So I pre-stashed a couple of other bottles in my cart to get over that limit. Went to check out and was told that the availability of one of my items had changed. I was sure I missed out, but turns out it was one of the Pohjala stouts that I added that was the problem and I was eventually able to get the order through! Insane how fast they went.
Yeah, I picked up a bottle of Gouden Carolus Christmas to get up to the $50.

That's so weird. I already got a pickup notice for it, I guess it's just sitting in stock at my local 'BO.

Anyone received an email in regards to being able to pick up their BCBS order yet? Still waiting. First year ordering so I'm not sure what the typical turnaround time is.

No, not yet. I checked the last time I ordered BCBS online. In 2020 I ordered on Friday Nov. 27 and picked up my beer on Tuesday Dec. 1. I missed it last year, but they do seem to be slower this year. For reference, I am in downtown Toronto.

Thanks for the reply. I set the pick-up location for Keele/Lawrence (by my work).

Nothing yet for me. Although I did get a pickup notice for the single bottle of beer that got me up to the $50 minimum :D

Just received the email this morning that they're ready for pick-up; assuming you guys will see the same shortly if not already.

Interesting about the bottles being back in stock, I guess they are cancelled orders?
