About Fenelon Falls Brewing Co.

Fenelon Falls Brewing Co. was founded by husband and wife, Vinh and Agatha. Vinh immigrated to Canada in the 1970s, arriving in Fenelon Falls not knowing a soul, a word of English, or really having a place that felt like home. That didn’t last long. The village welcomed his family unequivocally in every way. It’s a great Canadian story.

Fenelon Falls Brewing Co. is an expression of all of that—accepting opportunities and applying the effort necessary to put a bit of good into the world. The intention throughout is to shine a light on the people, the heritage, and the life of the region. It’s a way of saying thanks, playing a part in the life of the community, and paying forward the tradition of hospitality that meant so much to them.

The Fenelon Falls Brewing Co. offers hand-crafted premium beer made in small batches in our Canadian-made brewhouse. We’re proud to say that everything we source is produced naturally by quality-minded people. Our brewing philosophy is to keep our ingredients simple and our processes to a minimum to make beer that allows the flavors and aromas to shine through. Of course, all our beer is brewed with no additives and no preservatives. The way it should be.
