It's been some time since I've had one, but if it's still as good as it used to be, it's a fragrant, luscious ale but not in the IPA sense - it's more smooth than sharp, malty, caramelly. I can't really think of a good comparison... think of a nice, smooth, somewhat toasty English brown ale and then crank up the malt and caramel a bit, and crank up the hops just enough to keep it clean and balanced.

Agree with the above. I never liked these guys but if you are looking for something relatively uncontroversial, it might be for you.

They've sold their Ontario production facility because of low demand. This is likely old inventory.

I was just on the website and they state that delivery is only within the GTA for the Grasshopper and Traditional Ale. Any update on this? I am in Guelph.

The page that the OP links to says that the beers are available across Ontario, but then the individual beer pages say GTA-only. Then if you click the "All Products" link at the bottom of the page you find other beers, other pack sizes, and sometimes two pages for the same beer with different prices because one's for AB and one's for ON. So I'm guessing that they have two market channel for the same beers and just did a bad job of differentiating them on their website, and the "GTA-only" is supposed to mean the ON channel and is just a really bad choice of wording. Or maybe it used to be GTA-only and they bumped it to ON-wide and forgot to update the beer pages. (These are the sorts of things that can happen when a business is run by humans.) In any case, I just added what I wanted to my cart and checked out to see what would happen. I also picked the free shipping option that's supposed to be for "major cities" and it didn't say anything about needing to verify that. The only odd thing was that it added a small "additional charge" to a couple of the beers, and they were ones that weren't listed on the OP's linked page. But the order went through, the discount worked, the shipping was free, the overall pricing was good, and the can deposits were included - only tax was added. And no bad-news email so far, so it looks like all is well.

I got a 12 pack of Traditional, 4 Citradelic, 4 Warthog, and 4 Scottish Heavy for $57.76 + $5.72 tax.

I don't see how it's likely to be old inventory. That would assume that they stopped selling the beer before they stopped producing it, and why would any business do that? The fact is they're still selling to AB and ON, regardless of where they're producing it.

They have been overproducing. The facility is sold. This is step one of liquidating the inventory.

So I looked into this. They sold their Etobicoke facility, not their "Ontario" facility. They also have a facility in Toronto. Their sales were up in 2020, and their stock price has trended upwards through 2021. They're using the proceeds from the sale of the Etobicoke facility to reduce their lease, strengthen their capital position, and increase their IT budget to improve productivity. I didn't find anything about overproducing or liquidating; in fact they're still producing in Toronto. I still don't see how it's likely they'd have "old inventory" sitting around. So if you have any supportable info on that please share. Thanks.

The Toronto "facility" is a nano brewpub in Liberty Village.

They're selling the production facility because they lost a ton of money. Of course their books look better now.

Yes, selling a facility "makes the books look better". But so do rising sales and stock prices. I think they're doing the right things and will be around for a while, which I'm happy about because they make great beer.

I was interested in this offer but wasn't sure if I'd qualify for the free delivery option.

I'm not saying the company is going out of business. I'm saying this inventory is being sold off because they're closing the facility that's been making and storing it and they need to liquidate the beer that's in stock.

It's unfortunate they sell online only in ON and AB.

The one in Vancouver has been selling cheaper than BC Liquor Stores most of the time, and especially when they carry old stock. I've been patiently waiting for the next AmEx Shop Small.

Yes, you're saying that, and implying that it's old enough to be a concern, but declining to provide any support, so it looks like you're making an assumption but stating it as fact.

did we ever figure out what "local delivery" means? GTA only? I'm delivering to ottawa, but i'm not going to go through the hassle of figuring out if that's local. that should be easy/simple on their end. It says ON, so I'm assuming it is.... Let's see if they cancel...
