CANTON — Esber Distributing here recently added a Canadian brewer’s products to its portfolio of craft beers.

 Top Shelf Classic Lager is the flagship brand for Lake of Bays Brewing Co. of Baysville, Ontario. Created to appeal to both craft and mainstream beer drinkers alike, Top Shelf has just 4.5 percent ABV and 15 IBUs.

According to Darren Smith, Lake of Bays president, the brewery has made a name for itself by focusing on a somewhat underserved sector of the craft beer market.
