Desperados at The Beer Store

New to the import selection at The Beer Store is Desperados, a 5.9% lager from France's Fischer that is flavoured with tequila. This unique beverage has previously been available at a couple of bars in Toronto, but this is the first time it has been available for retail purchase. Desperados is available now in 300 ml bottles being sold in units of 3 ($6.50) and 24 ($52.00).

Niagara's Best Lager

While there has been no official announcement from the brewery, it appears that Niagara's Best Beer in St. Catherine's is now brewing a Lager to compliment their Blonde Ale. The Beer Store lists it as being available at 18 locations in the Niagara region, and provides the following commercial description:

Niagara's Best Lager is a Canadian style lager with a sweet malt character and a smooth clean finish. This product contains 5.5% alcohol by volume and is lightly hopped to appeal to the tastes of the mainstream beer drinker.

This beer seems to represent an attempt by Niagara's Best to grab a slice of the lucrative but increasingly crowded buck-a-beer market, as it's currently available only in cases of 24 bottles priced at $26.40 including deposit.
