My roommates and myself have been trying different beer every weekend. I just had Labatt Blue, Molson Golden, and Moosehead for the first time. I love this stuff! They are all great but Moosehead is my favorite.

Any other Canadian beer I should try?

Try "Creemore". That used to be my favourite when I lived in Toronto.

Or try this site: www.thebeerstore.ca

Absolutely true. And most of it is exported south. Canadians never drink it. Just like the

Anything brewed by Unibroue.

I actually like Sleeman's Cream Ale 64. It's the only Sleeman's product I've been able to find around here.

I remember about 11 or so years back, one of my friends decided to take a road trip to Canada over Spring Break. Brought back a 12 pack of Upper Canada Pale Ale, now that was a good Canadian beer.

That is a great place. I love the on on Huron Church in Windsor.

I always like Walkerville Lager, Red Cap Ale, and Steeler Lager. Those are some fine Ontario brews.

They don't ship it. It's brewed here (talk about mountain beer from the airport!). Doesn't matter though, it sucks anyway.

Steeler is most certainly a discount brand. It's not among the top brands at Lakeport.

Almost anything from Sleeman's (now owned by a Japanese concern, actually. I think the same company that makes Kirin.) Also Upper Canada Rebellion Ale.

Happy sampling !  drunk

Unfortunately here in Crapchester Labatt's is big. I'd rather drink a Cream Ale or a pint of Erie Canal water though.

Personally I would say I like Kokanee the best. Brewed just over them there hills in Creston B.C. I also have a thing for Moosehead, always the right choice on hunting trips.


Meet you at the Ol' Yacht club for a pint.

I visited them in 2000 and I told them about my love for cheap beer and they gave me a tour and a bunch of neat stuff, and a tin sign for my fence of outdoor beer signs. They were very nice. They normally don't give tours or at least back then they didn't.

I like all beers. I have had 597 commercial brands of beer (I keep track). 101 before I was 21. I only had three I didn't like. Michelob Spiced Ale (1997 only), Leinenkugel's Berry Wiess, and Mouthy Musky Ale.
