Handcrafted, Small Batch Brewed

About The Brewery

Nestled in the heart of Muskoka, Muskoka Brewery handcrafts premium beers as unique and refreshing as the region they're from.

Founders Gary McMullen and Kirk Evans kicked the doors of Muskoka Brewery open in June of 1996. What started as a very small and dedicated team has quickly grown to a passionate band of craft beer lovers over 100 strong.

In short, we have a passion for great craft beer and we hope you get a chance to try it. Join us as we celebrate our 20th anniversary this year.

Our Beliefs:


We are committed to being a freshness leader in Ontario. Contrary to popular belief, beer is a fragile product, like any perishable food. At Muskoka Brewery, we label each can with "Enjoy Before" dates. No codes, no mysteries - we want you to taste fresh beer every time.


We believe you should know exactly what your beer is made of. Alcohol is the only consumable product that doesn't legally require a full list of ingredients. What makes Muskoka Brewery different? The ingredients on our labels are what we actually use to make our beer!

Here's what you won't find in our beer. There are no additives, no preservatives and no adjuncts (cheaper ingredients or those that shortcut the brewing process). And we never pasteurize. We brew beer the way it's supposed to be made. This is our passion and our promise.


We value our independence; it's what makes us unique. Muskoka Brewery is a Canadian-owned company. Our brewery and offices are in Bracebridge, Ontario. If you share our passion for keeping jobs in Ontario, do pick up a case or two. We know you'll enjoy it. You can find us at most Beer Store and LCBO locations.

creative change

At the beginning of 2012, we began construction on a new facility. Located a mere 6km from our original brewery, the new home of Muskoka Brewery is a huge expansion, housing a new 70hl brew house, 10 new 155hl fermentation tanks, an expanded packaging line, and a lot more space!

Below is video that captures the inner workings of this amazing construction.

This year we're celebrating our 20th anniversary; below is a video that captures the essence of who we are and where we come from. Enjoy!
