Experience the Beer from Wine Country.

At Bench Brewing, we take the farmhouse approach to craft brewing and pair it with the local winemaking tradition of the Niagara region. In Ontario’s fruit land, the fertile ecosystem of the land will impart a unique terroir for our beer, just as it does for wine.
