McAuslan is one of Canada's finest and most respected breweries, located in Montreal, Quebec. McAuslan has been slowly entering the Ontario market, having a presence in the LCBOs for a few years now, and more recently supplying their beers on draught to the province's good pubs.

McAuslan is probably best known for their wonderful St. Ambroise Oatmeal Stout, a world-class brew. This was one of the first McAuslan products available in Ontario, and is available in 6-packs in LCBOs and draught at pubs.

Other McAuslan products regularly available in Ontario are: St. Ambroise Pale Ale (6-packs and draught), and Griffon Extra Pale Ale (6-packs and draught). Also, Griffon Brown Ale and Cream Ale are available on draught only in a number of pubs in Toronto (see below).

The LCBO has also in the past released a number of McAuslan's other beers, including their Apricot Wheat Ale (3-packs) and Spiced Pumpkin Ale (3-packs).

The LCBO has also released the wonderful Vintage Ale each of the last two winters. This strong (9.4%) ale was first brewed in January of 1999 and released in the winter in honour of McAuslan's tenth anniversary. There were only a limited number of cases brewed, and each bottle was individually numbered and boxed. This is an extremely flavourful brew, suitable for aging. The Vintage Ale was first released in November of 2000. McAuslan has brewed a second Vintage Ale, which debuted in Quebec in September of 2001, and again was released in Ontario in winter.

One product that was briefly released in Ontario was McAuslan Scotch Ale. This strong ale, new to Ontario, was part of the McAuslan Taste Pack, a six bottle sample-pack including two each of the Scotch Ale, Griffon Extra Pale Ale and St. Ambroise Oatmeal Stout. Hopefully this will come back to the province at some point.

Other McAuslan products not currently available in Ontario are: Frontenac Extra Pale Ale, Mystique Cider, Cream Ale, Raspberry Ale (seasonal), and Strong Ale (seasonal).
