Anyone seen the new Collective Arts IPA (No. 13) in any GTA LCBOs?

The LCOB website has hiccups, but in my experience has been fairly reliable. No inventory showing right now.

Had a really nice hefeweiss from common good brewing. Can artwork is awful but the beer is bang on style.

I noticed the new listing, but totally missed that it was in a can.

I never got around to picking this up, and the listing is now gone. Often if something is sold out, the listing is still there with no inventory.

Went to an LCBO today, and they had a whole flat. Just checked the website now, and yes, it is there. I swear it was not there yesterday when I checked. And no, I hadn't had too many to drink. :D

Ooh, ooh, ooh! That has potential to be excellent as a post-golf quaffer. Love the abv too. Thanks for the head's up.

Yeah it's also 1 % ABV less than the amazing Beyond the Pale Yummy which has disappeared from Western Ontario.

For such a large brewery in Ontario, GLB makes it stupidly difficult to buy their beers direct, if you don't want a case of stuff.

Happy they are doing LCBO with a wider range of beers, as I might buy their stuff more often again. I don't think you can even just show up at the brewery to buy what you want anymore?

Pretty sure you can get singles / mix and match etc if you go to the retail store now but I could be wrong.

I would also possibly buy more from them if I could get say singles / 4 packs of some things but I'm betting they are dealing with enough delivery volumes that it just doesn't make sense for them. if letting me and other like minded people order an extra case or two every few months boosts sales lets say 1% but somehow makes their existing sales 5% less efficient (I'm pulling numbers from nowhere) it's probably not worth it for them.

It's not optimal for me personally, but i totally get why. As much as I would love for breweries to model their services specific to my own personal needs, that doesn't seem to be the driving force behind most of their business models. :( :D

Once can for about 3 weeks now. I swung by at the tail end of a recent bike ride and grabbed 4 or 5 singles with no problem.

Ah cool...good to know.
I suppose a bike ride out to GLB will have to happen soon one weekend soon to see what they have.
Ya, I guess walk-up biz isn't their main deal seeing as how they close at 6 during every day.
