As with any new venture, the Cowbell story began with a dream. In 2016, when a group of successful craft beer enthusiasts looked out at the more than 120 acres of Huron County farmland at the corner of Highways 4 and 25, they saw more than a tractor. They saw a place where friends could gather for good times, delicious food, and great beer. They saw Cowbell Country.
Their dream was an ambitious one. As Canada’s Destination Brewery, Cowbell had to be accessible, inclusive, sustainable, socially responsible, and family-friendly. It had to provide folks with a place to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life, while embracing family and friends, wholesome food, and the craftsmanship and care that goes into every Cowbell beverage.
Cowbell Brewing Co. opened its doors on August 5, 2017. Today, guests can experience firsthand Cowbell’s grand old barn architecture, state-of-the-art brewing and packaging facility, family-friendly restaurant, brewhouse bar, fully-equipped games room and tented beer garden.
