Bell City Brewing Company | 51 Woodyatt Dr. #9, Brantford | 519-900-6204
Bell City Brewing Company opened its doors in February 2015 over a shared loved of flavourful beer and the comradery around a pint and its creation. Comradery looks different these days, but Bell City Brewing is there for you, whatever form sharing takes. Grab your favourites or try something new from their retail space open Wednesday-Saturday from 11 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Prefer to stay at home? No problem! Bell City Brewing offers online ordering and free delivery on orders over $40 to Brantford, Paris, St. George and surrounding areas within a 15 kilometre radius. Email them at email@example.com.
Mash Paddle Brewing Co. | 111 Sherwood Dr. #3A, Brantford | 289-253-8157
Mash Paddle began in Theo’s kitchen as something of a science experiment. After many revisions and with the support of his father, wife and brewing partner Matty, they were ready to move out of the kitchen and open a brewery. Patrons praise their beer, their service and the brewery’s atmosphere. Two of those three things can still be enjoyed as they work hard to keep their delicious brews in supply. Visit them on Facebook or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
