"Carling O'Keefe 1969-1989[edit]
Carling O'Keefe was bought by Elders IXL of Australia in 1987 and later merged with Molson to form Molson Breweries Canada in 1989. At the time of the merger, Molson was the second largest Canadian brewing company, while Carling O'Keefe was third. The merger put the combined company ahead of former market leader Labatt, and made it the sixth largest North America brewery. Seven Canadian plants were closed due to consolidation. [2]

Molson later merged with Coors to form Molson Coors Brewing Company.

Carling brands are currently owned by the Molson Coors Brewing Company. In South Africa it is distributed by SABMiller."

Funky selection...lots available, but those prices are a shock... Chimay Bleu for $4.80/bottle, I can get that in Ottawa at the LBCO for $3.70/bottle. Search Results : chimay blue Chimay makes an excellent beef stew gravy.

Same on gasoline and tobacco. I well remember the years when annual provincial budgets were followed by annual federal budgets maybe a month later, and every single time, alcohol, tobacco, and gas went up. These three were cash cows for governments, every year.

Then cars got more efficient and used less gas, people stopped smoking, and all that was left, was alcohol. So governments piled on the taxes: provincial excise, federal excise, PST, and GST. Note that sales taxes were levied after the excise taxes were calculated--so you were paying sales taxes upon excise taxes: in effect, double-taxation.

If the intention is to make Canadians drink less by making booze more expensive, it's not working. (Let's face it, the temperance movement lost its fight 90 years ago.) But as long as Canadians are willing to pay the price set by provincial government monopolies (as if they have a choice), our governments will be happy to collect the taxes.

Well since you are already shocked, this might not hurt so much. Here is the price in B.C.

"Sin tax" is right... good grief.

Assuming 4/20 goes legal soon, I wonder what the provincial tax differences will work out to be...

There is a local brewery in Etobicoke (borough of Toronto) that I really enjoy called Great Lakes Brewery. Canuck Pale Ale is my go to craft these days.

Very citrusy and I like that.
