New Ontario Brewing Company

New Ontario Brewing Company opened in North Bay on September 23rd, 2015. Since then, our brewers have been crafting delicious beer and our friendly staff have been serving up smiles.

The brewery was started to bring truly Northern Ontario products to the local marketplace. As lifelong friends and passionate beer fans, we decided to set up shop at the corner of Cassells Street and the by-pass, right along the Trans-Canada Highway.

We are community oriented and focused, and participate in tonnes of local events and support local initiatives. This is why we got into the beer business, to make sure that our community had a product that we can be proud of, and to showcase Northern Ontario initiative throughout the province.

We have grown alot since our open, and as much as we loved our Cassells street location, it was far to small to fulfill our ever growing brewery. So, we moved to our new location at 1401 Seymour. This move has been over a year long process but we are happy to say we are settled in and ready to serve. We held our grand open on Sept 12, 2020.

 Come join us. The beer is flowing strong.



At New Ontario Brewing Company, we believe that fresh ingredients, combined with creativity and craftsmanship, lead to a superior product that our customers will appreciate as being distinctly different from the large producers. Our flagship and seasonal beers allow us to continue experimenting and perfecting our craft. 

Our History

Built in 1907, The New Ontario Brewery Co. Ltd., was in business for only eight years. The facility stood at the corner of Stanley and Regina Streets. The site of the brewery's dump on Monk Street occasional yields an old bottle from the brewery's era. Frank Schaller of Chicago was the brewmaster and Charles Blyth was the bookkeeper. The brewery was destroyed by fire in 1915.
