farblog1It used to be wine and the people who carefully crafted it that got all the attention, but in recent years beer lovers have been rejoicing in the fact that breweries and brew pubs have finally gotten their day in the sun. While beer has always outsold wine by far it’s only recently that professional brewmasters and the pubs that serve their creations have become staples and innovators in communities around the world.

The Niagara region is a brewmaster’s dream, as hops and the other ingredients that are vital to a delicious beer are all grown in the area, so while Niagara’s wineries have usually garnered all the attention the local breweries are swiftly catching up.

Niagara Brewing Company opened in 2015 and has quickly become the pub of choice for beer lovers from all over the world. Here are just a few reasons why you should stop in for a pint or two during your next trip to Niagara Falls.

If you’ve been out exploring the area all day and simply need to take a break with a cold beer, you couldn’t pick a better place than the Niagara Brewing Company.

The Beers

Niagara Brewing Company offers a number of beers on tap, so there is ale, lager, or IPA that will appeal to just about anyone. Their Amber Eh ale boasts a hoppy flavor with notes of caramel and the Honeymoon Peach Radler is sweet in all the right places with a hint of ginger to create a smooth finish.

Their seasonal beers are definitely worth a try as well. The Hennepin Stout, White Canoe Wheat, and more are only available at certain times of the year, so be sure to ask your bartender what they’re featuring during your visit.
