I didn't think micro breweries did cans as it is considered sacrilege. Still most are better than the big name generic tasteless fizzy pop, even with a metallic taste

I notice that there are a lot of IPAs in Canada and indeed the US, I suspect they won't take over from the European style lager type beers as most seem to be micro or craft breweries.
I wonder if porters ans stouts will feature as well?

I have become partial to the "west coast" style of IPA, it is nothing like Green King IPA for example but has far more flavour than most of the beer produced by the giants like Molson and Labatt. The small independent are brewing stouts. The advantage the small brewers have is that they can produce small production runs and so will try different things so of which work some do not.

The other thing I now take for granted about Canadian beer I that most if not all start at 5% alcohol, the one above is 6.25%. American beer tends to be weaker although there are exceptions.

IPA is India Pale Ale, this was as it suggests brewed for export to India. And cll me a pedant but to give beer life hops are used, but ale shouldnt have hops in it. Ale should be sweeter than bitter, and it has a shorter shelf life.

Now then, is that percentage of alcohol on the can the same as ours or is it the American percentage???? I know that the Americans use a different alcohol strength to the UK.

if I recall the hops were added to ale to increase its life as it was not only a long way yo India but a tad warm so maybe it should be called IPB?

I think we use the same % convention as the UK. I think the US has largely had to do away with the proof percent. If I get a bottle of scotch ion the US it is labelled as it would be in the UK or up here. I have not looked any of this up so I could be totally wrong! I was never a member of Camra

There was a time when beer in England used specific gravity to denote strength it was probably the EU that had us stop using it

I did some research on Wiki about alcohol strength, but I gave up as I dont have a chemistry degree! But the UK did use specific gravity , we stopped on 1st Jan 80.

As for the Canadian beer shown, 6.5% is quite a high alcohol content for beer, wifebeater(stella) is 7%, gunners gold is only 3.9%.
