Toronto, Ontario – You will now be able to get your hands on bottles of Jelly King from Bellwoods Brewery at select LCBO locations.
More information can be found on the Bellwoods blog but this is what they had to say about this new venture into LCBO stores:
Back when we underwent our initial, small expansion into the space behind our 126 Ossington retail store, we approached the LCBO with questions about listing our beer. We discussed logistics, took a few months to gauge the demand of the newly opened Ossington retail store, and quickly realized that we didn’t have near the volume necessary to entertain such ideas.
Since firing up our Hafis production facility almost three years ago, we’ve worked to scale up volumes to meet local demand, and dabbled in exporting small shipments of beer to other provinces, the US, and occasionally Europe.
Jelly King will be the same price in the LCBO as it is in our retail stores ($6.50/500mL). We have no immediate plans to add any more styles at this time, or branch further into grocery stores/The Beer Store.
