Founders Breakfast Stout has moved to all year availability as per their 2018 Availability Calendar. Does anyone know if we'll be getting this one all year or is it seasonal here?

Hmm, LCBO site still lists no stock available when I search all stores. Where did you see stock available?

Stock was earmarked and already gone - didn't make it to the shelf. Founders website confirms a "launch" event at Summerhill next Wednesday December 13 at 9:30 with roll out at other LCBO locations to begin December 14. https://foundersbrewing.com/events/cbs-launch-at-summerhill-lcbo/

Ah, got it now. Thanks! I have a feeling there'll be a mad dash for this one...

That case in Ottawa definitely made it to the shelf (likely by accident). I picked up a couple. Drinking it right now.

Nice to see the Founders CEO coming to Toronto. Hopefully this means the start of a long relationship between Founders and the LCBO.

My mistake - from posts elsewhere it seemed like at least one case went this way. Good for you!

There was a four pack left when I got there. Which is fine by me. Now I can ignore the rollout on the 14th.

Whoever bought the rest of the case got a deal. While I was in line the staff were discussing how the other bottles were incorrectly sold at the Breakfast Stout price.

Don’t bother going to Summerhill. They put it all back for next week.

The CBS stock in Toronto disappeared before the store even opened. Somebody must have caught that mistake.

This is exactly what happened earlier this year when Goose Island released Gillian. A bunch of bottles were sold at Summerhill at a fraction of the price days before it was supposed to be officially released. I went the next morning hoping to score a deal. They had realized it and refused to sell me the bottle even though it was still on the shelf. Whatever. A bunch of people reported buying 4 packs of KBS for the price of a single bottle weeks after that.

Shit don't change.
