As we prepare for the return of warm weather, open patios, and late nights spent once again enjoying each other’s company, Canadians will also be celebrating the return of craft beer to their festivities. Over the past several years, Canadian breweries have benefited from the surging popularity of craft beer, particularly in the spring and summer months. Featuring diverse flavours, an array of profiles, and a label that often tells a story, Canadian breweries have captured the hearts of their customers. The best part? By choosing to patronize Canadian breweries, you’re helping to support local businesses at the same time.

As small-scale breweries have sprouted across the country, more and more Canadians are converting from their summer Caesars and mojitos. From IPAs to sours to stouts, the craft-beer boom is growing rapidly, and for good reason. But with so many breweries available, it’s become almost overwhelming to explore.

But to help you in your quest to find your next go-to summer beverage, we’ve curated a perfect list of alcoholic and non-alcoholic breweries across Canada, from smaller microbreweries to large-scale brewing houses, bringing together individuals from far and wide to tell stories through their craft beer.

It’ll be love at first sip, we promise.
