What's the legal drinking age in your province?
I know it's 18 here in Quebec.

/agree with OP

Makes no sense that a beer from Austria goes on sale for $1.95, while a can of Creemore costs a dollar more.

I find it especially ironic when the KGBO pitches their "Buy Local" campaign. What a joke.

My vote goes for McAuslan's St-Ambroise Oatmeal Stout. MMmmmmmm.

Brasserie McAuslan Brewery - St-Ambroise Oatmeal Stout

St Ambroise is incredible beer. I LOVE their stout, and their pale ale is pretty incredible too.

Also a huge fan of Picaroons here in fredericton.

Never cared for Unibrue to be honest. I like Modite (sp?) but thats about it. they are way to sweet for me

Flying Monkeys in Barrie make some pretty great beer too

Drinking age is 19 in Ontario, and is in most provinces. I think its only 18 in Quebec and Alberta

You know you can all edit your profiles so the rest of us know where you're from, right?

Well I'm glad others feel my pain somewhat. I feel bad in case I'm coming across as a beer snob...I'm not trying to bash people's preferences and god knows I've drank a lot of Blue and Coors Light in my day, but like I alluded to above, I'm trying to expand my horizons and I'm stymied by the gov't. I don't complain about taxes, I don't complain about the health care system, but the moment the gov't screws with my beer drinking, I snap, lose it.

Anyways, I'm going to change very little ranting about it on this forum. As a final point though, I worked in northern British Columbia for two summers (good ol' Fort St. John) and they had some awesome beers that were readily available in any store that sold liquor...but of course, they didn't have a gov't board that monopolized sales either.

To take this in a bit of a different direction, can people recommend any "must visit" pubs/bars in this country? I'd also be interested in hearing about breweries to visit...

I know they're not Canadian beers, but last night I had a Corsican, a Czechoslovakian, a Lithuanian and a Belgian. I needed some international perspective.
