SARNIA, ON – A brewery and restaurant from two local businessmen is now open in a historic building in downtown Sarnia.
Developer and realtor Mark Woolsey has opened The Tin Fiddler pub on the main floor, while partner John Tidball is overseeing operations at River Run Brew Co. in the refurbished 4000-square-foot basement.
River Run beers are currently available exclusively in the 70-seat Tin Fiddler, with an initial line-up that includes Sweet Nectar APA (5.7% abv, 32 IBU), River Run Blonde Ale (5.6% abv, 12 IBU), Coconut Cove Porter (5.1% abv, 25 IBU), Beastmaster Coffee Stout (5.8% abv, 32 IBU), and Red Lite Ale (4.6% abv, 37 IBU), plus several guest taps.
The food menu from chef Mike Cooper is focused on “high-end pub food”, with items including fish & chips, puffed quinoa onion rings, and lamb tacos.
The Tin Fiddler and River Run are located at 146-148 Christina St. in Sarnia. The pub and restaurant is currently in soft opening mode, with an official grand opening to take place sometime this week.
