Boy, Howdy! Get us guys a puppers.
Wayne, Katy Kat, Dary, and Squirrely Dan drink Puppers, and now you can too.
Made in Sudbury, Ontario by Stack Brewing, Puppers Beer is 4.0% abv (11 ibu) of premium light lager that is perfect for lawn mowing, hand sawing, trash-talking, glove-tossing, knuckle-dusting and rabble-rousing. You could buy it at the Stack Brewing taproom, as well as through the LCBO, the Liquor Control Board of Ontario (based out of Toronto).
Puppers should be the official beer of the Pond Hockey Classic.
About Puppers Beer
You don't need to be the toughest guy in Letterkenny to enjoy a few Puppers. To be fair, you don't even need to be a guy to enjoy this easy drinking golden lager. Hell, you could even by 10-ply. But have a few Puppers and you might find yourself in a donnybrook.
For all you Letterkenny Pheasants, the lager itself is good for all day drinking, whether that's after some early morning yardwork, or it's dowsing your liver during a NHL best of 7. Actually, better to toss a few Puppers down the gullet than to rip too many pulls off the ol' Gus N' Bru bottle. If not, you might miss Period 3 of Game 7. Speaking of tossing down a few Puppers, the hicks must really suffer from Cenosillicaphobia.
Word on the street is that Puppers has a satisfying taste, if a bit bready and grainy. All in all, it's a good beer, or so we're told. If Daryl can drink it, you can too. To be fair, it's better than drinking Donkey Juice.
As far as dog-related beer names go, Puppers Beer is nearing the top of the list.
About Letterkenny, the tv show
It seems like just about every other scene Wayne & crew are polishing off a few Puppers. K. Trevor Wilson, who plays Squirrely Dan, and Daryl are the ideal compliments to straight man Wayne. Letterkenny, the first original series by CraveTV, is loosely about Jared Keeso's (Wayne) small rural hometown in pastoral Ontario.
The big question we have is how many Puppers beers do you think the town consumes? Shoresy, Boomtown, and the rest of the adult hockey league probably crush a half dozen after every game. And if we count MoDean's II and III, that number might just scare off an ostrich.
Also, how many smokes does Wayne rip through? The answer is as many smokes as shots of Gus N' Bru whiskey, down the hatch!
About Stack Brewing
Stack Brewing is a craft beer brewery that is one of Sudbury's half dozen or so. Puppers was a limited release for the brewery. If it's ever available at the LCBO, you better get on it. You can probably buy Puppers Beer online from Stack Brewing. Too bad they don't sell kegs of Puppers. Then again, not sure customs would let us haul a half barrel across the border.
Is Puppers a real beer?
Yes, it is made by Stack Brewing in Sudbury, ON. It was a fictional beer from CraveTV's Letterkenny. Stack Brewing made it real. We are desperately waiting for them to make it real again so we can score a case of Puppers Beer. It is quite possibly the best beer for brats going.
What does it say on the back of the Puppers Beer can?
People, persons, peasants, pheasants. We proudly present a palate pleasing potion for pals parched proper. Pertnear the whole population'll be pilin'up to partake promptly... so pitter-patter, parnter. Puppers. Perfect.
Can you get Puppers Beer in the USA?
Google suggests that it's near impossible to acquire Puppers Beer in the USA without driving up to Stack Brewing in Sudbury and acquiring it yourself. Kind of tough in a pandemic, ya know?
The next best thing to a Puppers would be to seek out a few "How 'R Ya Now" from Night Shift Brewing, a New England IPA that is perfect for post (or pre) chorin' beverages. If you're really crafty, you can pair one with a "Good N' You?" from the Springdale Beer Company.
It's really too bad Tennessee bootleggers don't ride up North and return with it. We're also surprised that a state like Michigan can't its hands on a few cases of beer. And Niagara Falls, can't Canada just float some Puppers on down from their side?
What is Gus N' Bru whiskey?
For those wondering, Gus N' Bru is the official Letterkenny liquor. Hicks, Pheasants, and generally anyone looking to fight Wayne has took a swig of this Irish Whiskey. Gus N Bru whiskey is the perfect complement to Wayne's Favourite Beer, Puppers. It's ideal for drinking at the produce stand, before a fracas, or, when hosting a super soft birthday party for one's friend. You can't find it in the United States though, at least not yet. It's also because it's not real.
What is real, however, is that Banger Brewing out of Las Vegas brewed Gus N' Bru, a 10% abv Scotch Ale. Vegas is the last place anyone should be swilling imperial-class craft beers. You know how they say, "Ain't no laws when you're drinking White Claws" ... well that doesn't apply here.
If you get a Gus N' Bru from Banger Brewing, take it home and enjoy it safely. Also, no playing the Letterkenny Drinking game when hitting the imperial sauce.
Gus N' Bru label
The label on the bottle seems to claim that it's an old style whiskey - a traditional irish rye.
Letterkenny Merch (Shirts and Gifts)
Plenty of it to shop. Get yourself a Puppers Beer t-shirt on Amazon. Or, a "Who's a good boy?" pupper poster. Sure, Gus N' Bru tank tops, t-shirts, iPhone cases, wall art canvas prints, and other home decor is real. But sadly, the pre-beatdown bourbon is not. Pitter Patter.
New Hampshire Breweries providing the beer for these fine LK beer koozies, including Lone Wolfe in Wolfeboro. The Granite State shares a nice ol' border with our friends up North, so it was the least we could do.
