Canadians didn’t invent beer, but we do love it.

We may only drink half the beer per capita as the Czech Republic, (seriously, those people are savage), but I prefer to think we drink to enjoy, not to forget.

Beer fits the national identity of hard working people in search of fun, connection and togetherness. Canada popularized the term two-four and beer plays a big role in our sporting and party cultures. You need only look as far as Canadian cultural staples like Bob and Doug McKenzie, Trailer Park Boys and the Red Green Show to see beer front and centre.

Despite being a heavily regulated industry that stifles innovation and competition, Canada also has a burgeoning craft beer and beer festival scene. Real Man Travels has checked out a few festivals in our day and standouts like the Cask Days are true showcases of the up-and-coming scene. Check out a few of our favourite Canadian breweries including Double Trouble, Lake of the Woods, Hop City, Les Trois Mousquetaires, Sawdust City, Le Trou du Diable, Propeller, Dieu du Ciel!, Bellwoods, Four Wings and Oast House.
