Asahi Black

I was going to do a worthy bump to an old thread, http://www.revscene.net/forums/53793...where-buy.html

You can do a special order through BC Liquor. There will be a minimum quantity to purchase. You can check their details on their website on how to order. I've done this before.

I went to Creekside, Liquor Barn on Cambie, and ended up placing an order at the BC Liquor store on Cambie and 39th. The CSR can't even give me a ETA. On her computer, 264 bottles are coming for various restaurants only. I guess I just missed the boat.

$2.55 per bottle is what she told me.

The wait time isn't all that bad. For such a popular beer, it should come pretty quickly. I ordered an odd-ball German dark beer last time with HachiSix and a few others. It took them close to 1 month to source the beer and to deliver. Mind you, this beer was never in their database so for them to show you availability is a good sign.

The grumpy old man looked the other way as I approached him to ask a question. Then this boy-girl looking person just said "no".

HAHA yea they are so anal with ID. They check even if you are not buying. Which is weird cause I don't see them ID'ing children that families will bring into the store.

It's because you have to be older than 19 to be in the establishment. So even if your not buying anything they have to ID you for being there. It's the same as going into a bar or a club.
Also when you say it's weird you see them not ID'ing children with their family, that's because they are children.

^we understand why they can do it, but ive never been in another liquor store that enforces it so strictly. never been ID'd at the door at a BCL... and more than 75% of the time im not ID'd at the cashier either.

Yeah, all the Liquor Depots/Liquor Barns and most other private liquor stores are more anal about ID'ing because the government sends out their own secret shoppers to audit if the private stores are actually following the ID procedures. Most of the time if the store fails an ID audit, the cashier will be terminated and the store can face a hefty fine or be shut down for a couple of days.. bad for business. The government will be a lot more lenient on sending secret shoppers to their own stores, therefore most of the times at the BC liquor stores you only get ID'd for the person making the purchase.

You're missing the point. You just said it yourself you have to be 19 to be in the store. Wouldn't that also mean that children should not be allowed in the store as well?

I'm guessing you work at one of these places. Its not a big deal, cause I'm pretty used to it now. I was just saying...

Just something random. I love Asahi and I was just reading the label the other day and it said in the back in small print that they're brewed in China now. I thought it was "Japan's #1 imported beer?!
