Are you looking to road trip somewhere in South Eastern Ontario but not sure where to go? Check out these microbreweries, do a couple of tastings, and stock up on your favourites.
Stone City Ales defeats the saying “you can’t please everybody” in the only categories that matter – beer and food. Priding themselves on always providing top-notch ale, this local brewery stays true to tradition while adding their distinct creativity to give each pint its own character. Round out your evening with some mouthwatering and unique meal pairings such as their Savoury Pancakes, made with house sauerkraut and wildwood cheese.
Newish to Kingston, Spearhead Brewery is paving its path to becoming one of Kingston’s best brewing companies. Founded in Toronto in 2011, this brewery found its permanent home in Kingston back in 2016. With a retail shop open late, you can grab drinks and accessories to take home with you after a long-days work. If you’d like more of an experience, take a seat in their tap room, open from 11AM every day to experience the brewing process in real time, or take a tour of their state-of-the-art brewery.
One of Ontario’s oldest brewpubs, established in 1986, Kingston Brewing Company is Canada’s oldest wine-producing pub. You can take in the awesome brew-themed decor and may have a hard time choosing just one of their many bubbly beers available. Try out their White Tail Lagered Ale, or sip on the Cran-apple Cider and top it all off with a mouthwatering lamb burger to really make a memorable experience.
