Award-Winning Beers

Fully independent and family-run, Anderson Craft Ales takes pride in crafting small batch, handcrafted, premium beers without compromise, relying on Canadian-grown barley, North American hops, crisp clean water and yeast. “We know you’ll love them,” says Brewmaster Gavin Anderson. “From our family to yours.”

The Anderson Family

The Scene

Located in London’s Old East Village, Anderson Craft Ales has warmed an industrial building with a friendly bar and retail space, a social space and game area on the second floor that overlooks the gleaming tanks and brewing process, and a large and welcoming seasonal patio.

A locally-sourced and thoughtfully curated menu is served out of the in-house kitchen by a team of local chefs, known as EatOA! Think Smoked Beef Tacos with peppercorn gravy, sauteed mushrooms, crispy onions and blue cheese crema, or “Hungary Butcher” Bratwurst simmered in Autumn Ale with a warm potato salad, sauerkraut and beer mustard.


The brewery is a strong community force and recently celebrated its sixth year of business. The team believes in maintaining a family-friendly environment and loves the social aspect of the craft beer community.
