I enjoyed a pack over the weekend. Fresh, bitter…IPA.

Distribution of this the Karma pack was a little disappointing, didn't show up in any of the LCBOs I regularly visit and doesn't seem to be available for online ordering. Timothy Taylor Landlord seems to be disappearing quickly too, I swear I'd seen some available at my local but alas it was gone by Saturday. Which one of you cleared out the Courtice LCBO? lol

I found that, too. Seems to be mostly at tier-1 stores, with much less tier-2s.

Me, too. There is a tier-1 not too far away, but the closest to me are all tier-3s and tier-2s.

You okay bro?

Even with limited reading comprehension where would it have suggested that?

If my eyes didn’t deceive me, I think I just saw the Vim&Vigor is coming to the LCBO. Happy days.

They've gone and gentrified makgeolli! lol

I'd actually like to try this, I have fond memories of drinking makgeolli in the countryside of SK. You could buy it from little carts on the side of hiking trails and whatnot.

Yeah, me too. I visited once many years ago for a friend's wedding and remember having that.
