Man, remember when Red Racer was such a thing people (including me) would buy a case because it would sell out so quickly. Don’t remember when I had it last, but I remember it being a hot mess.

Our memories may be off but I think you're right. When Red Racer IPA first showed up as a regular listing in Ontario, it was in the 355 mL format. Then it changed to tallboys. I don't think the price was increased at the time, although it has obviously increased in price several times since then.

So this really isn't going to have much of an impact on Ontario consumers. Other than those mixed packs at TBS, I don't know if CC even distributes 355s to Ontario anymore.
