Introducing Lake Mindemoya Mango Witbier, a beer brewed entirely by the talented woman-identifying staff of Kingston's Something in the Water brewery for International Women's Day. It's named after Autumn Peltier, an outspoken clean water advocate named Chief Water Commissioner for the Anishinabek Nation in 2019. She brings global attention to the water issues in our country.
What You'll Love About It
This Belgian Style Wit uses Pink Boots Blend hops and real mango for a bold, full-toned mango flavour from start to finish as well as to bring further support to women in our industry.
How It's Made
We start with a base of malted barley, wheat, and oats before the magic happens: Alongside a traditional Belgian yeast we add coriander and sweet orange peel for that traditional Wit flavour and aroma. We then hit it with the pails on pails of real mango for an unexpected and delicious take on the classic style.
Why Is It Called Lake Mindemoya?
In their own words: "The modern Odawa name for Manitoulin Island is Mnidoo Mnis, meaning "Spirit Island" with three smaller lakes situated inside: Lake Manitou, Lake Kagawong and Lake Mindemoya. Lake Mindemoya is the smallest of the three with an island also known as “Treasure Island” and is the world’s largest natural island in a lake on an island in a lake. The name Lake Mindemoya honours Autumn Peltier as, like Treasure Island, she has been a treasure for Canada and water advocacy."
