Westport Brewing Company is a craft brewery, offering well balanced, flavorful small batch handcrafted beer and tasty bites and boards of charcuterie, for its locals and seasonal visitors. Our brewhouse-behind-the-bar, 30 seat taproom and lakeside ‘back porch’, offer a comfortable place to sit back and relax with friends and family. Drop anchor here to taste our latest beers on tap or grab a Cottage Crowler (or a few) to go!
Westport Brewing Company opened its doors Thanksgiving Weekend 2018. Three friends, drawn to the natural beauty and abundant water surrounding the village of Westport, sought to create a special gathering place by the lake for family and friends that enriches the experience of the craft beer culture in this charming tourist destination-the heart of the Rideau Lakes! WATER, the essence of beer was an essential element in the lives of each of the founding members who are connected through childhood memories of camps, cottages, and boating. We continue the tradition of lakeside living today. It inspires our creativity, expressed in the art and science of making beer but more importantly in our desire to share this creative offering with our community in a special place where you come to meet old friends or make new ones.
The Westport Brewing Company prides itself on being a small, community-based destination serving fresh handcrafted beer with locally sourced small food accompaniments to complement the overall tasting experience, in a warm, locally inspired tasting room, in which the ‘brew house’ is the star attraction.
Westport Brewing Company is the first craft brewery in the village of Westport and surrounding area. With a prime waterfront location, adjacent to the municipal harbour on the western shore of the Upper Rideau River and retail frontage on Main Street, Westport Brewing Company is one of the ‘gateway’ businesses welcoming all boaters, cottagers and tourists to drink in the natural beauty of Westport; the quintessential cottage town where lakeside activity is ample, and small town life is simple.
We look forward to seeing you soon.
