Import Report

There are a few new imports on the shelves (or soon to be) at the LCBO and The Beer Store - here's a quick round-up:

  • Carlsberg is now available in Canada as an imported version for the first time in 40 years. Brewed domestically by Moosehead/McAuslan for the past 4 years, and by Labatt and Carling O'Keefe in the years prior, this month will see the Danish version arriving here in distinctive green bottles and other formats.

  • Originally released here last fall but getting a big push now for the spring and summer months, Grolsch Premium Blond is a 4% lager available in 500 ml cans exclusively at the LCBO.

  • Several beers in the long-anticipated US micros release will be arriving at the LCBO this month, with all but one being new year-round general list items:
    • Sam Adams Summer Ale ($12.65 / 6x355 ml) - one-time release
    • Anchor Steam ($10.35 / 6x355 ml)
    • Rogue Dead Guy Ale ($13.95 / 6x355 ml)
    • Southern Tier IPA ($12.00 / 6x355 ml)
    These will be joined by Dogfish Head 60-Minute IPA later this year.

  • Also coming soon to the LCBO are the following, all available initially as one-off releases, but with the potential for becoming general list products:
    • Ursus Premium (LCBO 74450) - from Romania
    • Cisk Lager (LCBO 71316) - from Malta
    • Nektar Pivo (LCBO 75309) - from Bosnia
