Canada Explained – 1 Myth At A Time – Beer


In a global society that the Earth is becoming, I feel it is time to explain what Canadians are.  This will be especially helpful to, well, everyone, because we are kind of invisible.  Once you have seen this series of videos, you will be experts on a lot of things Canadian.

Our first foray will be some factoids on our love of beer.

About John

I enjoy travel, sports, music and anything else that jumps up at me for the moment, which is why I blog. There will be lots of music and travel posts and a smattering of sports and humour. I enjoy promoting Canada and am unabashedly a proud Canuck.

  1. I’m not sure we should be proud of this. haha! According to the little color coded map, America is equal to England and Ireland. That’s really saying something. LOL!
    (The other visuals haven’t popped up yet.)

  2. Haha! They’re always funny, eh?

  3. Wow…shocked. Totally shocked. As a fellow Canuck I can’t help but feel we may not be exerting enough effort into this…or maybe Global warming has something to do with it. Hmmmm…..

  4. One thing u as Canadians can be proud of is…… Bret “the hitman Heart!!!!! What a wrestler he was. He was one of my top wrestlers.

  5. I am not sure if you saw my Friday post on my blog. I posted about Canadian’s even having nicer robbers.

  6. Ha… Bob and Doug, a prized album in my collection. It was hilarious when I was 10 and it still is. Not too surprised on the beer thing cause I bet many switch to good ol Canadian rye whiskey once summer is over

  7. I think you will regain your consumptive eminence when adjusted for population.
