Niagara Craft Beer is popping up everywhere in the Niagara Region. The Exchange Brewery is one of the newest breweries in Niagara, located in the quaint and historic town of Niagara-on-the-Lake. On a beautiful summer afternoon or evening, this is the place to be.
Here’s their story:
The Exchange is a new premium brewery and tasting room located in Niagara-on-the-Lake’s Old Town heritage district. Although the town is known as the heart of Ontario’s wine country, it is also the scene of a burgeoning craft-brewing industry. With brewing and agricultural roots that stretch back to the late 1700s, Niagara-on-the-Lake is the perfect home for The Exchange’s approach to brewing, which blends traditional and modern techniques and equipment.
They focus on making exceptional craft beers using only the highest quality ingredients, including local Niagara fruits. Their selection includes a range of American styles along with sour and funky Belgian-style beers and ales.
Their brewery houses a 10BBL brewhouse with 5 large fermenters and 8 serving vessels running straight to our draft lines. The cellar is equipped with 2 large German-made Hungarian oak Foeders and 50 French oak wine barrels obtained from the Pearl Morissette Winery in Jordan. Their Belgian-style ales spend a range of time maturing in this oak to develop their distinctive and complex flavours.
The tasting room features 2 8-tap bars: one on the main level and one in our intimate event space upstairs. Each bar features a selection of our flagship brews along with our seasonals and specialty limited-release beers.
Beer is available to take home in bottles and growlers in their retail store. With a wide variety of styles there is a beer for everyone. There’s more than just wine in Niagara!
