SOUTHAMPTON, ON – The worlds of country music and craft beer have come together in the small southwestern Ontario town of Southampton with the recent opening of Outlaw Brew Co..
Located in an historic building at the corner of Highway 21 and High Street, Outlaw is owned and operated by Deborah Leon & Andrew Woodley, with Woodley describing it as “a country/honkeytonk/live music brewpub that reflects the Outlaw Brew Co. lifestyle.”
The 10,000 square foot building includes a bar and restaurant area, a stage and dance floor for live music, and a second floor with an additional bar and seating.
What it doesn’t have yet is an on-site brewery – that’s planned for early 2015 – but in the meantime, the Outlaw house beers are being brewed under contract at Niagara College Brewery.
Four Outlaw beers are currently on tap – Outlaw Bandit (“a smooth drinking dark ale”), Outlaw Bronco (“a copper ale, distinctive in flavour with a country twang”), 2Lane Light Ale (“a crisp 4.2% ABV”), and 2Moon Junction (“a blueBEERy wheat brew, served up with fresh blueberries”) – with the remaining tap lines featuring beers from other local craft breweries including The Collingwood Brewery and Kilannan Brewing, as well as several national brands.
