    Planning to go hiking near Montreal next summer, so weight is an issue. Are there any great Canadians beers available in cans? (Stylewise I'm happy to try anything but lagers. I've tasted some bottled Unibrouves, they were awesome and that's all I know about Canadian beer. :) )

    In Ontario you can get the following decent beers in cans:

    Muskoka Mad Tom IPA / Dark
    Great Lakes Crazy Canuck Pale Ale / Devils Pale Ale
    Nickel Brook Headstock IPA
    Kensington Augusta Ale
    Double Trouble Hops & Robbers IPA
    Neustadt 10W30 Brown Ale

    My picks would be the Mad Tom and the Crazy Canuck. I can't really think of any decent Quebec beers that come in cans. Although I think Simple Malt has a few beers that you can get in mini kegs.

    All of Creemore's offering are canned. Neustadt Scottish Ale is as well as several Wellington brews.

    They aren't really helping you as no one has listed good craft beers available in cans in Quebec. When you get into Montreal I would check out Peluso to see what they have and recommend. Not a lot of Quebec breweries can that I have seen and have been told it is due to recycling regulations.

    Red Racer seems to be available all over the country. I would go with that.
    IF Nickel Brook Headstock IPA is available I'd go that route as well.

    Lucky, Nova Scotia, Alberta lost it when CC decided they wanted to supply the LCBO and the States more than Alberta.

    Correction Red Racer is back in Alberta now, had one today at a coffee shop in Calgary but this does not help out our friend looking for canned beer in Quebec.
