Create an itinerary including Walkerville Brewery
A place of heritage, community and of course – great hand crafted beer. Our history begins with Hiram Walker; a man better known as the manufacturer of great spirits including the world famous Canadian Club whiskey. Something many people don’t know is that Mr. Walker was also a beer man, and had a keen eye for the finer things in life. So when he opened the original Walkerville Brewery in 1890, he told the citizens and workers of his company and city that he would provide an ‘Honest Beer”. What he meant was anything produced from his brewery would only be crafted of the finest ingredients – no exceptions. Over 120 years later, we brew our beer with the same ideology using unpasteurised single batches, no artificial preservatives, flavours or colour to provide beer lovers with premium, fresh hand crafted brew. Today’s Brewery operates in one of Mr. Walker’s original buildings known as “Surge Plant 16”. Once an overflow storage facility for the production of whisky, this re-purposed 18,000 square foot facility is now home to the finest beer produced in Essex County and includes a tap room, community space and a retail shop.

Tours: Saturdays (or by appointment): 12:30 pm, 3:30 pm & 5 pm, $7

The tour includes a guided historical tour of the brewery, a sampling of beers available, and a 12 Oz. glass of beer of your choice to enjoy.

  • We attended during an organized bus tour the other night. The staff were well set up and prepared for the 18 of us. We sampled 3 of their beers and 1 cider. All were very tasty. Pizza was brought...

  • Found this great brewery on our trip. Beautiful interior space with, large selection of draft beer. The Unfiltered Honest Lager and Geronimo IPA were my two favourites. Will definitely be going back with a group to experience the rest of the menu.
  • Great beer and great environment! I usually stop at local breweries and happy I stopped here. They had live music, minor eats, lots of good beers, lots of seating, and it was busy. I also appreciate the history of Walkerville and the beer near the entrance. I recommend people stop in and try out some beer.
