"We do not have an exact release date/time for this product as yet. You can continue to monitor the site or select the 'notify me when back in stock' button on the product page, if available.If you are not signed up, I would encourage you to sign up for a myLCBO account for information about upcoming product releases: https://mylcbo.com/"

:roll:
Thanks. I have zero confidence that they will send a notification promptly when the beer becomes available online, but I can't spend the whole month clicking refresh on their website either so I guess I'll just need to roll the dice. Complete joke.

Exactly. It will be online and gone before they send out the notice, and whenever it does go online I won't be available.

The Goose Island Toronto website now says it’ll be available at LCBO on Dec. 6th. We’ll see!

Called up Goose Island and sure enough they still had the BCS releases still on tap today. '20, '21 and '22. So I sauntered down for a sample or two ($9/glass). Maybe they thought the beer would sell out earlier as it's not on the menu and I had to ask for it. Either way, still tasty.

In typical LCBO fashion I was able to add these to my cart and pay for it 5 minutes before 10am.

Now I await the cancellation email because they allowed me to do this.

Their site manages to remain broken and bad despite the number of redesigns and years they have had to improve it... Needless to say, BCBS appears to be sold out except according to the experience delivered on the search results page.

I was able to snag two. It sold out really fast, way quicker than last year. Assuming there are no site issues, of course.

When I ordered there was just over 1500 bottles, so I'm quite surprised it sold out that fast.

Yeah, I saw that too and went back a couple of minutes later and it was gone.

In the past, I seem to recall there being a $50 limit when ordeirng to be shipping to store. 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.

It's not sold out....I was getting the same issue.
Just went back and there are 600+ bottles left now. What a mess.
The beer I wanted to add to get to the $50 threshold is sold out now though, lol.
