What beers best represent Canada? Here’s what the PM chose
In the midst of all the Sochi hockey madness, our PM challenged American pres Barack Obama to a friendly gentlemen’s wager: a case of beer for the world leader whose men’s and women’s hockey teams performed best during the Games. Canada won, and Obama, being a good sport, shipped a couple two-fours of the White House’s signature ale to the Canadian Embassy in Washington.
@NSCPress YES! Thank you! The @WhiteHouse beer is safe & sound in #AmbDoer’s office… for now :) #viewfrom501 pic.twitter.com/AjHp0DNFPU

But one question loomed large in the minds of at least a dozen people: what beer would Stephen Harper have chosen to represent Canada, if he’d lost the bet? We now have the answer, thanks to a tweet published on the PM’s official account earlier this week:
Correction: the beer on offer was @beausallnatural & @BigRockBrewery Grasshopper. MT @connect2canada #BeerDiplomacy http://t.co/ayuLDgmbdj

So, kudos to Ontario brewery Beau’s All Natural and Alberta’s Big Rock: the prime minister thinks your brews are good enough to serve as pally diplomatic props in his bromance with the leader of the free world.

Being from Brockville, Ontario, I discovered Beau’s back in college and despite the prices being steep for a lad on a college budget the taste made all the difference. If Mr. Harper actually selected the beers himself, I finally can say I agree with the man on at least one solid point – beer.
So Stephen Harper thinks Canada is bland and uninteresting?
