Video: Canoeist Stars In Beer Ad

Cross-Canada paddler Mike Ranta and a beer delivery by voyageur canoe is featured in new promotional ad

Cross-Canada canoeist Mike Ranta can now add beer star to his resume. Ranta recently made a surprise appearance paddling a voyageur canoe in a commercial for Manitoulin Brewing Company’s new Killarney Cream Ale.

Manitoulin Brewing Company made the first delivery of Killarney Cream Ale via a 30-foot cedar-strip voyageur canoe. A small group departed from the brewery in Little Current on Manitoulin Island and paddled 25 miles of Lake Huron’s Georgian Bay to the quaint town of Killarney.

“This epic voyage transcended the odds. We succeeded in paddling through high winds, three-foot waves, rain, snow, and thankfully a little sun,” the company posted to its Facebook page after the frigid November journey.

The publicity stunt inspired a new canoe and kayak race called the Current To Killarney. It follows the same route and debuted on July 6, 2019.
