Original 16

Designed by St. Bernadine Mission Communication Inc. | Country: Canada

“Great Western Brewing Company, from Saskatoon, Canada, enlisted St. Bernadine to develop a new, premium Canadian Pale Ale for the domestic market. The brewery was founded in 1989 by 16 employees, who fought to save their jobs when a merger between Carling and Molson threatened to close the plant. They bought the brewery, and went on to win many international awards for their beer. Over twenty years later, this new beer is a tribute to the original 16 founders of Great Western Brewing Company, and the spirit, passion and dedication they have brought to brewing the best beer possible.

Premium cues include refined typography, ample white space, and silver metallics with gold accents. Initial market reception is extremely favourable.”

    for some reason, i find the “can” looking better then the “bottle”. funny cause it’s usually the other way around.

    I had this beer on Saturday and it was very good! By far the best GW product available (even better than my previous favorite GW Pilsner). The taste is very clean and crisp and no aftertaste at all.
