about

In celebration of Canada's 150 birthday, one of the country's most avid collectors of breweriana showcases a stunning selection of beer labels dating from the late 1870s to the present day.

What's more Canadian than beer? Craft brewing has exploded across Canada, reinvigorating the country's love and appreciation for its favourite beverage. But Canadians have always treasured beer-a fact evidenced by these 150 vintage labels that showcase both stunning skills in typography and a true passion for the brewski.

In addition to the earliest vintage labels from iconic breweries like Dow and Labatt, discover an eye-opening cross-section of the country's beer-brewing history through the artwork of ales, porters, lagers, and malts from brewers east to west, many of which are long forgotten.

Reviews

Rated 2 out of 5 by from beer this book is an actual hardcover book with just a small pic of the label on one page and a brief little history of the beer on the other. I thought it was gonna be something you could take out and display the labels and stuff in your bar/mancave. I guess its still alright as a coffee table book you can leave out and ppl can go through but kinda disappointed. It should be listed as a hardcover book not paper over board
