I'm Happy with this. Glad DuPont is back, will be buying lots this summer. Jaipur in small bottles, over in England they've downsized their bottles as well, but didn't drop the price. I suppose it'll be the same here. Always love the smokestack series as well

I'm pretty happy with this list too, I'll likely buy everything at least once. Gahan Blueberry and Anchor Lager are probably the most boring picks, but I haven't had either and both look good enough to try. I'm just surprised they picked that Anchor beer from the remaining lineup. Go West! IPA would've been my pick.

Ritterguts....that's some original gangsta shit there. This is what a gose is supposed to taste like.

Hope it is reasonably priced like most German beer at the LCBO.

Oud Beersel! Bought a case a long time ago that I've been very slowly rationing. Happy to re-sock.

Wow, if Dupont is $2.75 that would be incredible. It'll be time to stock up.
