I think it is 50. I will be not snobbish but they had better hold up to the technical analyzers we have brought in from the Mid-west.

Gosh Alan, I thought we had plenty in common. Maybe not politically, but you can get a lot of mileage out of beer and early Ramones albums. I used to love McAuslan's beers - I haven't had one in years, but I very fondly recall the Oatmeal Stout. It's even better if you get it on tap at a Montreal brasserie or sidewalk cafe during the Jazz fest.
Do try the Eric's Red from Quidi Vidi breweries if you can get it from Ontario's evil beer and liquor monopolies.

I once bought the lone six of their 1892 but it was never restocked. It were very noyce. What does 1892 mean to a son of Newfoundland like yourself, by the way?

St. Ambroise Pale is one of my preferred domestic beers. . .although I've been drinking more wine than beer lately. I still have a six-pack of their Oatmeal Stout in the cellar, now that I think about it. I have to remember to ask for "Saint Ambrose" here in Whitby . . . the French pronunciation gets a blank stare from the Beer Store employees.

Having one right after the Shipyard IPA is an impressive comparison. Less body for sure but not much and not anything like the corn sugar pap that goes for Canadian pale ale mostly these days. The head quickly fades but the flavour palate is very fine.
