How We Boar

The Origin of Craft

You’ve come to a place where four simple ingredients rule the day. The home of Ontario’s first craft brewer. Waterloo Brewing since 1984.


Many North American brewers use barley with six rows of seeds. It costs less to grow. But at Waterloo Brewing, we insist on the superior quality of two-row barley.


At Waterloo, we take pride in sourcing a variety of premium hops to give our
customers plenty of choice in the depth and bite when it comes choosing their favourite brew.



No default strains that do little more than create alcohol for us! We take the road less travelled in search of yeast strains bred for complex, more interesting side flavours.


Our locally sourced water brings forward the character of our hops, giving our beers the elegant bite not found in mass-produced beers.
