Simcoe, Bruce and Grey Counties are experiencing a major beverage renaissance. Once a hotbed for bootleggers during Prohibition, the area now boasts several thriving (and completely above-board) alcohol producers. Wineries, distilleries, craft breweries and cideries are using locally-grown grapes, potatoes and apples to produce some of the best beverages in North America. The multiple awards our producers have brought home is ample proof that we brew it right. Use the Saints and Sinners map to find your way around Simcoe, Bruce and Grey Counties to tour farms and facilities, enjoy tastings, pairings or full meals, and pick up a huge variety of beverages to bring home. You can also enjoy home-grown festivals and events that celebrate the very best of the area.
