Too bad the resurgence of West Coast IPAs did not bring back fresh squeezed.

We haven't seen To Ol in a while, have we? I hope this is a sign they're going to bring back their bigger beers.

Looks like it has mostly/all been added to the site. Availability should be rolling out shortly.

Anyone had experience with the Grandauer Weissbier?

I'm a big fan of original Schneider Weisse, for reference. Since it's no longer available, it'd be nice to find a good replacement.

Jolly Pumpkin Oro is tasting great. A nice bargain at $4.90 per can if you consider this was $12.50 (750 ml) back in 2017. I might have to load up.

Just picked some up. I hope it's as good as so many have said.

Tangential, but just experienced by far the most helpful LCBO employee in my entire adult life.

24 years as an employee, second day as assistant manager. Hopefully he becomes CEO one day and has no tolerance for stupidity. Though that would mean a huge need to re-hire.

Oro is half my style, and interesting, but not my favourite.

Bloody hell! The LCBO IPA aging program has succeeded again!

The Deschutes Haze Tron was canned December 2023!
