William Street Beer Co. Opening Soon in Cobourg, Ontario


COBOURG, ON – The town of Cobourg, Ontario, will soon be home to one of the province’s rapidly increasing number of new craft breweries, with the opening of William Street Beer Co. planned for early 2014.

Founded by Sean Walpole – a long-time homebrewer who spent much of his childhood visiting his grandmother in the small town 60 miles east of Toronto on the shore of Lake Ontario – the 1,250 square foot brewery will be located at 412 William St. and will offer beer “inspired by the community’s unique balance of agricultural and Great Lake marine heritage.”

Brewing on a 3 barrel system with an expected annual output of 200 barrels, William Street will launch with two flagship brands – Cliff Top Pale Ale and North Shore Blonde – which will be joined by a rotating line-up of seasonal beers and one-offs. All beers will be available in 650 ml bottles at an on-site retail store, as well as on draught at local bars and restaurants.
