It was up at Dupont and Spadina too. Tried to buy one but they wouldn't sell it to me as there was no price in the system and I couldn't remember what it was. For some reason they didn't want to haggle.

No, never saw it. Was merely trying to draw attention to myself. :wink:

Also did not see 6-packs of the new Duggans offering.

A BTer (PeenSteen) has already reviewed the PPA on BA.

Sorry, didn't mean to offend ... just found it weid that a beer could be on the shelf without showing up in inventory. Also, I drove by that store 3 hours ago and I would have stopped in had I known it was there... damn LCBO.

This was a bit of a staff only LCBO tasting, not available for sale yet. I keep a glass at work for situations like these. It should go live tomorrow or later today

I'm curious if the Beau's is a full-on Doppelbock or maybe the Wheat (Weizen) Doppelbock they were toying with.

I've only tried the Miami Weiss and a different, black IPA version of the Super Collider before, but just by the sounds of the beers in this release, it seems like the brewers really brought their A game. Good style variation (American Pale Wheat Ale, American Pale Ale, Double IPA, and presumably a Weizenbock), cool titles, and participation from four of the best breweries in the province. Hopefully the beers deliver in terms of quality (I'm guessing they will).

Flying Monkeys had Supercollider at the Toronto Festival Of Beer and it wasn't bad, I also heard the kegs they brought there were pulled from the tanks early I hope the bottled version comes out better with full maturity.

I will be purchasing all four of those. And probably multiples of a couple.

Whereabouts? I just came from there and literally spent 15 minutes triple checking everywhere beer might reasonably be in the store, asked 2 employees, both of whom had no clue as to what I was talking about. How much was there yesterday? Could it have sold out already? Or perhaps they took it off the floor?
