Other than that, nothing.
Here's my favorite foofoo beer
Those froggy canucks sure can make good beer!
Dingus, your choice of beer is excellent (although I prefer "Upper Canada Rebellion") but your use of Canadianese sucks!
"Canuck" can be any Canadian but is usually French-speaking.
The "Voyageurs" were French or Indian fur-traders along the St. Lawrence River. Their use of canoes to carry fur and other cargo was made famous by the powerful artwork we see today.
But the "Coureurs des bois" were more on the line of inland pirates -- they were mean, illegal, and persecuted. Hence "Maudite" which really means "Dammed".
There's a write-up on Voyageur's World.
I don't know where you found that label but it's cool. So cool I would leave my loyalty to "Upper Canada Rebellion" and switch to that Lower-Canada, Quebecois beer.
I too liked that picture. I found out the legend behind it, thanks to the magic of the internet. I'd thought it was the canoe that hangs in the museum in Ottawa when I first saw it. I've had so much fun in Quebec, I'm actually starting to learn a little French.
