As part of the public initiative to support social distancing and in accordance with public health order, our local breweries and distilleries have had to temporarily close their tap rooms and restaurants, as well as suspend tours.  The following Barrels Bottles Brews partners and local craft breweries are offering various options for ordering with pick up and delivery.  Each establishment will continue to closely monitor the situation and operate responsibly.

As of 12:01am on Thursday April 8th the province of Ontario instituted a province wide Stay-At-Home order that impacts all businesses, attractions and activities in the region. To learn more click here.

Please click the below for additional details on how this Stay-At-Home impacts businesses. Residents are asked to stay home, only leaving for necessary purchases and services.

  • Indoor and outdoor events or social gatherings are not permitted at this time for those other than who you reside with
  • Face coverings required indoors at all work and public spaces

Currently we are not offering Flight Log tasting passports for sale, and establishments may not be offering tasting flights or redemption of Flight Log’s at this time due to limited service options.
