The article I referenced was actually the wrong one (sorry!). I meant to link to an article from the Edm0nton Journal (which I couldn't find) that mentions the same statistics, but doesn't end up feeding right back into the hands of the C0nservative Party of Alberta. The Journal article cites another upstart Calgary brewer, Mountain Crest, who doesn't appear to be benefitting from these "tax breaks." Like the Sun article, the Journal reminds readers of Kle1n's friendship with B1g R0ck boss Ed McNa1ly, but in the Journal it is not glossed over. The Journal also reminds readers that Kle1n's daughter is a high-ranking executive at B1g R0ck.

I'm quite certain that Alley Kat, an Edmonton-based brewer, has been seeing none of these benefits. Alley Kat, "tax breaks" aside, has been hastening its own demise by refusing to produce and market an instantly recognizable brand for their lager. "Charlie Flint's Original Lager" sounds like you need a handlebar moustache to enjoy, and it's sold practically nowhere. It's not all bad branding, however, and their Aprikat -- an apricot lager, if you can believe it -- is an absolute coup, but unfortunately it's far too light and sweet to be appealing at any time other than the two months of the year where Albertan weather is warm.

The problem is that Edmonton elects practically NO Conservative members to the Legislature. You can see where this is going, right?

Well, here comes a hopeful gentleman. The full text from this article can be found, courtesy of the CBC, at http://edmonton.cbc.ca/regional/servlet/View?filename=ed-beer-20041230.


Well, I like the idea of of focussing on the lager first, which is what Albertans mainly drink. But Maverick Supreme? I might as well just stop shaving right now...


It's like a pale ale (in terms of flavour and body), but with a more golden tint. And as I mentioned before, it's highly, highly carbonated. The hangovers are horrific, and the smell of lemon juice on my hands in the morning is enough to make me throw up.


Yes.

don't understand this, how do you get from enjoying delicious bottles of pale ale brewed up by dionysus himself, to drinking pints of flat warm piss at 3.6%

IPA is mostly fine i think, though ive had loads that are dangerously shit

But- when you start getting into stuff like saisons and sours then you're getting too close to the real anorak gear for me. Or the posh stouts- they are one step removed from getting a bottle of spitfire out and reading the real ale guide

I stand by my position

is it something to do with wanting a beer, rather than wine or spirit, basically something with fizz, but that you don't need to mix, but which is stronger, so you don't need a slash as bad and ca eg enjoy at a concert or something?

I suggest having one of your proconsuls crucified on spurious sedition charges. You'll feel better in no time.
