Side Launch Brewing Company


Our story begins in 2014, and our four core brands quickly made a name for our company in the craft beer industry.  We aimed to continuously produce quality, traditional flavours and were awarded the 2016 Canadian Brewery of the Year.

Today, we still make many of the same great beers which are available in over 800 retail stores and 200 bars and restaurants across Ontario.  

People always gathered in Collingwood to celebrate a side launch. Why? For over a century, the locally-built ships that launched sideways into the harbour were a symbol of Ontario at its best: a hard-working place of grain, grit, rock trails, rich soil, forest and big water. Where people appreciate well-crafted beer made for them.
