Named after the legendary Sultana Gold Mine on Lake of the Woods. The mine, located on Sultana Island, prospered for over a decade and eventually flooded in 1902. The gold may not have panned out, but this clean, crisp, sessionable ale certainly did. Stake your claim to a true northern beer and bring home the gold.
It would only make sense for us to dedicate the name of this beer to our brewery and tap room location, a 104-year old firehall in downtown Kenora. A small amount of chocolate malt provides the colour and aroma of this amber coloured ale while the aftertaste is of almond and the finish is dry. English hop varieties are used although the balance is malt forward.
Hidden in the Lake of the Woods region on a small back lake there exists patches of berries usually reserved for the discerning palates of black bears. This beer is subtle with a clear fruity nose. Muted blueberry, low bitterness and medium body. Although high in ABV, its finish is smooth and well-balanced.
Dedicated to the larger than life men and women that helped forge the North American landscape. For all the lumberjacks, loggers, fellers and buckers… this beer’s for you. An unexpected bend to an American India Pale Ale, this non-traditional IPA has a depth of body and colour with an enormous floral/citrus hop aroma and a supporting malt profile. Keep on loggin’ on.
This uniquely northern beer is brewed with malted barley & wild rice. Wild rice (harvested in our area) is added to the boil, giving this beer a distinctive nutty finish. Wild rice, also known as Manoomin, which translates into ‘the good berry’ in Ojibwe, has played a major role in the lives of Ojibwe people in our region for centuries.
There’s nothing quite like pitching a tent by the lake and gathering a few logs to burn in the fire. We find this activity always goes best with a few beers and a few good friends. Happy Camper is brewed with Manitoba honey and finishes with sweet clove and a hint of chocolate. Best enjoyed in the great outdoors. Pairs well with S’mores.
