Dogfish Head IPA sighting

If you like the stuff, the Front St. LCBO right next to SLM has a few 6-packs. I picked one up.

  1. kingsway lcbo also has IPA

    1. Promises from the LCBO of better supplies this season. Exactly what they said last year...See it, buy it.

      1. I'm looking at the LCBO inventory - Summerhill has 50 cases, Queen's Quay has 40 cases - I've never run out before, is there something I don't know? Should I be stocking up?!?

          I guess not. I just recalled comments of lack of inventory, thought I'd pass it along.

            dfh60minipa is in reasonable circulation. i want the other ones though....this ones just a touch too much bitter for me.

              It's not my favourite...I like a hoppy beer, but this one is a bit much.

              They also had Anchor Steam, for $11.50 per 6-pack, which is a steal. For whatever reason, I always see it with a bottle or two missing. I don't go to the big LCBOs too often.

              OK, thanks GG. It's good to know I won't have to settle for Tankhouse all summer.

              PSP, Beer Bistro carries a lot of brews from Dogfish, as you may already know. They have super-high alcohol levels, though, and some are quite bitter. The "Indian Brown Ale" is nice.

                i was thinking more for purchase to drink at home... sometimes the raison d'etre comes around but i haven't seen it recently.

                ah well... buffallo road trip soon...

          2. No real shortage here in Ottawa, but unfortunately the Southern Tier IPA has gone missing. I miss that one. DH60min is good too however. Hope they continue to bring in more American micros.

              According to a post made by the importer over on Bar Towel recently, ST IPA should be back in stock in the next couple of weeks.

            2. I actually thought you meant a real dogfish head. And I thought, well, I'm not sure I like that very much...

              I never get the acronyms.
