This has been a very difficult season to get beer to BC. Beer is routed through the Panama Canel during the winter and there have been several labour issues along the western seaboard causing all sorts of delays.
The breweries in Belgium and France have also had a difficult fall and winter and some breweries are completely out of stock no even able to supply their own brew houses.
This does us absolutely no good. Although we have a lot of beer on order, we are low on a lot of SKUs. Please bear with us.
cheers - Leanne

They're all so good it will be difficult choosing your favorite.
On the Coast aired Nov 25 '14. Listen here:
Winter beer is usually all about vanilla, but for On the Coast beer columnist Rebecca Whyman, this year the holidays are about Christmas ales from Belgium.
Whyman says all three are vanilla-free, and can be imported from Bravo Beer Company or found at specialty beer stores.
Bonsecours Blonde de Noel : One of the only blonde ales brewed for Christmas, it is made with malt, candi sugar, hops and yeast. This is a sweet, yeasty and fruity beer with notes of clove, coriander and citrus.
Noel de Silenrieux: An organic spiced Belgian brown ale made with barley malt, candi sugar, hops and spices. It tastes of cherries, figs, grapes and pears. It has a sweet initial taste, moving to caramel and molasses.
Scaldis Noel: A dry-hopped Belgian strong dark ale made with barley malt, candi sugar, hops and yeast. It tastes of toffee, oak, nuts, pepper, stone fruit and all spice with the mouthfeel of a sherry or port.
Our incredible selection of Christmas beers are here, cleared customs, activated and ready to go. We've got some great new selections as well as the tried and true. Take your pick....or try them all!
