The Ontario Craft Brewers is a united voice that ensures a thriving craft beer industry in Ontario.
With over 100 members in communities across the province, the OCB provides an opportunity to add your voice to our work with government, regulators, and industry partners to promote and advance Ontario’s craft beer industry. Members also receive access to industry analytics, special offers and discounts, and our LCBO merchandising program to keep their business on the cutting edge.
Brewers are the heart and soul of the OCB. Big or small, urban or rural, every craft brewery has a home at the OCB.
In addition to providing you with a voice at the table with government, OCB membership offers a range of benefits and cost-savings opportunities.
