Beers Across Canada Day 4


Fourth day on the road and nothing too exciting to report other than for the first time I saw the beautiful northern lights that decorate the Manitoba sky at night.

We made it to northern Ontario so it feels like we have progressed until you look closer at the map and realize just how big Ontario actually is!

Luckily today I saw something that cheered me up immensely, Kenora Ontario, or to beer geeks, home of the Lake of the Woods Brewery and tap room so we pulled in for lunch and a beer.

My Ontario beer of the day was Last Call a rye and ginger brew. This beer poured a nice clear copper colour with lots of white head and decent carbonation. A slightly sweet malt forward nose with a bit of spice as well. First few sips were light-bodied, sweet and with a bit of a warming quality from the ginger not the alcohol content, which seemed pretty sessional. As you continue to drink the heat of the ginger and the tang of the rye really become more pronounced. This beer is a pretty tricky one to pair with foods as the flavours in beer change with the dinner you are having.

Overall a really nice beer, one probably best consumed before or after a meal. Looking forward to trying more from this brewery.
