Canadian beer outside Canada

Just out of curiosity, what kind of Canadian beer do bars sell outside of Canada (if any)?

Canadian beer in the states is not canadian beer. It's all 4% max and tastes like watered down crap. I feel bad for the poor US, I don't know what I'd do without Canadian beer.... ~tear~ Wait, I'd move to Canada, that's what I'd do

to answer your question:
Molson Canadian and Labatt Blue are sold outside Canada. You won't find Keiths, or moosehead though.

Does that work the other way too? US beer in Canada is different than US beer in the States?

Molson Canadian was sold to an American company so really it is now an american beer just like every company that we produce as soon as it gets somewhere the americans buy it and put in another wallmart soon we will have a Target so we can purchase really crapy stuff for cheap since they are buying The Hudson Bay Company. Dont get me wrong about our neibors down south my moms a yank and she drinks Coors but we still love her.

Umm please do some research into the Molson / Coors merger (MERGER). Molson merged with Coors, they wern't sold to Coors. Also they didn't and wouldn't sell the Canadian brand...Molson will still operate in Canada.

Hey Jand first off all i want to say people like you drive me nuts. Usally when you quote someone you ask them permision. Or else something like this happends first of all where did you hear this and lets see some facts what are we all supposed to be on our knees beleiving every word you have to say. And if you did hear that from somewhere maybe would you think that Coors wouldnt want the canadian public to know that they bought out part of Canadas pride our beer i think sales would slightly drop. But even if im wrong and your right wich i really dont care your still a loser who does that do you even know me NO so beat it! And i am sure all the kids that visit this side want to read whats at the bottom of your thread.

Hey Martin, you would typically find the big name brands being sold overseas, typically the best sellers or brand leader, like Molson Canadian and Labatt Blue. Not many microbrews export overseas, as their beer usually contains no preservatives and has a low shelf life. I have seen Canadian and Blue in parts of Asia and in the UK, and both companies are actively targeting Latin America (especially Brazil) and China.

5alive, as publicly traded companies, Molson and Coors have to disclose this information in order to comply with securities regulations. It is a merger where both companies will exchange shares.

FYI, this is fairly common. Labatt is part of Interbrew SA, a Belgian brewing group. Molson is partially owned by Fosters (Australia) and Miller (USA/South Africa).

5alive loosen up a bit, everyone's entitled to their opinions and I dont think JonD was doing a personal attack on you, he was just making a statement and joining in the conversation.

maybe you need someone's permission to quote them in a scientific journal, but once you write something on a public board, it's public property

anyways, at the bars here they sell like everyone else said Molson and Labatt, HOWEVER at the liquor stores they sell many more, and they sell various kinds of Molson and Labatt, ice, blue, etc

Labatt Blue is quite good in my opinion, but I can not stand Molson (however I've only tried Ice, so I would say I haven't given it a fair chance)

Maby you spend alot of time on your knees, I don't know you and really don't care. What you do in private is your own business.

Do a search, many news sites offer correct info regarding your first ignorant post. I was just telling you your info was incorrect and you personally attack me....
