Same story in the two Guelph stores that have it. Lots of stock of everything,besides the black.


Picked up some Mikkeller beers in Guelph last Novemberish. Recently back in the same LCBO (Speedvale) for the first time since then I was surprised to see most of them still on the shelves, though now on sale. The Cream Ale was 3.60, k:rlek 3.75.

Mmm... 8 month old beer (stored at room temp under fluorescent lights to boot!). If they cut the prices to half that, maybe the alcoholics and university kids would buy it up.

Actually no alcoholics can even shop at the LCBO because their pricing prevents the abuse of alcohol. This assumes that people earning over 100K are never alcoholics, and that non-weathy alcoholics cannot steal beg or borrow just like anyone else with a compelling addiction, and...

hey look - a unicorn!!
