Priced $3.50 per 330 ml bottle. Bottled Nov 2012. "Enjoy within 25 years." Two full cases on the shelf, minus the two bottles I picked up. Get 'em quick!


Nice deal!

I picked up half a dozen bottles this morning and it was pretty much cleared out.

That's ridiculously quick, haha...there must be a kettle of beer vultures circling that store at all times, waiting to swoop in for the deals...

I know one for sure! It doesn't take much to convince me to visit the LCBO, but this wildcard clearance section at my local makes it a weekly necessity.

I went to Crossroads last night and the De Molen seem to be all gone.

My wife is heading through Vaughn later today and will stop in. Anyone see any other deals to be had?

I was there last night and there's no more clearance beer. It's really rare when it pops up.

Kaaad Spring Ale, RiverWalker, Age of Raisin and Renaissance Tribute are all in a big basket In the Clearance section. No prices on any of them. Not the usual sort of stuff you find on clearance there as they were all on the regular shelf last week. I suspect the Renaissance brews are holding up Ok but I would wonder about the other two as they must be getting a little long in the tooth. I was going to ask about prices but the place was as usual for 10pm on a Saturday night and I figured the staff didn't need any hassle from a beer geek right now. None of them interested me at the regular price and I doubt if a bit off would sway me. If any of these were favorites of your it might be your last chance to grab a few though.

You must have missed it. I got 3 bottles of it tonight. It was found on the opposite shelf, to the one they usually put beers on (i.e., they usually put the beers on the clearance shelf along with liquors, but this time I found De Molen on the clearance shelf that has the wines). I left one more bottle as a cuertesy for someone else to try. But who knows how many more in the back. Let me tell you, ever since "the beer guy" for this store transferred over to Wilson/Dufferin these dudes at Weston don't know what the heck is going on with their stock . The manager seems totally numb and half incompetent. Its the Wild Wild Weston.

I assumed that stuff in the basket at Crossroads was just regular price. And I agree their beer section is poorly managed. Wish they would put some of the good stuff on the cooled shelves.

I was at Wilson & Dufferin last week and they had a bunch of stuff marked down at about 20% off including Calabaza Blanca, Kaad, Renaissance Barley Wine, Charlevoix Hibernus and several others.

FYI, we are now the agents for De Molen and have received our first order of 3 of their beers. Just working out pricing right now but we'll let you know about availability shortly.
