The Ten Greatest Canadian Albums

...Are less important that the ten greatest Canadian beers. If you're making a trip to the Great White North, be sure to taste some of these. Also be sure to hit up a good Canadian party. More beer and weed than you could imagine.
1Neil Young
Harvest


Wild Rose. Velvet Fog. Brewed in Calgary, Alberta, don?t let the American
percentage in this beer fool you. This beer was a gold medal winner at the 2008
Great Canadian Beer Festival in Victoria. A rich North American style wheat
beer, sporting 50% wheat malt, and 50% barley malt, which gives this
unfiltered brew a hazy, golden colour with a tangy fresh character. A little
harder to come by than your Moosehead or Keiths, but definitely worth the
purchase if you find some.
2D.O.A.
Hardcore 81


Unibroue Maudite. Maudite has a true Quebecois name that comes from the
legend of the Chasse-Galerie, otherwise known as the legend of the Flying
Canoe. The story goes that a group of lumberjacks made a deal with the devil to
fly home in their old wooden canoes to make it home in time for Christmas.
Maudite was born in November 1992, and was the first strong beer to be sold
throughout Quebec grocery stores. It also just so happens to be the first beer
brewed in North America that improves with age. Drink a young Maudite and
you?ll find it very smooth, however when served after a few years of storage, its
flavour begins to take on that of a port. A rich tasting, mahogany-coloured
premium beer with a distinct and beautifully complex taste. Unibroue
recommends serving it cool, but not cold. To make an 8% beer that tastes good
is an amazing feat of it's own.
3Rush
Moving Pictures


Steam Whistle Pilsner. Brewed next to the CN tower at the infamous and
historic St. John?s Street Roundhouse. Steam Whistle Pilsner is a golden beer
with a refreshing and distinctive aroma of hops, with a clean, crisp finish. After
taking a good swig of this beer you?ll understand why their motto is ?Make one
kind of beer and make it the best in the world.? Obviously this is brewed in
Toronto, Ontario.
4Our Lady Peace
Clumsy


Alexander Keith?s. Brewed in Halifax, this is one of the best known beer's in
Canada. It features the perfect blend of hops and barley which gives it a crisp
and fresh flavour. Very easy to find.
5The Tragically Hip
Fully Completely


Kokanee. Brewed in Creston, British Columbia it is a light, flavourful beer.
Typically Canadian Youths ?Entry Level? beer. Despite it?s popularity with youth,
the beer itself is worthy of consumption from people of any age.
6Daggermouth
Turf Wars


Moosehead Lager. A delicious Canadian lager that?s bound with both sweet malt
and hop essence. Moosehead goes down extremely easy, if you?re a little vanilla
with your beer tastes, I?d definitely recommend this one. It?s pretty rare that
anyone doesn?t enjoy a few of these on a warm summers evening. Distribution
of this beer has been expanding quite a bit in the last few years, it?s quite easy
to find these at any Liquor Store. It is from New Brunswick.
7Arcade Fire
Funeral


Mill Street Tankhouse Ale. From Toronto, Ontario the brewery earned itself the
2008 Canadian brewery of the year award. Mill Street Tankhouse Ale is
complex, malty texture beer with subtle chocolate, coffee, citris and honey
finishes. Let this beer sit on your palate a a minute and try and pick out the
flavours. Mill Street Tankhouse Ale is a very unique Canadian beer.
8Godspeed You! Black Emperor
Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas To


Okanagan Spring Pale Ale. From Vernon, British Columbia. A clear and copper
ale that is fruity on the palate, and finishes off dry with hearty hops. Also a
toughy to find in your everyday Liquor Store, so if your in the Okanagan Valley,
or anywhere in South East BC, you should be able to find it.
9Strapping Young Lad
Alien


Old Style Pilsner. I am obligated to include this beer on the list. it is the best
selling beer of all time in Saskatchewan and very easy to obtain. A perfect drink
on a hot summer day at one of Saskachewan's 1000+ lakes.
10Counterparts
Prophets


Wild Rose: Alberta Crude. For this one you will have to head over to Calgary,
Alberta as this beer is only available on tap at a few bars. The "Wild Rose Pub"
and "Petes Peanut Pub." It has a perfect smokey flavour that is similar to the
taste of the legendary Irish beer, "Guinness." However, it is still different
enough to warrant a taste. Best served with peanuts *hint hint, head over to
Pete's. I'll meet you there.
