Beers Available

Broken Axe American Pale Ale
Broken Axe American Pale Ale
Named for its bold clean-cut flavour, Broken Axe American Pale Ale is a crisp and juicy reward to a hard day's work. The welcoming aromas of peach and apricot develop into a tropical splash of lemon and grapefruit. Centennial, Wakatu and Idaho 7 hops are on double-duty, offering a balance of medium bitter flavour with a sharp citrus twist. Chalk it up as another cutting edge creation by our homegrown brewers: Mike Pawlick and Andrew Walsh. Malts: 2-Row Pale, Vienna, Carafoam, Wheat Malt Hops: Centennial, Idaho 7, Wakatu.
Oxtongue IPA
Oxtongue IPA
Take your tastebuds on a ride with the Oxtongue IPA for a journey that's hop-forward and dry with a refreshing citrus twist. You're greeted by a touch of boozy heat on the nose that envelops a hint of lemon, suggesting the grapefruit flavour swirling in the medium-bodied warm copper ale. Welcome a slight Vienna malt sweetness that trails off with a lingering pine bitterness. Hats off to the recipe leads, Andrew Walsh and Mike Pawlick. Malts: 2-Row Pale, Vienna, Carafoam, Wheat Malt Hops: Centennial, Idaho 7, Pekko
Spark House Red Ale
Spark House Red Ale
Like the fire towers that watch over Lake of Bays, our red has stood the test of time as our most popular brew. Ole Sparky, the Sparkle Horse, or Spark House as we lovingly call it, continues to trend high among old and new craft beer drinkers as an undeniably balanced yet robust beer for any occasion. Malts: 2-Row Pale, Flaked Wheat, Crystal, Chocolate Malt, and Roast Barley Hops: Magnum, Cascade, Saaz 5% alc./vol. | 29 IBUs
Switchback Pilsner
Switchback Pilsner
Switchback pours with a brilliant golden hue and dense white foam. Aromatics are of fresh-cut hay with slight floral notes and the unmistakable graininess that is the hallmark of a traditional German-style pilsner. The mouth feel is light-bodied with a subtle hint of citrus and the pleasant tanginess of Hallertau hops. Finishes clean and refreshing. Recipe by our resident Dane, Dan Unkerskov. Malts: 2-Row Pale, Pilsen, Flaked Wheat Hops: Magnum, Hallertau

Tour schedule changes with the season. Check our website -- or call ahead --705-767-2313-- to book.

Day Trip #1

We are located in the bustling rural metropolis of Baysville, ON (population 300) on the south shore of Lake of Bays. A short drive from Bracebridge or Huntsville, we are conspicuous with our large grain silo and Group of 7 mural outside, right on Highway 117 in the middle of town by the bridge. You can't miss us! Other attractions in the area include the Bigwin Island Golf Club, the Dorset Fire Tower, and a number of shops and businesses in the town of Baysville itself.

Day Trip #2

Visit us on your alternate route to Algonquin Park. Take exit 193 on Highway 11 N. Turn right on to Highway 117 and you'll come right past our door. From here continue east on Highway 117 to Highway 35 where you can make a pit stop in the village of Dorset before continuing north on Highway 35. Make a right hand turn at Highway 60 and BOOM! The only thing between you and the wilderness is a hefty park permit fee.

Day Trip #3

How about a brewery tour of the area? There are four breweries and a winery in the vicinity. In addition to Lake of Bays, there is Sawdust City in Gravenhurst, Muskoka Brewery in Bracebridge, Muskoka Lakes Winery in Bala, and Highlander Brew Co. in South River.

Day Trip #4

Arrive by boat! The brewery is located a five-minute walk from the Baysville public docks. You can also take in Centennial Park, Miss Nelle's, Humble Pie, Fork in the Road, and an assortment of other small-town shops and services. And if you care to stroll through town, look for five beautiful Group of Seven murals -- one of which is at the brewery.

Don't drink and drive. Whether you and your friends plan to stay overnight or not, decide on a designated driver before heading to the brewery. For help finding one of Ontario's beautiful inns and hotels, click here.
