Where Are You, Labatt?

Where Are You, Labatt?

Canada’s King of Beers


We’re always looking for a new discovery.  And with the many places we find and enjoy, I really wish that Connecticut restaurants would expand the beer offerings to include a few from our northern neighbor, and I’m not talking about Massachusetts.  As I order the latest and greatest martinis, Dave ever so hopefully asks for his favorite bottle of hoppy happiness; Labatt Blue, only to be endlessly disappointed.  So the poor guy settles for a Corona instead.  We’re so tired of the menu fossils: Bud, Bud Light, Coors, Amstel, Heineken, Sam Adams, Corona, etc. that populate every beer list ad nauseum.  Once in a while it would be nice to see some Canadian beers included on the lists.

According to AskMen.com, a Canadian lifestyle website for men, the top four Canadian beers are 4- Moosehead, 3- Molson Export, 2- Molson and #1…drum roll please… Labatt Blue

Labatt Blue


Yes, this good old Canadian pilsner has a historic place in the lives of Canucks everywhere.  Its appeal stretches from coast to coast and generation to generation.  Labatt Blue is the #1 selling Canadian beer in the world, so why is it that we can’t find it here in good old Connecticut? 

To quote the Labatt website: “Labatt Blue is a clean, refreshing pilsner with a distinctive hoppy aroma, a delicate character, and a slightly sweet aftertaste.”  To compare: Labatt Blue has 135 calories and 5% ABV compared to Budweiser at 145 calories and 5% ABV for 12 ounces.  Our beer-drinking border brothers in New York, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine enjoy their Labatt Blue and Blue Light the way you all drink Bud and Bud Light.  Wouldn’t it be refreshing to walk into a local bar and order one up here in Connecticut?  Try it, you may like it. 

Because of our continued quest to find this crisp pilsner locally, we’ve unearthed an adventurous few who do carry it and proudly include Labatt Blue in their beer list.  What these fine establishments also discovered is that once it’s on the list (surprise, surprise) people really do buy it.  And their order generally includes a comment or two about being pleasantly surprised to find it among the beer offerings.

If you’re of the same mind and would like to enjoy a cold bottle of Labatt Blue here in Connecticut, ask your favorite bar to stock it for you.  And be sure to tell us if they oblige.  We’re keeping a running list of all the great bars and restaurants who join the “Blue Revolution.”  So help Dave on his quest to make Labatt readily available everywhere, join the “Blue Revolution” today.
