Bracebridge, Ontario – For the first time in its history, Muskoka Brewery is releasing a beer brewed exclusively with ingredients farmed in Ontario. The first seasonal beer brewed by the company, Harvest Ale, is returning with new, all-Ontario ingredients this September.
This year’s Harvest Ale is truly a local brew, reflecting Muskoka Brewery’s commitment to Ontario suppliers and great tasting beer.
“At Muskoka Brewery, we’re passionate about supporting our local communities wherever possible,” says Todd Lewin, president, Muskoka Brewery. “We’ve been excited to create a beer brewed 100% with ingredients from our home province for some time, and it makes sense that Harvest Ale, a beer with a big focus on the harvesting of quality ingredients, is our first release.
Harvest Ale features:
- Rye and Wheat Malt (sourced from Harvest Hop and Malt, Puslinch)
- AC Meltcalfe, Pale Ale and AC Newdale Pale Ale Malts (sourced from Barn Owl Malt, Belleville)
- Cascade, Rakau, Newport, Glacier and Centennial Hops (sourced from Tavistock Hop Company, Tavistock)
Harvest Ale will be among the beers featured at Evergreen’s Feast On BBQ – a celebration of Ontario local food and drinks at Evergreen Brickworks in Toronto on October 14. Ten Feast On certified chefs will serve up local and sustainable Ontario-inspired fare, perfectly paired with Muskoka beers.
Harvest Ale is available in 473mL tall cans at the LCBO, the Beer Store, select grocery stores and at the Brewery (located in Bracebridge). Harvest Ale will also be on draught at select bars and restaurants across the province.
In addition to the return of Harvest Ale, Muskoka Brewery is releasing a variety of new beers and packaging:
