The Perfect Setting for a Historic Brewery
How can you improve on an authentic recreation of an 1860s Ontario brewery? By setting it in fully re-created 1860s village with all of the workshops, homes and gardens of that era. When you visit the Black Creek Historic Brewery, you enter the world of early Ontario.
Black Creek Pioneer Village is set on 30 acres of rural landscape in the northwest corner of the City of Toronto. The Village includes 40 heritage buildings each outfitted entirely with period furniture, tools and household items – all drawn from our collection of over 50,000 historical artifacts. The Village also includes a farm, with heritage breeds of livestock, a working mill and twelve beautiful gardens where numerous heritage varieties of plants and vegetables are still cultivated.
Twice daily, visitors can join the Black Creek Historic Brewery Tour to learn the whole story of how beer was made, starting with how the ingredients are grown, right through to sampling the beer. You can see where grain was milled and how barrels were made at the Cooperage. We already have hops growing in our gardens and are working toward to having barley produced on site and developing our own malting operation.
