Thornbury Village Cidery A Traditional Cider
Using traditional Old-World techniques, we at Thornbury Village Cider are committed to producing premium quality apple cider. We craft our ciders in small batches, from locally sourced, fresh pressed apples, taking our time to do it right, to produce a truly Canadian taste, with the dry, crispness of a traditional English cider.
The Next Chapter... Thornbury Village Brewery
In 2015, Thornbury Village Cidery gained 15 years of brewing heritage by acquiring King Brewery. King Brewery came with a long history of producing premium lagers and all products were rebranded under Thornbury Village Brewery. Today, we are one of the only decoction method brew houses in Canada. Our beer is carefully handcrafted, and we are committed to crafting small-batch European style Pilsners and Lagers that are true to traditional style, with the added freshness of a local product. The commitment to quality has proudly placed Thornbury Village Craft Beer on the award-winning map.
We are excited to announce the addition of our new Full-Sized Brewery in Thornbury! Since the first day that we got involved with this great company, we have had a vision to make this Canada’s leading Cidery and Brewery Experience.
The Story of Clark The Pig
While learning more about our century old, historic building and the history in our area, we came to discover that Thornbury and Clarksburg, had a long-standing relationship. But the most interesting bit of information was what we discovered in a book of local history. There it was, a picture of an old poster advertising the 1912 Clarksburg Fair – a poster featuring a dapper gentleman riding a very large pig. That was the day that Clark the Pig was born.
Clark the Pig is a significant part of the Thornbury Cider Experience. If you look around, you will find that he is featured all over the Cider House. He is always driving some sort of conveyance, but what he drives tends to change depending on which style of cider you’re holding. It’s our way to ensure that there is a little Clarksburg in every can of Thornbury Cider.
