2016 Canadian Brewery of the Year.To visit Side Launch Brewing Company on your holiday in Collingwood, and find out what else Collingwood has to offer, use our Collingwood.
Just a short drive from the base of Blue Mountain in Collingwood, Side Launch opened its doors in 2014 with the intention of providing Ontario with wonderfully complex and highly drinkable beer. Our focus is on traditional German styles with an occasional one-off or seasonal brew.
The name Side Launch comes from Collingwood’s rich history in ship building in the late 1800’s all the way through to the mid 1980’s. Due to the geographical constraints of our harbour, the large steel hulled boats had to be side launched into the water, instead of going in forward. These launches were dramatic events that brought people together from all over to celebrate.
We hope our beer can bring people together to celebrate just as much.
Side Launch Brewing Company Reviews
Had a great time at our first experience at Side Launch. The atmosphere is great, as you are fully immersed in the brewing experience from the moment you walk in. Lots of games on offer to entertain you as you sample their variety of beers. We really enjoyed the fact that there was some selection of beers that you wouldn’t otherwise find at the LCBO.
Really nice facility with a 15 minute tour with free samples. Helpful and friendly staff. Taryn was very informative about the products, helped us with our purchases and also gave us information about the area. The tour was informative but was hard to hear due to the music and therefore couldn't follow the flow. Liked the bar area. Lots of games that kept the kids as well as the adults entertained. My favorite was the Margarita Gose. My husband loves his brews and preffered the Getaway IPA.
