Waterloo Region is historically famous for beer and whisky making. Many years ago there was a Labatt plant and the Seagram distillery, both of which closed in the early ‘90s. Craft breweries keep popping up across the Region and here’s a list of our favorites! As always, please let us know what we’re missing.
Descendants – Located on Victoria Street, this brewery has such a great community vibe with events almost every night of the week including Family Fun Days on Sundays. They boast a “European-style bierhalle with a full bar, eatery, and a retail shop with cans, bottles, and growler fills and merchandise”.
Innocente – Voted Waterloo Region’s Favorite Craft Brewery for 2016 and named after Head Brewer, Steve Innocente, this brewery combines a devilishly playful theme with high quality hand crafted beers.
Block Three – Located in the heart of St. Jacobs, this brewery has a friendly vibe, with communal tables and regulars coming and going.
Grand River Brewing – Cambridge has some of the most beautiful old buildings and architecture, and a lush river landscape so it’s ideal for a stop on your brewery tour.
Abe Erb – Abe Erb has a great selection of beers, but their menu and décor is not to be missed. Channeling the pioneer spirit of the Mennonite Erb brothers, this is an experience not be missed.
