Wine, Beer, Cider & Spirits

Although the vines are dormant during the winter months, there’s no better time to savour the fruits of our local vineyards’ labours.  Award-winning whites, reds, rosés, winter wines and ciders just taste better on a cold winter’s day in front of a fire.  Pair up your favourite with a sampling of cheese and mmmm….Nirvana!  Specializing in brewery tours, the Beer Bus makes it easy to tour, sip and sample local beer, cider and wine in the South Georgian Bay area.
The Saints & Sinner pocket map is the perfect guide to the craft beer producers, wineries, distilleries and cideries in BruceGreySimcoe. 

Take A Tour!

(check ahead for operating hours and current COVID-19 protocols - admission may be limited)



Sip and savour a delicious glass of wine at one of BruceGreySimcoe’s five wineries.  Book a tour and tasting, attend a special event or snowshoe through the vines before warming up in the tasting room to sample wine and goodies.  If you love craft cider, you’re in for a treat – most of these wineries produce their own cider, too. 
Please check ahead for operating hours and current COVID-19 protocols. Note that tours may not be running in some locations.


What can we say?  We LOVE our beer!  The craft brewery industry is growing by leaps and bounds in BruceGreySimcoe.  No matter where you are in the region, you can enjoy a local brew at a restaurant, pub, a brewpub or the brewery itself.  Many of these are now available at the LCBO and can be ordered online, too.

With an apple-rich region located within our borders, it’s no wonder that the number of craft cider producers is aiming to keep pace with our breweries!  Crisp and refreshing, cider lovers can source these bevvies locally, in various LCBOs or, in some cases, order online direct from the cidery.

Wineries That Produce Cider


Whisky, Gin & Vodka


With the crisp and fresh water of Georgian Bay as an ingredient, it’s no wonder the spirits produced here have a quintessential Canadian flavour, namely Canadian Mist and Collingwood Whisky.  The award-winning gin and vodka from the Georgian Bay Spirit Co. sources its water from Springwater Township.  Their two “smash” beverages – Georgian Bay Gin Smash and Georgian Bay Vodka Smash – are both refreshing and popular.
Beattie’s Distillers is a unique “farm to bottle” distillery, creating their Farm-Crafted Potato Vodka from their very own potatoes grown on their family farm in Alliston.  This family has been potato farmers for over 100 years and are the first craft distillery in Ontario to produce premium potato vodka.  Distilling and bottling are done on-site.  Tastings and tours must be booked ahead of time (check ahead for availability, tours may not be running at this time).
All of the above spirits can be found at the LCBO – if not at your local store, many producers now have online stores or visit the LCBO website where you can order online.
