Independent, family-owned breweries create a unique blend of ingredients to give you a beverage you can talk about. They use local ingredients to bring in new seasonal flavours, so you’ll have something different to sample every time you visit.
They invest a lot of time and energy into the quality of the product, and getting to know the names of their customers, instead of huge marketing campaigns. They’d rather support local charities and events.
Visit these five stops on our craft brew self-guided route to meet the makers—and appreciate their handiwork.
