LCBO — hill farmstead beer release.
First offered 3 beers from Hill Farmstead Brewery and Keep6 Imports, as part of a limited release set to go on sale online through LCBO website at 11am July 23rd. with a limit of 4 bottles per person. The LCBO website crashed, leaving consumers to wasting hours of their time.
The Hill Farmstead offer was rescheduled for today (July 27th, 2018) with a release time of 8:30am this morning with a limit of 2 bottles per person.
The website went live approximately 20-25 minutes early, leaving consumers who were waiting for the product to go live at 8:30am, waiting for a product that was "sold out" 20 minutes before it was supposed to go on sale, wasting a lot of people's time once again. There is also speculation that the site went live early to accomidate LCBO employees first before actual customers. Now maybe our time isn't worth much more than a "sorry" to the LCBO monopoly, but even Keep 6 Imports is saying that they were "let down by the system" and that in future they would find a "better way" to get their beer into the hands of the people that want it. The LCBO has proved themselves to be unreliable in the face of a limited release. Let all suppliers know this. Two debacles for one release.
