We have many many many different brands and type of beer up here for you to try. We travel back and forth across the 49th many m at times as we have relatives in the USA and we also vacation / camp in the USA, so over the years we have had the odd ( grin) occasion of having booze at the boarder going north or south.
The only reason I bring beer into the USA is if my Cuz in Oregon wants some her fav Canadian suds, other than that I have USA beer on board.
Try some of our beers up here they are pretty good.
Have a great time up here.

Was offered Heineken at famous seafood restaurant at Prince Rupert.
Now if you plan to buy hard liquor for Canada vacations, avoid purchase in Washington state. Learned the hard way they have high taxes on liquor.

Can each person bring 24 cans each?

Sorry, way off topic, but this reminds me of a famous quote:

Buy at the duty free when coming north, our liquor prices will scare you. You can bring more but the duty on the excess won't make it worthwhile.

Does that mean 30 packs are for Daylight Savings? [emoticon]

Totally agree with Soup we have quite an array of craft beers along with those made by the breweries.
With enough testing you will surely find one that you like.
Enjoy your visit to our fabulous country.

Lots of stuff up here is expensive. You really have to know your prices in the US and Canada for the identical items, or you might wind up paying more up here.
The US$ has about a 30% advantage over the C$ as of today.
US$1.00 = C$1.305 which appears to be a great deal for Americans visiting Canada.
However, some things that are sold in both countries can cost twice as much up here, or more. If the item is more than 30% more up here than it is back home in the USA, you're paying more for it here, in spite of your forex advantage.

Just a friendly fyi and reminder for visitors from the US. Most of you who live on the border probably already know you can pay more here, for the same stuff you can get at home.
It's often the hidden or overt taxes in our retail systems and (imo) greed by Canadian retailers. They over charge for stuff because they know most Canadians will just shrug, and pay it.
