KENORA, ON – Lake of the Woods Brewing has announced the release of a beer that pays tribute to a highlight in Kenora’s local sports history.
1907 Scottish Cream Ale (5.65% abv) is named in honour of the year that the Kenora Thistles hockey club won the Stanley Cup in a challenge series in January, and lost it in another just two months later.
The beer is described as follows:
Our 1907 Scottish Cream Ale is a mild beer made using traditional ingredients. Hops are minimal and Heather flowers have been used instead for bittering and aroma along with honey for a delicate sweetness. Pale Ale malt is used as a base in addition to wheat, rye, oats and caramel malt. The caramel malt contributes colour and toffee flavours, the rye adds a distinct spice and the oats are used for body and head retention.
1907 is available now at the Lake of the Woods taproom and retail store in Kenora, where they’re also selling copies of “Engraved in History: The Story of the Stanley Cup champion Kenora Thistles” by author and hockey historian Eric Zweig.
