I also heard they just had beer shortages, but I don't know why they would ship to Ontario and not to their next door neighbours.

Whatever the reason I dreadfully miss red racer, please come back. : (
Well with Ontario being a bigger market and they first shipment of the IPA selling out in 3 days would be pretty good reason to ship as much of their resources out there.

Hopefully with the gateway pipeline being squashed they will eventually return. It's understandable to take a political stance against the province especially when alcohol is heavily government taxed in AB.
