Creemore Springs
In 1987 craft breweries were the exception, not the norm. But that wasn’t stopping John Wiggins. With the help of two friends, one master brewer and the town of Creemore behind him, he set up shop in a repurposed hardware store, right on the main street. And so, with a copper kettle, an open flame, and a unique ethos of brewing the right way, John and the town of Creemore started something truly special.

As the decades passed and the legend grew, the small brewery at the centre of Creemore became a landmark of the area. With simplicity at its heart and the spirit of Creemore at its core, what started as a town favourite spread further afield, quickly becoming a hidden gem of Canadian brewing. In 2023, we were awarded the Best Vienna Lager in Canada by the World Beer awards.

From 1987 to now, the world has changed and accelerated in ways nobody predicted. But some things will always stay true. All our beers are brewed in Creemore, in small batch and on open flame, using Creemore spring water. Our big heart spirit is brewed into every drop.
