Thanks for the heads up, I've like their beers in the past. Will check out at least half of these.

Same, solid brewery, especially their stouts and porters- luckily this release seems to be mostly that.

A bunch of holiday packs appeared on the LCBO website today. Some under gift & sampler packs but more to be found if you search keywords (stout, porter...) and view them with "new arrivals" first. New Welly stout pack with 2 glasses and the Collective Arts Origin of Darkness collab with Bellwoods is on there too. The usual suspects as far as I can see for Belgium, though.

There was a really good Belgian mix pack that came out last year (I think?) and hope that comes out again.

I think I recall that one, it had some Dupont variants, a lambic, and a couple other interesting ones I'd never tried before.

I'm also hoping to see some Samuel Smith's and O'Hara's back, I drank a lot of that nitro stout from the latter last year.

It was definitely a nice surprise. Going back through my notes I think it was actually two years ago, but the past few years have definitely blurred together lol

I think the others in there were from Het Anker, but I never took a picture of the box. I just have a bunch of check-ins for various Belgian beers around that time.

Awesome! Fingers crossed they bring back the Cuvee Van de Keizer as well - I really do miss that beer.

Yes, it's great, but also a huge sugar bomb. It's lovely and all, but I have a hard time finishing the 750ml bottle, so it's got to be shared. Anyways, I dont think I've ever had a bad beer from Het Anker.....maybe some of the weaker ones in their christams mix pack, which were thankfully replaced in the last few years.


What I really want to know is whether the LCBO is planning to bring back any glassware this year. The last 5 or so years there's been very little of that. Would love a good Chimay or Rochefort glass.

This is listed on the website, maybe it’s coming this year?
