WE’LL BE BREWING MAY 1st, just in time for the May 2-4 long weekend.

After 18 months of planning, renovating and commissioning, we are beginning to see the proverbial light at the end of the tunnel. We’re optimistically predicting that we will be brewing our first batch of beer in early May. We are pumped (pun intended) to be able to bring brewing back to Hamilton and to continue the deep-rooted tradition of brewing that began in 1947 when Hungarian immigrant Andrew Peller decided that Hamilton needed a brewery.

To celebrate another chapter in the city’s historic beer landscape, here’s a sneak peak of our brewery progression:

Spotless cement floor + Fermenters = Stainless Brewhouse heaven.


The Brewhouse: Steps leading to Brewmaster Ryan Morrow’s magic kingdom.


The Brewhouse deck: 50bbl and 5 vessels – that’s a lot of tasty brews!


More fermenters. Can’t have enough of these bad boys.


Bottling line, getting ready to be assembled.

See you in May for a glass of Hamilton’s soon-to-be finest brew!
