East Central Ontario, between Toronto and Kingston, is home to several unique and interesting craft breweries. Here are why craft breweries in East Central Ontario are FABulous.
1. They Throw Festivals
To celebrate their first anniversary, the MacKinnon Brothers Brewing Co. decided to organize “Back-to-the-Farm,” a day of craft beer, local music and food, and fun with friends. The event touted its own Facebook and Twitter accounts as well as the hashtag, #BackToTheFarm.
2. They Support Local Organizations
The folks at Barley Days Brewery are never too busy to support a local organization, like the Children’s Mental Health Fundraiser held in Prince Edward County earlier this summer.

3. They Always Have a Bottle Opener
The fine folks at Church-Key Brewing always have a spare bottle opener… or two.
4. Offering Awesome Beverage Flights
Can’t choose just one? The County Canteen offers flights of beer, also known as the Canteen Beer Flight. Cheers!

5. They Have Sweet Swag
The breweries in East Central Ontario, like County Road Beer, have created some awesome swag that you’ll want to have! You can even shop online!
We’ve taken over a corner at @hinterlandwine we are selling Hoodies, men’s and women’s t’s, baseball caps, and sweat bands (to help you channel your inner angry ’80s tennis player!). Online shop coming soon. Stay tuned!
