    Have you ever tried Labatt beer?? It only tastes good....whencompared to American beer. Otherwise, it's terrible.

      Good, if it is treasure we should bury it. Labatts would be worth more as a buried treasure. I won't go looking to dig it up.

        Labatt-brewed beer is a national embarassment, not a treasure. We have so many good micros, but foreigners only recognize the brand-name bland beers like Blue and Molson Canadian.

        Also, urine is urine, no matter what name is goes by. If Guiness owned Labatt and they still brewed Blue using the current recipe then I still would not drink it.

        On the bright side, it looks like this is going to turn into a beer thread!

            Could you stereotype yourself a little more next time? American ignorance I tell you.

              I have to point out that Labatt Brewing hasn't been a Canadian company for several years. Interbrew SA is a Belgian company that acquired them a while back. That's why the Blue Jays were sold off; Interbrew didn't see them as part of the core business.

              And you're right; Blue is about the bottom rung, moving up the ladder of Canadian beers. What I wouldn't give to have a few Alexander Keith's this weekend.

                I'm not sure if this is the one you're referring to, but the one classic Eisbock I know of is made by Niagara Falls Brewery (from my hometown), widely regarded as one of the world's best ice beers. They have a number of other great beers as well.

                Funny enough, Niagara Falls Brewery makes most of their money by selling brewing equipment to other micros and not by brewing beer.

                  Labatt's is to Canadian college kids as Natural Light is to US college kids. I remember in college going to the store with $10 and having 3 choices

                  1. 6 pack of Guiness, Sam Adams or other "upper-class" beer
                  2. 12 pack of Bud, Bud Light, or similar
                  3. Case of Natty Light (and a bag of chips to boot!)


                  Easy choice in college....#3!!!!

                    Dont you mean Labatts is to canadian college kids as Keystone (as well as Natty) is to american college kids??


                    Around here, 30 'stones are cheaper than 24 Nattys by about 2 or 3 bucks.

                      Not American ignorance but a fat finger and trying to do too many things at the same time. Ye of little faith.

                        Crest.

                        10% extra strong

                        1.85 a king can

                        tastes like *** and gives you severe beer goggles.

                        nothing better for the starving student.

                          Labatt's should sell the giant goalie mask Pez dispenser in the commercial. That might make up for the taste...
