    We could get Gale's Prize Old Ale, Rauchenfelser Steinbier, Tomas Hardy's, Schlenkerla Rauchbier, and Rodenbach Grand Cru fairly easily from the MLCC. I was living and brewing in Saskatchewan - that's the year that we brewed the Honey Thistle Wit in spring and Strathdee Old Barleywine in December. I joined BA cause I needed to trade with others across the country to do an all Canadian Microbrew beer tasting at the Bushwakker.

    10 years ago there was a transition period in which Shaftebury and Bowen sold out and Phillips was still struggling to make a decent beer but I think for me the introduction of Tree Hophead was the sign that things were heading in the right direction. Things are so much better now in BC beer than 10 years ago.
