Maple Flavoured Beers for Sugaring Season!

Updated on Feb 21, 2024

Whether you’re a beer amateur or simply curious, here you’ll discover several maple flavoured beers we suggest pairing with your sugar shack meals or to celebrate the arrival of the first spring days.


Desérables – Microbrasserie Le Grimoire

Here’s a maple flavoured red ale with comforting subtle hints of bitterness bringing to mind the delicious taste of maple taffy. Desérables pairs well with pork, chicken, sausage dishes and ... ice cream!

Available at all times at the microbrewery and several points sale such as Métro and IGA grocery stores.

La Cabane – Refuge des Brasseurs

The Refuge des Brasseurs suggest trying La Cabane. This Scotch Ale is made with maple syrup, and letting part of its must caramelize to develop more intense malt flavours and a sweet caramel finish in the mouth. This beer pairs well with their burgers or their smoked meat, bacon and maple syrup poutine. Not-to-be-missed!

Available at the microbrewery or at several points sale in the Sherbrooke area.

Maplehurst – Microbrasserie de Coaticook

Maplehurst is a red beer. The added maple syrup reveals itself on the finish in the mouth through its sharp, surprising taste. Follows a true bitterness that balances out the sugary residual, leaving you with a sensation of freshness. This beer pairs well with a sugar shack meal, and especially with pork rinds and baked beans.

Available for a limited time at the microbrewery and at several points of sale.
