Wow this is pretty cool. I bought a bottle of the dry hopped pale ale back in October when we made a day trip to the US. unfortunately it was over a year old (bottled in summer 2012) but it was still really good. I imagine it would be awesome fresh.

I am going to stop buying beer in anticipation of this


do we have any idea how much of each is coming? Are people going to be lining up to get the breakfast stout etc?

For an LCBO that is moving away from full 6-packs due to shelf space, a brewery feature of ONLY six-packs (and a 4-pack) is interesting. Wonder what beers will be bumped off the shelves for this :wink:

(That said, I'm pretty damn excited for this feature)

Anyone know what kinds of volumes we're dealing with here? Brewery features normally come with quite a bit, don't they?

Obviously what I really want to know is if I have to line up to get some breakfast stout.

I'll be buying the shit out of the Porter, Breakfast, Dirty, and Pale. Not a big fan of the Backwoods but it's still awesome to see it coming to Ontario. Kudos to whoever represents these guys.

Sounds like an awesome $56 two-four! None of this border nazi patrol stuff, OK I'm in.

It also sounds like these could be in-demand enough to come back, amazing the superior reputation this brewery has up here.

Planning to go hard on the Breakfast Stout, and to a lesser extend the Porter. Without a doubt two beers I'd love to have in my fridge all winter long.

Singles gonna be okay? I'm not big on scotch ales, but I'll gladly tick them off.

Okay, hats off to the LCBO. You've got to give it to these commie bastards, as of late....
