Beer

The closest thing we can get here in Canada is Alexander Keith's Cascade Hop Ale. It's made with the same kind of hops and brewed "west coast style" (whatever the fuck that means) but it's not quite exactly the same.

Also it was a limited edition kind of thing so it's tough to find here in Toronto, which sucks because it was so easy to find in Halifax (along with every other imaginable kind of Keith's beer). I'm going back east on Monday for Christmas, I intend to drink my share and about ten other peoples' too.

Yeah now I'm craving this little taco place in the front a hotel on Ocean Ave., and I am sad again since I can't have it :cry:

I talked to some Bostonians visiting Canada and they also lamented the beer variety, but I told them you can find Belgian beers and we have good beers from Quebec like La Fin de Monde which are cheap and available here.

There's lots of what I'm told is good stuff, but I haven't really been in the mood to try much new beer since I moved here.

That being said, I do also like this local beer: Hawaiian Style Pale Ale | Spearhead Brewing Company, Beer Without Boundaries

It sounds strange, but it really is phenomenal. The pineapple goes so well with the pale ale flavour.

If you want something to remind you of California try 8 wired superconductor double IPA. It's from New Zealand but it's pretty much as good. Most 8 wired beers are excellent, especially the iStout.

Boxer....Big Bear.....just kidding

For normal common beer I prefer Budweiser and Miller Genuine Draft.

Not a giant fan of the dark beers.

Guinness is about the only mass produced beer I'll still drink... Unless we're counting Sam Adams.

Fan these days of the fine work being done at Six Point, 21st Amendment, 2 Roads, Kelso, Ommegang and Allagash.
