I saw this picture today on Awesomeology. The picture has been around for years, but it made me think of my younger days. We would pile in a car, with the sole destination of crossing the bridge into Canada and hitting The Beer Store. At the time, the $ exchange rate was much better, so we were getting a heck of a deal on the beer we’d bring back.
If you haven’t had the opportunity to visit one of these, they are pretty amazing. You walk back into a walk in cooler like grocery store. There are aisles and stacks of just beer.
For kicks, I Googled “The Beer Store Canada” and found their website. I was quite impressed. They have a huge selection of beers to browse, and a slick store locater tool. I haven’t visited Canada in several years, partially because I’ve heard it takes a while to get across the border, but it sure would be fun to check out the ol’ Beer Store again. Great to see they are still around. Wonder if they’d consider venturing the business to the States?! In the mean time… who’s up for a road trip? 🙂
