Northumberland County’s brewers Gather to Brew a Local Beer

Cobourg, Ontario – The craft brewers in Northumberland County are planning on brewing a collaboration beer.

“We are not in competition with one another. Instead, we are working together to build a strong industry in our region. A high tide raises all ships” John Graham, founder of Church Key Brewing.

Confirmed participants are Church Key Brewing of Cambellford, Empire Cider of Codrington, William Street Beer Co. of Cobourg, Bickle Farm – Valley Hops of Port Hope, Barn Owl Malts of Stirling and Pleasant Valley Hops of Hillier

All area beverage producers have been invited to participate, so they are hopeful that others will participate.

Participating companies are gathering on Wednesday April, 27th at the William Street Beer Company in Cobourg to produce a truly local beer using entirely local ingredients. In fact, this beer will be fully comprised of ingredients grown within 75km of the brewery. This includes barley, hops, apples, honey and a few other surprises.

Media and other interested parties are invited to visit with them during the brew day on April 27th at 412 William Street in Cobourg. Please RSVP if you plan to attend.
