Bracebridge, Ontario – There are some tell-tale signs of summer’s arrival in Ontario: sun-filled patios, loons on the lake, the smell of barbecue in the air and the return of Muskoka’s Summerweiss and Summer Survival Sampler pack.
Just in time for the Victoria Day long weekend, Summerweiss is back on shelves at the Beer Store, LCBO and grocery stores. Seasonally brewed and naturally hazy by design, the perfect balance of wheat, barley, and subtle hopping makes this an intriguingly aromatic, flavourful and sessionable summer wheat beer. With notes of banana and cloves, and a refreshing crispness from the elevated carbonation, the beer was made to be enjoyed on a hot summer’s day. Summerweiss pairs well with fresh guacamole and chips, preferably enjoyed dockside.
Summerweiss is available in 473 mL tall cans, in the returning Summer Survival Sampler, which includes six different unfiltered Muskoka brews.
This year, the Summer Survival Sampler is available in a six pack with 473 mL tall cans (in addition to 341 mL bottle twelve packs) and features Cream Ale, Craft Lager, Detour, Mad Tom, Summerweiss and for the first time – Kirby’s Kölsch, a thirst-quenching lagered ale. Look for the Summer Survival Sampler at the Beer Store, LCBO and grocery stores. Kirby’s Kölsch will be available as a stand-alone release in June.
To celebrate the return of Summerweiss and the Summer Survival Sampler, Muskoka Brewery is giving their social media fans the chance to win a Muskoka chair – another iconic sign of summer in Ontario. The contest launches today and will run until Monday, May 16 on Muskoka Brewery’s Instagram page.
Muskoka will also be sharing delicious summer food and beer pairing ideas on their social media accounts leading up to Victoria Day long weekend – the unofficial start of summer.
