- Growlers: We are not currently selling growlers nor are we taking empty returns of growlers, cans or bottles. Hold on to them for now, as we will continue with business as usual as soon as it is safe to do so. At this time, we have cans, bottles and kegs available for purchase online or in our store.
- Kegs: We are offering kegs at this time as well! For all keg purchases for your home kegerator, please be sure to add a keg deposit. This amount will be refunded after the empty keg has been returned to us. If you are purchasing your second keg from us and you currently have an empty keg to be returned, please make note of that in your order notes. On your delivery day, we ask that you leave the keg out for us to pickup- this way you can avoid paying a second keg deposit fee. We have sanke kegs only, no ball lock at this time and we also cannot provide a kegerator or tap handles at this time. If you plan to drop-in the bottle shop to pick up a keg, please do call ahead so we can prepare your order for you. We do not always have stock of all brands in all keg sizes so a phone call ahead of time can assist us in getting prepped for a smooth pickup!

Q: I'm thinking of dropping in to the brewery for the first time- what can I expect?
A: Welcome! We are looking forward to meeting you! Our staff will gladly show you the ropes, introduce you to our products and space, as well as answer any questions you may have about us or brewing in general. We have flights available so you can sample a few beers and find your favourite or we also pour 12oz glasses, if you're ready to commit and hang out for a while! We always have a variety of brands and formats available so feel free to let us know a little bit about what you're looking for and we'll be happy to help find the beer that best suits your needs.
Q: How do growlers work?
A: The glassware itself is a $4.00 purchase for 1L and $5.00 purchase for 2L. The beer is an additional cost depending on the brand you choose. We recommend you drink the growler soon after purchase as fresh is always best- however, they will last up to three weeks if stored upright and chilled. Once finished, bring back your empty growler and trade it in for a full one for just the cost of the beer.
Q: Where can I find your beer?
A: Some of our core brands are available all year round at select LCBO, Grocery and Beer Store locations. We are also on tap at various bars and restaurants across Ontario.
Q: Is your beer gluten free?
A: Due to the nature of brewing and the ingredients used in most of our product as well as the size of our facility, we are unable to produce gluten free beer at this time.
Q: Do you serve food at the brewery?
A: We do not serve food regularly at our facility, however we do have food trucks and caterers in often (keep posted to our instagram for updates) and we also encourage you to bring food from home or get delivery from one of our lovely local restaurants!
