Mary, I'll see if I can get Pam's Blue Beer recipe and post it here, ok?
More info than you really need, but it may keep your eyes off CNN.
The year was 1951, the Toronto Maple Leafs were Stanley Cup Champions, Louis Saint Laurent was Prime Minister of Canada, and the Labatt Brewing company had just launched its Pilsener Lager, setting the trend for lager beers in Canada.
Labatt Pilsner became an instant success. When it was introduced in Manitoba, the beer was nicknamed “Blue” for the color of its label and the company’s support of Winnipeg’s CFL franchise, the Blue Bombers. The nickname stuck, and eventually became the official name of the beer. Labatt Blue was launched in the US market in 1954.
