Dan notes (November 2017) that the Double Chocolate Cranberry Stout is now called Winter Beard and is made with Belgian milk chocolate.

Company email, November 2011:

"To answer your question all of our beers are 100% vegan. We only use 4 all natural ingredients in our beers: 95% Muskoka Water, Malts, Hops & Yeast. Our beer is first filtered with diatomaceous earth – which is a form of ancient algae. Our beer is manufactured here, and is all natural. All of our ingredients are sourced within North America.

The only beer that uses more than the 4 ingredients listed is the seasonal Double Chocolate Cranberry Stout. In this we use local cranberries, and cocoa-nibs.

We pride ourselves in using all natural local ingredients!"
