Also FYI LCBO has stopped taking any returns during lockdown. I had planned to return some rather stale beer xmas gifts but was told by the clerk to to hold on to them until lockdown ends... could be a while.



I see that Orval has been listed in Guelph now :).
Unfortunate about returns as I’ve got a bottle of gin to return that would have gotten me a dozen or so bottles.


I missed it, sigh. Maybe more will come? Or online inventory?

Managed to grab both beers and some Orval at the Bloor Kingsway and Weston stores. Thanks for the heads up, though! There were only a few Bible Belts and less than a dozen Oh Fudges left when I went, and I grabbed the last bottles of Orval at Bloor Kingsway. Cheers!

I grabbed the last 3 bottles from The downtown store last night. 48 Sold in under 2 days. Hopefully Speedvale gets some in, they usually have good stock of Belgian beers

The amount of Orval selling through the LCBO is unbelievable. There are many stores that have had people buying it by the case. If this kind of pattern of high sales continues, the board will be more likely to want to have it carried year round.

I’d like to agree....but never trust the LCBO to do anything logical. The speed and number of bottles selling is really something though.
