There are a few new imports on the shelves (or soon to be) at the LCBO and The Beer Store – here’s a quick round-up:
Carlsberg is now available in Canada as an imported version for the first time in 40 years. Brewed domestically by Moosehead/McAuslan for the past 4 years, and by Labatt and Carling O’Keefe in the years prior, this month will see the Danish version arriving here in distinctive green bottles and other formats.
Originally released here last fall but getting a big push now for the spring and summer months, Grolsch Premium Blond is a 4% lager available in 500 ml cans exclusively at the LCBO.
Several beers in the long-anticipated US micros release will be arriving at the LCBO this month, with all but one being new year-round general list items:
Sam Adams Summer Ale ($12.65 / 6×355 ml) – one-time release
Anchor Steam ($10.35 / 6×355 ml)
Rogue Dead Guy Ale ($13.95 / 6×355 ml)
Southern Tier IPA ($12.00 / 6×355 ml)
These will be joined by Dogfish Head 60-Minute IPA later this year.
Also coming soon to the LCBO are the following, all available initially as one-off releases, but with the potential for becoming general list products:
