(Seasonal Release) Muskoka Cottage Brewery | Harvest Ale 1 Comment »


Muskoka Harvest Ale is an American Pale Ale. For it’s inaugural year, our Harvest Ale has been hopped with Ontario grown cascade hop leaves.

This ale is also dry hopped which contributes to a subtle grassy character reminiscent of the harvest.

It is refreshing and crisp and has a nice malt base.

Close your eyes, savour the nose, taste the ale and celebrate the harvest.

This ale pairs well with bold, spicy, hearty foods such as spicy chili, curried chicken meals or hearty meatloaf.

Here are some pictures of James and Mark working with the locally grown hops and adding them to the brew.



We are proud to offer this special Harvest Ale in draught only to an exclusive list of licensed establishments for a limited time only.

Muskoka Cottage Brewery will be officially launching the Harvest Ale on October 22nd at the Berkeley Church as part of the Toronto Wine & Spirit Experience. The event will feature unique local wines, an extensive local menu and Muskoka Cottage Brewery.

Just got back from the Canadian Brewing awards. Even though it was held last Thursday night Jason and Jason decided to celebrate for a while.

Why were we celebrating you ask…We took home a Gold, Silver and Bronze this year and when 75% of your beer takes home a medal it’s a good reason to have a beer or two. We would like to thank Taps Magazine for producing this fantastic awards program and all of the other Canadian brewers for participating and making it the challenge it is. Of course we need to give credit to the Folks at the Griffin Gastro Pub who did a fine job of pouring at the ceremony, not to mention letting us steal pictures from Caroline, (see below).

Congratulations to our brewers for their hard work that went into making great beer.
