A Greener Village

Happy New Decade from Thornbury Village Cider & Brew House! 

A new year brings on new initiatives! We are so pleased to start the new decade with green initiatives at our forefront. 

Single use plastic has been proven to have increasingly harmful effects on our environment & eco systems. The studies are shocking and the need for change is now. At Thornbury Village Cider & Brew House we are working towards swapping out plastic for environmentally conscious alternatives. We thought a key area to focus on would be our packaging, specifically our six pack holders. 

Introducing our newest addition… 

The E6PR (Eco Six Pack Ring) – COMPOSTABLE + REUSABLE! 

The E6PR is the first eco-friendly six pack ring made from by-product waste and other compostable materials. The E6PR uses wheat and barley waste from breweries as some of the compostable materials used for production of the 6 pack rings. When thrown away properly, the E6PR finds its way to a compostable facility where it will degrade in a few days. If it’s left out in open land or a water system it will degrade in a matter of weeks. Another amazing fact is that it’s made from 100% compostable organic materials that do not cause harm to wildlife if ingested.

The E6PR Compostable 6 Pack holder is an innovative alternative to commonly used plastic rings, that are used by most beer retailers in the market. It has been proven that plastic packaging is one of the leading causes of the plastic waste generated around the globe. Most plastics are not biodegradable resulting in microplastic fragment accumulation, which is a growing problem affecting marine wildlife and ocean pollution. Thornbury Village Cider & Brew House is striving to do our part in contributing to minimize the plastic waste in the beverage industry. 

Not only has the Eco Six Pack Ring inspired Thornbury Village Cider & Brew House to be more environmentally friendly, but it has already inspired our customers as well! The E6PR gives customers a unique opportunity to make their own contribution to a greener world. 

Please visit our retail store to pick up your favourite Thornbury ciders & beers in our compostable 6 pack holders. 

If you have already, we thank you very much for your contribution to a greener village and a greener YOU!

Enjoy Patio Season Year Round!


Canadians love patio season. Each year we count down the days until summer returns so we can soak in the sun with a beverage in hand! Patio season invokes sunshine, good times shared and toasting with friends and family. Our patio has become a hot spot for locals, as well as new comers visiting Grey County. We have visitors from all around the world and we pride ourselves on our welcoming and unique patio space conveniently located right off Highway 26.  

We are excited to share with you the newest addition at the Thornbury Village Cider and Brewhouse, the Patio Igloos! 

Instead of waiting a long 8 months each year for patio season, these patio igloos are the perfect way to extend patio season all year long, by shielding customers from all sorts of undesirable weather conditions. The transparent, cold-resistant cover will help keep the cold air out and the warmth in and allows for our customers to enjoy their flights and pints on the patio in a true Canadian style! Cheers to that.

Not only are these patio igloos new and exciting for us at Thornbury Village, but they are the very first patio igloos, for winter seating, in all of the Blue Mountains and Surrounding areas. Perhaps we’ve started a new trend, where patio season lasts year round! 

Are they warm? 

YES they are! Our igloos are similar to greenhouses. Once your group is inside they will stay extra cozy!

Did we mention the igloos are decorated with lights so you can enjoy them well into the evening? Check out this group last Saturday evening!

We hope to see you on our patio this winter! When visiting, tag us on on social media @thornburycraft to be featured on our feed.
