Creemore is not worth transporting from Canada, quality has definitely slipped a lot recently, and I only started drinking it like 3-4 years ago. Best macro, but still a macro. Neustadt 10W30 is really tasty imo, haven't had their other beers, although, I dunno if I'd say it is transport worthy. 10W30 is really good, but there are just as good beers in America to be had in similar styles (I'd drink Founders Dirty Bastard over this) Mill St. Organic and Mill St. Stock are not good. However, Mill St. Tankhouse is great, and their coffee porter is good as well (although, there are better coffee beers, ie: Founders Breakfast Stout.) Unibroue is GREAT, Trois Pistoles is a spectacular beer. I love Fin Du Monde as well, Maudite is a little odd, and I've only had fruit Ephemeres (Pomme and Cassis) and the Cassis was great, the Pomme, meh. If you bring back one beer from Canada, make it Trois Pistoles or Fin du Monde. Another great brewery is Dieu De Ciel, Quebec brewer. Their beer Peche Mortel is phenomenal, it's an imperial coffee stout clocking in at a heavy 9.5% and, name befitting, black as sin. They make tons of wild beers, but I've only had 2 of them sadly. Scotch Irish brewing is another interesting one, Corporal's Bitter Brown ale is a great brown ale that is heavily hopped to I believe over 80 IBU. I just picked up a few bottles of John By Imperial Stout, which I've heard good things about as well from the same brewery. And they come in stubbies, a true Canadian beer!
