Our Apple-Growing Heritage

ThornburyOntario’s apple-growing heritage
Our beer originates from Thornbury Village, namesake of the well-known apple growing and cider making region of Thornbury, England. Thornbury is the largest apple growing region in Ontario today, but this story began in the mid-1800s when immigrants discovered the Niagara Escarpment soil and the water of Nottawasaga Bay was perfect for growing apples.

The Tale of the Cider House Building
The Thornbury Village Cider & Brew House building was originally a wooden apple storage building but was rebuilt with fire-proof concrete after it burnt down in the 1920s. Steam trains would arrive from the harbor in Toronto and return loaded with crates of apples from the original Thornbury building. As storage buildings were built closer to the markets, the building lived through different lives—a flea market, an ammunition storage, and a nuclear fallout shelter during the cold war.
