From: GUEST,Number 6
Date: 02 Oct 06 - 09:25 AM

I read an article in the local maritiem CBC Web site stating that Moosehead Breweries is the largest Canadian Brewer ... my immediate reaction was 'hang on here' ... but in retrospect they are suprisingly.

Little old Mooshead, brewed here in Saint John N.B is now left carrying the national standard.

The demise of Canadian beer ... Molson, Labbatt's, even the succesfull upstart Sleeman's are no longer Canadian.

We are selling off our national treasures.

BTW ... the article had to do with Mooshead supplying (free) beer to Canadian troops in Afghanistan.

These guys in Moncton are doing okay.

Don't forget that Moosehead won gold medals in Europe and NA this past year. It IS a darn good beer.

On the other hand, the most popular brand of beer in New Brunswick is Bud. Yup, Bud outsells even Alpine and the various Moose. (I cannot bring myself to type "Mooses".) However, I may be giving up the beer in the near future, so that may change.

It should be pointed out that the Bud gnu mentioned is not imported, ... brewed by Labatts, and in general tastes like a Labatt's, though it is labelled and packaged as Bud   .... Labatt also brews, labels and packages Guinness in the same way ... but in all honesty it is not Guiness, it is absolute garbage. How they get away with that I don't know.

Imported or not Bud is horsepiss and Bud Light is horsepiss diluted with swampwater. Advertising seems to have cracked the egg with the younger crowd. Moose is far better and so is Keiths. As for the Halifax cottage breweries I agree with Dave. Halifax also has some great brew pubs. Asa for the Islamic country that our troops are in they are the world's largest producers of illegal opium so any protesters can kiss my arse!

Clinton ... Labatt's is still selling their Guinness out here ... maybe trying to cash in on the Irish heritage ... I don't know of anyone who drinks it .... especially when you can procure the real imported stuff in pubs and the NB Liquor Board outlets.

Keith's is pretty good.

I don't know whether Molson's or Labatt's still taste the same as they did in the 70's ... haven't touched that stuff in years.

No, Rapaire, the US won't take the chance of offending the Muslims so won't allow the troops fighting there buy beer at the Exchange(US NAAFI). The Canadians don't seem to worry about offending the Muslims, that they are fighting.

Go Canadians! Vive Les Canadiens! (?)

Thats why Coors bought Molsons out!

Big Rock in Calgary produces some good beers and ales. Heinekins and Dos Ecces (XX, brown beer) are good imports. Many good local and micro-brewery products across Canada but of course Molsons, Labatt, Bud and other mass-produced stuff is still drunk by the masses, regardless of where it is brewed(?).
Kokanee from British Columbia is popular, but is not really distinctive.

This is one of the big differences between Minnesota and the Maritimes. In the Maritimes, Moosehead is beer, in Minnesota its a misdemeanor ***snerk*** Gawd that is an old joke. Still works in my pub shows though.

I love Moosehead Beer. It is one of the only beers that I can see through, that I drink.

"Maudite" & "Fin Du Mond"
If that's the kind of skite that flips your switch, get a few bottles of Arrogant Bastard Ale.... It's the same kinda swill...

Learn a new term, did ya, clint boy? You have used "passive aggressive" in several threads and a couple of different contexts, now. Good lad, I am sure your ma is proud.

But I still think that you meant to say that "in your opinion" the stuff isn't very good. Otherwise what your statement is a gratuitous assertion. Look that one up. That way you can throw that one around too. Should be good for a couple of admiring glances from mom. I am sure she is very proud of how well you learned manners and how to talk to people.

And I still think Moosehead is a great beer.

A little story that happened to stupid me (us). 35 years ago last Monday, the good wife and I were returning from N.S. to Quebec. I decided to fill up the station wagon with Maritime beer. So I gets Moosehead, Ten Penny, and Olands.
   Decided to go through the States as a short cut. Got to the border up this way and was asked what the hell was I doing trans[porting alcohol from one country into another. Long story short the border guard let us pass with all my beer. As I recall I had 8-10 cases of 24. I think it was the just married sign still on the hood of the car that did it.
