We’re country casual, more shorts and sandals than suit and tie and so are our beers. The IPAs, sour ales, dark stouts and every other flavor and colour combination are best enjoyed on a warm summer day on the cottage deck, while tending to the grill, after a round of golf or sitting around a campfire.

Located a stone’s throw away from the shores of Lake Huron, you will find Bad Apple Brewing Company Ltd. The craft brewery is located in a renovated century barn, surrounded by an orchard where they grow some produce that is found in their very own recipes. Despite the name, you’ll find no bad apples here, priding themselves on their country atmosphere, hospitality and, of course, lots of craft beer!
