Did Someone Say Maple Beer?

We (obviously) can’t get enough maple syrup around this time of year — nor should we! We swear, once the thermometer starts to rise, we can just smell the sweet sap start to run. This time, we’re bragging a bit about Ontario’s infusion of the sweet stuff in our favourite brews – what better way to welcome Spring?

Vankleek Hill, ON Maple Rush is a dark and robust porter made with certified organic Ontario maple syrup, and wood-aged on Canadian maple. From spring’s running sap to fall’s changing colours, the maple tree bookends our short summers and is the perfect addition to this autumn-suited beer.

Maple Porter

Nickel Brook Brewing Company

Oakville, ON A dark fragrant Porter, brewed with a blend of five malts, toasted barley and pure Ontario maple syrup. It’s naturally carbonated for a smooth creamy finish like any classic porter. They call it a uniquely Canadian twist of an ancient classic. We call it delicious.

Maple Butter Tart Ale

Sawdust City Brewing Co.

Gravenhurst, ON Maple Butter Tart Ale has a deep amber colour with a creamy head. Vivid aromas of maple, butter rum pudding, vanilla, and caramel candy lead the way for notes of pie crust, toffee, molasses and chocolate. This ale boasts a dry, medium bodied, creamy, well-balanced crisp-hoppy bitterness. It then gives way to flavours of maple, toffee and malt, along with subtle notes of fruit, amber rum and butter on a long, enjoyable finish.
