Re: Canadian - American cans

Nice cans, I've heard that the 16oz Labatt's from General is a tough can to acquire, I'll do my best to try and explain the relationship of these two brands. So, my research shows that Coast breweries of B.C. was formed in 1928 by consolidating Victoria Brewing and Phoenix Brewery of B.C., Coast Bre...

Several defencemen I played with over the years took a puck to the face but none that broke bones, by the time I was strapping on the pads to face pucks (played more ball hockey then ice hockey as a youngster) t...

Re: Canadian Question

I checked the Labatt Blue and 50 cans from B.C. they have no mention of the % either, Are there any B.C. labels of Molson Ex or Canadian or Labatt Blue or 50 brands with 8% proof?... just wondering if these brands were introduced after the regulation changed.

Re: Canadian Question

It had to do with early liquor laws in BC. The earlier cans say more that 8% proof (ie more than 4% by volume) and the later ones give an exact amount of 5% by volume (10 per cent proof still more than 8) Thanks Tom, I had often wondered what that was all about, Oddly the early Molson Canadian and ...

Good point about the Moosehead which is also possibly a test can. But your theory of a Canadian ,possibly a lumberjack, chopping it down is intriguing. This is good, If 23-26a is now considered a test can..... That means one less can for me to shop for as I don't collect test cans. :smt026 The Mf71...
