LONDON BREWING: From Plough to Pint

Written by The Editors

London Brewing cares deeply about the quality of their ingredients and the sustainability of their product. They’re one of two Certified Organic craft breweries in Ontario and one of less than 20 in all of Canada. This is a democratic enterprise, owned by its employee members, who seek to create great beer and good jobs and have a positive impact on their community.

The Scene

London Brewing is located in the heart of Old East Village. The decor, complete with overhead cranes, reclaimed metal roofing, and reclaimed furniture throughout, celebrates local ingredients, sustainable practices, and the manufacturing tradition of the building. Enjoy the welcoming Taproom, with snack food options, classic pinball, board games, and a full view of the brewing process. There is both indoor and outdoor casual seating and a fully-stocked Retail Store. Check out the Facebook Events page for details such as Open Mic, Euchre, and Live Music Nights.

Brewing with Local Ingredients

Menu Highlights

This is the epitome of local beer. All of London Brewing’s beers feature Ontario-grown ingredients (most coming from within 117 km of the brewery) and it was the first Craft Malt Certified brewery in Canada. Visitors can purchase 4-ounce tasting flights and 12-ounce drinks or grab growlers, bottles, and cans to-go. Notable flagship beers include London Organic Lager, clean tasting for hot summer days but complex enough to be enjoyed all year long, and Front Porch Organic Session IPA, a bright, lively, and light sessionable mosaic IPA with subtle notes of juicy citrus throughout, perfect for both casual and dedicated craft beer drinkers. More certified organic brews are in development and awaiting certification. Working with farmers and maltsters and moving toward a complete line of organic products is central to London Brewing’s mission to be sustainable and support Ontario’s farming communities.
