Lake Of The Woods Brewing Company

Lake Of The Woods Brewing Company

It all started back in 1898 when entrepreneur Abraham Kingdon opened the doors to the original Lake of the Woods Brewing Company in downtown Kenora. The brewery closed for a period during prohibition but was soon re-opened by Stanley Drewery in 1927. Unable to compete with the emergence of large national breweries, the brewery closed its doors in 1954... until now.

June 29th, 2013 marked the opening of Kenora's first brewery in 59 years. Local, fresh, handcrafted beer has returned. Proud of Kenora's brewing heritage, Lake of the Woods Brewing Company uses the same simple ingredients used by the brewers of the past... fresh, Canadian Shield water, malt, yeast and hops. That's it.

We encourage you to pay us a visit and experience craft beer at its finest. Located downtown in Kenora's Historic Firehall.

Beers Available

"Two Goats Walk Into a Bar" Doppelbock
"Two Goats Walk Into a Bar" Doppelbock
Very rich, malty lager. Light caramel and sweetness due to low hopping relative to high level of malt used. Very smooth finish with no harshness or astringency.
Bizzi-Bee Honey Brown Ale
Bizzi-Bee Honey Brown Ale
Bizzi-Bee Honey Brown Ale has a beautiful, golden dark hue that might have your mistake this brew for honey itself. Warm, inviting sweet floral nose. Honeyed first note intermingles with slightly bready malt and delicate Golding hop tones that fade into roasted caramel and betrays the balanced, earthy, slightly spicy Galena bittering for a rounded finish.
Bombed Blondeshell IPA
Bombed Blondeshell IPA
Full flavoured, brewed with Cascade Hops giving a pleasant, flowery/ spicy/ citrus like quality with a mild grapefruit characteristic. Bitter finish and reddish amber in color. Medium bodied with a balancing malt backbone.
Coney Island American Style Pale Ale
Coney Island American Style Pale Ale
An American Style pale ale that's clear, crisp and craft brewed. German Perle Aroma Hop blended with 100% Pale Malt denotes light hints of spice and mint balanced with floral and fruit aromas.
Firehouse Amber Ale
Firehouse Amber Ale
A small amount of chocolate malt provides the color and aroma of this amber colored ale while the aftertaste is of almond and the finish is dry. English hop varieties are used although the balance is towards the malt.
Hopwork Orange
Hopwork Orange
Gorgeousness and gorge-ous-ity made beer. A Pale Ale not overly orangey or hoppy - well balanced caracrystal wheat balances the Ale's citrus bitterness. Mild orange nose with a slight orange hue tinged color make this beer not at all disturbing and somewhat thought provoking. Complex blend of three aroma hops begs to ask the question 'What's it going to be, eh? Hopwork Orange Pale Ale.
Oktoberfest marzen lager
Oktoberfest marzen lager
