Rainhard Brewing Co.

The original Stockyards brewery, Rainhard Brewing opened to the public in May 2015 in a former refinery - a 1940’s style manufacturing plant, renovated and modernized with sandblasted walls and exposed ceilings while retaining the original glass paned windows. The bar has been designed and built by Jordan Rainhard himself in the heart of the brew house, surrounded by brewing vessels, fermenters and oak barrels.

We pride ourselves on making quality beer, using only the freshest ingredients. Our philosophy is simple…We brew the beer that we love to drink!

Backyard Beer Tours - Left Field Brewery

Know that feeling you get on opening day, after a walk-off home run or a suspenseful no-hitter? That’s exactly how we feel about beer.

We started Left Field Brewery under a simple philosophy: that great beer is about great taste and good times. We believe that honesty is always the best policy and that what you see is what you get. We strive to make distinct, flavourful beers that can stand on taste alone. We brew the styles of beers that we like to drink, inspired by the sport that we love.

Rorschach Brewing - Backyard Beer Tours

As a small brewery and tasting room, we intend to experiment with different brewing styles, unique ingredients and innovative techniques, but we will always have a heavy focus on the specific styles of beer that we enjoy to brew and drink.

We believe these to be hop-forward beers that emphasize hop aroma and flavour over hop bitterness, as well as saison and mixed-fermentation farmhouse style beers that are dry, effervescent and intriguingly complex. We hold balance and drinkability to be the goals that we strive for in the beers that we create.

Halo Brewery

Halo is a small brewery, tasting room, and bottle shop located in Toronto's Junction Triangle. Well, technically we're 10 steps on the other side of the tracks, but who's counting?

 We make ales that are rooted in the Belgian and American brewing philosophies of artistry and experimentation, which is just a fancy way of saying that we refuse to let the same old beer styles restrict us.

We are forever indebted to the amazing brewers who came before us and freely shared their knowledge with the brewing community. As our way of giving back, we're committed to not only sharing our beer with you, but also our recipes and processes. Cheers!
