What kind of beer does Rexall serve?

Hey sorry if this is a dumb question, but I know Rexall is a Molson kind of arena. Do they sell anything cool at all like Alley Kat?

Finally coming back to Edmonton this weekend and get to go to my first game since 06, just wondering if anything his changed in that regard. Tried googling, but yeah, nothing really specific.

I'm not ridiculously beer geeky, though, i'll be filling my suitcase with purchases from Sherbrooke, just want to know if there is anything better (or even slightly better) than the basics.

Cheers.

Rexall serves really stale, flat beer. That's about all I know.

Canadian, Coors light, Pilsner, and Rickards red. IIRC.

Yeah, it's ALL Molson products. Too bad. I know they pay a TON of money for exclusive beer rights or whatever.

It's a microbrew that I believe is called "Urinal Draft"

The human and urinal cake filtration is a closely guarded step in the process.

This.

I went to a pro wrestling event a few years back (yeah, not hockey but still Rexall) and the beer was so watered down it was absolutely comical. Kinda regret not taking a picture because it has to be seen to be believed.

Also, to answer question: yeah, it's all Molson brand beers.

To be honest I wouldn't be surprised if they were serving black label or similar as Canadian. Molson really wouldn't have an issue with it as long as its a Molson product and it would save them 40-50 bucks a keg. I'm not saying this happens in bars but.......

It may not be the best tasting lager on the planet, but after the third of fourth one, you can't even tell.

I think it's more group intoxication then the beer itself. You always get drunk quicker in exciting group settings like that.

It's probably a stretch to refer to any alcohol served in a sporting arena as "beer."

If Rexall beer's watered down, then I must be quite the lightweight when I walk through those doors. **** gets me right hammered. It's not just Rexall either, when I catch games in Vancouver it's the same deal. I don't know what the heck they do to their beer, but at considering how drunk I get I'm not too upset about how much they charge. 3-4 of those beers and I'm good.

Pro tip - Get the cans of beer. Smaller, but cheaper per ounce than the draft crap.

My theory is that the extra drunken feeling comes from actually watching the game. When you are trying to keep up watching something as fast paced as hockey, the drunkenness becomes more obvious than it might in another situation.

They do have imports at the bars. Can't remember the selection available aside from Heineken. $7.50 per can.

They use nitrogen to pump the stuff from a huge vat in the basement. Makes it carbonated with laughing gas. That's why it works so efficiently.
