$16 ain't cheap that is fo sho, but, it is something like 12% cheaper per ml than most Bellwood's special releases.

That is true, Nickel Brook does offer better price/volume ratios than other breweries including Bellwoods for special release beers.

I still think the 4 packs of Bolshevik Bastard are the best deal in Ontario for great beer.

Took this quote from another topic. I find these two beer absolutely incredible. Part of me would love to have them available more often....and part of me is scared of that happening. :)

I was at the brewery today hoping to pick up either of those beers, I was told they will release in early March. On the upside I had the opportunity to try their excellent root beer for the first time.

Best root beer out there. I've had somewhere between 300-400 root beers and it's #1. Phillips Intergalactic in BC is damn good too.

After tax, a tad under $10 for a 750.

They just posted about this today. Winey is now in stock at a lot of Toronto-area LCBOs (and a handful in the Ottawa region). $15/per bottle.

Yeah I saw that and just got back from the LCBO with a couple bottles.

Now I've got a 2013, 2014, and 2015 to enjoy back to back.

Immodest was released today at the brewery. I'm assuming we'll see it in the LCBO very shortly.

I'm pretty sure I read somewhere that immodest was going to be 5$ for a tAllboy at lcbo. Seems high to me, but just throwing it out to those who have had it( I havnt). Would it be worth $5?

Absolutely. Comparing that to their Winey Bastard at $14.95 for 750ml, $5 for 473ml of (in my opinion) a far better beer is an absolute bargain.

Think of it this way, if you saw a double IPA in a 650ml bomber for $8, would you think it expensive? I'd guess not. This is cheaper.

Can't wait to try Immodest for the first time, $5 sounds like a steal considering I just paid $9 for Robohop. Also Nickel Brook's Maple Porter is now in tallboys at the LCBO for $3/can.

Or compare it to Bellwoods 6.50 iipa 500ml bottles. Nicklebrook and Great Lakes are pricing their cans well.

Regardless of price, previous versions of immodest have been outstanding.
