Did Someone Say Maple Beer?

We (obviously) can’t get enough maple syrup around this time of year — nor should we! We swear, once the thermometer starts to rise, we can just smell the sweet sap start to run. This time, we’re bragging a bit about Ontario’s infusion of the sweet stuff in our favourite brews – what better way to welcome Spring?


Maple Rush

Beau’s All Natural Brewing Co.

Vankleek Hill, ON

Maple Rush is a dark and robust porter made with certified organic Ontario maple syrup, and wood-aged on Canadian maple. From spring’s running sap to fall’s changing colours, the maple tree bookends our short summers and is the perfect addition to this autumn-suited beer.

Maple Bock

Railway City Brewing Co

London, ON

They’ve tapped into tradition with this classic Bock style, a malty dark lager that features nature’s tastiest treat. A maple swirl and dark fruit notes combine for a taste straight from the local sugar shack!

Maple Porter

Nickel Brook Brewing Company

Oakville, ON

A dark fragrant Porter, brewed with a blend of five malts, toasted barley and pure Ontario maple syrup. It’s naturally carbonated for a smooth creamy finish like any classic porter. They call it a uniquely Canadian twist of an ancient classic. We call it delicious.

O Canada Maple Ale

Perth Brewery

Lanark County, ON

This award-winning maple ale combines two of our favorites things in Lanark County: the splendid syrup harvested by Temple’s Sugar Bush and the malt forward red ale we love from Perth Brewery. 


Maple Butter Tart Ale

Sawdust City Brewing Co.

Gravenhurst, ON

Maple Butter Tart Ale has a deep amber colour with a creamy head. Vivid aromas of maple, butter rum pudding, vanilla, and caramel candy lead the way for notes of pie crust, toffee, molasses and chocolate. This ale boasts a dry, medium bodied, creamy, well-balanced crisp-hoppy bitterness. It then gives way to flavours of maple, toffee and malt, along with subtle notes of fruit, amber rum and butter on a long, enjoyable finish.
