Coors is piss water and kokanee isnt much better. Not sure about in BC but the PNW has plenty of excellent beers and breweries to choose from.

I usually drink Yuengling with shots of Jameson throw between beers. Every now and again we'll drink Snowcones but it's a little too sweet of a mix to drink regularly.

Personally I just need a little bit of a buzz to loosen me up. Haven't ridden 100% sober in a long time. For some reason I'm better at rails after drinking..

You know I used to drink something called FireWater, but I can't find it anymore. You westerners still have it out there? Came in a black bottle with flames on it, I think it was 100 proof, but was a cinnamon whiskey type drink, tasted like those atomic fireball candies.

Sounds like this stuff, but Fireball is only 70 proof it's non-whiskey drinker friendly.

Go do Dublin's Gate, ask the tender what to drink, he'll tell you after calling you a fvcker, and then you'll drink until you're happy. Stumble out to the square and buy a Zogg's Dog....done!

How has nobody mentioned blue ribbon? Isn't it the official drink of winter sports? If you cant appreciate a PBR you will never fully appreciate a craft beer.

I'm gonna be in Whistler this year. I've read that Kokanee Gold is a must try and is only available in BC. Are there any other regional drinks I should try? What do you find yourself drinking a lot of in Whistler?

Whistler Brewery Winter Ale. Its a gorgeous drop on a cold winters day, but I would not drink it as my bender drink. A little too rich.

Well we should ask him, it's been a year.

What was your special trip to Whistler drink?

Haha doesn't matter, I am sure there are others that wonder what beer is about in Whistler, or Canada.

I live here. Whistler Brewery will be bringing out there seasonal brews about now. Chestnut Ale is lovely, a bit lighter in taste than the Winter Ale. I tried the Spiced Maple, but it didn't blow my socks off.

Granville Island brewery make a Raspberry Hefeweizen that is not too bad (Vancouver Brewery)

Philips Brewery from Victoria (Van Island) make a really good light to mid bodied beer called Blue Buck. You can get it on tap at 'The Mexican Corner' In Marketplace.
