    Good lord. I haven't thought about Brador since my younger days in the 1980s. It was a go to beer for those of us who wanted the extra ABV.

    I'm pretty sure it started dying off years ago, slowly dropping down to a regional brew, mostly in Quebec. And even then it was hard to find. I'm pretty sure it is retired now. A quick look at the Molson Coors site doesn't show it as a brand.

    I'll always have fond memories, I hope you do too.

    Ahh Brador. For me its the same vintage as Red Dog, XXX and the ill-conceived "Ice Beer Wars" period.

    Have not seen nor heard of it in Ontario in ages.

    I have not seen it here in Quebec. However some cursory googling shows that it is still being sold somewhere. Not quite clear where though. On the untappd thread I found it looked like last year someone had picked it up at the Beer Store so that might be a lead for you!

    I think some of those Untappd check-ins are people checking in the beer from memory or else transferring their rating in from another place. It hasn’t been on the Beer Store website for several years.

    It isn’t listed by Molson on their site either - but that isn’t always kept up to date.

    The advice to contact Molson directly is probably best.
