Founders coming to Ontario

  1. Yes, Pino confirms Centennial in the warehouse now, and that other Founders have already been tested in the "labs of science that protect us at the LCBO".

  2. I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for any of the seasonal releases to show up in the near future, but I wouldn't be surprised to see the Pale Ale, Porter, Red's Rye or Dirty Bastard arrive in the coming months.

    This reminds me of Brooklyn and Southern Tier.
    I still hate the LCBO. But easier access to anything craft I'll take.
     
  4. Red's Rye isn't year round anymore in bottles. It's now in their limited release category (ala Imperial Stout). Sucks because it's one of their best!
     
  5. Did anybody LOL at Dirty Bastard in the LCBO? I mean come on.
     
  6. I can only imagine the price tag for this...
     
  7. same or lower than in most US states, as LCBO is the largest buyer in the world
     
  8. Why do we pay $13.55 for a 6 of Brooklyn Lager then?

  9. Ummm... what? Really? Yeah... it is 10.50$ in NYS, it isn't going to be less, it isn't going to be the same. You can bank on this being 14 - 16$.
     
  10. It will be around 13 or so....same as our locals
     
  11. Pretty much. If Samuel Adams products are $7.99 at Wegmans in Buffalo and $13.60 here and Founders is $10.50 there then.........LCBO minimum price point rules.

    Obviously when it comes in if you see it then back up a truck, if you are a fan, cause it wont stick around long. If you dont live in the GTA then you gotta hope your main store gets more than 4 - 6 packs.

    PS I think northyorksammy was being sarcastic, at least I hope so....

    here I go again
    should be good pricing on next Founders' (multiple beers) they bring in
     
  13. Errr this sounds like a general list, so not really any reason to get twitchy about it (though I'm sure some will).

    And Sammy's right, it will be a reasonable price. Are folks expecting an import to be cheaper than the country of origin?

    Folks, we're talking about a couple extra bucks a sixer for brews from one of the best breweries in the world.
    Skip Timmy's for a day and pony up for Founders.
