One of the most-read posts on this blog is an ode to Old Style Pilsner I composed some 14 months ago. Granted, it’s not in the top 10 or top 20–but rather near the bottom of the top 40. Even still, some 265 people (and counting) have come to this site trying to find out where to buy Old Style Pilsner in Ontario. And until very recently, the answer was nowhere.
But that all changed sometime earlier this month. Though I can’t find an announcement anywhere, The Beer Store now lists Pil amongst its products, with 15 cans currently on sale for 21 bucks. They also sell bottles, albeit only in 24s. You do not wanna drink 24 of those beers, though, trust me!
Now, I’m not sure whether demand was driven by a recent influx of Saskies to The Centre of the Known Universe, or perhaps a resurgence in popularity of the Canadian cult classic FUBAR and its sequel, FUBAR II. Hey, maybe all those hits on my blog had something to do with it. In any case, I’ll no longer hafta drink the bitter Czech semi-doppleganger whenever the Riders penetrate the Stampeder defence this summer–though it seems I’ll need to schlep down to Gerard and Seaton to get it.
