We like beer in Canada. We really, really like it. And its not just a fly-by-night, sordid little affair. Were in it long term. We spend something like $8 billion a year on beer. From barley growers to label designers, more than 170,000 Canadians owe their fulltime jobs directly or indirectly to beer. The rest of us just do what we can to help.

In the long-awaited follow up to Notes on a Beermat, Pashley explores beer in Canada, covering many salient points, including chapters on

Frre Ambroise, Who Started It All (Unless He Didnt)

Us Against Them: Canadians and Our Neighbours to the South

When Canadians Knew Squat: The Stubby in Our Lives

Beer: Isnt It Bad for You and Bad for the Planet?

Ale or Lager? East Is East and West Isnt
