By the time I got home from work, the Canada vs. Norway game had already been decided. Regardless, it was still nice to crack open a Mill Street Coffee Porter and enjoy the sweet leftovers, otherwise known as a four goal third period. Seeing as Mill Street is one of the fine beers being served at the Ontario House site in Vancouver, it was as close as I was going to get to the games. The surprising thing about the Coffee Porter is that I’m not really sure who drinks it, other than me. It’s not really a brand that Mill Street pushes (never seen it on tap) and seems to get beat out by seasonal offerings from other brewers for the beer geek crowd. But as long as they keep brewing it, I’ll keep drinking it (now I’ve probably jinxed things).
While we’re talking about hockey, I watched the 3-2 shootout victory over the Swiss at a Cineplex theatre after my mom and dad bought a pass for the whole Olympics. It was a fun and interesting way to watch the game, but one that I don’t think will ever really take off, at least not with adult males. Having a beer to go along with the big screen would’ve been really nice, especially when the ads are constantly reminding you of the fact you’re not drinking. Until you can have a beer in the theatre, it’ll be families and the 50+ group watching events like the Olympics.
