#WetYourWhistleAtWorlds with Steam Whistle Pilsner

Can’t get any more Canadian for Canada150 than Steam Whistle Pilsner. Brewed right in Toronto at the original CN Roundhouse beside the CN Tower, “three fired guys” formed this popular Canadian brewery in 1998 (see if you can find 3FG on your bottle). Thanks to Steam Whistle Brewery for coming on board to support J/24 sailing at PCYC 2017 Worlds!
