I bought this locally brewed beer today purely for the awesome label.

I AM SO SHALLOW.



Although I'm also partial to this label for its *cough* uniquely refreshing depiction of our provincial legislature...



Apparently this one — another local brew — uses hops imported from Tasmania. (Which is 8,300 miles away last time I checked.)



Yeah, sometimes I suspect our Vancouver Island microbrewers may be imbibing more than beer:



...And I think I'll stop on this delightfully asinine note ;-)

OMG, Pandamonium looks like the awesomest thing ever!! I'd ask how it is, but seeing as it's 650mL of 11% beer, I expect I might waiting awhile for a reply ;)

HA HAAAA! I was wondering who'd spot the alc. by vol. first ;-)

TBH I'm scared to drink the stuff. At 11% it's twice as Canadian as the average beer! I'll probably stretch that puppy over 2 or 3 evenings later this week. *iz easily snockered*

(Tonight I'm enjoying a modest raspberry wheat ale... a comparative teatotaller's delight at merely 5%. "Pairs well with sunglasses and patios" :-)

Hehe, well, it wasn't that long ago I made what could have been a dire mistake by NOT noticing the alc. by vol. on the very quick pint I ordered to fill a spare half-hour before a Board meeting. I was about halfway through the thing before my eye caught the tap and saw the 8.5% there... thankfully it turns out I can chug at that level and still feign sobriety through a meeting. *whew*

Nice choice with the raspberry wheat, I have a fondness for Kawartha Lakes' version out here, it's a lovely summer pint :)

I love the donkey of Hopocalypse! He's got such a "don't give a f..." countenance.

Someone needs to introduce Donkey to the wild-eyed squirrel from the Dirty Squirrel label. It looks like it could show him a good time :-)

Panda's with laser beams from their eyes would make me buy anything as well *nods*.

I know, right? There's a bigger version here. I WANT THIS ON A T-SHIRT SO BADLY.

Oh wow those are purrrty. I'm torn between the Phillips accusation ale and the Instigator Doppelbock. Are these all Canadian brews did you say? Because my mind instantly went to Rodney McKay chugging one down while John did something to his knickers. Fandom makes my mind go all one-track.

*nods* I know not that fandom, but, yes. These are not only Canadian brews, they are British Columbia brews (cf. Lumberjack Sketch) and AFAIK they're all from Vancouver Island. That's where I live, a honking big island off the west coast of Canada, about the size of England. More bears, though. Also, more mullets.

Oops sorry my bad, SGA. Rodney McKay's Canadian and has this thing about good Canadian beer.

BC! You know what I'm going to say, right? Wrong island, but oh I bet yours is just as pretty.

See this is why you and I are friends, because for two years of my life I went to school in this country town in Australia and it was the place in Australia that every mullet came to die. Old men with old mullets, young men with young mullets, and all the women had mullets and all the children had mullets. I see you a mullety island and raise you a mullety CONTINENT. Come to my arms.

ETA: BC is, in fact, not anywhere *near* Prince Edward Island and I have failed completely at friendship and geography. Please ignore that I am alive.

Heyyyy, it's OK *pats on back*, I had absolutely no idea what you meant by 'wrong island' until you explained it. I also am useless at geography, especially that of islandy things. I think of NZ's north island as "hand making an L-sign" and Australia as "that big lopsided one with the ear tufts". Also Madagascar is really Africa's secret diet-destroying guilt nibble. Does that help?

Plus you definitely win the mullety competition of mulletude, although the mullets be plentiful in this land. Did you know they date back to Nero? It's a Wikipedia trufax! Also had not realised until today that Superman went through his own special mullet phase. What HAPPENED to this planet in the nineties???

Oh the worst thing is that my hairdresser is also from Vancouver Island, and I have had this *exact* same conversation with her. My facepalm to the power of infinity.

Ahaha, Madgascar, you're so right. Africa's wee snacktime treat.

O Supes, why u so shaggy. I think mullets must have been the first haircut to emerge from the slime. What could be easier for the walking fish than the low-maintenance short fringe and long back? All you need is a mirror and the absence of shame, which, fish, yes.

WOWWWWW, these are the COOLEST labels I've ever seen! I'm trying to pick a favourite, but I don't think I can! :D
