Muskoka has a hip and trendy craft beer scene, with a number of local breweries crafting up award-winning local brews. The brewmasters at our local breweries are super talented, and love to get creative with their ingredients, and the cranberry harvest is no exception!

Crack a pint (or stop in for a sample) and enjoy the good life at these great local craft breweries. Be sure to take some of their cranberry-inspired craft pints home to enjoy throughout the harvest!

Try these delicious cranberry inspired craft brews:

Clear Lake Brewing Co.: Cran Radler is an extra light and ultra refreshing must-try beer at the quaint craft brewery in Torrance ON. The bursts of cranberry will delight your taste buds, leaving you wanting more and you’re in luck because you can take home a Growler full!

Muskoka Brewery: Double Chocolate Cranberry Stout name Winter Beard is a rich and full-bodied dark beer with dominant flavours of chocolate, cranberry, and subtle coffee notes. The beer will keep you warm with every sip all winter long. It pairs wonderfully with cheesecake, berries and of course, chocolate. Stop by the brewery in Bracebridge to pick up the beverage, or stay a while to check out the grounds, and maybe even tour the brewery.

Sawdust City Brewing Co.: The Blood of Cthulhu Imperial Stout is a flavoured imperial stout with a ridiculous amount of malt, rich chocolate, and a mixture of tart cranberries and raspberries. The stout pairs well with dark beefy venison stews, dark chocolate cakes, and vanilla ice cream. The seasonal beer is available at the Sawdust City Brewing retail store located on the north end of Gravenhurst’s main street.

Huntsville Brewhouse: Lake of Bays Brewery Peach IPA blended with Cranberry Apple Cider is a medium body IPA with a lingering bitterness balanced by the natural sweet and tart taste of the beloved cranberry. The Peachy Keen Milkshake IPA by Lake of Bays mixed with Thornbury’s Cranberry Apple Cider is the perfect combination to invigorate your taste buds. The brewhouse features all the Lake of Bays brews and is conveniently located right downtown Huntsville.
