12 Canadian medalists from the 2012 World Beer Cup

  1. I live in Ontario and it’s no surprise to me that there are no Ont breweries winning awards for regular beers. Come to Ont for a decent pint of dunkel, frutiy wheat beer or a schwarzbier apparently but you are out of luck if you are looking for normal pale ale, lager or ale. There are a few quality brewers in Ontario but its mostly dire beer from conglomerates.

    Why do people buy Molson products, for example? What is wrong with humanity that so many people drink Coors Light or Blue?

  2. The only show/contest that really matters is The Great American Beer Festival held each September in Denver, CO
