Finished Tapping

Well, we did indeed work hard on Thursday and finished tapping all of our trees! Now, we just have to wait for this winter storm to clear out and hope for some warmer weather!

At this time of year, Canadians everywhere are beginning to think maple. I noticed an article today about a brewery in the Ottawa area that welcomes spring with a special seasonal beer. Heritage Brewing uses maple sap instead of water to brew its Maple Bush Lager.

"The beer varies in dryness from year to year depending on the sugar content of the sap," the company says. "This beer has the aroma of maple, the smokiness of a sugar camp and the rich colour of amber maple syrup."

Sounds great! You can check it out on their website:
