Anyone know when the release to LCBO for this is? I thought I heard June 19? Maybe it was another one of those beer induced dreams I had?

It is probably at least a week away since it doesn't even appear to be listed in the LCBO sytem yet...

Still MIA...bet we don't see this before September (he said, hoping that by saying this I'll be immediately proven wrong with an LCBO listing).

Part of the fall release perhaps?

It's here and is just undergoing the final batch of red tape. The system we have in place seems to have been designed by kafka.

Unfortunately, I think I read that they are being sold as single cans only...

We're paying $13.50 a six pack here:

I suspect it would be over $2.50 a can... but who knows?

$19.99 for a six pack for you , Sid? Something is wrong there.
I'm not gonna support that sort of pricing strategy if it occurs here in Ontario.

When they did the private order last year, it came out to about $3.55 a can, so $2.95 seems reasonable.

You're right. Hmm, it is a great beer, but I'd likely just stick with Crazy Canuck at $2.50 for a local pale in a 473 ml format.
