Labatt Takes Alexander Keith's Stateside

At the recent Annual Wholesalers Meeting in Buffalo, Labatt USA announced that it will soon take Alexander Keith's, one of Canada's oldest brands, stateside.

Alexander Keith's is one of several specialty beers that Labatt will be pushing in the United States as the brewer hopes to gain a larger market share of the growing craft beer market (CCC: Keith's is craft beer? Says who?). New Labatt labels now indicate that the beer is still brewed in Canada but its U.S. headquarters are in Buffalo.

Alexander Keith's is expected to appear in the U.S. sometime this spring.

All I'm going to say is it's about time.

Keith's is definitely not an IPA, but it's the only beer Canadian beer that I really like. I just brought some back with me from my trip there and hope that this story holds and I can soon buy it here. I'll make it a regular purchase if it becomes available and is not too expensive.
