"Most of the beers in our 2014 lineup are seasonal favourites! This year we are introducing three new ales, Ginger Beer, Simcoe Hopped Ale and Barrel Aged Beer," said Ed Koren, Brewmaster, Black Creek Historic Brewery. "Most of our ingredients are locally sourced and we use no artificial additives or preservatives. This allows us to be creative with new recipes and experiment with unusual flavours.

Located in Black Creek Pioneer Village, the Black Creek Historic Brewery is a working recreation of a 19th century brewery, an era when beer was both a popular beverage and a staple food.
