A couple of years ago, a new local microbrewery opened up below the famous Rhubarb restaurant in Carnarvon. Located at the corner of Hwy 118 and 35, Boshkung Brewery might make some of the best beer you’ve yet to taste. It also happens to be right around the corner from my family cottage (which isn’t a bad thing at all!)

They have a great variety of beers and a number of really delicious flavours that they rotate throughout the season. For example, 12 Mile Pumpkin Ale is available in October just in time for Hallowe’en. It’s a great beer to share with friends and family at Thanksgiving.

I enjoyed a few of their different flavours this summer but my favourite was definitely North Country Kellerbier (5.0%, 23 IBU). It’s fantastic! Amazingly, the folks at Boshkung Brewery can also hook you up with pizza if you call ahead to order. Talk about one-stop satisfaction!

Each weekend my wife, baby and I climb into my Chevy Colorado... aka the white sheep… aka the cottage vehicle and drive up to the cottage in hopes to make it up before the sunset or in time for a quick ski or for dinner. We are really hoping to fit in all three! But, if we don't get it all in Friday night, we still have the rest of the weekend to do that plus… play games, BBQ's, see friends and family, campfires, swimming, skating, tobogganing, beers, pranks, boating, cliff jumping, rope swings, water falls, river rides, fire works, relax and so much more! I love the cottage and everything that goes with it.
