With all the news of beer in Ontario grocery stores, is there any way to find out WHAT beers they are stocking? Is there anything there that's NOT in the BeerStore or LCBO?

You know, I had the same thoughts. I think once its in the hands of a grocery store, it's effectively their inventory, not the LCBO's. I think its very unlikely that we'll find something in a grocery store, and not an LCBO. My gut feel is that most grocery stores, at least initially, are going to cater to volume, not to quality and will be at the minimum threshold of craft beer allowed. Hopefully I'm wrong!

I just came across an article that lists some of the brews that'll be available at Loblaws grocers. Yeah, nothing that we can't get elsewhere, but at least some decent craft options. Lists at http://bensbeerblog.com/2015/12/11/loblaws-set-to-launch-beer-sales/

@Ralphus is site undergoing maintenance? My added drinks are not appearing
as matching to any store locations

Must be some glitch since Fat Tug 441782 is no longer showing availability yet is on the shelf in at
least 3 locations and I picked up bottles from Dan at Robertson Rd LCBO on Saturday. In fact ALL my
list is showing not available.

LCBO are working to resolve problem as all third party apps were barred
from accessing site inventory

Any idea when things will be back to normal? My lists show nothing. When I do not log in there are
limited locations for certain products but nowhere near accurate according to the lcbo website. Hope
this is up and running soon since it's my preferred choice.

Thanks for notifying me of the issue. We have been blocked, similar to a number of other sites. In the meantime I have updated the script which updates product quantities and the system is currently updating. The home page quantities should be accurate by Monday morning and emails about matches should go out normally once more.

However, if you click on a product and want to see the closest stores which have inventory - that is currently not working. I will work with the LCBO to resolve this, stay tuned.
