Beer in a Bubble, Georgian Bay Style

We Canadians sure won’t let a little cold weather stop us from enjoying our patio brews and views! With our boats stored away, weekends can be a bit dull so if you are looking for a day trip, check out my visit to the Trestle Brewery in Parry Sound. But really all you gotta know is the patio bubbles are warm, the brews are cold, and you can’t beat the Dirty Bird as far as food choices!

Aptly named for the iconic CPR trestle bridge it sits next to, the Trestle Brewery opened it’s doors in 2018 and has become a favorite for boaters and tourists visiting the town in the summer months. My visit this month will be my 5th since they opened and every time has been a great experience.

And it doesn’t have to be sunny out to enjoy a great meal on the patio. The bubbles are enclosed, lit, and heated so you can have lunch or dinner within all year round. I visited on a cool overcast November day and it was toasty warm inside my bubble without the heat on.

For my lunch I started off with the Brew Flight, which is a selection of any four Trestle brews you wish; and don’t worry, the serving staff are great at advising you on choices if you enjoy sampling different tastes. My food order was Butternut Squash soup and of course, the Dirty Bird sandwich. The service was fast and friendly and the food was delicious.

As the beer was so tasty and I was not driving, for desert I decided to sample their cocktail menu and enjoy a rum punch in my bubble! Also very good but seriously, the beer can’t be beat!

And they have a small shop where you can purchase Trestle Brewery logo items, such as mugs, toques and glasses – some great stocking stuffers!
