We don't talk about this. Nothing to see here. Move along. These are not the droids you are looking for.

Who knows.....but I highly doubt they had a large allocation.

December 1 is not Black Friday (stating the obvious). Will BCBS be on Black Friday still? Back-to-back awesome Fridays at Summerhill, perhaps?

LCBO got a ton of KBS - so you never know. Also, I assume Founders made a bunch of CBS if they're sending it to all 48 states they distribute to. (and canada)

there should be a rule that these '1 lcbo' releases can never be in the same city twice. or make it a challenge where all 1-off releases are in some remote town in northern ontario or something

Well the official release at Founders is a ticketed event with a 2 bottle limit......so I am gonna go out on a limb and say very limited distro.

The KBS we got was an entirely different batch then the US release. There was a shit ton of it.

Limited I'm sure ... on timing, it doesn't look like we'll see it for December 1. I've just received the following reply from the brewery to my Instagram comment regarding LCBO distro: "Most likely mid-to-late December is when you'll see it!"

If there's a reasonable bottle limit, sure, that's probably the best way to do it. Otherwise Count Hugo von TradeHoarder III Esq. can just buy half the allocation in one go, which isn't any better (in fact, I'd say worse) than a Summerhill-only release.

If there’s a bottle limit at Summerhill then why wouldn’t there be a bottle limit online?

14 million people in Ontario and only 3 million of those live in Toronto. There is absolutely no way a government run store’s decision to limit the release to one store is better.
