The Fryfogel Fox- 473ml Can
Lager | 4.5% AVB 18 IBU
The Refreshing light Fryfogel Fox is named after the last remaining Canada Company tavern build along the Huron Tract. In 1828 Sebastian Fryfogel was commissioned to build on the Huron tract close to Shakespeare. Construction of the current inn began in 1844. Not only was it used as a stagecoach stop and inn, but it also brought community together both politically and socially. The building ran as a tavern until 1867 as the Grand Truck Railway was built in 1850 and became the more popular mode of transportation.
Who we are
Owned by a husband and wife duo who have been wanting to break off on their own and start a brewery in Stratford area. 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.
