Showing on the lcbo website, it was the beer that converted me. Can't wait to pick some up!

This brings a smile to my face. I always used to have a bomber of this in the fridge. I have been drinking a fair bit of the steam beer lately.

This is great news - I do miss the bombers, but it's great to have it back...

Awesome. I didn't buy enough of it when it was last here. Hopefully it sticks around as a year-round listed item.

You know now that I think about it - lately, I'm drinking less big bottles of beer and more 330-355ml bottles...sometimes a pint is just a lot...so this new format might be welcome.

Although, I do seem to remember to bombers being a really good bargain.

Either way...awesome...can't wait to drink this again...

Used to always have a few bottles of Liberty Ale in the fridge when it was around. Excellent news to see it coming back!

One of the first craft beers I had, only had it the one time. Going to have to pick some up to re visit it see how my opinion has changed.

From memory, I think the bombers were around $3.95 a bottle which made them more of a bargain than the 6 pack....in the long run. But people didn't buy the bombers because the serving size was too much!!!

Not part of the spring release, so...new year-round listing?

Six packs were at the Cooper's store...I passed for now, because I was focused on the Garrison stuff and I got so much crazy canuck and red racer to get through...

A completely tolerable brew that is not completely geek beer in amenable company.

Great news, this is one of those beers I always enjoyed and may drink more of now that it is in 6-packs.

Might replace/complement Tankhouse as one of my keep in stock beers for friends.
