Here, perfect strangers talk to each other on the street and in the grocery store. It’s a relaxed vibe we like to think we’ve captured in our beer.
We set out to make well-crafted, balanced beers designed to draw in people who haven’t discovered craft beer…and delight those who do. Which is probably why we keep on winning awards.
Meet Chris Freeman, our Head Brewer & Co-Founder
He switched paths to follow that dream, going back to school and graduating Summa cum laude as part of Niagara College’s first Brewmaster and Brewery Operations Management cohort.
He cut his teeth learning to make great lagers at Creemore Springs Brewery, then moved his family to Collingwood, where he opened The Collingwood Brewery with partners he found along the way. Many years and over a dozen awards later, you’ll find Chris on the production floor doing what he does so well: brewing our core beers and terrific one-offs brews while dazzling everyone with his terrific singing voice. Opera to Disney, this guy can do it all.
Meet our Production Team
Chris brews it…these fellas can it, box it and get it out the door. Without this group of hard-working guys, the Collingwood Brewery would be like a dairy cow bawling for its evening milking. In early, out late…nobody ever needs to tell them what to do. Many of our team come from Collingwood’s First Families, so we consider ourselves lucky that they allow us newcomers to hang around (so far, at least).
