Unless you are out of the province for the first 2-3 weeks after this comes out I don't think anyone here is going to get shut out. This is a pretty substantial number of bottles coming and I suspect pricing will be around the $7-8 mark so not exactly cheap enough for everyone buy by the case.
Its also safe to assume that Summerhill will get 1000+ bottles of this that will sit there for a while in typical Summerhill fashion since they aren't keen on transferring beer out and it's not a 'beer-centric' area of the city, no matter how much the LCBO thinks otherwise. IMO the only reason it is a boutique beer location is based solely on the size of the building itself and not an accurate reflection of the craft beer market in Toronto/Ontario, Summerhill has the largest collection of 3-6 month old locally brewed IPA/APA's I have ever seen anywhere.
