LEAMINGTON, ON – Ontario’s newest craft brewery has opened its doors in Leamington, a community in the province’s Windsor-Essex region.
Cured Craft Brewing has been founded by Scott and Lisa Bradt, and has a multi-layered meaning to its name. The couple also owns Bradt’s Butcher Block across the street, where Scott cures meats; Lisa cures people in her job as a nurse; and the historic building where the brewery is located was built in 1911 by William T. Gregory, who brought the process of flue-curing tobacco from North Carolina and introduced it to local tobacco farmers.
The brewery opened its retail shop last week with a selection of beers available in cans including Colonel G’s Cream Ale (5.3% abv), 42nd Parallel Lager (4.3% abv), Triple ‘A’ IPA (6% abv), Pelee Pilsner (5% abv), Honey Badger Wheat Ale (5.2% abv), S.O.S. Southern Ontario Stout (5% abv), and Swill On Mill Pale Ale (5.4% abv).
The facility also includes a taproom that will be open to serve draught beer and food once COVID-19 restrictions are loosened, and online beer sales will also be offered via the brewery’s website in the future.
Cured Craft Brewing is located at 43 Mill St. West in Leamington, and is currently open for retail sales on Thursday to Saturday from 11:00 AM to 6:00 PM, and Sunday from 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM.
