If I had to guess, it is because Ralph took the time to make personal contacts with these guys at various American beer festivals. And was persistent. If they can put a face to a name, then maybe they don't mind going through the hassle of a small order to a good beer bar in Toronto.

It strikes me that the Opimian Society in its early form did for wine in Canada what we are complaining is not being done for beer. Maybe all that needs creating is a copycat model for fine beer.

So if the agents provide crap beer for a product call or the same thing year after year that is the extent of the selection available to choose from.
The comment above from "Beer Geek" that about women show the ignorance of the commentator. I know many women who know a great deal about beer styles and taste profiles associated with beer.
I am fairly certain that the LCBO buyer fits that profile.
Maybe you've just not met the right girl.....
