So, with the NHL season getting underway this week, I was looking for a beer to drink when the Flames played the Jets. Since they returned to Winnipeg a few years back, I have not found an appropriate alcohol to associate with this franchise…until I was browsing the craft beer section of my local LCBO last week, and I came across this British brew:
I mean, how perfect is this? It’s got the team colours, a picture of a fighter jet on the can–and it also happens to share its name with the Winnipeg football team. (And to think, all this time I’d been drinking Labatt Blue!)
This full bodied amber ale has a similar taste and mouthfeel to Rickard’s Red, but at just 4.4%, I could shotgun a boatload of these babies without getting jet-faced. Cuz hey, when the Flames blitzkrieg Winnipeg 6-3, you know I’ll be cracking a few ice-cold brews, bro!!!!
