So, went up to Victoria, Uculet, Tofino and Vancouver last week. Had a great time over all. Question about the beer though.
Why did a 15 pack of Labatt's and a 12 pack of Victoria Island Brewing cost $54.00??? It didn't hit me at first until I was loading it in the car,
then I was thought, "Wait, did I just drop $50.00 on a case of beer?!!" Went back in and sure enough, those were the prices.
I figured maybe we were in the pretty touristy town of Victoria, they can hit us with the tourist prices. But every liq that we checked was similarly
high priced. I realize some of that was the deposit, and a good chunk was the %13.00 or some ungodly amount of tax.
Does beer cost that much everywhere in Canada, Eh? I plan on going back to Vancouver on the Amtrak regularly. Maybe I'll just have to stick to
those other bars BC is (in)famous for. Although prices at the bars were not that different from US bars.
So, what's the deal, any tips on where to get a cheaper 12 pack?
