Our Newest Feature Craft Tap – Side Launch Brewery’s Mountain Lager


We’ve gone north of the GTA to bring you our newest feature craft tap.  It’s our pleasure to bring you Sidelaunch Brewery’s Mountain Lager.  We’ve heard so much about this brewery and the fantastic beers they’re producing, so we had to try it ourselves.  And we’re definitely impressed.  No surprise they were named 2016 Brewery of the Year at the Canadian Brewing Awards.  Come in and give it a try.  On now for a limited time.

Just a short drive from the base of Blue Mountain in Collingwood, Side Launch opened its doors in 2014.  Their focus is on traditional German styles with an occasional one-off or seasonal brew.
The name Side Launch comes from Collingwood’s rich history in ship building in the late 1800’s all the way through to the mid 1980’s. Due to the geographical constraints of the harbour, the large steel hulled boats had to be side launched into the water, instead of going in forward. These launches were dramatic events that brought people together from all over to celebrate.  Their hope is their beer can bring people together to celebrate just as much.
