Ontario's first craft brewery introduces most Canadian beer ever?

KITCHENER, ON, Nov. 18, 2020 /CNW/ - While Canadian content may be easier to measure in radio and television than in craft beer, Waterloo Brewing's Maple Spiced Pecan Old Ale has to be a frontrunner for the Most Canadian Beer Ever.

  • Waterloo Maple Spiced Pecan Old Ale joins the brewery's long-running series of seasonal small-batch beers.

  • At 5.5% alc./vol., the maple-flavoured brew is characterized by an aroma of pumpkin and flavour notes of classic Canadian butter tart.  

  • Available beginning this December in 473mL cans for $2.95 at The Beer Store, the LCBO, select grocery stores and the Waterloo Brewing Beer Store. 

This maple-flavoured brew with an aroma of pumpkin and flavour notes of classic Canadian butter tart is the latest seasonal small-batch offering from Ontario's first craft brewer. With the crisp weather rolling in, the beermaker is betting craft beer drinkers will be on the lookout for something more daring this winter. 

"As temperatures edge toward the cooler side, there's this tendency for all of us to indulge in food and drink that just plain makes us happy," notes Kim Mannerow, Director of Marketing at Waterloo Brewing. "We saw this unique time of year as a perfect opportunity to come up with a new recipe that gave a shout-out to our Canadian heritage in a way no one had really done before."     

"We're a proud, homegrown Canadian success story, so it only makes sense that we take a crack at the quintessential Canadian craft beer," says Mannerow. "This is our way of calling attention to the tastes and flavours that make this country such a special place." 

Waterloo Maple Spiced Pecan Old Ale is 5.5% alc./vol. and available for a limited time in 473mL cans for $2.95 at The Beer Store, the LCBO, select grocery stores and the Waterloo Brewing Beer Store (400 Bingemans Centre Drive in Kitchener).
