Founded in 2012, Big Rig Brewery began on a modest 10 barrel system. Today, Big Rig is the largest craft brewery in our Nation’s Capital.

Doing it all for the love of beer has led to New Brewery of the Year in Ontario (2013) and multiple awards at the Canadian and Ontario Brewing Awards.

Dedicated to pure craftsmanship and using only the best quality ingredients, Big Rig Brewery takes great pride in reinventing classic styles and crafting emerging ones.
