This neighbourhood hub is the perfect place to spend quality time with friends, family, and fellow fans of craft beer no matter the weather. While “Storm Stayed” refers to poor conditions keeping people in, here it’s more about community that forms through shared events. So grab a stool at the bar, gather around a table, or enjoy a spot on the patio. This bright, spacious venue is inclusive to everyone.
Nestled between The Coves and Old South neighbourhoods, an easy walk to many London attractions, Storm Stayed Brewing Co. is a popular gathering place known to host seasonal farmers’ markets, trivia, and other events. The bright spacious taproom is the first sign that this is an environment that fosters community, with large sharable tables that are great for enjoying a bite and a brew. Simple, clean lines and contemporary styling put the focus on the people, and you’ll find friendly, knowledgeable staff eager to welcome you, your group of friends, or your family.
The focus is on hop-forward ales and fruited sours, along with a core lineup of modern and traditional styles, from crisp and clean, malty and sweet, to dark and roasty. A one-barrel pilot system exclusively dedicated to experimentation, guest taps, and a Sunday Beer Cocktail keep things dynamic. Recommendations include: Sunburst — a New England Pale Ale— citrusy with subdued bitterness, hazy and crushable; Patina — an Irish Red Ale — easy-drinking with notes of caramel and light toast; Shook — a Milkshake Kettle Sour — refreshing with massive additions of fruit, vanilla and lactose; and The Hunter — an American Porter — nearly black with dark roast coffee and chocolate flavours.
The menu at Storm Stayed changes seasonally, with a consistently careful curation of food options that pair perfectly with beer. Last summer, part of the menu featured Tacos (think barbacoa beef, crispy chicken, refried bean, etc.) Now, you’ll find delicious sandwiches with a notable standout being the French Dip, with shaved beef, horseradish aioli, au jus, and housemade chips.
