Beer Around The Bay

The Beer Around the Bay: Summer Signature Tour showcases our region’s growing cluster of great breweries.

The tour is a collaborative effort between South Georgian Bay Tourism, RTO7 and Simcoe County Tourism.

Local breweries and The Beer Bus Company have banded together for the second year with 5 stops along The Beer Around the Bay: Summer Signature Tour. The initiative celebrates not just Southern Georgian Bay’s growing number of great breweries and beer, but also showcasing the region as one of Ontario’s fastest growing four-season tourism destinations.

For years there was only a single local brewery – Creemore Springs but recent years have presented four new breweries. Collingwood, Northwinds, Side Launch and Wasaga Beach Brewing Co. have arrived in the Collingwood, Wasaga Beach, Clearview region, providing yet another compelling reason for tourists to visit Simcoe County.

“What I love most about these breweries is that everybody is so passionate about their craft,” says Beer Bus Company owner/operator Paul Izdebski.

The Beer Bus offers a full-day tour which kicks off with a visit to Wasaga Beach Brewing Company for a tall boy Beach One Cerveza plus a Beach Survival Kit! Then it’s off to visit Creemore Springs Brewery for a full tour, flight samples, and special giveaway, then to Northwinds Brewhouse and Kitchen for a full flight of beer and a choice of lunch options from the custom Beer Around the Bay menu complete with a special giveaway.

After lunch, it’s off to Side Launch Brewing Company for a full tour and set of samples and another giveaway, and the tour winds up at The Collingwood Brewery for a full flight of beer plus a final take-home gift.

“The Beer Around the Bay Tour is an amazing full day tour that we are constantly recommending to visitors” says Melissa Twist, Regional Tourism Manager for South Georgian Bay.

“In addition to their growing line up of brewery events and tours, visitors also have a tremendous range of unique, small town shops, boutiques, restaurants and spas waiting to be discovered. And of course we live in an area where the great outdoors always beckons, with spectacular rolling hills and Georgian Bay all at your doorstep.”

Organizers say the popular Beer Around the Bay Signature Tour is selling out on select Saturdays over the course of the summer.
