How To Drink In Canada (Like a Canadian)

For a country that has dabbled with prohibition – Prince Edward Island in 1901, Yukon during the First World War and the entire country from 1918 to 1920 – latter-day Canadians certainly know how to enjoy a drink, or three.

But while uninspired wines and fizzy factory beers dominated palates here for decades, there’s been a refreshing surge in tasty regional producers throughout the country in recent years. For visitors, that means a golden opportunity to sip some distinctive Canadian tipples – so long as you know what to order and where they are.
