It's not off topic if it's about beer

Don't even get me started on how stupid this whole vintage version is... I suspect there was just a bunch of unsold bottles last year they couldn't move so they boxed it, "cellared" it, and tried again this year. :roll:

I was a very surprised and happy camper last night. Stopped in to Kelsey Drive to pick up a couple of Old Engine Oils, and came across a bottle of YB's Crikey, and a load of the Muskoka winter beard. Needless to say, the Crikey is now MINE! *LOL* Also, the wife and I split a bottle of the winter beard - very tasty :)

I'm sure the Winter Beard will be all gone before I get home

Not so sure about that Mike. Maybe there is limited stock(?), but I'd say it's a pretty niche item for even a beer lover. For example, they still have a couple of bottles of Oddity out in Mt Pearl, and you can still get the Harvest Ale out in Long Pond. I would imagine that their stock of an Imperial chocolate stout with cranberries might last as well.

"Wells IPA" now at the NLC. $3.62 for 500ml. Only $2.15 at the LCBO in Ontario. Is this the same beer that used to be in a 2 litre plastic bottle in Ontario a few years ago?

Not much love for it on BA.

You are on top of the new listings Frank!

To put this IPA in perspective... it has similar ratings to the notorious Waterloo IPA :(

Yup, that's the old cheepo IPA that used to be in many other larger formats (I seem to remember a big king can like Colt 45 at some point too). It's actually cheeper at the Beer Store when you buy an 8-pack (around $2 a can).

This is a beer for homeless people. I don't know why it's so expensive in NL and I really don't think it's even worth the "tick." It's even more notorious than Waterloo IPA for being a poor beer and is only slightly more of an IPA than Keiths or India Beer.
