Funny Video - Stronger Beer, Tim Hicks

Since he's not here, I'll say it - the entire song is sung in American Country Music style. Not only that, Canada doesn't have stronger beer. Sorry, y'all. B)

Are you trying to tell me that that great Canadian institution Molson-Coors would LIE to me ?!?

American Woman - STAY AWAY FROM ME ! :lol:

Listen what I say. ;) I have to keep setting y'all straight on this fallacy.

According to Molson, there is no difference in their beers. Cristina S. Docouto from Molson Customer Service Representative states, “The alcohol content in our beers are the same for both the USA and Canada. the only difference that comes into play is the different sizes of the containers.”

Country music is American? I suppose it originated there.. but music styles pretty much span the globe now. You can go to a country & western festival in Sweden! And originally the music form used fiddles (Ireland), guitars (Spain) and Banjos (Africa)...

So if you want to claim American status for country music across the globe... well, that's a bit on the arrogant side... the reality is that it spans the border and Tim Hicks is a Canadian. And this isn't an ad... it's a music video.

As far as stronger beer goes, it is mostly a myth. Today's beer is no different in ABV%. In the past, alcohol content in American brews was measured differently (alcohol by weight rather than by volume) and many states had laws limiting the maximum alcohol content of beers. I think that this is where this "myth" may have originated. It may have had some truth to it in the past, but certainly not anymore.

Yes, I am a beerologist....

Canadian beer can range from 3.5%-4% to around 7.5%.

You likely have stronger than that, as we do here in the States. Sam Adams makes some pretty strong beer, for one. We also have weaker - Bud Select 55 is only 2.4%.

Perhaps...but I find the strong stuff tastes rather 'peppery'...and two beers turns you into a Las Vegas entertainer.

Agreed. I don't care for the strong stuff myself. I prefer a weak beer - so I can drink more.

I remember an old This Hour/22 Minutes Ad parody called "I am a surly Canadian," which seems apt at times like this. For the life of me I can't find it.

Well............ the general consensus is that if it can't be found on the internet, it didn't happen ......... so it must be something you dreamed-up. ;)

This was how it was explained to me by a member of a wine society around 25 years ago who was also Irish and liked his beer. I'm a dark beer drinker anyway who prefers stout, so don't much care about this bragging match.

Here is a stout for you to try... I really like this one! Being in Abbotsford, you might have a place nearby that carries it on tap.

Back Hand of God Stout

Lean in body and powerful in flavour, Back Hand of God Stout has won many consumers' choice awards. This dry stout is easy to drink, rich and inviting. It is extraordinarily smooth and mildly hopped with a distinct coffee/chocolate presence.

1st place "Best Beer" at the Okanagan Fest-of-Ale, 2000 and 2007; At the Hops, 2000 and 2001; and "Best Organic Alcoholic Beverage" at the Organic Harvest Awards, 2005

Even if our brew did happen to be stronger, who cares? In 'merica it's cheaper. The craft brewed gems in the US rarely go much beyond the buck a beer mark which happens to be about what we pay for the cheapest swill up here.

I know.... we get hosed!
