That's not beer. :razz:

Try something from one of the local Ontario micro breweries. Some tasty stuff. Or Unibroue stuff out of Quebec.

Labatt products I love..

Blue or Lucky lager are both great choices (especially lucky when on a budget. It's seriously good friggin beer.)

Also a big fan of Heineken, Lowenbrau, Hoegaarden White, Dragon Stout, and a few others.

edit1: Forgot about Stella Artois.. excellent product

there are just too many to list. i try many different beers and like many.

innis & gunn is an amazing beer, very expensive at $19.50 for a 6pk, but worth trying.

Can one buy that in BC liquor/beer stores? I've never seen that in Ontario and I usually buy beers I've never seen before... you know, in search of something I haven't found yet... like this Innis and Gunn. :cheesygri

Anyone know where a thirsty Torontonian can get this?


To the OP, I usually prefer ales in the winter but I switch them up. One I've been enjoying more regularly than others is Sinha Stout.

One of my favorite haunts:

www.ratebeer.com

Although, most of the beer-snobs on that site look down their nose on my favorite styles: Pils, Lager, that site can give you some excellent ideas.

You need to sign-up to see some of their top-xx lists, but it's free.

My faves:
  1. Christoffel Blond
  2. Samual Adams
  3. Pilsner Urquell
  4. Chechvar


There are a bunch of beers not available in the GVR that I'm anxious to try, Creemore Springs Premium Lager being one of them. I'd be interested to hear what some of you think of it.

Btw, there are some awesome brewers from Quebec, it's just that they specialize in strong ales, not one of my favorite styles.

I like the strong Unibroue beers myself, lots of flavour. I prefer Trois Pistoles which is dark and kind of sweet, as well as Fin Du Monde which is lighter, although both are 8% or 9%.

Mostly I drink Heineken, I also like Stella, Creemore, Sleeman's, Grolsch and sometimes Moosehead or Keith's.

Usually Moosehead, but sometimes if I'm not in the mood to dish out twice the money, I just go for a Canadian

www.wikipedia.org has the answers my friend :)

Ales > Lagers. I happen to like robust, flavourful beers. If that makes me a beer snob, so be it. I just can't stomach the bland, flavourless stuff that most big breweries churn out. And for the record, Rickards is brewed by Molson, Keith's is brewed by Labatt (which is brewed by Interbrew of Belgium). Sleemans is a big brewery and I've yet to like anything from them that is not brewed by one of their subsidiaries, like Unibroue.

Not to knock Interbrew, Hoegaarden, Leffe, and some of their other offerings are quite good. Stella is bland, and tastes like corn and cardboard. Nice glasses though.

For the ultimate beer experience, look no further than your local LCBO and ask what Belgium Trappist ales they offer, such as Chimay. Or, go over to Quebec and pick up a bottle of Unibroue's "Terrible", "Fringante", or "11". Or try the beer store, and look for Maudite (you'll never go back to Rickards Red again), Trois Pistoles (you'll never go back to your regular porter again), or Blanche de Chambly (not as good as some German wheat beers, but similar, and slightly sour like some Belgians witbiers). Note: Most Unibroue beers are 8% or higher. Finally, if you like stouts, St Amboise Oatmeal Stout (from the LCBO) is superior to Guinness (which I love, mostly because it's so available at most pubs). I'm not the only one who thinks this - ratebeer.com puts it in the 99th percentile.

So put down that bland Miller Genuine Draft, and at least try something different just once! You might be surprised!

I agree, ales are good during the winter, since they are usually drank at warmer temps than lagers. I had mixed feelings about Sinha. I found it a little too sweet, and strong for a stout (8% for a stout?!).
