The annual booze sale in BC doesn’t even take place until the third of November.
Canadians Are Camping Outside A Store 2 Weeks Before This Sale To Get A $21,000 Bottle Of Whiskey

Canada is known for being behind some of the smoothest "rye" whiskeys in the world and even has an international dispute with Denmark that's dedicated to sharing some booze over an island. It goes without saying that Canadians take their alcohol selection very seriously and that's why a new photo circulating the internet is so hilarious. 

A west-coast Canadian in BC took to Reddit to share a photo of some campers in the province. The only twist? That these fine folks are actually camping out for the annual luxury alcohol sale that starts in two weeks

A user by the name of enough_kale posted the photo on the Vancouver subreddit on Friday and since has gained the interest of many Canadians. Unlike Ontario, BC allows both private and government retailers to sell alcohol, so this sale has become an annual event

Once a year there is a bunch of high-end wines and spirits that go for hundreds, if not thousands of dollars. While the event is happening on November 3rd, it gets so chaotic at the BC Liquor Stores that people have to camp out in order to get the best (and most expensive) booze. 

Now with two weeks to go until the event, the annual camp out is back and people were quick to poke fun at those who are sleeping in tents for two weeks. Many Canadians were quick to rip apart the people camping due to the possibility that the alcohol was being purchased for resale at an inflated price after.

The most expensive item on the docket this year is the Karuizawa whiskey dating back 49 years to 1969. The whiskey itself is described as "classy, floral, and fruity" is going for $21,000 per bottle, though prices can go up in the two weeks left before the sale.

One Canadian who was in the dark on the annual event actually researched and eventually found the bottle listing pamphlet. It listed some bottles that are in the $100 range, others are rare $21,000 bottles of whiskey or $17,000 bottles of brandy

While reselling bottles can be beneficial for business owners in the province, people seem to agree that lining up two weeks in advance seems a tad ridiculous. With that being said, honestly who can blame anyone for wanting a deal if they're going to spend $30,000 on some booze?

No matter what, just be aware that on November 3rd the BCLS will be absolutely nuts. It's probably best to stock up the day before if you're going to be thirsty next month.
