Niagara Falls Winery and Brewery Attractions and Tours

Craft Breweries & BrewPubs The Niagara Falls & area has a number of Craft breweries, brew pubs, wineries and even craft distilleries (subject to local liquor board approval). We were VERY surprised by the number we have found! There is a lot of interest in what is called "Beverage Tourism". This is perfect for those taking a kid-free vacation or weekend.

These establishments typically use locally-sourced inputs from their own or very nearby suppliers (some even using certified organic sources). Local barley, grains, grapes, etcetera can have a unique flavour due to the "terroir", imparted from the special soils, ground water, and rains to the crops that grow here.

Vineyards & Wineries Also, they are smaller, and apply their education, skills, and experience to create small batches of very special beverages. Because they are not trying to "maintain a brand" (which would require them to be scientifically consistent), they can afford to experiment, and try new and different combinations of materials, different timings, and sometimes non-traditional techniques and technologies to come up with something unusual, interesting, and VERY LOCAL. Consumers should consider themselves fortunate to be able to have the opportunity to enjoy such locally-produced drinks.

Niagara Falls & area has a number of craft breweries and wineries that create unique beverages. Most welcome you to take a tour (bring your I.D.), and visit their shops afterwards (samples may only be served, and alcoholic beverages may only be sold to those of legal drinking age or older).

DISCLAIMERS: (1) you must be of legal drinking age to consume any of these beverages; (2) exercise your own judgement about which drinks may be suitable for you; (3) when sampling, accept the host's judgement of appropriate sample sizes, and (4) drink responsibly, and DO NOT DRINK AND DRIVE.
