Come Share a Pint from the Past!

Opened to the public in June 2009, Black Creek Historic Brewery is located in the heart of beautiful Black Creek Pioneer Village. Here we have recreated a working brewery, as it would have been in the mid-1800s. Our brewers, in period costume, handcraft the same ales and porters enjoyed in Ontario’s country villages before Confederation.

Visitors to the Village can enjoy a lively brewery tour led by our knowledgeable interpreters. This unique historic tour ends with a tasting of authentic period ales, and visitors are welcome to stay afterwards to enjoy a cold pint in our cozy on-site pub, or take home a Growler of beer - a 64-ounce refillable jug that was commonly used in the 1800s to transport beer. Cheers!


The Ultimate Canadian Craft Beer Experience

Kegs at Black Creek Historic Brewery

The Ultimate Canadian Craft Beer Experience takes you on a taste-filled trip from the 1860s to present day, as you explore the flavours and history of stouts, porters, ales and lagers. Head to your first stop--the Black Oak Brewery. Join the owner himself as he explains the craft brewing process on a tour of his brewery and taste his award-winning beers. Next, travel back to the 1860s at the Black Creek Historic Brewery. Learn how beer was made over a hundred years ago, ask the brewmaster questions and sample suds brewed following authentic, historic recipes. After a three-course lunch, it's off to the Mill Street Brewery. See one of the most modern craft brewing facilities in the country and try award-winning creations including Toronto's only organic beer. For your final stop, rendezvous in the Royal York Hotel bar for conversation and a one-of-a-kind pint--Royal Stinger, made using honey produced by the rooftop hives of the hotel. The Ultimate Canadian Craft Beer Experience is proud to be a Canadian Signature Experience.
