Anyone know what is going on with the Punk IPA? I see the LCBO listing that was out there is discontinued. I'm more surprised to see one store is actually showing inventory!! Could that just be a private order? I'm really looking forward to this beer in the summer release.

The Punk IPA was part oflast years release, so that would be why it's in the inventory and now discontinued. The stock that is showing is probably phantom stock.

Has the Mikeller Frelser been and gone already? Or not yet distributed? Doesn't seem to be in many LCBOs.

I think what you see there is what's left. I highly suggest picking it up, it's quite amazing!

Wow, Really? I thought Peter said that the BO rejected their submission...Hm...sounds like Cuvee Rene verticals this summer!

I'll talk to Peter tomorrow. Thought I heard the same as well. Unless he has a ton left over from last shipment.

The beers in the Summer release have been confirmed, and a new thread started: http://www.bartowel.com/board/viewtopic.php?t=7934

I'll lock this thread now so discussion can continue over there.
