Fred, I love both the Lager and Amber Red, I will make every effort to reserve for you a Great White if thats your choosing. To tell the truth, dragging any American beer, be it mega or micro brewed into Canada is like taking fish sticks to a fish fry, hamburger to a steak feed, and your sister to the prom.
Canadian Beer Rocks!! This beer swap should be fun and WTF, we are all here for the fun!

I'm pretty sure I can scare up a keg of local brewed stuff ... count me in!

@FJRGuy... we may need that support vehicle just to carry beer!

And herein lies an "accident" waiting to happen. When there's a beer cargo, Pierre can easily get very lost.... way beyond anything you've ever heard about Bungie's GPS.

Give Pierre a whole keg of beer and it will be the last anyone sees of him, last reported heading deep into the woods of Maple Syrup country.

Anybody interested in a Belgian White called "Shocktop" brewed in St. Louis, MO? I don't know how far it travels, but I've bought it as far south as Florida.
I'm gonna do what ever I wanna do, when ever I wanna do it... all of the time.

I volunteer to try it! Don't think I've ever had a Belgian white wheat beer?

However, this excerpt from their site concerns me:

Shock Top is brewed to be enjoyed responsibly by adults.

I imagine they will make an exception in your case.

I will only trade it for locally brewed Canadian horse piss. And yes, that is what Clydesdale horses and St. Louis beers have in common.

How about this?

Yes, I had it the other night at Old Chicago, it was touted as the "Microbrew of the Month"...except it's owned by Anheuser Busch!!! Microbrew my ass! (It was still pretty tasty)

I can now find some good microbrewery beers from Québec at the BC Liquor Stores so I’ll bring some samples for people to try.
No worries if you don’t like them, because I do!
:P

I will gratefully try MOST any brew placed before me, as Pinhead, 'Zilla, and Beemerdon will attest to reference the chili beer tried in Taos. I have simple tastes.

Brings to mind an afternoon a couple of months ago, when I was sitting on a pier at a restaurant on the Gulf in Florida. I was working on an all-u-can eat fish'n chips and Amberbock ('cause that was what was on tap).

At the table next to me a woman with a European accent (I won't name which Swedish country she said she was from) wanted to know if they had "sparkling water". The waiter replied, "We have club soda." Air temp dropped 10 degrees, totally unacceptable.

Beer? "We have Shock Top".

"Whazzat?"

"A Belgian White beer."

She ordered it, and then proclaimed "what a great Belgium beer" it was. I almost told her it was brewed in St. Louis by Clydesdales at A/B.

Table on the other side of me had a group from Michigan who were ordering what sounded like their last meal, they were so particular.

"What kind of fish is in your fish'n chips? Grouper?"

"No, it is cod."

"I'll have scrambled eggs and bacon--- extra crisp."

I had a good meal and a beer.... sometimes I am so glad I am so "Diners, Drive-ins and Dives" and not sparkling water. I love people watching.
I'm gonna do what ever I wanna do, when ever I wanna do it... all of the time.

Count me in, stopped and picked up a Barelywine and IPA at FullSail Brewery in Hood River, OR yesterday. However, they might not last until then so maybe another trip is in the future. :)
