Bracebridge, Ontario – According to the Canadian Farmers’ Almanac, it’s going to be an icy cold and snowy winter. To help get us through the deep freeze, Muskoka Brewery is bringing back their Winter Survival Sampler that will feature their newest brew – Shinnicked Stout.
Shinnicked is that numbing, gasp-for-breath feeling you get when you plunge into a Muskoka lake for a chilly late-night dip in the fall or walk outside on a -20 winter day.
To warm you up afterward, Muskoka Brewery created Shinnicked Stout – a rich velvety beer brewed in collaboration with local coffee company Muskoka Roastery, using their signature Lumberjack coffee. Shinnicked is infused with flavours of dark chocolate and hints of coffee, toffee and dried fruit.
“Muskoka Roastery handcrafts coffee and we handcraft beer,” says Gary McMullen, founder and president of Muskoka Brewery. “Shinnicked was a natural collaboration of two Muskoka born brands that share the same values and commitment to the community. We worked closely with Muskoka Roastery from the brew stage to tasting to select the right roast to infuse Shinnicked with the perfect hint of coffee.”
This year, the Winter Survival Sampler is available in a six pack with 473ml tall cans (in addition to 341ml bottle twelve packs) and features Winterweiss, Cream Ale, Craft Lager, Detour and Mad Tom, along with the new Shinnicked Stout. Look for the Winter Survival Pack at The Beer Store, LCBO and grocery stores. Shinnicked Stout will be available as a stand-alone release in December.
