Black Creek Historic Brewery

Black Creek Historic Brewery is located in the Halfway House Pub in Toronto's Black Creek Pioneer Village. The brews made on site and for sale there are distinct from the commercially available brews under the Black Creek name.  At the brewery, unfiltered 19th Century-style brews are interpreted by the brewmaster--a very interesting guy with an infectious enthusiasm for beers and brewing.  There are some pretty cool things about Black Creek: it might be Ontario's smallest microbrewery and it occasionally produces an Estate Ale, a "100 meter" beer, using barley and hops grown in sight of the brewery.

While at the brewery, I sampled a few different ales: a brown ale, an stout, and a best bitter.  Each was only mildly carbonate, cloudy, and quite delicious.

If you're in Toronto, interested in history, and dig beer, I highly recommend a trip out to the Black Creek Pioneer Village and its Black Creek Historic Brewery.
