Molson Stock Ale – Don’t Call It A Comeback!

Don’t call it a comeback,

It’s been here for years,

Rockin its peers and puttin’ suckas in fear!

I know I changed it a little but thank you to LL Cool J for the greatness that is Mama Said Knock You Out.

For generations Molson Stock Ale has been enjoyed by beer drinkers all over this great land. Even though it may not have ever been the most popular, it sat there (cold and refreshing) in the background. When I was younger my friends and I started drinking Molson Stock Ale at parties. We loved that label and grew to love the taste. There was no irony. There was no cool factor. There was just beer.

Fast forward approximately 10 years and Molson Stock Ale is seemingly making an entrance into the hipster world of “not cool so it’s cool” beers. PBR and Labatt 50 are already selling a ton of bottles, cans and pints in bars and beer stores and you know what… I’m not mad.

I’m happy!

I love that Molson wants to cash in because I want to be able to drink Stock Ale, that isn’t from Mill Street, when I go to the bar. I want to be proud of the anchor and rope on the label. I want my beer.

I think that it will soon be time to find my Team Stock Ale t-shirt and go sit on the patio with a cheap pitcher.

If you want to join me, let’s make a plan.

If you know somewhere that’s serving Stock Ale, let me know.

If you aren’t familiar with this beauty, give it a try.

You won’t be sorry you did (especially not at $12 a pitcher!)

Enjoy!

    Molson Stock on tap at Local Heroes in Ottawa. It’s been over 25 years since I last had one. Good beer.

    I started drinking Stock in the ’70s because we could go for lunch at High School and get a 6pk that was colder than Ex. Fast forward to July 2013 and I am one of 2 people that buy a brick every week. My only worry is that it gets dropped due to poor sales.
    T-shirts sound great! Draft would be even better!

    They’re serving it up at The Dakota in Toronto (Dundas and Ossington). It’s a Top-Shelf beer in that place!! Bluegrass Brunch every sunday. Love it! Cheers!

    They sell Stock Ale nice and cold on draft at Ethels in Waterloo, Ontario — They sell a lot of it

    Stock ale is good but the best beer Molson ever made (still have it in some places) is definitely Golden. I actually sent Molson an angry email complaining when Golden was cancelled here in Ontario. They said it didnt sell well. I said: “YOU DIDNT ADVERTISE IT MORONS!!!”. Seriously, Canadian is the worst garbage ever. It sells for two reasons: it’s called “Canadian” and they advertise the hell out of it. But it’s bland, tasteless swill. What killed Golden was putting it in green bottles way back in the eighties. Beer goes skunky faster in green bottles (fastest in clear bottles), so when they changed it, the sales dropped off. They tried going back to brown bottles, but with little advertising, it was too little too late. But take my word for it. If you want Molson’s best beer ever, get some Golden. Hipsters, trust me, your grandads drank this beer for a reason. It’s amazing. Golden and 50 rule.

      Just got back from a trip to Michigan and “premium beer from Canada” was available at the grocery store. It was Molson Golden in the green bottles and it was fine. It is actually brewed by Molson Coors in Golden Colorado

    Molson Stock has been my personal choice since the early 70’s. I still remember the TV ad showing a man taking a fresh baked loaf of bread out of the oven and testing it with his hand. The tag line was Molson Stock, it’s not for everyone.
    Last weekend a bunch of us went to the Clarkson Pump and there it was, Molson Stock on tap. I am very happy.

  7. James says:

    Molson Stock, 50, Canadian, Blue, Black Label, all of it is on par with film processing fluid. It shouldn’t be consumed unless you plan on developing film in your stomach.

    1. Joshua says:

      While I appreciate your personal taste and opinion, I’ve gotta disagree about the Molson Stock Ale, 50… and kinda the Canadian. However, I will agree that Blue (and Blue Light) and Black Label are “no thank yous”.
