It all started more than 25 years ago with two friend’s dream to one day open up a brewery. The dream began to come to life three years ago at Shawn’s cottage. With the two of us sitting by the lake, beers in hand, we looked at each other and asked “Is it time?” We knew it was.
Authenticity was key, which meant no short cuts and taking our time to find the perfect location to brew the best possible beer. When the old Dundas Curling and Skating Rink went up for sale a couple of years ago, they knew they had found the perfect location. What Canadian wouldn’t want to put a brewery inside an old curling and skating rink?
This building has a tremendous amount of character and history and their mission was to restore as much of it as possible. Tehy wanted the Shawn & Ed Brewing Company to bring the building’s rich history back to life.
