Why it’s Great to be a Canadian Beer Geek!

First and foremost I would like to say Happy Canada Day to all my fellow Canuck beer enthusiasts. There are many, many reasons why it is great to be a Canadian beer drinker and to celebrate our nation’s 145th Birthday I want to, in the best Canadian fashion, give a top ten list of the reasons I think being a Canadian beer geek is so great.

  1. An amazing emergent and thriving craft beer culture that continues to push brewing boundaries.
  2. Driftwood Brewing Company in Victoria, BC.
  3. All the fabulous Quebec microbreweries bringing Belgian styles to Canada.
  4. The friendly beer people from brewers to bloggers to importers to cicerones to sales reps we are all one big happy family encouraging and supporting craft beer love.
  5. Molson Canadian (you have to know what you don’t like to brew what you do).
  6. All the foodie-centric tap rooms bringing us rare casks, endlessly rotating taps and hard-to-find bottles.
  7. Central City Brewing Company for any number of reasons; the brew pub, the cask fests, the award-winning IPA, the incredible liquor store …need I go on.
  8. The Great Canadian Beer Fest in Victoria, BC.
  9. Church-Key Brewing Company in Campbellford, ON.
  10. We can enjoy our craft beer in one of the most beautiful and diverse countries in the world!!!
