You may recall a thread I started a few months ago about importing a Czech beer. It is sent to Canada but not the US. I was wondering if anyone in Canada would be willing to purchase a case and ship it to me here in the US. Its a fantastic beer, and this would basically be the only way we could get it here.

No definate timetable, just putting out the feelers.

You may return to regular scheduled programming.

If no Canadian rbr's can help you out, you might try checking over on beeradvocate.com. You could see if anyone has any of the beer to trade/buy or possibly find a NLLS (non local liquor store) that could ship it to you.

What beer is it exactly that you are trying to get?

Hey hokie,
Let me know what beer it is again and I'll check over here if they've received it in stock. It was a while since I looked. Might it be one of these beers?

I'm looking for Kozel Dark (Cerne). I know it is exported to Canada and I think they send it to Sweden to Wayne. We were totally bummed out that we can't get it here.

Getting some Krusovice this weekend...thats a good one too. There is a liquor store in DC that carries a lot of Czech beer, but no one here can seem to get Kozel.

everything is legal unless you get caught.

they make good beer but it's going to be a lot for a lager thats had to cope with shipping across the pond...

fleck, I like the way you think on the legality issue.

It will be a lot of money, but part of it is nostalgia factor. Even if its not AS good as it is over there, its still better than most beer you can get here.

I am driving to Arizona next week, so I phoned the Liquor Store here today.

That is not one of the products on the British Columbia catalogue.

I don't know if it may be in Alberta or Ontario ( since we have rbr's from both of those locations ).

Dude TMB you're awesome in my book just for trying. I really appreciate that.

So does each province have its own import rules and products? Thats interesting.
There is a Liquor control board in each province and that LCB does the selection and buying for that province.

The LCBO in Ontario is the largest in the country and will probably carry a wider selection due to that fact.

I have always found the LCBO stores there to be a bit like a candy store.

There are few RBR types in Ontario - Blakcloud and Mike T come to mind.

Perhaps one of them could enquire for you.

If I could have got it here I would have - a case or two of beer doesn't take up much room in the trunk and shipping from Arizona - though probably a challenge would have been do-able.

Sorry.
