If I had a pub.. beer menu

The other day I was browsing /r/beer on Reddit and came across a beer menu of a pub in the States, it made me think - "hey, if I had my own pub, that would be a great idea for a pub menu!"

As you know, I find most pubs in Manitoba lacking in the beer market, especially at a time when beer tastes are changing at a rapid rate (in possibly the blandest province when it comes to beer drinkers).

Here's a beer menu I'd make up:

Tap (12, 16 and 20 oz options)

Fort Garry Pale Ale (Manitoba)
Granville Island Maple Cream Ale (British Columbia)
Guinness Stout (Ireland)

Half Pints' Little Scrapper India Pale Ale (Manitoba)
Half Pints' St James Pale Ale (Manitoba)
Half Pints' Stir Stick Stout (Manitoba)
Unibroue Blanche de Chambly (Qu├ębec)
Unibroue Trois Pistoles (Qu├ębec)

Anchor Steam (California)
Brooklyn Pale Ale (New York)
Innis & Gunn Highland Cask (Scotland)
Rogue Chipotle Ale (USA)
Lava Stout (Iceland)
Bud Light/Kokanee (but charge a premium for this, because some people REFUSE to try new beer)
Sam Adams (this one would be whatever seasonal)
New Grist (I believe people who face celiac disease should be able to enjoy as well)
Okanagan Hopped Lager (British Columbia)
Okanagan Brewmasters Black Lager (British Columbia)
Steinlager (New Zealand)
Tree Pumpkin Ale (British Columbia)
Tree Thirsty Beaver (British Columbia)
Tree Captivator Doppelbock (British Columbia)
Garrison Imperial India Pale Ale (Nova Scotia)
Mill Street Tankhouse Ale (Ontario)

For the most part, I stayed away from beers not available in Manitoba, although I'd love to have a billion beers in selection if possible! I couldn't think of many more but seeing as it would likely be a poutine & burger pub, I shouldn't have too many beers. I'd separate the beers into sections such as Sweet or Spicy, Blonde, Brune & Rouge, etc.
