As one of the best-selling Canadian beers, Labatt Blue is a clean, refreshing pilsner with a distinctive hoppy aroma. The delicate character with a slightly sweet aftertaste makes it a favorite among the masses. Originally, it was called "Labatt Pilsner Lager," but as the brew grew in popularity, it was nickamed "blue" after the bold blue label. In Canada, the Labatt brewery is as legendary as the beer it produces. Founded in 1847 by John Kinder Labatt, it has survived prohibition, a kidnapping, and over 165 years' worth of incredible events. Today, this beer is crowd-pleaser for every occasion, from a hockey games to everyday gatherings.
