Red door releases
Exclusive cider and beer releases, only available at our Cider & Brew House!
The Red Door Release fridge gets its name from the original apple storage door, that still exists in the tasting bar today. The door is original to the building and today it leads you into the experience room which archives the history of the Thornbury Village Cider and Brew House.
Available for a limited time, while supplies last!
Barrel Aged Baltic Porter
After winning Best in Canada at the 2019 World Beer Awards, what do you do for an encore? Age it for a year in French Oak wine barrels! Full bodied with a pleasant alcohol warmth, this complex beer features flavours of coffee, dark chocolate, toffee, jammy plum and toasted pumpernickel with a soft roasted malt finish, completed by subtle barrel-aging notes of vanilla and oak. Sounds like another winner!
About the Brew Master - James Wilson
Thornbury’s Brewmaster James Wilson, thrives on creating well-made craft beers which are balanced and true to style – and if you ask us he does just that.
James discovered his passion for beer after travelling to Europe and learning about the vast array of styles that exist outside of the North American style of light tasting yellow lagers. After returning home, James began home brewing with a friend and later went on to obtain an IBD Brewing Certificate.
Currently, James and his team are working on expanding the great portfolio of Thornbury beers. After brewing a great Doppelbock and Baltic Porter, which recently won a Silver medal at the Canadian Brewing Awards, he has set his sights on developing a new IPA and Saison for release in the near future.
When James isn’t brewing a delicious Thornbury Craft Beer you can find him playing hockey, golf, or more often than not hiking somewhere with his dog Riker.
