Take this as you will but, he said if there was any more it could possibly arrive this coming Friday. I would advise against bombarding them with phone calls, though.


There are zero bottles left in the warehouse....if you don't have any you are probably SOL

Curious....if the shipment is 600+ bottles, does a portion of that go directly to licensees? I don't think there were ever 600 of those that hit shelves, so I'm wondering if they get snapped up by bars, etc beforehand?

It's on Barvolo's bottle menu now, so I would assume yes.

Well when they first started showing stock barVolo tweeted about looking for these bottles, so I don't think they got any directly.

Perhaps Volo found a bunch of bottles the day they were released? Remember, the way that the LCBO inventory system works, any beer that is purchased on the same day it arrives at a store never shows up in inventory.

Perhaps, but after seeing a photo of their cellar on twitter, I'd almost believe they were just looking for a few more bottles on top of their order.

Okanagan Summer Craft 6 pack. #336917 Contains 2 x Okanagan Pale Ales, 2 x 1516 lagers, and 2 x very delicious Apricot Summer Weizens!! Going to be buying lots of these 6 packs just to drink the Apricots, not to thrilled about the other 2 beers. Man, that Apricot is delicious, had it on tap at a bunch of places, sooooo different than St. Ambroise Apricto Wheat, so much much better!
