Sawdust City Brewing Co. [Beer - Gravenhurst/Muskoka]

Recently the bf turned into a "beer guy" (pls follow him on Instagram @ahdoy2323 for mini beer reviews), so we decided to go on a mini beer trip few weeks ago since the weather had been so good. First brewery that came to mind was Sawdust City Brewing Co. (@sawdustcitybeer) after we fell in love with their Maple Butter Tart Beer recently, a dessert in a can (^_^).

Love the tasting room which they call "The Saloon" was surprisingly roomy with a long bar on one side and large windows looking into the brewing facility on the other.

There's 12 Draught Lines available daily at The Saloon including their 5 Core Brew plus seasonal and guest brews. We decided to share a flight of 5 tasters, we were given the tray to write the number we want from the blackboard.

#12 Vannessa 6%
~ guest tap by Nickle Brook / Saison
Hibiscus Beets Peach Belgian Ale! Sweet and a little sour & savory but we both wish it was more sour so the flavors can pop a bit more. It was a bit artificial tasting really!

#9 Winding Road 7%
~ Rye Saison
Very yummy with the right balance of malt and rye, we both agree that it was the best beer of the day. Easy drinking, smell of floral!

#11 Long Dark Voyage to Uranus 9%
~ Russian Imperial Stout
The roasted malt was way burnt as per Ben, it was a little harsh on the tastebuds and very high alcohol content of 9.5%. Smells chocolate and espresso! Thick, hoppy and dry!

#7 Twin Pines IIPA 8.8%
~ Double IPA
Their website describe it as a massively hopped double IPA and I definitely agree; it was green and harsh bitter that lingers in your mouth. According to Ben there's a lot of Magnum and Centennial Hops being use and method of dry hopping. 

#6 Marzen to the Beat Your own Drum 4.8%
~  Ale
Not very memorable, there wasn't much body to it with just some malt flavor here and there

And trust me, we definitely didn't left empty handed after the tasting (^_<)

Love the space, Love the beer
Favorite was the Winding Road and we def bought a few can home (^_<)
Wish it was closer to home but it made a great day trip
