Opened to the public in June 2009, Black Creek Historic Brewery is located in the heart of beautiful Black Creek Pioneer Village. Here we have recreated a working brewery, as it would have been in the mid-1800s. Our brewers, in period costume, handcraft the same ales and porters enjoyed in Ontario's country villages before Confederation.
Visitors to the Village can enjoy a lively brewery tour led by our knowledgeable interpreters. This unique historic tour ends with a tasting of authentic period ales, and visitors are welcome to stay afterwards to explore the world of 19th century brewers, or take home a Growler of beer - a 64-ounce refillable jug that was commonly used in the 1800s to transport beer. Cheers!
Growlers available for sale in the Black Creek Historic Brewery daily from 3:00 p.m. to closing, or by appointment. Please call 416-736-1733 for more information.
**Please Note: Unfortunately the Black Creek Historic Brewery will be closed Wednesday, June 22 due to power outages. We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your understanding. We hope to welcome you again to the Brewery again soon.
