Thats pretty big news. Not surprised about elysian as you can find it just about everywhere in BC. Im guessing it should show sometime next year.

Excellent news. Hopefully we won't see the same red tape as we getting with Green Flash.

I've changed the subject of this thread to something that is more descriptive and stands out a bit.

The red tape does not discriminate.

Doesn't NAC act as an agent in more provinces than Ontario? Are we sure that this means we are going to see these beers in Ontario?

I thought the FB posts were strange - they just put a bunch of pictures up of beer one after the other with no description.

With their comments of "Who knows" and "Maybe this will show up one day" - Certainly seems like they're putting the cart before the horse.

Word on the street is that NAC have a Sierra Nevada-related announcement to make. But maybe that's even more up in the air as they haven't been flaunting it all over their FB.
