All equipment is designed with a comprehensive approach to energy conservation and resource management. Features include high-efficiency equipment such as components equipped with variable frequency drives to reduce unnecessary electricity demand; the most efficient steam boiler on the market; rectification boil technology that reduces primary energy consumption and reduces unnecessary evaporation, and a condenser turns remaining vapour into reusable hot water. We brew more beer in less time, using less energy and less water.
Cowbell has achieved a water-to-beer consumption ratio of 2.86:1 – much lower than the industry standard of 10-12:1. The brewery is a closed-loop facility with an onsite deep well supplying 100% of the brewing and process water. This design features our own effluent management system, resulting in zero impact on the municipal sanitary services infrastructure.
Carbon Sequestration Program
Our carbon sequestration program involves an on-site intensive, 28-acre reforestation project. The first project, a 2010 joint venture with the Maitland Valley Conservation Authority (MVCA), planted approximately 12,000 native tree and pollinator species to return the land back to forest. An additional 5,000 trees were planted in 2019.
The General Store
Located just inside the main entrance at Cowbell, the General Store is your official source for all things Cowbell. Built in the style of old general stores, all cabinets were built using reclaimed Hemlock beams from the oldest commercial building in Blyth. And yes, there is a rolling ladder.
Your source for Cowbell-branded everything: from t-shirts, sweatshirts, hats, hoodies, candles, mugs, and tasty beer-infused Cowbell Kitchen food items, to koozies, coasters, coolers and a full line of high quality, beer-specific Cowbell glassware.
Cowbell beer is available at the Cowbell General Store. Mix your own variety pack, grab six, eight or twelve packs, cases of 24, or kegs. Depending on when you visit, there may be limited edition, Cowbell Farm-exclusive small batches of unique Cowbell beer for sale in cans or custom bottles.
The Coolest Growlers
Cowbell’s Pegas growler filler was built with you in mind. This state-of-the-art system fills growlers under pressure, just like a production bottling line. This means zero oxygen pickup and your unopened growler of beer will remain delicious for up to 30 days, making this the next best thing to Cowbell draught beer at home.
Cowbell is a family-friendly, inclusive and fully-accessible destination. This includes thoughtful interior and exterior design strategies, an elevator, appropriate signage, and extends to all personal facilities such as restrooms and an adult changing station. Equally important is the commitment to team awareness, education, and front-line empowerment. Everyone is welcome at Cowbell.
The story of Blyth Cowbell Brewing Co.
Welcome to Cowbell!
Cowbell Brewing Co. is Canada’s Destination Brewery. The award-winning, family-friendly, accessible, sustainable, inclusive, social entrepreneurship is unlike anything else in Canada.
Located at the corner of Highways 4 and 25, in Huron County, Ontario, the state-of-the-art brewing facility is part of a 120-acre development just south of the village of Blyth, referred to as the Cowbell Farm.
Established in 2016, Cowbell is owned by a small group of successful craft beer enthusiasts. This ambitious enterprise is designed to have a positive local community economic impact, contribute to regional tourism opportunities, and support children’s healthcare across Ontario. Cowbell has been named one of Canada's Greenest Employers and is environmentally responsible by design.
Our commitment to the environment and our community
Working around the limitations of a small town water supply, Cowbell sources brewing water from an on-site well and manages all effluent through its own wastewater plant - resulting in no impact on the municipal system or the environment.

Unique Water Management
Through leading edge design, state-of-the-art technology, best practices and on-site carbon sequestration, Cowbell is committed to responsible environmental performance in all aspects of operations.
Inspired by stack technology used by Scotch whisky distilleries, this Cowbell innovation will dramatically reduce boil time, energy consumption and increase beer production.

award of excellence for environmental achievement
The building represents an "interpretation" of the traditional bank barn, however, houses many contemporary elements and state-of-the-art equipment. Special care and attention to detail were taken in detailing and execution, to celebrate the time-honoured tradition of timber-frame construction.
