Canadian Beer

Greetings Purpose-Driven Drinkers!

I'm honoured to join the ranks of the blog contributors to this site. Hopefully I'll add some meaningful Canadian content to this site...

But first, a statistic:
The average Canadian consumes 84 L of beer a year.

Having said that, I'm nowhere near that in personal consumption. But I do enjoy a pint every now and again.

My personal recommendations, for Canadian beer, are Kokanee and Moosehead for lager, and Rickard's Red and Fort Garry Dark for ales.

Happy exhilaration!

Pastor Klages,

Can you explain LaBatt's Blue for me? My dad is a former Canadian who remains loyal to this beer.

Labatt's Blue is a gross, foul-tasting lager... no, wait, let me start again.

Labatt's Blue is the #1 selling Canadian beer in the world. Those who like it point to its crisp, clean flavour and refreshing aftertaste.

Those who don't like it, like me, think it's badly overhyped and is a guaranteed way to have a rumbly tummy for the next day or two.

So I guess that the long and the short of it is that Canadian beers, in general, are a little stronger and a little more flavourful than American beers... but I still wouldn't buy Blue. Yuck.

"...rumbly tummy for the next day or two."

You've just explained a aspect of my father after he drinks his LaBatt's Blue.

Next question, explain Drambuie.

While we're riding the wave of "Pupose-driven" mania, might I recomend another source of jest?

It's not wwJd. That would be too old school. ;)

Yeah, I really care what Rick Warren would do. He's perfect like Jesus, right? HAAAAA!!!!! I wouldn't want to be caught dead wearing that crap.

Canadian beer sucks. I had to drink it to continue my Beer Tour at Old Chicago, but otherwise, I would have rather drank my own piss. The only good booze to come from the Canucks is Crown Royal.

Canadian beer is a nice intermediate point between the watery, thin, flavourless beers of the USA and the full-bodied strong beers of Europe.

I don't know where one can get it
(other than in St. Louis) but one beer that rises above most in taste and texture, etc. is a German favorite, "Spaten". Das ist
sehr gut beer! Any of you heard of it?
