More on visit to Muskoka Brewery. Venture off the beaten path with me as I talk to the brewers & taste the beers of this exciting company.
I drove up to Bracebridge a couple of days ago to visit Muskoka Brewery. One thing that's immediately evident is the laid-back style of the people. Founder Gary McMullen and his team were sitting at a big oak table walking through their business plan. They immediately jumped up and greeted me warmly and offered to taste beer. It was quickly evident that these fine folks are focused, business savvy, fun-loving, and passionate about their products...
Muskoka Craft Lager
A clean and crisp lager. Gold medal winner. Approachable and drinkable.
750 ml. A British style pale ale, 6.4%, dry hopped to allow aromas to come out. Seasonal, so get it now, or wait til next harvest.Double Chocolate Cranberry Stout
This 8% beauty is also in a 750 ml bottle. Featuring ingredients from the cranberry marsh nearby and cocoa nibs. It's a very nice dessert beer.About 1/3 of their beer is sold to restaurants in kegs, 2/3 in bottles and cans to the public.James Brewer

It was a great weekend. Not only the birthday party of my dearest, but also a chance to visit the Art Exhibition of Dora Keogh.
When I first saw Dora's paintings about a year ago, I admired the lively colour and vitality. Now, a year later, I'm enjoying how much she's grown as an artist. The new works exude a view of her environment with even more aplomb.
She's got an additional technique happening too: ink and watercolour wash. These smaller works have a picasso-esque style that is quite endearing. They possess life. They're joyous.
Thanks to Dora and John for a lovely afternoon! Keep on creating!

Tenuta Moraia IL Pacchia Maremma Toscana 2009
A blend of Sangiovese and Merlot, the wine is an enticingly dark beauty in a premium bottle and sporting an attractive label. Her sensuality exudes aromas and flavours of currants, berries, dark chocolate, coffee and spice, enveloped in a silky smooth body. The firm tannins proclaim this is a serious wine, and that certainly bears out in the big and lingering finish.
This wine will be available from Wine Lovers agency.
