The Beer Scene

Rocks, Trees, Lakes, Beer – Brewing North of Urban

What sets the Cottage Country Beer Trail apart from other ale trails in Ontario? It’s the fact that, in addition to featuring six amazing breweries and their fine products, our trail also showcases some of the most stunning landscape in all of Canada.

That’s no over-confident boasting, either. From Muskoka in the west to Haliburton in the east to the Almaguin Highlands in the north, visit any of the breweries on the trail and you’ll drive past gorgeous granite outcrops, lush green forests and – literally – thousands of sparkling blue lakes and rivers that will leave you gob-smacked. (There’s probably a dock or two waiting for you on your beer trail adventure as well.)

And it’s no coincidence that this (let’s just say it again) stunning landscape has seeped into the craft beer brewed here. How else do you get names like “Skinny Dipping Stout,” “Rock Cut Lager”?

So sure – you can take a tour on an urban trail that comes with fancy streetlights and annoying traffic. Here, however, Mother Nature’s your drinking partner and she brings fresh air, woodlands and water, and stars overhead to the party.

Hope to see you by the bonfire on the Cottage Country Beer Trail in the wilderness north of urban.
