Bob Hanenberg, Owner/President
Bob is enjoying every minute of living his dream. For the past 30 years, Bob had been employed in the Standardbred racing industry as a farrier and then as a Ontario Racing Commission judge at the Standardbred race tracks. He has always had a love for great beer, wine and food. During a family holiday in Paris France in March 2005, he saw a wonderful brew pub and the seeds were planted. After he came home, he slowly started to do his research about opening a microbrewery.
Through the internet he found several websites selling used brewing systems of all sizes and manufacturers. Very quickly a system came available that he purchased at auction in Wisconsin. Now the dream was starting to take shape. The equipment arrived home in Brantford but a building could not be found. Almost 12 months later, the Galt Knife building was purchased and finally the equipment had a new home.
The first beers were sold June 22, 2007 from the retail store and several local pubs.
