LCBO website is showing the closest location with LTM Baltique is in Ottawa- anyone know if this one just sold through quickly, or just slow to distribute? Hopefully the latter since I was meaning to go look for some.

Max I've seen was four stores: Ottawa, Peterbourgh, Toronto, and Mississauga. But its the LCBO, so who knows!?

I hope this means we will start seeing more LTM products in Ontario again. It's been ages since I have seen them here.

Noticed a new listing for Guinness Extra Stout, says it's brewed in Ireland:

https://www.lcbo.com/en/guinness-extra-stout-30575

TBS has long carried Guinness Extra, but it's the Canadian brewed version that never tasted as good to me. Curious to see if this is just a packaging redesign, or if we're getting the actual Ireland brewed version. What I really want is the proper Foreign Export Stout though.

I didn't think Guinness was still made domestically, but this LCBO listing says it's from Ontario. Looks like the one you found is the real stuff.

Sureeee... haha

That one you linked looks like the bottle I occasionally get from TBS after returning empties and I do recall it still says 'brewed in Canada' on the bottle. Based on the LCBO listings, looks like we're getting the "real deal" after all. Might have to do a side-by-side if I can find both.
