On Canada Day, along with so many others, I am missing Upper Canada's Colonial Stout. It was a pretty good example of the style and I made use of the current phenomenon of the Mix Six at the Beer Store to take home a couple whenever I dropped in. It's a shame they did away with that but the manager at the store I would go to explained that it wasn't his idea. He felt it was his job to sell beer and his customers wanted to buy it that way but the higher ups thought they ought to buy it differently. I was always reluctant to commit to six or more of something unknown and this changed my buying patterns.
