The Great Ontario-Hopped Craft Beer Competition was won by The Exchange Brewery of Niagara-on-the-Lake less than a month after opening.

 

Teaming up with Clear Valley Hops of Nottawa, the Exchange Brewery brewed an American amber ale that clearly wowed the judges.

 

 

Owner Robin Ridesic hired brewer Sam Maxbauer from Michigan to oversee beer production at this well fitted out brewery that has both a main floor and an upstairs bar

 
The brewery is located in a heritage building dating from the 1880s and was formerly the site of Niagara’s first telephone exchange, thus the name of the brewery and the use of numbers in the naming of its beers. exchange brewery brewhouse
