3 pistols beer in particular,good stuff but i cant seem to find it.anyone sell 3 pistols,maudite ect in calgary?
Ah, I see. You have a Crowfoot liquor store out there, though. If you ask them nicely, they will probably bring it in for you (although you may have to take a case of it - not much of a problem, right?). Same with any other liquor store (in fact, if you buy it regularly, they should be glad to stock it for you).
Otherwise, any of the majors in Calgary, like Co-op, Crowfoot, Highlander, Willow Park, or Zyn, carry it. Also, many smaller independents like Inglewood Wine, Kensington Wine Market, J. Webb, or Bin 905 also stock it readily. Shouldn't be an issue finding it.
Also, as an aside: good choice. Trois Pistoles (please don't call it "3 pistols," the name refers to the town which refers to three towers, not guns) is one of the best Canadian beers ever made. You have some taste, sir.
Kensington Wine Market says they have Trois Pistoles - appears only if you search on Trois??
Also Blanche de Chambly and La Fin de Monde -search on Unibroue.
KWM's online inventory is usually pretty accurate but you should call to be sure.
If you search on the Alberta Liquor Guide site, there are no listings for any Unibroue product.
Maybe Alberta isn't bringing it in anymore.
No, no. You can't rely on Connect Logistics for everything. Alberta-liquor-guide.com only lists products distributed by Connect (and not restricted items).
Connect controls the distribution of imported products and all spirits, coolers, and wine in Alberta. Domestic beer can be distributed by other vendors, such as BDL, which carries domestic Molson and Labatts products, or Big Rock.
This is the case for Unibroue, which is owned and distributed by Sleemans (Sapporo, but still domestic). I assure you, it is readily available.
