MANIFESTO is on shelves now, but it's not in the big 750ml bottle. When did it change to a 473ml bottle in the box?

Weihenstephaner Vitus is in stores (I've seen it, bought it, & enjoyed it!), but STILL not listed on the LCBO's site. :(

According to Jeff of Quench Imports Sam Smith Winter Welcome will NOT be here this year. No 3 pack plus glass either, just the single bottles of Organic Chocolate Stout. Come on LCBO get your act together......Bloody nonsense.

Well lcbo, that's about 50-75$ less you'll be getting from me this season.

Sad news. If they needed to pick an Xmas beer to discontinue (and yes, I realize the process is not this straightforward), personally I would have went with Bah Humbug. Winter Welcome has always been one of my favourite winter warmers.

spoke to a main beer guy at Summerhill, where I do my workouts. They are taking out 10 beers immediately and losing that big shelfspace in front of tasting bar. This is all in favour of hard liquour. Beer does not bring in the big bucks, particularly with xmas season.

Ridiculous. If they're going to start pulling this shit on us, it's time to open up beer retailing to private companies, otherwise we'll continue to get screwed over since beer doesn't make them the same money as wine and spirits. I'm sick of hearing the social responsibility BS, because let's face it, the government is in the business of making money off of liquor, and this is clearly a profit focused move. Anyway, rant over. It just gets extremely frustrating sometimes.

I saw, thanks. last year it came in a 750ml bomber for $13? Paranormal Imperial Pumpkin Ale used to come in a box and bottle.

Over a thousand when I ordered this morning.

Expensive, but a hell of a lot of beers we don’t get here, and I’m liking the idea of returning to classic styles for a month as I’m feeling a little hopped/soured out (on my own accord mind you).
