I was only 18 when I left California for Denmark. The drinking age was (is?) 21. Got to Denmark and started drinking Tuborg and Carlsberg. I still like both of those beers.

I remember buying Baby Duck in Ontario during summer vacations! Still underage, same technicolor effects! Blast from the past.

Baby Duck was a fizzy sweet wine.

At one time it was one of very few drinkable, Canadian made wines. That has changed. We now have some really nice wine produced here, as well as really nice ice wine and ice cider.

From what I remember Baby Duck and Baby Bear is best enjoyed standing in in a circle and passing it around.

I think we ran in similar circles, Rock!

Glasses, we don't need no stinkin' glasses! We have the bottle!

Oh, and Cold Duck, the parent of Baby Duck.

Interesting about Canadian wine now being much better now, Taxy. We did love our Baby Duck back in the day.

What beer do I like? Why, the one in my hand! Seriously though, I like my old local brewery's offering, but they don't sell Great Lakes Brewing stuff up here...a distributor problem. *sigh* So I bring the contraband back when we go see the kids. Hope the Christmas Ale is on the shelves when we visit later this year.

I don't like the bitter taste of hops so I tend towards the maltier brews. Also, a new craft brewery opened in a nearby town. So far we've tried Lake Ale (meh-ish) and Meistersdorf Dopplebock (yummy). Empty growler waiting for the next time.

The famous "Banned in Boston" people! Imagine how much havoc they could have wreaked if there had been fax machines and the internet during their time. There is a book coming out next month called "Banned in Boston" by Neil Miller. I plan on reading it when it lands on the library shelves.

If you like Stout, you should be able to get Lion from Sri Lanka. It is on my top 5 list.

The other 4:

Pilsner from Foothills in W-S, NC.

Anything Ommegang. Cooperstown's answer to Belgium.

Legend Brown Ale, a local Richmond Brewery.

Belgium Lambics
