#81 Strange Drinks – Canadian soda

#81 Strange Drinks – Canadian soda

While at the 514 Poutine in Canmore, Alberta, Canada, they offered a soda I had never heard of before: Spruce Beer. Always willing to try something strange (almost always, that is. I have limits.), I had to order it. The cashier said I would either love it or hate it. Comforting. (This was a soda. I understand you can also get a Spruce Beer that is alcoholic)

I was surprised that it tasted good. It was the first time I have ever drank a pine tree! It tasted like pine-flavored ginger ale. It was kind of like taking a ginger ale and soaking a pine cone and pine needles in it. I would order it again, given the chance. (7/15/18)

Spruce beer is a beverage flavored with the buds, needles, or essence of spruce trees. For more info: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spruce_beer
