Great Outdoor Essentials: A Broken Axe

Wednesday August 20th, 2017 (Baysville, ON): Everything tastes better by the campfire, especially after a day spent working hard in the great outdoors. A broken axe will end your day of work pretty quickly and that image was the inspiration for Lake of Bays Brewery’s Broken Axe APA. Its crisp, bold flavour is the perfect quencher for a hard day’s work, no matter how that work ends, and its golden colour echoes the sunset at the end of the day.

Whether you’ve spent hours working on projects at the cottage, chopping wood, or setting up your campsite just the way you like it, there’s no greater reward than a crackling fire, a refreshing brew and a hearty meal cooked over the flames. But think beyond the hot dog and haul out your cast iron pots and pans – you can cook just about anything in the great outdoors. Chili? Yep. Pizza? Of course. Bacon? That, too!

And don’t forget about dessert! Sure, you can roast marshmallows and ‘smores are a classic campfire treat, but with a simple camp oven – just a small, folding metal box – you can up your dessert game and bake almost anything you can make in your kitchen.

Don’t have cast iron or a camp oven? You’ll find it at Algonquin Outfitters, too, where you’ll find just about everything you need to enjoy the great outdoors. They’ve been outfitting outdoor adventurers for more than 50 years. You can even replace that broken axe there, too.

Broken Axe APA is part of the Great Outdoors collection from Lake of Bays Brewery, all of which are made from the fresh, clear water of Lake of Bays. You’ll find it all season long – and the rest of the year, too – at the LCBO.

While you’re enjoying the great outdoors this summer, snap a few photos of your favourite landscapes for The Great Outdoors photo contest, inspired by Tom Thomson and the Group of Seven. It’s sponsored by Lake of Bays Brewery, Algonquin Outfitters and Cavalcade Color Lab and features fabulous prizes.

Limited Time Offer! Broken Axe is on sale at the LCBO, Beer Store and grocery from Sept 10 – Oct 7!
