Today, Muskoka Brewery and Swim Drink Fish are partnering to bring swimmable, drinkable, fishable waterways to more Great Lakes communities. In spring 2020, Muskoka Brewery released its Muskoka Survival Pack. Every pack sold helps restore 1m2 of Canadian water. The Survival Pack includes 3 different easy-drinking Muskoka Brewery beers including all-malt Craft Lager, refreshing Detour and something new, this year. Discover its latest release Tread Lightly, a light lager that leaves an impression. Proceeds from every pack sold will fund shoreline restoration work, restoring habitat, and water quality.
Proceeds from every Born This Way can will go towards the GetREAL Movement to help ensure the path forward is better than the one behind us. Not only does this organization foster equality for the LGBTQ2S+ community, but also does important work to combat discrimination and promote acceptance for all. We are glad to have the GetREAL movement into our Muskoka family. We can do better and we will do better.
The Ontario Craft Brewers Association consists of 60+ brewers dedicated to making great tasting beer, right here in Ontario. The reason we got together is to promote our fresh, natural, quality beer and agree on a commitment to excellence that everyone has to live up to. The strength of Ontario Craft Brewers is based on a passion to rekindle and keep alive the spirit of traditional brewing. Throughout history, breweries have been an integral part of their local communities and the beer produced has reflected the pride, passion and personality of the brewer and the community.
Almost one eight of Muskoka is covered in precious wetlands. Throughout our longstanding relationship with Muskoka Conservancy, we’ve cleaned up waterways and helped clear out invasive plant species to allow this essential ecosystem to breathe and grow. In 2017, we began raising money and supporting brewery volunteers in the installation of a natural trail at UpJohn Nature Reserve. Not just for site-seeing, this trail hosts facilities to educate visitors on the vital role of wetlands as natural water filters, flood preventers, and a habitat to an incredibly diverse ecosystem.
Muskoka Brewery and The Poverty Reduction of Muskoka Planning Team (PROMPT), are pleased to announce that Muskoka Brewery has become the first Ontario certified Living Wage employer and the first Canadian brewery to adopt a living wage for its employees. Different from the minimum wage, a living wage is based on the principle that full time work should provide families a basic level of economic security above the poverty line. The living wage calculation includes the cost of living in the local community and social inclusion. The result is a decent quality of life and the ability to live healthier lives.
As Muskoka Brewery has continued to grow and thrive across Canada, its roots have stayed firmly planted in Ontario. All of our products are created at the brewery in Bracebridge, Ontario by a truly dedicated team of 110+ that’s paid the Ontario Certified Living wage. We strive to support local partners wherever we can and many of our beers include ingredients produced in Ontario.
“Ontario Made is a celebration of Ontario Manufacturing led by Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters.”
We’re proud to support these worthy non-profit causes that remain close to our hearts: projects to clean our lakes and rivers, create trails to share the natural beauty of Muskoka, increase sustainability and improve lives for those in our communities.
