Built as an addition to the existing building in 1995, the tap room allowed us a public space in which to provide a more in-depth sampling experience for our customers. Our recently renovated tap room is a charming and cozy space, perfect for your event needs! Flanked on one side by a gas fireplace, large screen TV and board game shelf, the opposite side has a state of the art 12 tap bar system, and we have filled the room with sturdy locally crafted wooden harvest tables, benches, pub style tables, as well as bar stools if you prefer to be belly-up to the bar.

In addition to our core brands and ever changing unique one-off taps, we have a guest tap featuring local cideries or other breweries. We also serve local wine crafted in the Niagara region. For private functions, we have spirits available upon request.

You will be provided with 10 tokens per person (1 token = 4 oz sample), and your group will enjoy the private space with a personal host that will take you on a guided facility tour of our brewhouse. You can choose a sample from our classic and well balanced core brands, or you can venture off the beaten path and try something unique and different from our one-off series. Please note that this type of sampling has a set time limit of two hours, and the tokens are good for Welly draught only. Wine/cider/spirits available for additional purchase.

We have hosted everything from birthday parties to fundraisers, and even weddings in the tap room! With a full evening rental, you will have use of the space as you need. Although we do not have a kitchen space, we work regularly with a few select local catering businesses that can provide your function with mouth-watering selections of delicious fare. If you have your own preferred caterer, that works for us too! We can provide a full service bar with beer, cider, wine and spirits (limited to standard bar rail), as well as extra tables for food set up. You can bring in a DJ, hook up to our Bluetooth sound system, or even bring in a live band. The room standing capacity is 65 people, and for a seated function we can comfortably host up to 40 people.
