From a guy that drinks maybe 6 beers a year, if that, I'd pay whatever the cost for a 6 pack of Molson XXX. XXX rocks, everything else "pales" in comparrison.

Perspective

The thing we all must keep in mind is this:

Supposedly, Ben Franklin said :

''Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.''

I love that and in fact have it on a T-Shirt that I bought in the Amana Colonies last year.

So, let us not forget that all things have a price. Sometimes it's more than we want to pay but it may be worth it.

Hey Mike,

that looks like the Columbia Brewing co. behind Scotties
(I used to live in Cranbrook...just down the road)
Home of the Kokanee Bigfoot

Beer, Camping, BigFoot..coincidence? :)

My opinion, beer is still relatively cheap compared to most pleasures in life. Even at $34/24pk....that's only a $1.41 ea.....almost the same as a pop/soda from a vending machine.

I look at it this way, If you stayed in a Hotel and took a Bottle/Can of your favorite brew from your mini-bar it would probably cost you $4, so being in a FGTT we save enough $$$ to indulge.

Karen and I both like the darker draft micro brews <img src=http://www.eco.ab.ca/beer2.gif/>
I dont think they let you take Keg's over the border though.
Could we just tell them we only have one can?

Mike

Lower Standards

You all simply need to lower your standards on the brand of beer. The lower your standards, the lower the price! Heck, after a few they all taste the same anyway...right? :cheers

beer prices

I started drinking presidents choice (super store) costs about $24 for 24.
It is made by Labatts and a good tasting beer. Can't really tell the difference between it and the regular priced beer. Its worth a try

I just got back a few hours ago from 2 weeks in Washington and Oregon.

Beer - average 9.99 US for a case of 24, and of the brands we like.

Here it's almost 40 bucks with deposit. More - if you hit off sales or a cold beer and wine store.

Smokes (we indulge in all the vices......:o ) 3.65 US or 5.15 CDN. Here it's about 8.00 CDN

Do the math! :)

Gas 1.90 per US Gallon. Got home today and it was .90 per litre for Reg. We averaged at least 25 percent savings in fuel alone. Easily a 200 dollars savings over our trip - if not more.

I could go on..........

America The Beautiful! :)

>>lower standards

Jeremy ... I agree. But I can't lower my standards!

My favorite beer is Blatz beer in 40 ounce bottles ... I already gotta fight the winos to get in line to buy it!

And when it's sold out ... I move uphill to Red Dog and Old Milwaukee Light (to keep my girlish figure).

Microbrews

The lower standard thing was kind of a joke. Mary and I love a good microbrew. The darker the better in my opinion. I also enjoy a nice hoppy India Pale Ale. Drinking like that does get expensive though, no matter where you are.

Anybody do their own brewing? My uncle does this and makes some great stuff. I have another friend who keeps his own bees and ferments their honey to make Meade wine. Good stuff!

We've done a little brewing. It's fun, although a little space intensive. I got a nice, large, stainless steel stock pot out of the deal!

Al, Would you feel differently if it were (crawfish and shrimp) jambalaya, not stew?
