Alright, alright… oh no, wait a sec…
Ok, now I am back. Today I am having a bottle of Stanley Park Belgian Amber Ale before watching game three against the LA Kings. Why is this so fitting?
Stanley Park: In 1915 the Vancouver Millionaires won the Stanley Cup a stone’s throw from Stanley Park in the Denman Arena. The arena stood on the Northwest corner of Denman and Georgia. It was leveled by a coal fire in 1936. There is no memorial (that I know of), no trace of it, and hardly a memory.
Belgian: The Canucks are like a certain mythical being from Belgium: The Smurfs. (I have watched this movie every day for a week with my two year old). They don’t rely on their size, but their ingenuity, and have a lot of different characters. The Canucks, like the Smurfs, are well loved, but also have haters who, like the evil and ugly wizard Gargamel, spend every waking minute of every day despising their blue (and green) butts.
Amber Ale: Being two (three now) games down, Vancouver is running up to an amber light in this series. We will see if they can gun it and beat the red.
As for this beer, it is just awesome. It has really gotten better over the last couple of years, and is one of my favourites.
If you have tried this as well, and have your own opinion, I would be interested in hearing it. Please use the comment section below.
