Ur absolutely right +10...

Lets revisit Belgian beers . Hoegaarden, pronounced who-hard-en by the way, is a white beer spiced with coriander. I happen to think its excellent with food but not everyone likes it.

Bellevue Kriek is a beer made with cherries. This variety is made with a syrup but the original was made in oak barrels with real cherries... Obviously very fruity, and commonly called a girls beer there. Bellevue also makes a raspberry variety.

Tripels are usually of higher strength... 8% alcohol or higher . Very distinct taste . I think we have karmeliet tripel ...

All these can be found here and I encourage you to check them out... Its all very distinctive...


Yes. I sell all of those beers and about 400 others...
. And Karmeliet kills it.

There's no snobbery to it, it's just asking for a little variety. Do you only eat at McDonald's? do you only want compact cars to drive? if you go into a liquor store and they have 500 different wines to choose from, no body bats an eyelash. But walk into a liquor store and see if they have more 10 beers that don't fall into the macro-lager category and you get looked at sideways. Thankfully people are beginning to change that and restaurants are putting as much efforts into their beer lists as much as their wine lists. Mind you, We beer nerds are a passionate bunch and are rather vocal about our obsession with it. We want beer to be made the way it used to be...
and as far as being "elegantly wasted", I can't remember the last time I got hammered.... and now I have that INXS song stuck in my head. thanks....

to say that beer is just beer and call everyone idiots is dismissive. That's like saying pasta is pasta and then eating nothing but Kraft Dinner.

Ha ha, no I do agree with you about variety. But if someone hands you a beer and you say something like, "Oh no I only Fierkengarden". At the end of the day it's water, barely, and hops, with a bit of fermentation. To pretend it's some high end product or something is funny to me.

I'm Elegantly Wasted! :D

Kinda.... it's the use of Corn (usually a 70% Barley to 30% Dextrose) because Corn is cheap and barley is expensive... and that's what I can't stand with a lot of those guys... Budweiser/Kokanee/Coors/Canadian/etc. even a lot of the imported Green beers use some amount of corn.

but I know what you mean man. I try to be as apologetic as possible if someone offers me a beer I don't like, because I always appreciate the gesture... even if it is a Cariboo....

I believe both rice and corn/dextrose.... dextrose is just cheaper. and the price of rice is on the rise...

Beer at the end of the day is Barley, Hopps, Water, and Yeast , and they are the 4 basic food groups as I am concerned.

I'll take an ice cold Grolsch over any other beer these days.

I just want to take a moment and say how amazing it is that such a ridiculous original post turned into a fascinating discussion on beer varieties. Especially here on CDC. Quite refreshing.

I just started learning stove top brewing last year and can already tell its the kind of thing I'll always need to improve upon. So many possibilities. Incidentally, I have a German friend in Berlin who is actually getting a university degree in beer brewing. They take it really seriously over there. Far as I know, there's no equivalent to that level of craftsmanship here in Canada (not to say there aren't any good beers, just that I haven't heard of anyone studying for 3 or 4 years in advance).

A good friend of mine is the brewmaster at a Vancouver area brewery. He did his degree at the University of Edinburgh.

new sponsors every year...if this is league wide...great for the NHL. That must have been one hell of a sponsorship deal. If you drink beer, you will end up buying budweiser soon enough...you will then probably get to enjoy the taste and associate it with the Canucks. You will then go buy a budweiser to watch a game at home to simulate the game experience of Rogers Arena.

yup...basic consumer behaviour and product association. same with pepsi.

Bud does use rice as an adjunct. Most American Panther-Piss does. They say it 'smooths' the product out. Makes a crappy product taste like a watered-down crappy product!

Nope. League sponsor is Molson-Coors. Canucks' sponsor is Labatt.

Not sure about "get to enjoy taste and associate it with the Canucks" part... I'll see if it works with my Sierra Nevada Pale Ale.... now THAT is a tasty beer that I can associate with Hockey...

So is this Budwieser deal league wide or in just some arenas? I just find it funny that we have decent beer GIB and Molson in this city yet we don't have it in our own hockey arena??? Money talks but come on!

BEER TEAMS

Labatt Breweries of Canada may have lost out on its bid for the rights to sponsor the NHL, but on Tuesday it announced it had scored new deals for sponsoring three of the league's Canadian teams, including its newest club and the Stanley Cup finalist. Here's a breakdown of the brewery-team matchups:

Labatt: Winnipeg Jets, Vancouver Canucks, Calgary Flames

Molson: Edmonton Oilers, Toronto Maple Leafs, Ottawa Senators, Montreal Canadiens
CDC is a reflection of society.

I am certainly a 1%er in terms of most beer drank and I still haven't had even one Budweiser. If I want a beer I will walk eight sections over to grab a Kokanee.

If I am in a hurry or they run out of Kokanee I Keith's is OK in a pinch.

I can't beleive that with eight pages nobody complained that they not only made the beer crappier but also smaller and more expensive (16 ounces at 8$ = 0.50 an ounce, 12 ounces at 7.50 = 0.625 and ounce, i.e. a massive 25% increase).

They did acheive their goal though, it often results in me not having any beer at all. More money for me though I can't help but notice the radical run on the fans through vicious prices and playing only the corporate card means that if I decide I don't even want to go to the game it's not like there's a huge clamour for tickets even any more!

But despite all this what I don't get is why it's 99% bud everywhere. It's freaking labatt why not have some Labatt blue? Why not a few more locations that sell Kokanee (heck, make a bud zone downstairs for premium, and then make the current Bud zone upstairs the Kokanee zone (where it could be the beer up here), market both products, and provide some variety somewhere other than 308? Heck, just having a variety stand every 8 sections or so would allow them to have a variety of Labatts products, market their whole line, and still have an overwhelming bud vibe to the building if that's what they are keen to do.

But rest assured, even in my keenest moment for a beer, I ain't drinking a budweiser. If a bud girl comes down, sits and my lap, and offers me one, I will tell her to leave and take that pisswater with her.

You have no taste or are extremely inexperienced in Canadian beer if you think that mass produced swill is the best available.

Other than micro-brews, OK Springs is probably the best. Keith's and Rickard's aren't bad though.

I will never buy a beer at a hockey game again. There is never any good selection and the prices are just plain stupid. Anyone drinking beer at a hockey game is just stupid.

Just bring a flask of your favorite drink like most of us and put it in your girlfriends purse so they can't search and find it ;)

You want a nice beer? Try Black Bute. A bit hard to find in BC but definitely worth it if you love porter.
