@McGovern: Are you suggesting that cheap booze is a source of bliss then? I'd say it`s more likely a source of alcoholism, but whatever. Our alcohol is more expensive, but that doesn`t really bother me, because those tax dollars help pay for treatment of alcoholism and cirrhosis.
@tsiemens: The notion that American beer is weaker is a myth. In the US` proud tradition of keeping to archaic systems of math and measurement, they measure alcohol by mass instead of by volume, which is how the rest of the world does it.

Ontario has a vice on beer and beer prices as a major tax revenue source. I can usually buy the same beer for half the money accross the border in new york state, although its sometimes a weaker alcohol content.
