Quench your thirst for craft beer, in Barrie

Barrie is home to a flourishing craft beer scene with breweries dreaming up new concoctions and a number of restaurants and locations specializing in serving up craft beer. Take a “Hop”, skip and a jump down to one of these places for some local cold ones.

Redline Brewhouse

If there are 2 things Redline Brewhouse takes seriously, its car puns, and beer. Try the coffee infused flavours of Pistols at Dawn or grab a flight with a tour of the brewery. Redline has there foot to the floor when it comes to all things craft.


Along with some distinct craft beer like the watermelon infused Wind-Shear Summer Ale, Barnstormers also hosts a ton of events including live music, trivia nights, and musical bingo! You’re clear for landing at this craft brewery.

Flying Monkeys

Serving up suds since 2002, Flying Monkeys offers up 12 taps of their very own brews like the barrel aged Forget Me Not along with live music, delicious food, and even a few take-a-book/leave-a-book shelves in the bathroom!

The Local Gastropub

With 16 beers on tap, all craft, you’re sure to find something to tickle your fancy at The Local Gastropub. This pub also has live music, board games and tasting events with perfectly curated combinations of beer and food.


While Bullseye does have other drinks like wine and spirits, the real attraction is their selection of craft beer like Barnstormers, Flying Monkeys, Red Thread, and Market Brewery. While you’re enjoying your drink you can also do the thing that makes everyone happier, hurl a small axe at a wooden board.


Having opened recently, Grillicious is coming out strong with a great selection of craft beers including Side Launch, Redline, and Lost Craft. With great food and live music, including jazz on Sunday afternoons, tap your toes and fill your belly at this downtown bistro.
