This, combined with Bellwoods Double Jutsu's availability at the lickbo, is damn good news for IPA lovers in the GTA.
Absolutely agree. Both these beers are on a slightly higher level than any of the other NEIPA at LCBO in my opinion. I’ve been buying lots of the double Jutsu in perticular. I was a bit surprised, as I haven’t been overly impressed with the normal Jutsu for a a few years now.

All of this, and the fact that they're pretty damn fresh. July 22nd Double Jutsu and July 16th Holy Trinity at my local.

O'Hara's Irish Nitro Stout. I've always loved their bottled Irish stout when we get it here, so really looking forward to the nitro version. Hopefully it's a year round listing.

Henderson x Rush Canadian Golden Ale

Members of the iconic Canadian band Rush teamed up with Henderson Brewing Company to create something deliciously Canadian, featuring the Starman from Rush's 2112 album on the label. The golden ale inside, made with Canadian ingredients, has a piney citrus hop character, with a dry spicy finish from the use of rye grains.

This is selling like crazy!!

Flying Dog Gonzo Imperial Porter

Back in and showing stock. Definitely buying more this time.

I'm almost sure it was more than $3.80 a bottle last time? Didn't it come in a 6 pack?

It was $5 or thereabouts and I bought lots. I'll definitely buy more at this price point.

Was $4.95 in singles. Just checked my online order. Hopefully this will come back online.

Wow, that’s a great beer and a steal at the new low price.
I’ve still got two I’ve been holding onto from last year. Time to drink them :)

That's the way she goes. Sometimes she goes, sometimes it doesn't. She didn't go. That's the way she goes.

Are you joking? That thing will fly off the shelves!

Hoping it comes in a six-pack, cause my lovelies at the BO always forget that scanning a single bottle does not give them the price of an enire six-pack.....until they notice there's something funny with their inventory.

Probably referring more to the racial discrimination issues the brewery faced than the beer itself.

Available at LCBO. Perhaps part of an as yet unannounced Halloween release?
