Ashton Brewing Planning Expansion Into Relocated Historic Barn


ASHTON, ONCBC News reports that Ashton Brewing, the small brewery in the Old Mill at Ashton pub near Ottawa, has procured and relocated a disused barn in order to expand production.

Originally located approximately 80 km away in Wakefield, Quebec, the nearly 90-year-old barn was in a poor state of repair, and was blown over by a strong wind. The owner stacked and kept the salvageable wood, which has now been moved and will soon be reassembled next to the pub as a 6000-square-foot expansion.

According to the report, the cost of purchasing and relocating the barn was in the “thousands of dollars” range, but the brewery considers it a worthwhile investment to reach its goal of expanding sales of its beers into retail chains such as the LCBO.
