Ontario Craft Brewers is an association of 90+ small, independent brewers dedicated to making great tasting, high quality beer in Ontario. Ontario Craft Brewers brew their beers locally using fresh, all-natural ingredients in communities throughout Ontario - from the Ottawa Valley to Windsor, Niagara, Muskoka, and as far north as Kenora.
Handcrafting over 550 premium beers, Ontario Craft Brewers employ over 2,200 people (FTEs) in Ontario, accounting for over 30 per cent of the direct brewing industry jobs in the province.
As of 2017, Ontario's Craft Brewers' share of the provincial beer industry was over 7.7% of the beer volume sold. Craft beer also continues to be the fastest growing segment within the LCBO's beer category.
The OCB's long- term mission is to be a catalyst for growth in Ontario’s craft beer industry by creating an environment of inclusiveness, collaboration, advocacy, and innovation for all stakeholders. The vision is to be the unified voice for the Ontario craft beer industry.
