Apple Jack’d Ale Returns in a BIG Way to GL Heritage Brewery This Weekend

The fall season has arrived and with the cooler temperatures comes the much anticipated yearly release of one of GL Heritage’s hottest beers. 

Apple Jack’d Ale returns to the line-up this Friday and will be available on tap at the brewery and in tallboys to take home with you… and they’re just getting started from there because this weekend, they’re really going to celebrate Windsor-Essex County’s most popular seasonal style!

What’s this Apple Jack’d craze about, you ask? This smooth, light beer is infused with fresh-pressed, local apples from Meleg’s Lakeview Orchard & Cider Mill and after fermentation, this fruit beer is blended with Apple Caramel Whisky from our good friends just down the road at Wolfhead Distillery. Apple Jack’d Ale is incredibly smooth and delicious with a fresh, low-hop finish, but watch out for the 7% ABV kick!

Every fall when the Apple Jack’d Ale makes its comeback, it is the biggest weekend of the year at GL Heritage Brewery! Come and join the fun festivities on Friday, Oct 7th 3-9pm; Saturday, Oct 8th 9am-9pm (special extended evening hours); and Sunday, Oct 9th 12-5pm. 

“It’s finally here! We are always excited to bring back this very special and super popular seasonal beer containing great local ingredients. The Apple Jack’d Ale has such a tremendous following, we like to kick it off every year with a party to celebrate our very loyal customers and all things local – craft beer, great food and live music. The fall weather looks perfect for this free event, so bring your friends, the kids, the furbabies and join us. And if the wind is right, we just might bring out those bonfires you’ve been asking for again!”, says Jen Desjardins-Grondin, GL Heritage co-owner.

There will be mouth-watering eats served up all weekend by Amherstburg’s own BigMac BBQ, also celebrating their 1-year anniversary! It’s a perfect pairing to enjoy their smoked and grilled meats with a cold and tasty Apple Jack’d Ale! 

“BigMac BBQ had an excellent 1st year in business, and we owe a lot of our success to GL Heritage Brewing Co. where we made our very first public appearance as a pop-up restaurant one year ago this weekend! The great customers of GL Heritage and the crew behind the scenes here are the reason we keep coming back to this amazing partnership. Once again, we look forward to being a part of this fun release weekend where we will have our Apple Jack’d-infused BBQ sauce used in all our dishes, as well as for sale on the GLH shelves!”, says BigMac BBQ owner, Wayne MacLean.

Live music keeps the party moving all weekend, as talented, local musicians turn out the tunes each day. Musical line-up: 

  • James Spence, Friday 5pm – 8pm 
  • Now & Then Band, Saturday 3pm – 7pm 
  • Leighton Bain, Sunday 1pm – 4pm

It’s free to join the fun but space is first come, first served – so get there early to secure your spot under the big tent for the music! Dress for the weather and feel free to bring your lawn chairs and blankets. GL Heritage Brewing company is always ready to welcome families and is very pet-friendly.
