Yes we have strong beer, most people need to learn that they don't sell it at your normal grocery store.

Us Canadians can drink. We usually get all drunked up and go seal clubbing. You can find them right outside our igloo's, and we have Polar bear's for pets.

I used to drink it all the time back in the day. We used to hop the border 2-4 times a week when I was home in the summers from college and not old enough to go out in the States yet (my parents' house is 20 minutes from the border).

Yes, it knocks you on your ass if you drink it like normal beer. And they have it in grocery stores in the U.S. now!

It tastes pretty good as well. First time I drank XXX I forgot to read the % and had 10 beers and it knocked me on my ass pretty good. I like it a lot better than all the watered down beers us college kids usually drink.

It's only around 7% alcohol. Not all that much really considering a lot of the microbrews here in the states are at least that much if not more. And they don't taste like crap, remember Molson is owned by Coors now.

It's in the grocery stores here in Michigan, but I've never tried it. Maybe next weekend I'll pick some up.

6.x% seems weak compared to a 12% imperial stout :)

plenty of american micro brews are high in Alcohol, I have had some in 9 to 10 percent range.

I used to live 40 miles from the canada border. went there to buy beer often. after a while I woke up. there regular beer was OK, but not any better than regular american beer. there micro beer didn't compare to the stuff we had/ have. maybe things have changed? but I wouldn't mind having a fresh half warm bottle of Formosa springs bavarian bock beer. this was 10 years ago.............


bavarian bock label

sad they no longer make it, another one gone, R.I.P.

Brick Brewing was originally located in Waterloo ON. They closed that brewery and moved their operations here to the former Formosa Springs Brewery, which used to be the Algonquin Brewery.
