At Shakespeare Brewing Company we believe in beer made with Ontario grown ingredients for a true Ontario taste. In the past beer was made from all local ingredients. Pending on which region or country you were in, you would have had a different tasting beer. With this in mind, we intend to use local ingredients so our beer will show you exactly what an Ontario beer tastes like. All while supporting other small local businesses.
Our craft brewery is located in Shakespeare, Ontario, a quaint town 10 minutes from the beautiful city of Stratford, Ontario. Our brewery is located on the main highway through Shakespeare. The building was once used as an old school bus garage and makes a perfect space for a brewery. We have a few regular beers available as well we will have some seasonal/ special batch beers periodically. Our space has our brew house with a small retail space inside. All beers are available to purchase in 500ml bottles, growlers coming soon.
Owned by a husband and wife duo who have been wanting to break off on their own and start a brewery for quite some time. While the two were traveling through Europe in 2014, they stayed at an old English farm that housed a small micro-brewery. This is where Ayden, a trained Mechanical Engineer learned how to brew. When they returned to Canada Ayden began working at Bell City Brewing Company in Brantford as their brewer. Two years later, with his wife Katie, a University of Waterloo graduate by his side they set off on their journey to open their own brewery. They believe that Shakespeare is the perfect place with just the right mix of local beer connoisseurs and drive by tourism traffic headed to the Stratford Festival.
