    Dumb question...but i've been spending way to much on jack and coke lately because normally i don't drink beer because in the states they add preservatives that give me some nasty hang overs....sometimes all it takes is one beer to set me off. I hear that cnd beer is really good...could anyone explain this and suggest what brand might work for me....

    Depends on what you like and where you are and how much you want to spend. In BC my preferance is Pacific Traditional Lager made by Pacific Western Brewing. CHEAP and good. A close second is Lucky Lager made by Labatts. If you go East I'm not sure if either of these Beers are available. If you don't mind spending more Sleemans Honey Brown Ale is really good but almost double the price of Traditional.

    I don't think Sleemans has preservatives but I'm not sure about the others. The cans say nothing.

    I've been drinking Rickards Red for the last little while and really enjoying it. It's a darker beer, I believe brewed by Molson's. Should be available across the country...

    Man Richards Red is a meal ina glass.

    If you haven't had anything to eat, that'll fill the spot. But I only drink it out of the tap.

    Bottles I drink:

    Steam Whistle

    ****This is by far the best beer I have ever had, as expensive as MGD, but brewed every week in a micro brewery in Toronto. I live about an hour from there, so I have never had a bottle over 5 days old! It has the date right on the bottle for ya*****

    I really dig the Pabst cans, and Busch tall boy mix. 6 of each,and I am at a happy state of inebreation. Not sober, and not to drunk to be hitting on the chicks that you could confuse with a pit bull.

    I am currently drinking Sleeman Original, and I a cannot complain at all! HAHAHA

    Moose head is also really good.

    If you got the money, go Steam Whistle. Granted I have encounter one person who prefered Bud over Steam, but I quickly hit him. And he came eventually.

    SKA brewing in Durango, CO doesnt use any preservatives in their beer. They have Pinstripe, True Blonde, Busta Nut, 10 Pin and some others, but you should be able to get those four around Colorado and some other states at a decent liquor store.

    You can get bombers from SKA too called Decadent (10%), True Blonde Dubbell, Nefarious Ten Pin and they have local series here in Durango. The Decadent gets you really drunk on just one beer.

    :wink1:
    Ever had a Luck. I really do like it. It's funny because it used to cost less it's got the reputation of a welfare beer. And yes I'm cheap when it comes to beer. There's a lot of high doller beer that is horrible. I do really like Sleemans Honey Brown but it's too expensive and not worth it.

    Since were on the topic of beer, I think the U.S. has some really good beer and at a fair price. Last time I was in Washington State I was drinking Alaskan Amber and Henry Weinhard's Blonde Ale. Both cost less than our cheapest beer.:wink1:
