I like it! Better than I remember previous summer releases. It's got a nice variety of styles going on.

so the bernardus wit and Brooklyn Sorachi Ace is a separate thing eh? All I care about is the Brooklyn Sorachi Ace :/

we might as well have had a Thornbridge brewey feature, I think I've tried most of their lineup through the lcbo over the last few years

We've only received a fraction of their 197 beers... but still, we have got a bunch lately. :)

Bier du Mars is my fave of theirs (as is their saison).

Considering it's that Gose, I'd consider it to be sour. The last bottle I had was like salty lemon juice concentrate (in a good way?).

I'm so looking forward to buying some JP without a border jump. And really hoping to stock up on that Gueuze. I know you can buy it around town pretty easily (Volo, Thirsty and Miserable always has bottles), but it'll be nice to have a supply of gueuze when I want a sour!

Only the Sam Smith Apricot is new to me. However, for a historically weak release, this looks quite good. I will be stocking up on the JP, LTM and St. Louis.

That Lindemans is actually kind of a steal at that price. I realize it's no Cantillon, but wow.

That Lindeman's price is on par with USA from what I remember, it is only 2.5% ABV

Why do we equate the value of a beer to be directly proportional to it's abv? In Ontario this seems to be more prevalent than other places. Maybe it's that we don't get any high quality, low abv beers in the province or maybe it's just the cost associated with brewing a higher abv beer? Several times Ive heard someone say that charging 'x' dollars for a certain beer wouldn't work because the abv isn't high enough.

Just curious if anyone has some ideas on why this is? I mean, I'm all for keeping prices as low as possible for good beer, but it seems skewed to me.
I don't always drink beer ... because sometimes my friends win and we have to go to macro-only establishments.

that's an impressive price on the Jolly Pumpkin. I do believe their 750s are all priced over $10 in the US. Dare I say this is what happens when Shelton Brothers are cut out of the equation?

Their website says 13 bucks for this specific beer right now. I'm pretty sure it was 12 when I was there over Christmas. So yeah, great price. Hopefully we see more of their stuff soon.

Everyone dancing around about the LCBO bringing in some Jolly Pumpkin should keep this in perspective: You're still paying $10 for a 750ml bottle of witbier.

British descent.

The tax structure on beer in England, which likely influences our own, charges more tax on higher alcohol beers. Ergo, higher alcohol = more expensive. It's an inherited bureaucratic trait that skews our concept of value.
