Thornbury Village, Ontario – Thornbury Village Craft Cider and Beer held a grand opening celebration and ceremonial apple tree planting last week to celebrate the conclusion of the year-long renovation to their historic apple storage building overlooking beautiful views of Georgian Bay and the Blue Mountains.
Jim Clark, President of Thornbury Village Craft Cider and Brew House commented, “We are thrilled to be able to open our doors to the public following our extensive renovations. Everyone involved in the project is proud of the results and we’re confident that our historic location will become an important landmark in the area, both for local residents and tourists.”
The majority of their craft beer will continue to be produced at the Nobleton Brewery location but the long term goal is to move the brewery to the Thornbury location. They just have some major structural work to complete first.
Thornbury Village Craft Cider and Beer have also rebranded their beer line up to better tell the story of the Thornbury Village.
Blue Mountain Lager is now Heritage ‘1833” lager and is now available in a 355ml can. This is the year that the Town of Thornbury was founded and showcases their building on the front.
Pickup Truck Pilsner now Pickup No.26 will better reflect their location on highway 26 and also showcases a heritage pickup truck on the front.
Dark Horse Lager is now Dam Dark Lager and features a local beaver in reference to the Beaver River and the dams the little critters make on this tributary. There is a local story that a beaver shows up every night at 8:00 pm.
Jubilee Amber Lager is now Ladder Run Lager in reference to the salmon and trout migratory fish ladder that is just down the street from their cider and brew house.
Guests visiting the Craft Cider and Brew House can experience tastings of their premium craft cider and craft beers in addition to many unique small-batch, seasonal offerings only available at their tasting centre.
