Bracebridge, Ontario, Canada
Bracebridge is a little town on the Muskoka River, about 2 hours north of Toronto. The people of Toronto would consider this “northern” Ontario, a concept that is easily questioned by those of us who own maps and possess the most basic visual/spatial thinking skills. Wikipedia calls it “central” Ontario…if this is central Ontario, then why is it 1800 km west to Manitoba but only 300 km east to Quebec? I shall ask the cartographers of the University of Western Ontario, found a leisurely 2000 km drive from Ontario’s western border. Anyways, Muskoka has a five beer taster’s pack available, complete with an imposed order from light to dark and tasting notes on the back. Today the lightest, a light Pilsner that is “brewed to original gravity”. This means that they don’t add any water to lighten up the beer as is a common practice. Is it crisp and clean? It’s certainly not rubbery and dirty. If you want to go light, it’s a good option.
