Check Out The Brewery

Our brewery and retail store is located just a stone’s throw from the South Muskoka River in Baysville, Lake of Bays, Ontario. We would kindly ask, however, that you not test this out by actually throwing rocks at us.

For over 10 years, Lake of Bays Brewing Company has been a mainstay of the Ontario craft beer scene. The brewery started as an idea by our president and founder, Darren Smith, in his university apartment. At the young age of 23, his dream became a reality, as patrons from around the area gathered to witness LB’s official ribbon cutting in May 2010.

Since then, our beer lineup has broadened to include everything from light lager to double IPA to stout, and we’re always experimenting with more styles and new flavours to bring to our fans. Our brewery has continued to grow over the years and now employs over 50 people.

But we haven’t stopped at just beer: in 2018, we introduced our first ever restaurant, the Huntsville Brewhouse, located in downtown Huntsville. The Brewhouse is now known for our delicious locally sourced menu and exclusive beer selection. Inside you’ll find our microbrewery where we come up with new recipes for our beers that you can only try at the restaurant.

And in 2020, we opened the Bracebridge Barrelhouse, located in Bracebridge, ON. Visit us at any of our three locations, where you can try our current lineup, brand-new flavours, and even the occasional retro beer from our back catalogue!
