Brewery Angling for Trail Development
It shouldn’t be much of a surprise that a brewery that names most of their beers after fish has a strong connection to the outdoors. Muskellunge Brewing Company, located in downtown Canton, Ohio, announced this week that they’ll be helping to raise money for the Stark County Park District, commonly known as Stark Parks.
A portion of the sales of Tam O’ Shanter Dortmunder lager will be donated to a Stark Parks fund to help develop and maintain sustainable trails throughout the park system. Stark Parks currently boasts more than two dozen hiking, biking and equestrian trails, including a 25 mile section of the Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail that stretches from Cleveland to New Philadelphia.
One of the few Muskellunge beers *not* named for a fish, Tam O’ Shanter takes its title from the famous Robert Burns poem, which also inspired the naming of one of the newest parks in the Canton area. Built on a former golf course, Tam O’ Shanter Park features four miles of hiking trails incorporating the old cart path, as well as a stocked pond for fishing. Tam O’ Shanter the beer is a refreshing, pale, soft-textured Dortmunder export-style lager perfect for pairing with outdoor activities or sipping at the bar.
Enjoy it on draft at the Muskellunge taproom and at select establishments in the Canton area. For more info, head over to facebook.com/muskybrewco
