Yes and when you buy twenty-four you save about five bucks, or almost a buck off a four pack which is a coolness. This beer never dies and you can keep it for years.

$2.40 for a 330ml of 8.8% stout


I've always just passed over this without giving it a second thought, I guess i better pick up a bottle to try.


I distinctly remember the first time I picked this up from a Scarborough LCBO... I thought hey, I've never had a brew from Shrilanka... And then Damn, this is pretty good!

I like the Trois Pistol as well... Prefer it over La Fin Du Monde, which seems to take the spot light.

That is a bargain....but not that cheap here. I pay minimum $7 for a 1L squealer of(usually) middle of the road beer.


I think Mill Street was up to $12 before I left TO, but I'm pretty sure Granit was still $10. Their dry stout is second to none, the dry hop ESB was good, but the Hopping Mad was even better. That was almost 5 years ago. :o

Here in Kelowna, Tree does Growlers for $10 and grunts for $6.

This may sound out of place, but Pistoles and Sinha are both amazing beers when you're grilling outside in the summer The fullness of the flavors is paradoxically quenching.

Was at Block 3 the other day. Growler fills for the beers currently on offer range from $10 to $13.
