Durham Region’s craft beer scene is thriving! Here’s where to find Durham’s local brewers:
Brock Street Brewing Company: Beer enthusiasts can sample new products and purchase beer directly from the retail store, which is equipped with a 12 tap bar. Drop in for a weekend brewery tour and check out the equipment, enjoy samples, and talk beer with the brewmasters and owners. Fans of the brewery can also buy clothing, beer Steins, pint glasses, and posters. Location: 1501 Hopkins Street, Unit 3, Whitby.
5 Paddles Brewing Co: There’s always something new in the fridge at 5 Paddles, with names like Grim Reaper Pumpkin Oatmeal Stout, The Phantom Maple Weizenbock, and Steam Punk IPA. Buy at the brewery, or at popular GTA bars and restaurants. Location: 1390 Hopkins Street, Unit #3, Whitby.
Manantler Craft Brewing: Find four signature brews, plus special collections and one-offs in the brewery fridge, like Time Damage IPA, inspired by the Canadian punk band The Diodes. The brewery hosts live music and open mic nights, too. Location: 182 Wellington Street, Bowmanville.
All or Nothing Brewhouse: Unlike other Durham craft brewers, this Oshawa brewery has put all their efforts into their yellow-canned All or Nothing Hopfenweisse. Available at select LCBO and Beer Stores, restaurants and bars, the brewery doesn’t sell directly to the public, and is brewed off-site. But fans can buy lots of Brewhouse swag directly from the website, including t-shirts, beer glasses, and tap handles.
