In no particular order my favorites are

Leffe
Bass IPA
Guiness
Newcastle
Sleemans Original Draft
Blue Moon
Corona (Hot Days)

Not sure if they are in Quebec but in Ontario we we have Mill Street Brewery with their Stock Ale, and Coffee Porter, which are excellent, and Cameron's Auburn Ale which is very good as well.

I am interested in these Unibroue products, looking forward to trying them.

Creemore and Grasshopper on tap are good too.

no really, I like all the 3 Mousquetaires beers, Unibroue (Maudite #1!), Chimay and Duvell!!
I'm sure you never drink Molson Beer

I like your choice M.Laviolette.

Personnally I like Beck's; Beau's; Harp; Newcastle and Duvel the most. I also enjoy Duvel, Chimay, most of Sam Adam's, Stella.

On the other hand I HATE Au Maitre Brasseur

The other day while visiting my grandmother she served me a beer called Dow. Is that an import? It had a funny taste.

I've never been a big beer drinker, so can someone explain what "an easy drinking taste" means?

Also, isn't Dow a chemical company?

No way. Sagres tastes like any other european beer, in other words; one or two is great, but you don't wana get crunk on it. Super Bock is stronger and quite different from the beers you can find in Europe.

Anyway, IMO Pilsner Urquell, Czechvar, Stella and cie are all better than Sagres and other in that category.

Yes Dow is a chemical company and I don't think I will be sampling that one.

Easy drinking taste means you can drink a whole bunch of them without feeling bloated. Corona or Coors Light are great examples of beers that are easy drinking. You will have to hit the bathroom a hundred times afterwards though.

easy drinking means 'very little taste'.

less taste=easy drinking

Im really into obscure beer I guess - they always seem to be commented on at parties and such - here we go..... (note: I like my beer ice cold - like to the point of almost slushing in the bottle - and always bottle - no exceptions)

Tsingtao China (4.8%) A little lighter than I like in taste, but fricken awesome when ice cold. Crisp with litter aftertaste.

ZhuJiang China (5.3%) Malty but a real clean aftertaste. Ice cold is key.

Yang Jing China (5.0%) Slight aftertaste but really tasty.

Peroni Italy (5.0%) Delicious fricken beer - enough said.

Phillips Raspberry Wheat Ale Victoria, BC (5.0%) Tops in my book - only around for the summer here, but wish it was all year round - good even warm! you know that scene from Shawshank when they finished the tar on the roof and they are drinking beer? remember how good it looked and how good it must have tasted? thats what this beer is with every fricken gulp.

Are you serious? Blue Moon has been around a while. 1995. I don't think the White has been around as long.Although it is a Coors product

http://www.coors.com/docs/Blue%20Moo...ct%20Sheet.pdf

It tastes so much the same I am going to believe you. Although I think Rickards White is possibly Blue Moon re-labeled in Canada?

I don't think Dow Chemical and Dow beer are the same. According to this site anyway the Dow Beer outfit went out of business

http://www.blork.org/blorkblog/2002/08/20/shaddap/

The story of folks drinking Dow and dying actually made it on CBC as shown in this archived film

Cherry Wheat and Summer Ale from Sam Adams are good beers.

New Castle Nutmeg brown ale is fantastic.


It's a situation thing.

To me it's the exact opposite of what you said. If I want to drink 1 or two, I'll have a Super Bock, but if I'm planning on drinking plenty, I go with the Sagres or something else. I'm not a fan of Urquell, Stella or Heineken.

But really my favorite is probably Red Stripe. Just strong enough.

It's a Quebec beer. I'm amazed they still brew it. I remember the commercials when I was a kid.

Edit: from a wiki
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dow_Breweries

The Dow brand, formerly owned by Molson, disappeared from the Canadian market in the spring of 1997.

Just how old is this beer your grandmother gave you?
