Beers for Everyone!

From the curious to the enthusiast, this local brewery has something for all tastes.

The culinary and craft beverage scene in Northwest Ontario continues to grow with the addition of another craft brewer! If you are looking to kick back and relax with a beer in Thunder Bay, stop by Dawson Trail Craft Brewery.

Owners George Renner and Jon Kivinen have been hobby-brewing for four years, so when the idea of opening their own brewery was born, building a brew system 20 times the size of their original backyard setup was a greatly appealing challenge.
