And Destihl comes to Ontario! Would not have guessed that.

i could not tell canning date but was guessing it was already months old on the shelf. so hazy yes but not fresh. Besides GTA does world class hazy now
I bought one of these have to admit, it was pretty gosh-darn good.

Haze of the Dead was indeed very good. Sure, there's equivalent and better stuff here too, but it's still nice to try some US stuff. $3.75 is a pretty good price too, considering equivalent DIPAs here are often $5 and up.

What's really exceptional is that Peche though. What a fantastic beer to have available; I really hope it's here for good, or a while, or even seasonally; more than just once anyway. I can't think of many better non-BA imperial stouts available right now, at least in the LCBO.

Gleemer Imports asks not to ask how or why 3 Fonteinen Pruim Belle De Louvain (plum) is on the shelf at the Laird LCBO for $47.

I didn't think that was allowed. I assumed it was just part of a listing trickling in. Though, now that you mention it, it does seem to make much more sense.

Not a bad idea, but if I buy a $47 bottle of no doubt delicious lambic, I'm spending way beyond my budget. Planning to get some of the more common lambics in the coming months.

Landlord looks to be back :)

I was in an LCBO in town the other day and saw one lonely bottle of Timoth Taylor Landlord, so of course I grabbed it. Thought it was a bit strange there was only the one, but after checking the LCBO app it’s back on there, and rolling out quickly. Happy days. One of my all time favourite beers. Perfect spring beer

Thanks for the update. I had one bottle left from the last release, but now I can stock up.

Nice, thx.
Noticed a new listing for aventinus eisbock as well.
That's the way she goes. Sometimes she goes, sometimes it doesn't. She didn't go. That's the way she goes.

Kind of thought that I would be eating crow, but after lots of Peter Wolfing, Jart-Elle has an LCBO listing (https://www.lcbo.com/en/jart-elle-oude-kriek-29597).

$11.95, kriek, 6%.

I picked up a couple at the LCBO, I thought it may have been a brewery exclusive, so that was a nice surprise. And was glad to see it wasn’t citra, Simcoe and two others, it was citra and three others, including the Citrageddon 8% DIPA. Can’t go wrong with GLB!
