Named after the soft sandy stretch on Lake Superior's eastern shore, Pancake Bay was awarded the second-best sweet stout on the planet at the World Beer Awards.
We combined five kinds of malts with flaked oats to create a full-bodied stout, then add milk sugar to sweeten it. As it cools we steep the beer in locally-roasted freshly ground coffee and finish it with Canadian maple syrup. Enjoy this beer for breakfast!
What You’ll Love About It
Oats, coffee, maple syrup and sugar – everything that makes up a great pancake breakfast. Now it’s OK to have beer for breakfast.
How It's Made
We combine five kinds of malts with flaked oats to create a full bodied stout, then add milk sugar to sweeten it. As it cools we steep this beer with locally-roasted freshly ground coffee. While the beer may be a classic English style of stout, we make it proudly Canadian by finishing the beer with a Canadian classic: maple syrup.
Why Is It Called Pancake Bay?
We named our Sweet Brunch Stout after Pancake Bay, a sandy stretch on Lake Superior’s eastern shore. It got its name from the Voyageurs, stout traders who appreciated sandy beaches – like the one at Pancake Bay – to protect their fragile birch bark canoes. Makes us thirsty and hungry thinking about all the paddling and portaging. Bet they could’ve used a proper pancake brunch once in a while.
How to Enjoy It
Well with a pancake breakfast of course. Instead of that Caesar at your Sunday brunch, grab a stout glass and enjoy bayside. Best served at 10° Celsius.
