Carling Black Label? It's available here in Alberta, but not terribly popular. Other Carlings are unavailable locally, but I do remember about three other Carlings from when I lived in Ontario.

I used to get a kick out of American business associates who were up here on business. At the end of the day, we'd go out for dinner. They'd ask for a Molson, and the waitperson would ask, "Molson what?" The American would look surprised, and usually respond, "There's more than one?"

I well remember the old ditty of an ad that went Mable, Black Label, Carlings Black Label Beer.....

Anybody remember Red Cap Ale... Growing up it was Red Cap or Labatts 50 in the trunk of the 55 Pontiac to go cruising the side roads. Save up the Can Trash gas coupons and buy a new tire (6.25 X 15") every couple of weeks for the off-side rear wheel after you'd burned it down to the cords impressing your friends.

LOL

When I worked on VIA back in 1980 we didn't have any US brand beers for sale on the train. So when Americans got over the shock, they would then ask for a Canadian Beer. It always got amusing when I tried to clarify if they want A Canadian, or any Canadian beer.

It started in Canada in 1843 in London, Ontario.

It's now owned by Molson's.

Extra Old Stock ( Black Label )was very popular at one time, not so much now. They now have a Black Label Supreme, which is 8 percent.

There are just too many really good craft beers out there. The local government liquor stores are carrying more and more local brews.

A friend arranged a craft beer crawl for a few of us here in Vancouver. Some really tasty fresh beers. The ONLY major brewery I buy from these days is the occasional Alexander Keith's or perhaps a Kokanee on a hot day.

I drink Coors. A six-pack of 16-ounce cans costs less than six dollars here.

I arrived home in Canada just in time for some snow to arrive and to once again get re-acquainted with Ontario's cluster flop monopoly set up of essentially having to pay twice for one case of beer. Cripes!

Ya, but it keeps me in line

Just paid $11 something on a six pack of this local brew.

Main Street Pilsner – Main Street Brewing Company

It's good though, having one now

Sounds good.

In reference to an earlier post, O'Keefe used to have one called Extra Old Stock as well.
