About Formosa Springs

A Once Sleepy Brewery Has Awakened.

Nestled in Ontario’s South Bruce is one of Canada’s most historic breweries, Formosa Springs Brewery. Beer has flowed through this community for generations, since the first German settlers brought their love of traditional lager. In its day, Formosa Brewery reached wide into the county, delivering wooden cases of beer from horse-drawn wagons to surrounding hotels and homes. We’re producing a bit more beer these days, but we still take the same care and pride in crafting honest, classic lagers known for their amazing drinkability.

Think about it. What’s the most important ingredient in beer? Water.

There’s an age ol ’question about what actually is the most essential ingredient in making great beer. Grain. Yeast. Hops. Maybe even the brewer. All could all be contenders. We beg to differ. Beer, like our bodies, is mostly water. You do the math. Water is so important, that the purity, quality and mineral content in water from different locations will affect — sometimes deeply — the taste of the beer. At Formosa Springs Brewery you could say we won the lottery when it comes to having our own pure spring water source. When ancient glaciers receded over 10,000 years ago a pristine aquifer formed right in our backyard. And it’s the secret ingredient to our great tasting beer.
