Canadian is a local beer in Montreal. Montreal is where MolsonCoors is headquartered. The brewery there has been in operation since Molsons was founded in the late 1700s. You made that poor waiter look like an idiot over a decision his employer made that he has no say in.
I have to admit, I had to go back and edit this because my original reply was a bit angrier in tone.
I think you missed two points here.
First I said "good local beer"
Secondly, the fact that the waiter implied that Canadian was from Canada and hence not local to Quebec, was what I got the biggest laugh out of. That is where he made himself look like an idiot - no help from me.
