Ticketholders will be among the first to be able to purchase the exclusive 6-litre bottles and will have the opportunity to take a photo with Jerry Vietz and Sylvain Bouchard, and to have their bottle autographed.
Jerry Vietz will provide insight on the way Unibroue 17 and La Fin du Monde are crafted and the inspiration behind them. “I'm happy to introduce the new limited-edition 6-litre bottle of La Fin du Monde and Unibroue 17 Grande Réserve in their branded wooden case – only 50 of which will be available for each beer in the Ontario market,” says Vietz. “La Fin du Monde is one of Unibroue's most iconic beers. It has earned more medals and awards – including some of the world's highest honours – than any other Canadian beer. I'm also thrilled with our fifth edition of the Unibroue 17 Grande Réserve, another multiple award winner, which is brewed only once a year.”
The 6-litre bottles are available exclusively at Summerhill LCBO in Toronto and the Rideau Street LCBO in Ottawa. Other varieties of Unibroue are available at LCBO stores across the province. Blanche de Chambly and La Fin du Monde are offered year-round in 341mL pack formats. Unibroue 17 Grande Réserve is available in its 2015 vintage, its fifth annual release at the LCBO.
6-litre bottles of La Fin du Monde will be sold for $149.00 and Unibroue 17 Grande Réserve will be sold for $199.00.
