The beer store is showing the 12 pack at a heavy discounted price of $38.00. That is $3.16 per bottle of 650ml Belgian style golden ale imported from Costa Rica.

I checked several stores and seems like they don't have the 12 pack in store. But as per image below, you can ask the associate to get the 12 pack price at long as there is enough inventory. YMMV.

My buddy, who works at the beer store (and has for the last, like, 15 years), responded thusly when I showed him this deal: "Lol wtf. I've never even seen that beer before."

I guess because it is new to Canada and Ontario only? Article dated Aug 2018. Very inexpensive for craft Beer lol.

Not just that - availability checker seems to be broken on the Beer Store website for me, but the app still works. Even in Ontario, it's only in certain stores (not in my buddy's store in Milton)

It's meant to be a belgian golden ale, so unlikely that it'll be real hoppy. I'm gonna pick up a 12 tonight if I get a chance, though, so if nobody has reported back then I'll try one out tonight. :)

In Ontario, this isn't expensive for beer, especially for imported craft beer. These are 650ml bottles for $3.16 per bottle.

The average bottle in a pack of 12/case of 24 is between 330 ml-341ml. If you buy 12 of these, that's almost equal to buying a normal case of 24

I dunno...big price drop but a new brewery (in business only four years http://finebeers.ca/?p=1365 ), shipped from a hot country with semi-developed logistics, all natural...hate to be a Donnie Downer but there's a high risk of spoilage. And for the price equivalent $38 for a 2-4 ...I think I'll stick with Ontario craft beer.

The Beer Store works on a pack up pricing model. They inventory the smallest saleable unit, in this case a single bottle, but can offer larger pack prices for a savings. In this case a single bottle sells for $7.15, but if you buy the whole case, it sells for $38. They will show 0 inventory on the full case, but if they have at least 12, you can get the whole case price.

If it's spoiled, return it? Not that big a deal.
