BEER LAUNCH: Muskoka Releases Winter Seasonals

Winter is coming and with that Muskoka Brewery releases their winter brews, Winterweiss and Winter Beard (Double Chocolate Cranberry Stout)

WinterweissFor the first time Winterweiss will be available in a 473ml can format, generally being a draught only option at local establishments. This 5% abv Dunkelweizen is the perfect pairing for any winter meal or stands alone after a long day of outdoor winter fun!

When it comes to food pairings I like to play with all the flavours going on. With the yeast and wheat characteristics of a Hefeweizen and the malty richness of a Munich Dunkel, Winterweiss makes a lovely beer to pair with rich meats & cheeses. I took the opportunity to break out the fondue pot! Stay tuned for a later post of what I came up with.

Winterweiss is currently available at the LCBO & The Beer Store in Ontario from November 1st until February 28th.

With all the excitement of the Winterweiss release we cannot forget the return of Winter Beard!Winter Beard With previous years being vintage – Muskoka Brewery came back this year with a fresh batch of their Double Chocolate Cranberry Stout. Once again it has been released in the 750ml format, caged and corked.

Over the years I’ve done a lot of fun recipes with Winter Beard – this year I came up with something totally different which I can’t wait to post about. Until then take a look at my previous posts of some ideas.

Winter Beard is available for purchase at the LCBO.
