CBC remembers the brewery strike of 1985, where Canadians had to survive 7 miserable months without Carling-O'Keefe, Labatt and Molson beers. Let's hope a rise in imported and craft beer will ensure we never have to endure this tragedy again.

[*] You can change the this context through .call(), .apply() and .bind()
