Asahi Kuronama Black availability?

I know Ozawa carries this in case form, but the price is outrageously expensive ($115 for case of 24). You can get a sixer of it in Cali for $12, so it's hard to get over that mental block and pay more than double here. The price works out to about $4.77 for a 330ml bottle, even Innis & Gunn is only $3.50 a bottle.

Do you recall any restaurants serving this? I don't mind paying a premium for one bottle, it's just hard to swallow that cost for a case of 24. I never buy 24's anyway, I always buy singles at lcbo for variety is the spice of life.

For those wondering, it is a dark lager that is brewed in Japan. Unlike the Asahi we get in lcbo/beer store, which is brewed locally.
