Craft Beer, Ciders, Distilling
Whether your life’s dream is to own and operate a craft brewery, artisan distillery or produce hand crafted ciders, the FAB Region is an ideal location for you. Here in our FAB Region, residents, tourists, and locally owned restaurants and pubs share the growing interest in purchasing or serving premium, quality, local beverage products. We are strategically located in the middle of what many call the golden triangle of Toronto, Montreal, and Ottawa and close to the 1000 Islands Bridge to the USA.
Recent published articles report that the craft beer industry in Ontario is booming! there are about 50 licensed craft brewers from the Ottawa Valley to South Western Ontario developing premium, high-quality beer based on their unique brewing styles. According to Ontario Craft Brewers, the craft beer market share has more than doubled since 2002 and continues to be the fastest growing LCBO beer segment with annual sales increases of 30-50 percent.
Currently in our region, there is a new distillery producing hand crafted, uniquely flavoured gins and vodkas using locally grown ingredients, cider producers and two thriving micro-breweries in our region and there is more than sufficient market interest to support another three to five craft beer companies. You can spend more than $1 million opening up your dream brewery, or as little as $20,000 for an on-farm craft brewery, whatever your preference, we can help you live your dream of owning your own brewery.
