    Does anyone know which limited run Cantillon bottles they still have available? Specifically, are Groseille and Tyrnilambic Baie D'Argousier still around?

    Finland isn't in Scandinavia. Try the Europe forum.

    Based on linguistic heritage Finland and Turkey should share a forum.

    Turkish is to Finno-Ugric languages as Romanian is to Romance languages - the bastard cousin.

    I had Baie d’Argousier last summer (375ml bottle for 12 euro). I got the impression that there weren't very many bottles remaining. Groseille is long gone. The pub came under new ownership last year, and now they focus almost entirely on German beers with a few (usually awful) Finnish microbrews and a handful of Belgians. Due to the new ownership, I don't anticipate that any of the One Pint Pub Cantillons will be brewed again. However, it's still worth a visit. It's the only place I know of that consistently has fresh Sahti, which they serve straight from a barrel in the fridge.

    You may have better luck getting one of the Pikkulintu Cantillons (Viskilambic and Olutravintola Pikkulintu). Definitely make sure you stop at Pikkulintu if you're visiting Helsinki - it's easily the best craft beer bar in the city.

    You may be able to find the Tyrnilambic (Baie d’Argousier). I remember seeing a few bottles in the fridge quite recently. On the other hand, if you're interested in trying Spanish (micro)brews there should be still plenty of those available.

    Back in August I had the Tyrnilambic and they told me it was the last one...maybe it was to make me feel special but don't get your hopes up! There weren't any other Cantillons left that I saw either...

    Maybe this should just be the Nordic forum?
