4 Winter Warm Ups

Enjoy the season with great friends and great beer.

Sleds on snow

The best way to enjoy winter – bundle up and get out there! Invite the gang over for a fun afternoon of building snowmen or exploring the woods. When you’re ready to thaw your toes, bring everyone inside for a low-key gathering featuring our four favourite ways to serve beer.

Embrace the new Brews of the Season

Creemore Springs Traditional Urbock & Lake of Bays Old North Mocha Porter

Old North + Urbock

You know it’s Christmas when Ontario craft brewers release small batches of special winter beers. Set out special seasonal brews for guests. Add Creemore Springs Traditional Urbock to the holiday menu. It's an annual favourite from an iconic Ontario brewer: strong, dark and ribboned with mocha flavour. Crack open a large bottle of Lake of Bays Old North Mocha Porter too, so everyone can have a glass. Locally roasted coffee gives this porter its dark chocolate and creamy tiramisu flavours.

Pair Beer with Fondue

Coors Banquet

Coors and Fondue

Crisp beer and rich cheese: It doesn't get any better. It's so good that we melted them together. A favourite at holiday parties, Coors Banquet is a smooth, full flavoured lager that tastes great drizzled in our Beer and Mustard Fondue. Serve fondue with chunks of rustic bread, veggies and beer for an easy, crowd-pleasing snack.

Stella Artois

Serve a Beer Cocktail

Stella Artois

Stella Artois

A splash of blackcurrant cordial is a quick way to change up beer for the holidays. Or surprise your friends and whip up a Holiday Shandy cocktail. We used Stella Artois, a Belgian brew with a subtle bready flavour and a dab of citrus – it's great for sipping on its own or in a shandy.
