Map: Ontario’s micro-breweries


TORONTO –  If you’re in Ontario and plan on drinking a beer this long weekend, there is a good chance you’ll be reaching for a cold one brewed by one of the 60-odd microbreweries licensed to operate in the province.

Small breweries account for nearly 30 per cent of Ontario’s brewery industry, and are worth over $400 million annually, according to the Ontario Craft Brewers (OCB) – an association of about 30 small breweries across the province.

Last year, provincial brews led LCBO sales in all categories and saw a 45 per cent jump in sales.

Though the OCB is comprised of some of the region’s most well-known (and respected) micro-breweries, the Ontario Ministry of Finance lists roughly 60 companies that are licensed to brew beer through March 2014.

You can find them all on the map above.
