his buddy Moose. It includes such Canadian icons as the Maple Leaf on the

Nuts prototype interior
The Beer Nuts prototype has two main differences from the
version that was issued:
- Inside the box the
prototype is inscribed Doug + Bob McKenzie - the version that
was issued is inscribed DB McKenzie;
- The prototype does
not have the reference to Sir John EH that appears on the
base of the version that was issued.
The base is marked CANADIAN EXCLUSIVE #002.
NAMI is the nation's leading grassroots organization solely dedicated
to improving the lives of persons with severe mental illnesses
(major depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia,
obsessive-compulsive disorder, and anxiety disorders). Their
efforts focus on support to persons with serious mental illnesses
and to their families. They advocate non-discriminatory and
equitable federal and state policies; increased research funding
into the causes, symptoms, and treatments for mental illness; and
education to eliminate the pervasive stigma toward severe mental
illness. Through advocacy and education, NAMI translates
biomedical research advances into effective treatment and services
for individuals with serious mental illness.
