It is enough to make a Canadian cry in his beer. I am Canadian, well no more, time to make up a new saying I was Canadian.

Hockey and beer are just two things you don't mess with. Oh I almost forgot timmys coffee. Make mine a double double to go.

Almost.... They merged with a company from the states..... First Labatt and now Molsons.... I guess it's Moosehead, Keith's and Sleeman that will get my money now!

Nope Molson brewed Coors products for Canada and vise versa.
Molson also stopped brewing Carlsberg ealier in teh year (there contract ran out, there was a big fuss over it too)

rickhd, have you forgotten that Timmie's "merged" with Wendys International in 1995 (TH Canada is 95% franchise owned and operated though and does remain an seperate entity)

The beer is going to stay the same and be brewed here.

That's American too....HAHAHAHA.....Owned by Wendy's in Ohio. Timmy's is even more American than Molson Coors.

I guess it's Moosehead, Keith's and Sleeman that will get my money now!
Better check who own's Keiths.....

For the record - Carlsberg is now brewed in Canada by the same company that brews Moosehead and Tuborg (Premium Beer Company).
