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.

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.

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.
