Waterloo Brewing Company is Ontario’s first and largest craft brewer.
City of Cambridge
Grand River Brewing (GRB) is committed to producing fresh, craft brewed beers of outstanding quality for discerning beer drinkers. Located in downtown Cambridge along the Grand River, GRB’s home is the former Galt Knife Company building. This historical building dates back to the beginning of the 20th century, and its unique character was maintained throughout the brewery renovation process.
The goal at Grand River Brewing is to produce full flavoured beers that stand out and change people’s perceptions about how beer should taste. Their beers include Beam Me Up, Mill Race Dark, Tailgate Lager and Red Tail Ale, along with seasonal favourites such as Dogstalker April Bock and Highballer Pumpkin Ale (using pumpkins grown in GRB Owner/ President Bob Hanenberg’s own garden!). Their beers have won many awards provincially, nationally and internationally.
