Come to Stratford early and stay late! Construction delays may be significant in summer 2019 so be sure not to miss out on any fun!
Hwy 6 to Embro/401: Replacement of large culvert Aug-Nov
Expect delays but road will not be closed. Hwy 7 detour is suggested as above, if there is an overlap.
Hwy 8 between Stratford and Shakespeare: In progress
Beginning in early June, stretches of this road between the west end of Shakespeare and the east end of Stratford will be reduced on weekdays to a single lane, with flag people controlling traffic in both directions. Delays may be lengthy, so please allow additional time for your trip. (Both lanes are expected to be open on evenings and weekends.)
Our craft brewery is located in Shakespeare, Ontario, a quaint town 10 minutes from the beautiful city of Stratford, Ontario. Our brewery is located on the main highway through Shakespeare. The building was once used as an old school bus garage and makes a perfect space for a brewery. We have a few regular beers available as well we will have some seasonal/ special batch beers periodically. Our space has our brew house with a small retail space inside. All beers are available to purchase in 500ml bottles.
At Shakespeare Brewing Company we believe in beer made with Ontario grown ingredients for a true Ontario taste. In the past beer was made from all local ingredients. Pending on which region or country you were in, you would have had a different tasting beer. With this in mind, we are using 100% local ingredients so our beer will show you exactly what an Ontario beer tastes like. All while supporting other small local businesses.
Don’t miss the fun due to construction delays!
“Stratford itself is the type of walkable wholesome town Rodgers and Hammerstein might write a musical about.”
