In celebration of the Muskoka Maple Trail & Festival, Clear Lake Brewing Co., Lake of Bays Brewing Company, Muskoka Brewery and Sawdust City Brewery have teamed up for a maple collaboration beer, and it is a 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 & 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 Muskoka maple sap collected from Maple Bluff Farm and Sweetwater Maple Syrup Supplies & Sugarbush, and pure Muskoka maple syrup from Sweetwater Maple Syrup Supplies & Sugarbush.
