Canadian Beer recommendations

Postby don novicki » Wed Aug 21, 2013 3:38 pm

I'll be in Sask. this Oct. and was wondering what everyone's favorite beer is. I am planning on slamming some mallards and then a few cold ones directly thereafter. What does everyone recommend? We can get all the Molson and Labatts brands here but I am looking for something that we can't get here in the U.S.. Beer and ducks, it doesn't get any better than that.....cheers. :thumbsup:

I have been hearing about AK IPA for quite some time. I think that will be my first purchase after the hunt. By the way where do you buy beer in Canada? At the grocery or is there a beer/wine/ spirits shop that handles everything? Here in Pennsylvania it's all bass ackwards. If you want a case of beer you have to go to a beer distributor (where they can only sell it by the case) if you want a 6 pack of beer you have to buy it at a tavern but they are the only ones that can sell less than a case. If you want wine or spirits, you have to go to a "state store" run by the Gov't.. It's really messed up.......

Not sure about Sask. but here in Alberta we buy beer at the liquor store, privately owned or as off sales at the bar.

PA sounds a lot like Canada when buying booze. here in IL, we can get it just about anywhere...Canada..or at least the province sucks for buying alcohol, taxed to high..and get it where they tell you to get it. There are a few places besides a Gov controlled store you could purchase...but far and few.. :mad:

I have some buddies with no taste, all they drink is lite beer. They went on a fishing trip to Ontario last weekend, brought six cases with them. $13 a case, then $9 duty at the crossing. Am I going to do better by paying duty rather than buying it up there? I've been going to Canada at least once a year for the last dozen or so years. I've always just brought the one bottle or case with me.

It's true it will be about $43 bucks a case. But try some of the above local beers, you will enjoy them and they are quality !!!

As for eating, I have been to Carver's Steakhouse and The Granary - both good Steakhouses with a good selection.

2nd Ave Grill as I remember has good food too. The best in my opinion was Weczeria a wonderful place to eat. Great atmosphere and food is unreal. I was there in January- an amazing meal.

Good luck and have a safe trip.

Keith's IPA
Moosehead
Steam Whistle(not sure if that's out west or not)
Sleamans
Those would be my choices for ones not available in the states. And, sorry about the prices, that's one reason I love travelling in the states! Except for Pennsylvania :mad: , I was pizzed, when we stopped in there at a restaurant for supper, and were laughed at when we asked for a beer! Not just by the waitress, but every other table within ear shot thought we were funny too!

If you are coming to Saskatchewan drink a Saskatchewan made beer. Original 16 or any of the great west brewery beer varieties which are made in Saskatoon. Converted a lot of people to the Original 16, its well worth a try or dozen
