Drewrys was originally a brand of Canadian beer that originated in 1877. The main Drewrys claims to fame were that the beer was "more flavor; less filling; more fun!", years before the popularity of light beers, and also that a can of Drewrys would float in water, rather than sinking to the bottom of a bucket or tub. The Drewrys Mountie, and his faithful horse, were front and center on the earliest Drewrys cans. However, on the 1950s series cans he began to fade into the background. By the time the last series came out, the Mountie was tiny, and his horse was gone.
