Canada’s first recorded brewer was Jesuit Brother Ambroise, who began making beer in 1646 after the foundation of New France. A few decades later, in 1688, the first commercial brewery in Canada was founded by Great Intendant Jean Talon. It was so successful that its beer exported as far away as the West Indies.
While we appreciate the foundation built by the industrial beers of past generations, we are in the midst of a significant cultural shift. Today, there are nearly a thousand craft breweries from coast to coast. Science, art and passion have merged to create one of the most dynamic and delicious industries in Canada.
Come, let 5 VINES be your conduit to flavour country. Our vast craft beer selection changes almost daily as we work hard to bring you the latest and tastiest new brews.
