One of the fastest growing craft breweries in Ontario, Lake of Bays Brewing Company is located right in the heart of Baysville and offers a diverse range of products sure to satisfy craft beer connoisseurs and newcomers alike. The brewery began with 4 employees and now employs over 40 full-time staff, with widespread distribution across Ontario as well as Manitoba and the Maritimes.
The community of Baysville was chosen as a location for the business due to the friendly local atmosphere and beautiful surroundings. Situated a stone's throw from Lake of Bays, the brewery welcomes thousands of visitors annually as a cottage and tourist destination. The region’s heritage, culture and natural beauty are represented in the product branding and labelling profiles. The Township of Lake of Bays has been supportive throughout, including planning, rezoning, site approvals and building permits.
"We chose Lake of Bays because it's a well-recognized, high-traffic summer destination, with easy access to the highway for distribution. We saw the brand-building opportunity and the chance to really make ourselves part of a community." - Darren Smith, President & CEO - Lake of Bays Brewing Company
