Odds that the Boneshaker is from 2016? I can’t believe they refuse to put logical date stamps on their product.

Surprisingly, that is not a bad mix pack. Those are basically their four best beers.

Yeah, I like three of the four beers. Haven't tried the pils yet.

I'd still prefer Tempest on its own, but as far as the mix goes that's about best case scenario. Maybe I'll even buy two.

Nice pack for sure...but way too many beers to choose from these days, I won't be buying it simply to get tempest.
So happy I don't have beer FOMO anymore.

IMO it's one of the better pilsners from Ontario, up there with Tooth and Nail Vim and Vigor and Bellwoods Paper Tiger. So at a minimum, worth trying.

I should qualify my earlier comment by noting that some of Amsterdam's farmhouse beers/sours and the Autumn Hop are also among their best. But my point stands – you could do a lot worse than these four beers.

Ya, I was expecting some of the more boring core beers to be a part of this pack but will likely buy this one.

I agree on the farmhouse/sours, Ezra (though it was a GLB collab) is one of the best Ontario farmhouse ales I've tried. Would've been nice to see an Adventure Brew thrown into the mix, but I do enjoy those 3 beers so it's certainly a worthwhile pack.

From Rochester Mills brewery at https://deskgram.net/p/1867627771174746380_23270247 :
All packed up and ready to go — Our first export to the @lcbo is a Seasonal Sampler Pack of Milkshake Stout favorites. Look for them to arrive this Holiday.

I don't know if this is to be on the WINTER or the XMAS list. Anyone heard more about it?

Honestly those flavours sound disgusting. This trend of overly flavoured beer and "pastry stouts" just isn't for me.

There is a sub market for sweet stuff. AT Merit which does a bunch of sweets, even the IPA is tasting sweet

I'll try the fuck out of those. Sounds fun. And I'm also starting to board the train of 'all the fruit and lactose fuck off'. But not quite. I still enjoy the good stuff of that ilk and likely always will. Just get's a bit overwhelming sometimes.
