    VISIT CASINO RAMA IN ORILLIA

    by LoriPori Updated Apr 4, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Casino Rama

    Located north-east of Creemore in Orillia, CASINO RAMA is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Over 2,300 slot machines, more than 110 gaming tables, poker room, 9 restaurants, weekly big-name concerts and a 300 room all-suite luxury hotel & spa.
    Hans and I went in to see it and it was absolutely beautiful. Native Indian inspired interior with wood ceiling beams. Hansi did OK on the slot machines, but I decided not to play as you got vouchers for your winnings instead of coins. I like the jingle of the coins. What can I say!!!

    VISIT LAKE COUCHICHING IN ORILLIA

    Boardwalk - Lake Couchiching

    Steps from Downtown Orillia is a beautiful waterfront park on LAKE COUCHICHING.
    Hans, Jane and I parked the car, got out and walked along the boardwalk. Folks were enjoying the warm, sunny Saturday afternoon on their boats.
    Also available is the Orillia Boat Cruises that we saw sailing on Lake Couchiching. So all in all -- a very lovely spot to spend the day.

    The filling line

    A picture of the filling line. Creemore is bottled in 500 ml bottles. Hahaha, I have to admit I had to smile to see the micro brewery. Everything is so "micro", I am not used to that at all. The filling line seemed to go slow, and labour intensive. And the lagertanks were so much smaller, than the brewery where I used to work. Fun though to see the differences between the two.

    The brewhouse

    The brewhouse


    This is a picture of the brewhouse. Here is how the brewing process goes (info from the Creemore Springs website)

    It is in the brew house that the first three ingredients come together. The combination of hot water, milled malted barley grains and hops; stirred slowly, allowed to rest and adjusted for temperature, yields a golden amber liquid called wort. The right mix of age old art and science, beer begins. Our detailed brewing process includes a rigorous adherence to premium brewing specifications and constant monitoring and testing.

    The final ingredient, yeast, is added to the wort which is then transferred to the fermentation cellar. The traditional difference between lagers and ales is the long fermentation and cold maturation period for lagers. Each batch of beer will spend 21 days in a process of fermentation and maturation prior to being filtered and packaged.

    Creemore Springs Brewery

    by sim1 Updated Sep 21, 2002

    Not only is Creemore a lovely village, it also has a great microbrewery "Creemore Springs".
    It is located on the main street of Creemore (Mill street), and you can't miss it when you walk here. During the "Kettle Festival" they had a guided tour through the brewery, and that was something I didn't want to miss. I've worked for a big brewery in Holland for about 10 years, and it was fun to have a look around in a microbrewery located so close to my home.
