Muskoka Brewery is ready to celebrate Ontario Craft Beer Week
ONTARIO – Muskoka Brewery is gearing up for Ontario Craft Beer Week, June 12-21,
with tasting events throughout the province.
The weeklong celebration recognizes Ontario’s craft brewing scene while exposing
consumers to the premium quality and culture of craft beer in the province.
“Craft beer in Ontario has come along way. It’s exciting to see the number of
breweries that are in the market now and all of the new players,” said Muskoka
Brewery founder and president, Gary McMullen. “From the consumer perspective
there’s an excitement related to exploring new styles, tasting experiences and the
education journey – Ontario Craft Beer Week focuses all of those into one week. You
have a cornucopia of opportunities to try new things, to meet people that have
started breweries, to understand the industry a little better. It’s pretty exciting.”
