#brewerYQG

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 Trail partners are offering various options for ordering with pick up and delivery.  Each establishment will continue to closely monitor the situation and operate responsibly.

The province of Ontario announced a phased in approach to reopening businesses. As of Friday June 11th the Province of Ontario is in Stage One of the Roadmap to Reopen. Step One of the Roadmap to Reopen includes but is not limited to:

  • Outdoor social gatherings and organized public events with up to 10 people;

Restaurants, bars and other food and drink establishments

  • Outdoor dining with up to four people per table, with exceptions for larger households;
For additional details please visit our COVID-19 Hub.
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. For more details on what all businesses in Windsor Essex should be doing and how the COVID-19 pandemic is impacting travel within our region please click here.

With the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and local health unit regulations, the services provided below may change. Please contact the brewery or distillery directly to confirm their current offerings.
