This product was inspired by my grandparent’s log cabin in the woods in Canada. When I was young I used to go to my grandparent’s cabin every weekend. After my parents moved to the United States we still continued to go every Christmas as my parents loved to go there. The origin of my grandparents’ private retreat came from my ancestor Joseph Dumont who established his family in a small village called Pintendre in 1710. He owned most of the village, which was inhabited by Indians at that time. The Dumont families were a very important part of the population growth of the village. Generations after generation lands were given to children to live from agriculture. In the late sixties my great grandfather Dumont decided to give a piece of his land to all of his children. Together they built cottages around the lake that became their private retreat mainly for the summer and winter. It was a beautiful and peaceful place in the middle of the woods. Every Sunday the whole family would go to the cottage and relax for the weekend. I had nothing but good memories about that place. When the kids were skating on the lake during the winter the adults were relaxing while discussing and enjoying a great tasting beer.
