Remember I asked something similar about LCBO stocking Dominion City? This is how you responded... "Not trying to be dickish, but why don't you just go to the LCBO website and check. I just did. They have no listings."
I've never said the LCBO site was perfect, but my experience with it over the years has generally been good. I think your point is that not seeing a listing doesn't prove the product is not carried somewhere. OK. My question this time is more about not understanding how their system works operationally. I bought the beer in question, and the cashier had no problem scanning it in, so it must be in "the system". So why doesn't it show up when looking for it.
As I typed this, a thought came to mind. I checked my receipt, and search the sites (lcbo.com, and foodanddrink.ca) using the product number. No results. Strange. Maybe I'll be nice guy and let the folks at Longslice no.
Addendum: I've ranted before about the inconsistency in which products are entered. I think this is more of a problem on TBS website, where sometimes on the 'beer name' is used, and not the brewery. Anyway, on my receipt, this beer has a misspelling. It shows as "Lonslice". Sigh.
