I can still remember my first Old Style Pilsner in Ontario…

Old Style Pilsner, aka Vitamin P, aka the Saskatoon Sombrero, has been available in Ontario for a couple months now, after being introduced at The Beer Store with little fanfare.  At least I never heard any fanfare about it–but then again, I’m not from Saskatchewan.

Of course, they don’t carry it at every Beer Store.  My regular spot didn’t have any, so I had to make the trek to Gerrard and that street east of Sherbourne.  But hey, it gave me the opportunity to return some empties, too.

Alas, with six tallboys setting you back $11.25 (if you don’t return any empties), it’s not exactly a budget beer out here.  But with the Stamps and Riders kicking off right about now, I knew I had to drink the Lifeblood of Regina while Calgary runs roughshod over the Roughies.  That being said, I haven’t had this stuff in about eight years, so I don’t even remember what it tastes like.  I hope it’s better than Lakeport…

UPDATE: Calgary somehow managed to lose that game, 36-21. Oh, and for what it’s worth, Pilsner is better than Lakeport.
