Alcoholic Air Miles 8 – Carlsberg tallboy

17 Feb

Alcoholic Air Miles is a recurring segment on His, Hers and Theirs. It delves into the secret world of picking up bonus Air Miles from regular, everyday purchases from the Liquor Control Board of Ontario (“LCBO”) stores. Every month, the LCBO changes which items receive bonus Air Miles and He tries to keep you on top of those changes. These are His stories…

Once upon a time, Molson had a license to brew Carlsberg  beer in Canada.  And there was much rejoicing by my friend Ted and people who wanted the allure of drinking a well known beer from overseas that cost as much as a Canadian.  Then one day those evil Danes took it all away and decide to make the beer available in the country only as an import.

After much rebranding (usually having to do with soccer), Carlsberg is no longer brewed in Canada and is only available if it has been shipped over the Atlantic.  And they don’t let you forget it. Seriously, it says IMPORT on the can in big enough letters.

There was another thing about Carlsberg that I was going to wri…oh yeah.  Apparently, Carlsberg employees are no longer allowed to drink on the job.  What a shame.  Now we assurance that the slightly musky, green labeled beer has definitely been brewed by someone who was sober.  Well, unless they drink BEFORE they come into work.  You know, like the rest of us…

Anywho, it’s a good beer (although maybe a little over priced at $2.25) and comes with a bonus air mile if bought at the LCBO this month.  Nice!
