HUNTSVILLE, Ontario --In celebration of the Muskoka Maple Trail & Festival, Lake of Bays Brewing Company, Muskoka Brewery and Sawdust City Brewing Company have teamed up to create their first collaboration beer, and it has been an instant hit.
The collaboration brew – Pancake Breakfast Specialty Maple Ale – is a toasted golden brown ale that is inspired by a perfectly flipped pancake.
With a doughy malt centre, aromas of cinnamon and vanilla lead the way while the maple syrup provides a rich body and lingering sweet finish.
The maple ale will remind you of sitting around the table enjoying a warm plate of pancakes drizzled with Canada’s favourite syrup.Pancake Breakfast was brewed with maple sap being incorporated into the base water, pure maple syrup being added to the boiling process and a third dose of syrup being added during the secondary fermentation process.
The sap and syrup were provided by two local sugar bushes, Sweetwater Maple Syrup in Bracebridge and Maple Bluff Farm in Huntsville.
